What To Expect During Your Visit
Treatments for addressing urgent dental problems are different for every case. At your visit, one of our emergency dentists will fully assess your particular issue before making a diagnosis. Digital dental imaging may be needed to examine the teeth for internal trauma that may be impacting the tooth roots or jawbone tissue. After we have determined the severity of your dental problem, we can review your options for treatment. At ACE Dental of New Braunfels, the primary goal of an emergency visit is to lessen tooth discomfort and resolve trauma. We will do everything we can to bring back the use, aesthetics, and total health of your smile as promptly as possible. In some instances, however, it may take more than one visit to fully complete your care.
Recovery Following Urgent Dental Care
During your visit at ACE Dental of New Braunfels, our staff will explain optimal methods to care for your mouth regarding your specific dental emergency. Our dentists may recommend a prescription pain reliever to ease discomfort or antibiotics to combat inflammation. Once your dental emergency is resolved, we can provide suggestions on how to minimize the risk of future trauma, which could include wearing a custom athletic mouth guard or night guard for bruxism (teeth grinding). Keeping up with good oral hygiene habits is very important while you heal. We will monitor your progress and overall oral health when you come in for regular dental checkups.
Insurance Coverage for Emergencies
When you have a dental emergency, the last thing you likely want to worry about is finances. If you carry dental insurance, a portion of your visit may be covered by your plan. Our business team can review your benefits and help maximize your coverage, and let you know of any possible out-of-pocket costs. To help make emergency dental treatment more accessible, ACE Dental of New Braunfels accepts several flexible financial options.
