Let’s face it, nobody enjoys going to the dentist and often we put it off more than we should. In fact, it’s usually not until we’re left with no choice that we finally bring ourselves and our medical problem to Curtis Family Dental, when the issue has already been allowed to go on for too long. When a dental medical emergency occurs, it can leave the person in pain for extended periods of time, with no relief from the pain and being stuck for hours in the emergency room only to be no closer to a solution. Therefore, more places need twenty-four-hour emergency care from dentists.
The importance of having twenty-four-hour dental emergency care
We can assume that life is full of the unexpected and that goes for medical dental emergencies. Maybe you’re sitting there and eating something and your tooth suddenly breaks, maybe you’ve developed a toothache, what now? In most of these scenario’s you’re stuck in pain until a dental office could squeeze you in between appointments and that’s assuming you’re already an established client.
With 24-hour emergency, dental care people aren’t stuck left in pain. Clinics would be able to operate outside of normal work hours helping those that are truly in need. This would be especially great for areas that tend to do a lot of work with patients who are seen often in the office for more severe cases of certain issues. The other plus side behind having a 24-hour emergency dental care is the possibility of doctors being able to visit patients in their homes.
While some dental emergencies can only be handled in office, it’s not always easy knowing what to do when it happens. For this reason, a dentist would be able to come out at any time, assess the situation and take appropriate action. This could include distribution of medication or antibiotics for something that could be treated on a smaller scale or book an appointment after an evaluation of the patient in home too. These same services could even be taken a step further by having in home evaluations.
These types of services are great for those with mobility issues, parents with busy schedules and children and more. The flexibility to have a dentist come to you can be a great thing and alleviate some of the patient flow that clogs doctor’s and dentist offices. Imagine instead of having to book an appointment in office around others, a dentist came out and looked at someone and could help them from there. This would eliminate issues with appointments, travel and much more.
