What Does Your Dentist Do During Emergency Dental Work?

You can have several understandable concerns after you experience a dental emergency. You can be concerned with discomfort, and with the condition of a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or even lost. With that said, you may be unclear on what your dentist can do for you to address these problems, or whether you have access to urgent care at all. Your Prairie Village, KS dentist is ready to help you if you experience a dental problem that demands urgent attention. During your visit, your physical trauma can be carefully addressed. In addition to treating the problem, the right restoration can actually make improvements on your smile, so you will not have to worry about the cosmetic effects of an injury.

Assessing The Damage To Your Tooth

The level of damage you experience can impact the care your dentist needs to provide you. If the damage to a tooth is only superficial, cosmetic dental work may be the only treatment you need. If the tooth’s injury interferes with your ability to bite and chew, or if you are experiencing internal tooth problems, more involved restorative dental care can be needed. Your dentist will take care to only provide the most conservative care needed. In other words, the goal will be to save the tooth, and to preserve as much of your tooth structure as possible. If your damage is severe enough to call for a replacement, modern prosthetic dental work can offer functional and cosmetic benefits.

Offering Smile-Friendly Restorative Care

The goal during emergency dental work is to restore your smile, and your oral health. Your dentist relies on materials that make lifelike restorations possible. This means that even after a tooth is badly chipped or cracked, your restoration can make your smile appear the way it did before your emergency.
