Need an Emergency Dentist? These Tips Can Help You Choose the Right One

Blog • 13th Sep, 18 • 0 Comments

Impacted wisdom teeth are third molars at the back of the mouth that don't have enough room to emerge or develop normally. They often result in pain and a trip to an emergency dentist to make a treatment plan and remove the impacted teeth. But don't be mistaken -- impacted wisdom teeth are far from the only reason you may need to see an emergency dentist, and unlike a typical cosmetic dentistry issue, it's always best to be prepared for the worst. With that in mind, here are just a few important tips to help you choose the right emergency dental care professional.

Consider availability.


You can't plan when an emergency dental situation will arise, which is why it's imperative that the emergency dental professional you choose is readily available. This means nights, weekends, and holidays. If you can't actually get a hold of your emergency dentist when you need them most, then what are they even there for? Give yourself peace of mind by making sure your emergency dentist has wide availability.

Don't neglect experience.

Of course, you wouldn't choose a dentist that's inexperienced. But it's the type of experience that matters. As their name implies, your emergency dentist should have sufficient experience dealing with just those -- emergencies. Whether you are dealing with impacted wisdom teeth pain, a lost filling, or any other dental emergency, your dentist should be able to stay calm, cool, and collected while resolving your issue as efficiently as possible. 

Try to find reviews.

If you're in an extremely time sensitive situation, you may not have the time to consider reviews from other patients. But if you have just a few minutes to spare, take to the Internet and see what other patients are saying about the emergency dentist you're considering. Even a few reviews can provide the insight you need to make the best decision.

According to an AACD survey, virtually all adults (99.7%) surveyed believe a healthy smile is socially important. Ultimately, it's up to you to choose the dental professional who will truly go the extra mile for you in the event of any dental emergency.

Patient Success Stories

  • This practice and all who work there used skill and caring to support my need when I broke part of a tooth out of town and needed to get in fast when I got back. I felt like they were there for me in every way. I have been a patient there for a few years now and have always been well cared for.

  • >My visit was very convenient since it was on a Sunday. The staff is professional, courteous and very efficient. Dr. Tepedino has the manners of a saint. His level of skill for my treatment allowed quick healing and hardly any pain. The service fee was fair. I have referred Dental Arts of Florida to all of my colleagues.
