Is an unbearable toothache ruining your day? A dental emergency can throw your plans into limbo and leave you wondering, “How can I get emergency dental care near me?” If you don’t address your symptoms, you could do long-term damage to your overall dental health, so getting emergency dental care is about far more than just pain relief.

Here’s Where to Find Your Emergency Dentists

When you need emergency dental care during business hours, our emergency dentists in New Baltimore are here to provide efficient and caring treatment so that you can stop focusing on pain and resume your normal life. Call our emergency dental office during our operating hours to schedule an appointment. We’ll do everything we can to ensure that you are seen as quickly as possible. Our goals are to diagnose your condition, relieve pain, and ensure that you get the treatment you need to avoid further problems.

We provide dental emergencies with same-day treatment, yet there may be a slight wait.

The Emergency Dental Services We Provide

Emergency dental services are essential for managing unexpected symptoms and injuries. Getting urgent dental care when you need it can keep a small dental problem from turning into a big one. Here are some of the common emergency services we provide during business hours:

  • Toothache diagnosis and pain relief
  • Treatment of impacted wisdom tooth symptoms, such as pain and swelling
  • Replacement of lost fillings and crowns
  • Repairs to cracked or chipped teeth
  • Treatment of common dental infections
  • Emergency tooth extraction
  • Treatment of pain or other problems caused by damaged orthodontic appliances

When Is It Time to Obtain Emergency Dental Treatment?

I have a dental problem, but I don’t know if it’s an emergency. When should I seek emergency dental care near me?

Any dental problem that causes you significant pain, that interferes with your ability to concentrate or function, or that could become worse without treatment deserves emergency dental care. Here are several examples of conditions that our emergency providers treat.

Broken or Fractured Teeth

If you have a broken or fractured tooth, getting prompt care can help prevent infection and structural damage. Contact us for more information about scheduling your treatment.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If you act quickly, our emergency dentists may be able to reimplant your knocked-out tooth. Be sure to handle it carefully after the accident. Rinse the tooth with warm water while holding it by its crown; never touch the root. Place the tooth back into its socket if possible. If this isn’t accomplished easily, store it inside your cheek instead. Call us immediately for more detailed instructions.

Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure

A toothache can cause serious pain, and it may have equally serious underlying cause. Obtain treatment for your tooth pain as soon as you can. Be sure to report any additional symptoms like ear pain, pressure, or fever.

Tooth Sensitivity

Sensitive teeth aren’t always an emergency, but you may need urgent dental care if your teeth become suddenly sensitive without explanation. Tooth fractures and infections may present as unexpected tooth sensitivity.

Dental Decay (Cavities)

Emergency dentists treat the pain that arises suddenly when progressive tooth decay exposes sensitive tooth roots and nerves.

Abscessed Tooth

Whether it’s related to an injury or gum disease, an abscessed tooth can be a source of severe pain. Other symptoms to watch out for include facial swelling, bad breath, pus-filled sores on the gums, swollen glands, and fever. If you think that you may be suffering from an abscess, call our emergency dental office right away to schedule treatment. An untreated abscess can lead to serious medical problems.

Lost or Loose Fillings

A loose or absent filling leaves the affected tooth at risk for further decay and damage. Don’t postpone treatment; we can easily replace your filling and protect your vulnerable tooth.

Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations

A broken crown or missing restoration is far more than a cosmetic flaw. Your teeth are weak and vulnerable to decay without a protective covering. Our emergency dentists can create a temporary or permanent replacement to protect your dental health and restore your smile.

Orthodontic Pain or Injuries

When the brackets and metal wires on your braces shift or break, pain, irritation, and injury to your mouth tissues may occur. We can treat your wounds and stabilize your orthodontic components so that further injury will be less of a concern.

Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding

Many people grind their teeth while they sleep. If you also have this habit, your tooth enamel probably shows some excess wear. Our emergency dentists can protect your enamel with strengthening treatments and provide advice and dental appliances to help reduce your nighttime grinding habit.

Sinus Pressure

Sinus pressure feels like it comes from your sinuses, and this may be the case. However, some dental problems can cause the same sensation. If you have unexplained sinus pressure, schedule an appointment so that we can explore possible dental causes such as impacted teeth or undetected infections.

Dental Care Isn’t Always Enough

My knocked-out tooth was caused by a serious fall, and I’m feeling dizzy. Should I go to the emergency dental office near me or see my doctor?

If you’ve developed a symptom or sustained an injury that could endanger your general health or your life, emergency dentists in New Baltimore cannot provide adequate treatment. When you have symptoms such as severe bleeding, severe facial swelling or injuries to the head, jaw, or face, have someone drive you to the nearest hospital or to your primary care physician’s office before seeking dental care. If you are alone and unable to drive, call 911 for assistance.

Managing Dental Emergency Costs

The cost of your emergency dental care will depend on several factors, including the types of treatments you receive. Our emergency dentists can provide an estimate for you after evaluating your condition. We accept most dental insurance plans and major credit cards. Financing options are also available. If you don’t have insurance, you may be interested in our DentRite® discount plan. Although it’s not an insurance plan, it offers significant savings on common dental treatments and procedures. Everyone qualifies for coverage, and there are no usage limits.

My dental accident happened on a weekend. Will I need to wait until the emergency dental office near me opens?

If you experience painful symptoms when our emergency dentists in New Baltimore are not in the office, there’s no need to suffer or jeopardize your dental health by delaying treatment. Simply proceed to your local hospital emergency room and request care. If your symptoms return or you develop a new dental problem during our regular office hours, please give us a call.
