See Your Dentist and Skip the Emergency Room Wait

Recent statistics paint a troubling picture of America’s dental health. Throughout the country, people are procrastinating about getting dental care to the point of extreme pain or other serious symptoms. The behavior has led to an increase in the number of hospital emergency room visits for treatment of dental pain. Widespread dental neglect may be fueled by the fact that one-third of all Americans do not have any form of dental insurance. The trend places more strain on an already overwhelmed medical system, and because emergency rooms do not provide true dental care, patients are not getting the emergency dental treatment that could save their teeth.

Emergency Dental Care at the ER



The increase in hospital visits for emergency dental pain is primarily associated with people between the ages of 20 and 39. Hospitals inundated with dental patients often treat them with antibiotics and pain medications, but do not provide emergency dental care that could save an affected tooth. Emergency rooms are designed to save lives, not teeth. Although patients are opting out of dental care to save money, emergency room treatment for an abscess can cost thousands of dollars, and the underlying cause of the condition is never addressed. In contrast, an emergency dentist could treat both the immediate symptoms and the underlying dental condition.

Dental Emergency Prevention



Over time, neglecting to obtain dental care can have devastating effects on both oral and general health. Those who insist on avoiding the dentist’s chair must pay close attention to their oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing can help remove bacteria that can later cause serious infections, gum disease, and tooth loss. Even with the best home care, dental problems can arise. Dentists are the only professionals equipped to diagnose and treat tooth and gum conditions properly. Regular dental visits can put a halt to a painful hospital dental emergency before it happens.
