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.
The dentist needs to know if you have dental anxiety before your treatment starts. Otherwise, you will feel more stress and pain, and in return the dentist will receive negative reviews. If dentists know you suffer from dental anxiety, there are a number of ways they can calm you down. One of them is using sedation. If you’re scheduling an appointment through us, we will locate a dentist for you that specializes in sedation dentistry. Sedation can be used through the form of oral medication and nitrous oxide (laughing gas), which are the two most often used methods for basic procedures. For more extensive procedures, and for more severe cases of dental anxiety, the dentist can use intravenous (IV) sedation. Finally, general anesthesia is used for the most severe procedures, such as when a tooth that needs to be extracted is completely encased by bone. An oral surgeon, or an anesthesiologist is needed to administer general anesthesia.
There are other ways of reducing your high level of stress, before going to the dentist. Get a good night’s sleep as feeling well-rested also makes you feel more comfortable. Don’t drink sugary or caffeinated drinks on the day of your appointment, because they give you more energy and make you more excited, meaning you will feel more anxious about going to the dentist. It’s also a good idea to arrive early so you can get to know the staff and the surroundings, and not be in a rush.

The American Dental Association reports that only 4% of dentists in the US are working on Sundays, and 45% are working on Saturdays4. This makes it difficult for people working regular 9 to 5 jobs to see a dentist, because they will most likely have a fully booked schedule at evening hours or on the weekend. According to KFF, Jackson has over 70 dentists5, which is not enough for a population of 165,000. You should see a dentist every six months for a regular checkup and a cleaning, otherwise you risk developing cavities, which can be difficult to treat. Instead of the dentist simply cleaning your teeth, and giving you a filling, you might require an extensive and costly procedure, such as a root canal treatment. Even insurance companies know how important regular checkups are; that’s why they include free cleanings and checkups twice a year in most of their insurance plans.
It’s highly likely that the dentist will turn you away if you come to the office unannounced, asking to get treated right away. The staff at the dentist office will instead schedule an appointment for a later time. That’s because dentists need to carefully plan out their schedule if they want to efficiently run their dental practice. A better way to get to a dentist as soon as possible is to give us a call, so our dental referral specialists can schedule an emergency appointment for you.
Top emergency dentist procedures in JacksonLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
Some of the top emergency treatments in Jackson are repairing broken crowns, and installing new ones. If your crown is chipped, the dentist may only polish it, instead of making you a new one. Don’t wait too long before you go to the dentist, because a chipped crown can completely break, or the tooth underneath it can get a cavity since it’s not protected by the crown anymore. If your crown breaks, there is a chance the dentist can repair it, but in some cases, installing a new crown will be required. In those cases, you may opt for a CEREC crown, which is a dental crown made using the latest technology. It is comparable in price and quality, but the main advantage is that it’s made the same day you come to the office, meaning you won’t have to get a temporary crown installed, and make multiple visits.
