Whether a tooth is cracked, loosened, or knocked out, the first 30 minutes after an injury occurs can be crucial to preserving the aesthetics and health of your smile.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
One local Minneapolis Dentist is taking a stand against the high prices and inconvenience of emergency dental procedures. Whether a tooth is cracked, loosened, or knocked out, the first 30 minutes after an injury occurs can be crucial to preserving the aesthetics and health of your smile.
"One in four people in the U.S. will have an oral injury in their lifetime. Many of these dental emergencies could be avoided by taking precautions such as wearing a mouth guard during sports and recreation or by staying away from hard foods like candy that can crack teeth," says Scott Shamblott, DDS. "Accidents do happen, however, and it is important to know what actions to take immediately."
In the event of a dental emergency, contacting your dentist or a local emergency dentist is critical. The dentist will be able to give you advice over the phone, and, if applicable, schedule an emergency appointment. During an emergency appointment, the dentist will be able to advise you on the next steps required for repairing your damage. If required, they will also be able to take X-rays to gain a complete understanding of the damage.
"Dental emergencies are physically and emotionally painful," says Shamblott. "It is bad enough that you might have to alter your eating habits and routine until the issue is resolved; you shouldn’t have to pay extra for the required preliminary dental work. That is why we provide free emergency dental consultations, exams and X-rays. We want to fix your problem, but we also want to make sure it’s done properly."
Handling everything from chipped, fractured, and lost teeth to broken denture plates, Scott Shamblott has worked with countless patients to repair their dental injuries and restore their smiles. If you or someone you know has a dental emergency, be sure to contact a dental specialist quickly to help increase the chances of saving a tooth.
