There are many reasons that patients need an emergency dentist. We find that a dental emergency can strike at any time. Dr. Loveland and our staff at Desert Mountain Dental will try to accommodate any last-minute appointment requests so that the patient does not have to continue struggling with oral pain. If you have a toothache or a major dental emergency, call (520) 324-0100 right away.
Reasons for Needing an Emergency Dental Visit
The American Dental Association reported that the number one cause of adult tooth damage every year is playing sports. This spans all types of athletics and creates the need for emergency appointments throughout Tucson AZ. Even a backyard game of basketball can lead to someone damaging a tooth or someone knocking a player’s tooth out. The same holds true for kids playing sports as well. While there are ways to protect yourself like wearing a mouth guard, a dental emergency is still possible. When an emergency strikes call (520) 324-0100.
Car accidents are another leading cause of tooth injury. While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it may not be strong enough to prevent your tooth from breaking when colliding with the steering wheel. With millions of accidents a year, teeth are a common victim. We recommend that patients of Desert Mountain Dental get examined at a local emergency room after being in a car accident; just to make sure that they have not sustained any physical injuries. Afterward, call us for a dentist's appointment. The emergency room does not treat tooth damage, so you will need to see both types of medical providers.
