Get peace of mind with 24/7 dental emergency services in the Troy area
According to the Centers for Disease Control, disorders of the tooth and jaw were among the most common reasons for hospital emergency room visits in the United States, and the number of visits for dental conditions grew faster between 2006 and 2011 than the reported number of visits for allergic reactions, asthma, open wounds, and fractures.
When you have a dental emergency, who better to get you out of pain than the dentist you are already know and trust, John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC?
While accidents can occur on and off the court or rink, many of the most common dental emergencies reported by the American Academy of Family Physicians can be avoided by establishing a relationship with your Troy area dental provider.
These most-common conditions include:
- Inflammation of the inside of the tooth (or pulp)
- A bacterial infection (or abscess)
- Impacted wisdom teeth
Pain when drinking or eating hot or cold foods and beverages can be a red flag for pulpal inflammation, while abscesses and impacted wisdom teeth are often accompanied by facial swelling. Thanks to regular checkups and professional cleanings, John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC can treat any problems early. The intense pain and complications that land people in the hospital due to these conditions are avoided.
Even many common dental problems caused by accidents can be prevented. While tooth fractures may be caused by habits such as teeth grinding and clenching, you can also break your tooth when playing sports. To address both potential causes of tooth breakage, John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC may create a dental guard customized to fit your mouth.
Depending on your area of concern, a night guard may be fitted to protect your teeth from grinding and clenching (a condition known as bruxism). A mouth guard can also be designed precisely and comfortably to protect your teeth from injury during sports. Call (248) 243-6044 day or night, and follow the prompts related to dental emergency help. The Troy area office is always open for emergencies to get you or a family member out of pain quickly with the best treatment possible.
