An emergency dentist can provide urgent professional dental care for issues such as infection, damaged teeth, knocked out teeth, and more. Emergency dental care is a standard service offered at Alpine Dental Associates.
No matter how much someone attempts to prepare ahead of time, accidents happen. Dental accidents and emergencies are no exception. Dental emergencies can include infections, tooth decay, damaged teeth, trauma to the mouth, and more. By visiting an emergency dentist, you are seeking the immediate care your teeth need.
Prolonging the time between injuring one's teeth and seeing an emergency dentist will only increase the chance of the issue causing, irreversible damage. By seeking treatment with us, we will provide the treatment needed to help prevent further damage or tooth loss. Our goal is to save as many natural teeth as possible while preserving the patient's oral health.
If you need an emergency dentist, do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible for professional dental treatment.
Reasons for Needing an Emergency Dental Visit
The American Dental Association reported that the number one cause of adult tooth damage every year is playing sports. This spans all types of athletics and creates the need for emergency appointments throughout Omaha NE. Even a backyard game of basketball can lead to someone damaging a tooth or someone knocking a player's tooth out. The same holds true for kids playing sports as well. While there are ways to protect yourself like wearing a mouth guard, a dental emergency is still possible. When an emergency strikes call 402-391-0459.
Car accidents are another leading cause of tooth injury. While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it may not be strong enough to prevent your tooth from breaking when colliding with the steering wheel. With millions of accidents a year, teeth are a common victim. We recommend that patients of Alpine Dental Associates get examined at a local emergency room after being in a car accident; just to make sure that they have not sustained any physical injuries. Afterward, call us for a dentist's appointment. The emergency room does not treat tooth damage, so you will need to see both types of medical providers.
