About Emergency Dental Exams

Accidents do happen, and sometimes they can result in you needing urgent dental care. Your mouth is sensitive, and any chipped tooth, fractured, or lost filling can cause a lot of pain and discomfort, leading to sleepless nights and not eating correctly. In such a case, you can always rely on our dentists, as we promise to get you in as quickly as possible and have your dental health restored as soon as your condition allows. Our emergency dental exams could make the difference between saving your original tooth and not. In Salt Lake City, Utah, see 3rd South Dental today! 

What Can Be Done?

3rd South Dental conducts emergency dental exams on patients that find themselves in an urgent situation. These exams consist of digital x-rays of the specific section of the mouth causing the issue, which we use to diagnose the problem and recommend a suitable treatment correctly. We use the most advanced technology to get the most precise and direct diagnosis. We want to help take care of your dental emergency right away. 

Depending on the issue, your dentist may not administer the complete treatment on the day. The patient may have to be sent home with medication to reduce the swelling, irritation, or clear up the infection before the rest of the treatment, such as a root canal or deep cleaning, can occur. The medication will also aim to relieve a patient’s discomfort to continue with daily life as unhindered as possible.

If possible, we will get you started on a treatment right away. We will discuss all of your therapeutic options, the treatments, the recovery time, and even the financial options. We want you to have complete transparency going into an emergency treatment. We will do everything that we can to help you feel comfortable. Our number one goal is to help restore your smile to full functionality. If you are nervous about the resolution for the dental emergency, there is no need to be! We have plenty of different sedatives, and we will work with you to make sure you are comfortable, and everything goes smoothly. 

These exams are different from a comprehensive oral exam or a routine check-up and should only be used or asked for in an emergency.

Common Dental Emergencies

The most common emergencies are:

  • Broken teeth.
  • Persistent swelling or bleeding.
  • Abscessed teeth.
  • Pain when biting.
  • Inflammation around the wisdom teeth.
  • Trauma to the teeth from an accident.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or conditions, do not hesitate to contact 3rd South Dental for expert treatment. Emergency dental concerns should not be left unaided as they will only result in more extensive damage to your dental health. 

Dental emergencies can happen at any time, which is why we want you to know what to do when one occurs. If you are prepared, it is more likely that we can save your original tooth. If you have any questions or concerns about dental emergencies, exams, or treatments, please let us know! We want to reassure any fears that you may have.

We look forward to working with you!
