Emergency Dentist

Dental emergencies like severe toothaches, bleeding gums, or even a cracked or broken tooth are quite common among people of all ages. An emergency dentist is well-trained to handle such situations and treat patients as quickly as possible. At Robert Baker Dentistry in Mesa, AZ, we understand your concerns and will respond to your call immediately. 

What Is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any serious dental condition that requires immediate treatment to save the patient’s teeth and gums. If you have a dental emergency, call our office at (480) 461-9944 to schedule an appointment. 

Severe Toothache

Toothaches can be caused by various factors like cavities and trauma to the teeth. 

However, it is important that you address them immediately to prevent further complications and limit the pain. A sudden toothache indicates an infection that has to be treated as soon as possible. 

Broken Tooth

A broken tooth is an emergency situation that requires immediate treatment to arrest the bleeding. The patient should not delay getting dental help as it could lead to severe complications. 

Abscessed Tooth

Abscessed teeth are triggered by cavities or infections that have gone untreated for some time. An abscess causes severe pain and also affects the surrounding tissues and gums. 

Sudden Jaw Pain

Pain or discomfort in the jaw can be caused by different factors like dental conditions, infections, TMJ disorders, arthritis, or muscle spasms. It is important to seek immediate medical attention as it could lead to serious complications like fever, headaches, and nausea if not treated on time. 

Chipped or Broken Restorations

If you have fillings or crowns on your teeth, they could break if you hit your mouth against or bite into something hard. In such cases, you should not try to repair them yourself and visit the dentist as soon as possible. 

Abrasion or Discharge of Tissue

If you experience any kind of discharge from your gums or a hole in your mouth, it could be an indication of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can cause you to lose bone support around your tooth root and make your teeth vulnerable to infections and diseases. An emergency dentist can treat such problems by performing root canal therapy or other procedures on time. 

Severe Trauma or Injury

Trauma can damage your teeth so much that they lose their function entirely. If this happens, you will have to get them restored through dental implants or dentures. In case of injury caused by a fall or blow to your mouth, it is best to consult our dentist immediately for treatment.
