There are times when patients come in for general care expecting a clean bill of health, only to learn they have an issue with dental decay or gum disease that should be addressed. The good news is that when problems are caught before discomfort begins, care becomes easier and more conservative. Timing matters when it comes to dental work. This is true when it comes to problems that occur over time, like cavities and gingivitis, but it also applies to potential dental emergencies. Our Greensboro, NC dental office is here to help if you are worried about dental pain, an injury, or another problem. Prompt care will help you shorten the time you spend in pain, and it lowers your risk for experiencing further difficulties.
A Dental Injury Can Be More Severe Than You Expect
If you try to tell yourself that the pain after a dental injury is manageable, that the damage to your tooth is “not that severe,” or that you have time before you need to say something about a toothache, you can put your overall oral health at risk. Ignoring a possible dental emergency puts you at risk for complications from an infection as well as further harm to tooth structure and surrounding tissues. We want patients to know that we are here for them when a problem appears urgent, and that we can resolve the matter without changing how they look.
Coming In For Prompt Dental Work
Contact us as soon as you can when you think you are experiencing a dental emergency. When you do so, we can discuss the matter with you and prepare for you to come in for treatment. During this call, you can also receive helpful tips to manage discomfort and protect a vulnerable tooth.
When you are in the office, we will promptly provide an evaluation and look at what treatment may require. As with any issue affecting your oral health, we will look for the most conservative solution we can recommend.
