Here’s Why You Should Have An Emergency Dentist’s Phone Number Handy

Teeth-related problems can arise at any hour of the day, and may deprive you of a good night’s sleep. To address these problems, you may need to visit one of the emergency dentists in the middle of the night. So, you must keep their number handy.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth appear relatively late, and their emergence can be quite painful sometimes. For instance, if there is no room for emerging wisdom teeth, you may experience severe pain. In this case, the pressure on the adjacent molar and jaw may call for immediate attention. So, you might need to look for an emergency dentist, who can help you get rid of the pain, caused by impacted wisdom teeth. It is important to understand that other problems, such as decay or gum disease, can also cause teeth pain, well after your wisdom teeth have emerged.

Dry Socket

If you have had a tooth pulled out (tooth extraction) recently, you may experience throbbing pain because of the lack of formation of a blood clot. The absence of the clot can result in the inflammation of the alveolar bone, which may be so painful that even strong analgesics might not help. That being said, if you experience the pain late at night, it is highly recommended that you go and visit an emergency dentist there and then, instead of waiting till the next morning.

Trauma

An accident can cause a serious injury to your teeth or the periodontium. If that happens, you must seek immediate treatment. Any delay, especially in case of an avulsed permanent tooth, can result in further complications.
