emergency dentistThey say that death and taxes are the only things that are guaranteed in life, but most oral health professionals would argue that emergency dental issues should probably be in that category as well. Your teeth and gums are extremely unpredictable, and there are a number of things that can go wrong inside your mouth at any moment.

Because of how random these dental emergencies are, you need to find a dental office that has emergency dentists on call to provide treatment whenever you need it. A dental emergency is usually much more than a fleeting pain, often indicating serious and complex issues within your gums that need to be addressed as soon as possible.


About half of adults say they visit the dentist every six months, but this number doesn't account for dental emergencies that thousands of people deal with on a daily basis. From lost/cracked fillings to chipped teeth and broken crowns, there's no shortage of ways for things to go awry inside your mouth at a moment's notice. More than 15 million people in the U.S. currently have crown and bridge replacements for missing teeth, making the odds of a dental emergency happening at any given moment extremely high.

While all dental emergencies cannot be treated immediately, finding a great emergency dentist should go hand-in-hand with one-visit treatment options. For example, sudden and excruciating tooth pain is often a sign that you'll need a root canal as soon as possible, and the best dental offices will offer one-day endodontics to perform your root canal in a single visit. More than 15 million root canals are performed every year, and technology has advanced to the point where this procedure isn't nearly as painful as it once was. One-day dental implants are also something you should be looking for in a dental office. Nobody wants to take multiple days off from work just to deal with their dental problems, and the best dentists can get you in and out with a new beautiful smile in just one visit.

Finding a dental office that can offer emergency dentists, experienced periodontists, and one-day procedures is like hitting the jackpot when it comes to protecting your teeth and gums. Your on call dentist should be available all year long, responding in mere minutes to provide advice, support, or emergency procedures when needed. It's an important step in protecting you and your family from the unpredictable, and you'll be happy you found the right emergency dentist when something does pop up out of the blue.
