Why Do Patients Need Emergency Exams?

If you’re suffering from severe dental pain, an exam can help you get the relief you need. You may also need one because your mouth is bleeding uncontrollably, or you were hit in the mouth with enough force to require immediate treatment.

While you can go to the ER for extreme dental pain, we recommend getting an emergency exam with a dentist instead. We have the training and experience necessary to provide you with treatment. Along with helping resolve the pain, our treatments also consider your long-term oral health.

What to Expect During an Emergency Exam

There are a few different things we’re trying to achieve during an emergency exam. We want to:

  • Determine the source of the issue
  • Provide relief from the pain you’re experiencing.
  • Ensure your long-term oral health is preserved.

What this looks like will vary depending on the injury in question.

For instance, if you have a chipped tooth, we will likely try to either reattach it, fill it, or put a crown on it. To take another example, if you’re experiencing facial swelling, we’ll have to find the source of the infection before providing treatment.
