Discover the Care You Need for Your Emergency
With dental emergencies, our office is set up by first having the patient come in. We don’t refuse any patient. We want all our patients to be able to come in, whether it’s at the end of the day, whether it’s early in the morning, close to the weekend. With dental emergencies, we want to be able to get that patient out of pain, whether it be we prescribe them medication, antibiotics, pain medication, do same-day treatment.
The thing with dental emergencies is it can very real affect the patients at work, their ability to focus. They’re in so much pain, they’re going to lose time from work. What we do is we try to get them in and give them some form to alleviate that pain, that emergency that they need to be treated for. With these limited cases that come in, limited treatment with emergencies, I’m able to perform same-day treatment, get them out of that pain.
Maybe this is even more than just prescribing them something, maybe actually doing work that day. That’s things that I’m able to do in the past, and I continue to do that just because I know the way society is. Time is very important. Patients don’t have time to take off from work. So by coming in, getting that emergency fixed for them to treating that tooth, whether it be extracting, root canal, crown, things like this, we’re able to get them out of that pain and treat that emergency and not keep them at the office coming back for multiple visits, which would affect their ability to go to work.
