Dental Emergencies – Prevention is the Best Cure

dca-blog_dental-emergencies-first-aid-kit

A recent trend at American hospitals suggests a serious problem with the nation’s dental health. Many people neglect to get dental care when the first signs of a problem appear. They wait until an abscess or another painful dental emergency develops, and they visit a hospital emergency room. In hospitals across the country, thousands of ER visits related to dental emergencies occur. The fact that one-third of American citizens do not have dental insurance is one of the leading factors contributing to the trend. Sadly, patients receiving emergency dental care in a hospital setting are not getting the care they need to save their teeth.

Preventing a Dental Emergency – Neglecting to obtain dental care can have devastating effects over time on both oral and general health. People who insist on avoiding going to the dentist need to pay close attention to their oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing can help remove bacteria that could later cause serious infections, gum disease, and tooth loss. Even with the best home care, a dental emergency can arise. Dentists are the only professionals equipped to properly diagnose and treat tooth and gum conditions. Routine dental visits can stop a dental emergency before it happens.

The ER is Not Designed for Emergency Dental Treatment – Hospitals are being inundated with dental patients and typically 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. The increase in hospital visits for emergency dental care is primarily associated with people between the ages of 20 and 39. Although these 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.
