With proper preventive dental care like daily brushing and flossing and routine dental exams and cleanings, we can lower your risks for future dental emergencies. However, most Americans will experience one dental emergency in their life. If this happens to you, our Springfield emergency dentist, Dr. Shane Ruggless, DMD and his dental team are here for you.
Emergency Dental Care to Relieve Bad Tooth Pain
Dental emergencies can be stressful and painful; we want our Springfield patients to know they have a team they can trust that will turn the situation around.
It doesn’t matter if you are brand new to us or are an existing patient; a dental emergency needs immediate treatment. Infections, abscesses, broken or knocked-out teeth all need to be treated promptly, so we have the best chance of saving your tooth.
If you are undergoing tooth pain, don’t ignore it or treat it as an annoyance. Dental pain is almost always a red flag that your body is waving to let you know that a deep-seated problem is underway, and it will get worse over time.
The longer an oral health problem is left on its own, the more costly and complicated the treatment plan will be. So it’s better to nip it in the bud before things become urgent.
