Emergency dental care is a crucial service provided by Dr. Mayur Patel to address urgent dental issues promptly and effectively. Dental emergencies can occur unexpectedly, and having access to immediate professional care is essential to alleviate pain and prevent further complications.

Common Dental Emergencies
Several situations may require emergency dental care, including:

  • Severe Toothache: Intense pain could indicate an infection or abscess that needs immediate attention.
  • Broken or Chipped Teeth: Accidents can result in damaged teeth that need urgent repair to restore function and aesthetics.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: A tooth that has been completely dislodged requires quick action to increase the chances of successful reimplantation.
  • Lost Fillings or Crowns: These can expose the underlying tooth to damage and sensitivity, necessitating prompt replacement.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Cuts or tears to the gums, cheeks or tongue should be assessed and treated to prevent infection and promote healing.
