Emergency Walk-In

When Do I Need An Emergency Walk-In?

When faced with a medical emergency, most people know exactly what to do - call their regular doctor if they have one, or go to the emergency room for treatment, depending

on the severity of the problem. And while many people have a dentist they trust and have visited for years, the nature of dental work makes it so that appointments are typically planned, sometimes weeks or even months in advance.

However when faced with a dental emergency, many people find themselves at a loss of where to go and what to do. Just like a medical emergency, it is important to treat dental trauma and other problems in a timely manner in order to avoid complications and risk permanent damage.

Emergency walk-in Dental in Bangor, ME

One of the most common dental problems to require an emergency walk-in, is sudden tooth loss or breaks, usually caused by trauma or a fall. Although dental accidents are not generally life threatening, getting immediate care from a dentist is necessary in order to help preserve the tooth and the smile's overall appearance. Even small breaks can cause nerve injuries through bacteria build up in the soft pulp inside the tooth, potentially resulting in permanent damage if left untreated. A tooth fracture that might seem to be little more than a cosmetic problem can sometimes actually need a root canal to prevent infection and nerve damage.

Other types of conditions that may need an emergency walk-in include:

  • Inflammation
  • Bacterial infection
  • Abscess
  • Loose tooth
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Cuts and lacerations to the gums, tongue, lips, and cheeks
