Where to go for emergency dental care in the Lake Orion area
Emergencies happen. They are often unexpected and occur without warning. Patients in and around the Lake Orion area who experience emergency dental problems may be wondering who to turn to for proper care and attention. Dr. John L. Aurelia is a quality dentist that provides not only preventive, general, and cosmetic dentistry at his practice, but emergency dentistry services as well. He welcomes new patients to his practice and can help with most any dental concern that arises. In most cases, he can see patients during the same day when time allows, or provide them with a way to get comfortable until they can be seen.
Emergency dental care is necessary when patients are in extreme pain or at risk for developing further problems if the issue at hand is not taken care of immediately. Common dental emergencies include:
- A knocked out tooth
- Severe bleeding long after oral surgery has been completed
- Extreme pain and discomfort (toothache)
- The loss of a restoration such as a veneer, crown, filling, or bridge
- Trauma to the mouth
The situation will depend on the treatment given. In some cases, patients may need immediate root canals to address infected dental pulp. Fillings may be necessary to keep temperature sensitivity from occurring and relieve pain and discomfort. Patients who have had lost restorations may need to have them rebonded to continue to protect the natural tooth underneath. In some cases, patients may also receive antibiotics or pain medication prescriptions to help with the concern. Dr. John L. Aurelia can see patients on a same day basis in many situations and provide a thorough examination and diagnosis to determine the problem and speak with patients about the most desirable method of treatment.
