How Do I Know if I Need Emergency Dental Care?
There are some dental emergencies that need care as-soon-as-possible, such as knocked out teeth, broken dental work, or other injuries. However, there are other dental problems that you might not think need to be addressed immediately, such as bleeding gums, or items stuck between teeth. If you are experiencing any discomfort or are worried about your oral health, contacting Dr. Achikeh immediately will save your oral health in the long run. Our Silver Spring emergency dental office is happy to treat instances of:
• Avulsed (knocked-out) teeth
• Puffy, bleeding gums
• Extensive tooth damage
• Cracked or chipped teeth
• Broken dental work (fillings, crowns, dentures, etc)
Remember: the sooner you seek treatment, the sooner you can be out of pain and feeling confident about your oral health. Don’t “wait-and-see” in the event of a dental emergency. Dr. Achikeh is always on call and available to see you at his dental office for immediate treatment.
Modern Dental Technology for Comfortable Emergency Care
Dr. Achikeh makes uses of advancements in dental technology to ensure that your treatment is comfortable and promotes quick healing; he specializes in the use of dental lasers for certain treatments. Dental treatment with lasers helps keeps patients relaxed, as they don’t have to deal with noisy dental drills. Lasers are also efficient at precisely targeting treatment areas, so that time spent in the dentist's chair is lessened and recovery times are shorter.
