With help from our team at Northwest Dental Group in Rochester, MN, you won’t have to worry about where to find advanced, comfortable treatment when you need it!

3 Reasons To Plan Ahead For Dental Emergencies

Here are three reasons you’ll want to plan ahead for dental emergencies that will save time, hassle, and possibly, your smile!

*Not Every Dentist Treats Emergencies*

The unique challenge of dental emergencies is that not every dentist treats them. Oral injuries and infections aren’t the sort of thing that can be treated at a standard emergency room, so finding a practice that can help you, especially outside of normal office hours, is not easy.

That’s why you need a dentist who can help you when you need it most. As we all know, emergencies don’t care what time of day or what day of the week it is, right?

Northwest Dental Group is a place you can turn to for help with your dental emergencies. When you know you can count on us to treat your dental problem, you won’t have to waste time searching the phonebook or internet for emergency care.

*The Risk For Oral Infection Is Always There*

It doesn’t matter if you have a healthy tooth that’s suddenly sensitive or aching, or whether you’ve just experienced a dental injury that broke or cracked a tooth.

Either way, the risk for oral infection is always there.

That’s a risk you shouldn’t take, which is why you need immediate dental treatment to get to the source of the problem, alleviate or prevent pain, and protect your oral and overall health from the spread of infection.

*You Don’t Want To Be Stuck With Tooth Pain*

Dental pain, especially if it’s coming from an infection deep inside the tooth, can get pretty intense. Some patients describe it as a deep, pulsating kind of pain that can be felt throughout the jaw. Throbbing, resistant to OTC pain relievers, and unbearable.

But that’s at its worst. Still, even a slight toothache is painful.

If you didn’t know where to find help outside of normal business hours, or if your usual dentist office doesn’t treat emergencies, you’d have to spend an evening or entire weekend feeling miserable.

Knowing ahead of time exactly where to go means you don’t have to be stuck with tooth pain! When you make Northwest Dental Group your new dentist office, a painful dental emergency can be taken care of with swift action thanks to our on-call response system!
