What's really important when you have a dental emergency is that you exactly know which one is the best emergency dental practice in Tacoma. Here at Xtracare Dental, we have highly trained staff who can help you with your emergency treatment.
Our Tacoma emergency dentist, Dr. Richard Guzha can diagnose your condition and treat the issue as soon as he can. Usually, emergencies can range from oral infections to a tooth fracture causing severe pain. Dental emergencies do not always involve pain, although this is a common signal that something needs to be looked at. Pain can originate from the tooth, surrounding tissues or can have the sensation of originating in the teeth but be caused by an independent source (orofacial pain and toothache).
Fractures (dental trauma) can occur anywhere on the tooth or to the surrounding bone, depending on the site and extent of fracture the treatment options will vary. Dental restoration falling out or fracturing can also be considered a dental emergency as these can impact on function in regards to aesthetics, eating and pronunciation and as such should be tended to with the same haste as loss of tooth tissue. All dental emergencies should be treated under the supervision or guidance of a dental health professional in order to preserve the teeth for as long as possible.
