Most dental treatments aren’t emergencies and can be scheduled and treated in a planned manner. However, there are times when problems like abscessed teeth, tooth decay, chipped/broken teeth or swollen gums can cause extreme discomfort and unbearable pain. In such situations, you need the services of an emergency dentist in Anchorage to assess and treat the problem.
We at Ersland Family Dental recognize that a dental emergency can be very uncomfortable and that it can disrupt your day. It’s why we provide prompt dental emergency services.
Know When You Need Emergency Dental Services
We’ve seen that patients are sometimes unsure about whether their dental problem can be considered an emergency or not. If you aren’t sure, simply call us and our staff will ask you a few questions in order to determine whether your condition needs immediate treatment. They will then schedule an appointment as required. The situations that can be considered dental emergencies include:
- Facial swelling caused by swollen/inflamed gums
- Numbness in the jaw area
- Pain in the teeth, gums, jaw or any other area of the mouth
- Abscessed teeth
- Infected gums
- Lost crowns
- Broken dentures
- Loose fillings
It isn’t uncommon for people to defer visiting the dental office until their pain is truly unbearable. But our dentist in Anchorage feels that you shouldn’t have to suffer through this kind of pain. It’s why we are here to help when your dental problem becomes too painful or difficult to bear. In fact, even in the absence of pain, not addressing these problems on time can slowly result in poor oral health, which in turn can lead to serious health issues.
