What is emergency dental care?
Injuries and other emergency situations that require immediate attention sometimes occur unexpectedly. Such emergencies are taken into consideration and prioritized when appointments are scheduled.
When it comes to your teeth, problems don’t always arise at convenient times. Our primary goal is to relieve your pain, so whether you are involved in a hockey or auto accident or you simply break a tooth, we will work to accommodate you. If you need emergency assistance and cannot immediately reach us, head to the local hospital for care. They can get the problem under control and then you can still come to us for treatment.
The importance of emergency dental care
No matter what kind of dental emergency you have, you need to see a dentist as soon as you can. This could be a dental emergency like a painful tooth, a pulled-out piece of dental work, or an accident that results in dental trauma, like a cracked tooth.
Regardless of the issue, getting immediate dental care from a Winnipeg emergency dentist is the first thing you should do. Emergency dental care lets you get relief from your pain and discomfort and minimizes your risk of complications related to your oral health issue.
This can save you quite a bit of time and money. The worse your issue gets, the more complex and expensive the appropriate dental treatments can be. By getting help right away, you can get back to your day-to-day life, restore your smile and your bite, and keep your mouth healthy and free of serious complications.
