Get immediate relief, rescue your natural tooth with emergency dentistry in Chandler, AZ
You can avoid many dental emergencies if you keep regular visits to our office for professional cleanings and exams. We detect problems early before they cause toothaches and other symptoms that lead to an after-hours call and the need for emergency dentistry. While many of the sources of pain can be managed, at Aquila Dental in Chandler, AZ, we offer prompt emergency care knowing that accidents happen.
Also, even with diligent care, changes to your overall health status can arise that may cause problems to escalate quickly. It is also human nature to put off some conditions; for instance, that chipped or broken dental crown may be on your “to-do” list if it does not interfere with eating comfortably or doesn’t produce pain. It is only when that fracture or other chronic problem begins to interfere with our day-to-day lives, sleep, and ability to function at work or school that it becomes an urgent situation and can no longer wait.
Care for gum disease and tooth decay
Both conditions are the leading causes of tooth loss, and they are generally progressive. We work with our patients to identify and manage risk factors. It is essential to get into a healthy home care routine and visit our office for cleanings. Our hygienists remove stubborn tartar that doesn’t budge with toothbrushes or floss.
Even badly diseased or decayed teeth can be “saved” with root canal therapy or other endodontic procedures. The sooner you contact us to get treatment, the greater the odds that we will preserve your natural tooth and avoid the need for extraction. Impacted wisdom teeth should be extracted. We can help you avoid this complication by monitoring how these third molars are developing in your mouth well before they produce pain and damage surrounding teeth.
Calling us without delay at (480) 812-2800 allows us to immediately resolve pain and begin the process of either removing the tooth or restoring it to health and function. Prompt care helps to prevent a potential medical emergency: a systemic infection. Dental infections or abscesses do not stay put, and they do not simply go away without treatment. Untreated, oral infections can spread to other parts of the face and body. If you are experiencing a high fever or difficulty swallowing or breathing, seek medical treatment immediately.
For many dental conditions that may require emergency dentistry, including broken teeth and damaged dental restorations, you may manage associated pain or swelling by applying a cold compress or ice pack. Over-the-counter pain medications can ease discomfort until you can see us; refrain from using aspirin (it can interfere with blood clotting). Call us right away should you notice changes, such as sudden sensitivity.
