Accidents Happen!

Even the most prepared of us have to deal with unpleasant surprises from time to time.

 

Emergency dental services are sought by people who have experienced accidents and injuries, as well as people afflicted by dislodged fillings, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth, severe toothache, or cuts, tears, and abscesses in the mouth.

 

Mayo Clinic suggests that oral abscesses require urgent care to avoid complications such as infection or even sepsis, a life-threatening condition. Accidents and injuries account for a large portion of dental emergencies as well. According to the American Association of Endodontists, specialists in saving teeth, more than five million teeth are knocked out each year due to an injury or accident.

 

Luckily, emergency dentistry can help restore your smile and save you a headache.

 

Dr. Kiai and his team at Westwood Dental Esthetics specialize in emergency dental care and are trained in responding efficiently and effectively to these often high-stress situations. Emergencies are not fun, but the team at Westwood Dental Esthetics prioritizes your health and wellbeing and will work to accommodate same-day services for urgent cases.

 

Many dental conditions, especially broken or knocked-out teeth, are time-sensitive. The team is well-versed in these types of crises and can help tailor a specific treatment plan to your particular needs.

 

While accidents do happen, some oral emergencies, such as infection or abscesses, can be prevented by practicing regular oral hygiene and receiving consistent cleanings and dental exams.
