How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in DetroitOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
A dental emergency is any situation where your gums are bleeding, you have swollen cheeks, broken braces, a chipped, fractured, or a knocked out tooth, a chipped or a broken crown, or one that fell out. If you’re suffering from unbearable pain when no dentist offices near you are open, and are thinking of going to the nearest hospital’s emergency room, we advise against it. The only thing the staff at the hospital can do is give you pain relief medication and antibiotics in case you have a tooth abscess. They will charge you a lot of money, and you will still have to go to the dentist the next day.
Instead of going to the emergency room, give us a call and we will locate a dentist near you that can immediately take you in for an emergency treatment. If no dentists near you are open at night, or on a weekend, when most dentists are off, we will schedule an appointment for you for the first thing in the morning. We can do this because we have access to dentists’ appointment books, which makes us your best option to locate an emergency dentist and schedule an appointment.
According to the American Dental Association, around 45% of dentists in the US are open on Saturdays, and only 4% are open on Sundays3. The majority of people want to go to the dentist after work or on a weekend, but those are the busiest times for the dentist. If you want an appointment scheduled at a time that best suits you, call us and our dental referral specialists will arrange one in less than three minutes.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
Before going to the dentist for your appointment, make sure you have your dental records. If you’re seeing the same dentist, then it shouldn’t be a problem, because they will already have them from your last visit. However, if you’re switching dentists, contact your old one to obtain a copy of your dental records, or have them directly send them to your new dentist. Having your dental records will save you time and money, because you won’t have to take new x-rays, which show your cavities, fillings, crowns, and other things the dentist may find useful. They also contain information about your previous visits, and procedures, and medication you’re taking.
It’s always a good idea to come to the dentist at least 10 to 15 minutes early. This will ensure you have enough time to fill out the forms the staff at the office gives you, to sort out the payment, and to get to know the surroundings in case you’re suffering from dental anxiety. You can also bring a friend with you if you’re afraid of the dentist, because having someone you trust in the waiting room will make you feel more relaxed. If you’re suffering from dental anxiety, tell us when scheduling an appointment because we can find a dentist for you that specializes in sedation dentistry. These dentists can use different forms of sedation, such as oral medication, laughing gas, IV sedation, or general anesthesia, all depending on your level of anxiety, and the type of procedure you’re having.
When calling to schedule an appointment, tell your dentist if you have dental anxiety. In case you’re afraid of the dentist, they should know about it beforehand. This way, the dentist can prepare and talk to you about sedation options, such as IV sedation, oral medication, or laughing gas. The dentist can soothe the patient, and explain every part of the treatment process to make you more comfortable during your visit. In case you’re scheduling an appointment through us, tell us about your dental anxiety, so we can find a dentist that specializes in sedation dentistry.

Almost 25% of adults in Michigan avoid smiling and feel embarrassment due to the condition of their mouth and teeth, according to the American Dental Association4. The same report shows that out of the people that haven’t been to the dentist in over 12 months, 19% say it was because they found the location or time inconvenient, and 15% because they had trouble finding a dentist. Locating a dentist that has a free time slot open at the same time that you’re available can be difficult, especially in a busy city such as Detroit. This is especially true if you’re looking to find a dentist that accepts walk-ins. Instead, give us a call, and our dental referral specialists will locate an emergency dentist for you and schedule an appointment in less than three minutes. We will find a dentist that is in network with your insurance, or accepts your form of payment. We can also locate a dentist that specializes in pediatric dentistry or sedation dentistry. If you don’t have insurance, or have financial problems, our referral agents can also locate a dentist for you that offers help with financing.
Seeing a dentist every six months for a regular checkup or cleaning is imperative because waiting longer than that increases the chances of your teeth developing serious dental problems, which will require you to spend more money on extensive procedures, such as root canals or installing a crown.
Top emergency dentist procedures in DetroitLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
Approximately 30% of adults in Michigan haven’t had a dental visit in the last 12 months, as stated in a research done by McKinsey & Company5. That’s why people develop dental problems, which easily turn into dental emergencies. One of the most common emergency procedures in Detroit is treatment of a chipped tooth or a crown. While usually not causing pain, you may think it’s safe to continue chewing on these teeth. On the contrary, a chipped tooth can easily get infected, or get completely fractured, requiring the dentist to perform a root canal, and install a crown, or even have to extract the tooth. Same goes for a chipped crown, which can damage adjacent teeth, and the tooth underneath it.
