You care for your teeth according to the latest dental standards. You brush your teeth, you floss them, and maybe, you always use a water flosser. Unfortunately, the unexpected can still occur. If you experience injury to your mouth and teeth, you are encouraged to seek the dental services of an Emergency Dentist Jacksonville.
Here are three services a emergency dentist provides.
Chipped or Missing Teeth
It could happen at the worst moment. For example, you could be out having a meal with friends or family and you take a bite of a scrumptious dessert or steak that proves to be tougher than your teeth. An emergency dentist can fix a chipped tooth as well as a missing tooth. Whether it occurs at 10 in the morning or 10 at night, emergency dental professionals are available for the unexpected. Unlike regular dentists, they leave appointment slots open so those with urgent needs can be seen in a timely manner.
Even when you care for your teeth as recommended by the dental guidelines, severe pain can still occur, unexpectedly. It could be due to an infection that has been building up or your teeth succumbing to a cavity that had been forming underneath the surface. An emergency dentist will first help relieve you of your pain. Then, he will examine the area and determine the cause. Steps will then be taken to alleviate and prevent future pain.
Someone who has been in a car accident could experience injury to their teeth, mouth or jaw. In these situations, emergency dentists are prepared to examine the injury and conduct surgery, as necessary. Athletes are also susceptible to injuries to the mouth.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, the Emergency Dentist Jacksonville staff at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry is available.
