Dental emergencies are serious, and it’s important to know whether your current situation is an emergency or not. If you’re currently experiencing harsh toothache and experiencing excruciating tooth pain, it might be time to see an emergency dentist.
If you find yourself experiencing tooth related problems on Sunday, you should Call 877-229-7977 immediately and you will be quickly matched with a pre screened dentist to see you on Sunday.
Unfortunately, on Sundays, all local dentists are closed so you will need to get in touch with an emergency dentist. However, visiting an emergency dentist can be expensive so it’s important to identify what problems you might have, and whether your situation is a real emergency. Because emergency dentists are often busy, they prefer to only deal with tooth problems that are considered serious.
If you are currently experiencing harsh tooth pain, and have experienced it for several hours, this is a valid reason to find an emergency dentist for a consultation.
Tooth ache for several hours can be attributed to several things, so it’s important to get it checked out. It’s understandable that you can no longer deal with the pain. In fact, in 2011, 80% of males and females stated that tooth ache is the worst pain they have experienced, and it’s wonder why. Because tooth ache happens very rarely, you aren’t used to the pain. So, when tooth ache does occur, it’s usually extremely painful.
Before consulting an emergency dentist though, you should use safe drugs such as paracetamol and ibuprofen to see if it will take the pain away temporarily. These can be found in any dental emergency kit. If over-the-counter drugs do not work for your pain, your situation is now considered an emergency and you should consult an emergency dentist as soon as possible.
Another scenario is in the event of your tooth cracking, or chipping. If you have chewed a strong solid food and have chipped your tooth, it’s extremely important that you consult an emergency dentist as quickly as possible. Because your tooth is now cracked and/or chipped, bacteria can now easily make it’s way into the tooth. The longer you leave it, the longer you’ll be in pain for.
Additionally, infections inside the gum and tooth can lead to gum disease. It’s common for teeth to be removed as a result of cracks, chips and cracks that haven’t been dealt with. Instead of waiting till tomorrow, you should head straight to an emergency dentist where you can get a permanent or temporary filling to ease the pain and deal with the situation at hand.
If you are experiencing tooth ache, your nerves are telling you that something is wrong. Because you aren’t able to see what’s wrong, there is no way you can treat it yourself. Only a specialist dentist will be able to identify what the issue is, and how severe the problem is. Your tooth ache could be a sign of disease onset, or something simple as food stuck in your teeth.
You only get one pair of teeth, so it’s important that you take care of them. Sometimes, this means consulting an emergency dentist. Finding an emergency dentist on Sunday can be difficult. Sunday is the day of the week where dentist’s like to take breaks and retire from their heavy work load. However, real dental emergencies can still be treated.
