What is Emergency Dentistry?
Emergency dentistry, as also known as urgent dental care, refers to dentistry services done on an emergency basis. Dental emergencies can happen at the most unexpected times and leave you feeling like you have nowhere to turn. Our office provides emergency dentistry services for new and existing patients in need of help fast.
Who Needs Emergency Dentistry?
No one plans to have a dental emergency, but dental emergencies can happen as the result of suddenly loosened or impacted tooth, a tooth falling out, sudden mouth pain, or a variety of other dental problems. Often, people may go to the hospital for a dental emergency, but they actually need a dental professional to completely treat the problem.
What is an Emergency Dentistry Appointment Like?
Because dental emergencies vary across patients, no two appointments are the same. However, all appointments begin with a consultation to determine the full extent of the problem or pinpoint the exact cause of pain. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Fields will talk to you about the options for treatment. Some of the common procedures in emergency dentistry are root canals, oral surgery, and tooth extraction. Following the procedure, Dr. Fields will recommend any necessary follow-up or aftercare.
The Cost of Emergency Dentistry in Atlanta, GA
Emergency dentistry involves a variety of treatments and services. Because each emergency dentistry case is different, we cannot predict the cost of all emergency dental services. However, our office works with each patient to make financing emergency dental services a realistic option for most.
