Dental professionals provide a multitude of dental procedures and treatments for dental emergencies. The patients will contact the dentists through an after-hours number if the dental office is closed for the day. If the dental office is open, the dentist can work the patients into their existing schedule.
Dental emergencies address pain and discomfort initially, but some patients may have underlying reasons for their discomfort. The dentist will perform an examination to determine what caused the problem and explain what treatment is necessary. Some emergencies may require surgery, and the dental professional can complete surgeries on an emergency basis.
