Dental Emergencies

What is a Dental-Related Emergency?

Dental emergencies can strike at any time and leave you in pain and feeling frustrated. Treatment of emergencies is recommended because it prevents any intraoral problems from getting worse. Dr. Redfearn is here to take you in for your emergency and offer high-quality treatment as needed. Our practice is equipped to handle many different types of emergencies as well as all kinds of patients’ needs.

Why do you need treatment for a Dental Emergency?

If you forgo treatment for an emergency, it is likely to get worse or won’t go away. Issues like an abscess, broken tooth or severe decay won’t fix themselves. It is important that you receive immediate care for your emergency so that you can get back to living a comfortable life. If you’re in severe pain, it is important to be seen by Dr. Redfearn as soon as you possibly can.

What are common Dental Emergencies?

Dental emergencies can range from being more annoying and problematic to causing excruciating pain or discomfort. No emergency is too big or too small for us to handle. It is important to contact our office so that we can get you in for an appointment. Some of the more common emergencies we see regularly include:

• Tooth Pain
• Abscesses and Infections
• Lost Restorations (bridges, crowns, fillings, veneers)
• Chipped or Broken Teeth
• Orthodontic Emergencies
• Bleeding and Inflamed Gums
• Broken Prosthetic (denture)

What can you expect when being seen for an Emergency?

We’ll work to get you into the office quickly to be seen by Dr. Redfearn. We work with both new and existing patients so that they can have their emergency handled as soon as possible. You will be seated and have an x-ray taken, if necessary, so that we can diagnose the problem. We will begin treatment as soon as possible so that the issue is resolved. If you have an infection, we may prescribe antibiotics before you’re able to have the work completed.

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, contact us today and our office staff will work quickly to get you in as soon as possible.
