Emergency

Dentistry

Dental issues require prompt attention. Immediately you sense that something feels wrong with your teeth, you should quickly book an appointment with your dentist. Check-ups are also essential if you want to protect your oral health. It would be best if you did not wait for an issue to develop before going to the clinic. Dental check-up, at least twice a year is necessary to maintain optimum oral health.

However, there are situations that check-ups can’t prevent, and where booking an appointment is impossible due to the urgency. Perhaps it’s not even a workday, or it is past closing hours, and you require serious dental attention. Westmore provides emergency dental services that will help you alleviate the pain and improve the condition as soon as possible.

What qualifies as an emergency in dental care?

Identifying what qualifies as an emergency is not hard. You only have to check if you’re experiencing any of these:

  • Bleeding
  • Severe pain

 

  • On the verge of losing a tooth that can be saved if there’s medical attention

If you answer yes to any of the conditions, then finding emergency dentistry is crucial. As our client, you don’t need to look for one, just come down to Westmore for emergency dental care.

Instances of such emergencies include knocked out tooth, a loose tooth, loose crown, fractured or cracked tooth, chipped tooth, gum injury or swellings, tissue injury, etc.

The Importance of Emergency Dentistry

In most cases, permanent damage to the teeth can be prevented if the problem was identified on time. In emergency cases, the problem is glaring, which means taking steps to avoid permanent damage is even more necessary. Prompt treatment preserves the tooth and maintains its functions. Most dental emergencies also come with unbearable pain which needs to be reduced on time, without emergency care, the pain will persist, rendering the patient incapable.

 

Emergency Dental care can also save the clients’ money and the time that will be spent doing corrective procedures for something that could have been avoided. The dental emergency is like the traditional emergency rooms but in a more specialised manner. So we can provide better care for your dental issues than traditional emergency rooms.

How we deal with emergency dental issues

At Westmore Dentistry, we respond to emergency issues in a prompt and timely fashion. All bureaucratic processes that usually delay care are abandoned until the pain is alleviated and we are certain that there would be no permanent damage.

Also, our clients can decide to use on-the-phone emergency service where our dentists guide them on what to do during the emergency through a phone call. This can be useful in situations where the emergency is not so serious that they have to come to the clinic, or where for some other reasons, they can’t come. All they have to do is place a call to us. We will guide them through procedures to ensure temporary succour until they can come physically for treatment.
