Emergency Dental Services Offered at Our Office
Every dentist has a different definition of emergency dental services. At Victorian Village Dental Care, a dental emergency is a situation in which immediate treatment is needed to relieve pain and discomfort or to prevent infection or blood loss.
Some examples of dental emergencies that we treat at our Columbus, Ohio office include:
- Severe toothache – pain is usually intense and comes on suddenly
- Severely chipped, cracked or broken teeth
- Loose permanent teeth
- Some soft tissue injuries
- Exposed nerve – often occurs when a tooth is damaged either by injury or severe decay
- Swollen or bleeding gums that won’t stop
- Broken or lost dental fillings
- Abscesses or infection
What To Expect When Receiving Emergency Dental Care
Most emergency dental problems cannot be treated in a single appointment. However, that doesn’t mean you will continue to be in pain or discomfort until the issue is addressed.
During your appointment, Dr. Martinez will do a thorough examination and come up with both a short-term and a long-term treatment plan. The short-term treatment plan is focused on providing immediate, yet temporary, relief from serious issues such as pain, swelling, bleeding and infection. The long-term treatment plan focuses on addressing the underlying issues that caused your problems.
This approach provides immediate pain relief. Patients do not have to continue suffering until their next scheduled appointment. It also gives our patients time to think about how they wish to proceed with treatment.
We understand that patients who come to us for dental emergencies are in pain and often are not up to making important decisions about their dental care. By providing immediate pain relief, we are able to make patients comfortable and give them more time to think about their treatment options.
