Emergency Dental Care
A dental emergency strikes suddenly and leaves you in urgent need of help. BayView Dental Arts provides emergency service when you need medical help right away, or are in extreme pain, or even find yourself at risk of losing a tooth.
In addition to usual appointments, procedures or cosmetic treatments, if you need help right away because of an unexpected emergency, a cracked tooth, severe infection, serious pain, a missing filling or other sudden concerns, we are here for you.
Why is a chipped or cracked tooth a dental emergency?
Even if your chipped or cracked tooth isn’t causing you pain, it’s important to consider it a dental emergency and have it repaired right away. Inside the tooth, the internal, delicate areas are now potentially exposed to the wide array of bacteria in the mouth. This can quickly result in decay, and even cause you to lose the tooth or require root canal therapy. So don’t wait if you crack or break a tooth or notice it’s chipped.
This also goes for a tooth that’s been knocked out. A tooth can be saved by being implanted soon enough after it has been knocked out. But time is critical. The ideal window for implantation and successfully saving the tooth is within 30 minutes of the tooth being knocked out.
