Prioritizing Treatment For Dental Damage

After you injure a tooth, it can be hard to concentrate on anything beyond scheduling the appropriate restorative services. Our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office is aware that issues with dental damage or pain can disrupt your life and demand prompt care. While we take care to serve our clients with scheduled appointments, we can take care to see you on short notice when it is necessary. At your appointment, we will evaluate you to determine if you would benefit more from a restorative or cosmetic procedure. Determining the right approach is important, as it ensures that we provide the right degree of protection while still providing the most conservative treatment possible.

What Can I Do If I Suffer A Dental Injury?

If you experience a dental injury, you should respond swiftly by seeking care and keeping your tooth as safe as possible. Aspirin and a gently applied ice pack or compress to the site of the injury can help with pain. Be careful about handling a broken portion of your tooth or one that is dislodged, and be as careful as you can not to agitate one that is damaged or loose. When you arrive, we can provide the necessary review to see what kind of care you require.

We Can Work With You To Provide Care On Short Notice

Our practice provides regular support to patients with scheduled appointments. Keeping up with these visits and maintaining a safe and properly managed environment is particularly important as we continue to minimize risks from coronavirus. With that said, we know that some problems simply should not wait. If you are in a position where you require treatment as soon as possible, we can work with you to see you and provide that support. Depending on the state of your tooth, we can proceed with either cosmetic or restorative dental work.

Can I Qualify For Cosmetic Work, Or Will I Need Restorative Treatment?

Depending on the condition of your tooth, we can offer either a restorative procedure or cosmetic dental work. A cosmetic procedure can hide chips or cracks that hurt your smile with conservative work. Through tooth bonding treatment, we can restore your smile in as little as one visit. When necessary, we will proceed with restorative dental work, which can resolve trouble with your health as well as your appearance.
