If you take good care of your teeth, you will find that your time at the dentist is a fairly “pleasant” experience. While you may never love the idea of having to go to the dentist, when you have been brushing your teeth twice and day while flossing regularly, you’ll find that your dentist will spend less time scraping, and not have to call you back to have cavities treated. The thing is, just because you take good care of your teeth does not mean that you aren’t going to find yourself with a dental emergency here and there. All it takes is for you to bite down wrong on a hard piece of food, or to have an errant piece of bone in some bar-b-que to crack or break a tooth. While you may be “lucky” enough to have this type of situation occur within the normal business hours of your Dentist in Island Heights, if it is at night or on the weekends you may need to see an Emergency Dentist to get the area properly treated.
When you break or severely chip a tooth, you run the risk of infection if the area is not properly treated. Because “general” dentists tend to have limited hours (three to four days a week with scant night or weekend hours), you may not be able to go in and see your regular dentist until it is too late. With all of this in mind, you need to have an emergency dentist picked out and ready to go on the chance that you are going to need them. You never know what life will bring; it is always better being safe rather than sorry.
It’s not so much that you want one single emergency dentist that you can turn to when you need help, but a team of dentists. Having multiple emergency dentists in one location means that you will not have to wait around for one dentist to get through an entire waiting room before they can see you. With this in mind, one option you are going to want to consider is going to be the Shore Family Dental Association, which you can find more info on at shorefamilydental.com.
