How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in PittsburghOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Pittsburgh has approximately 180 dentists2, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy to find one when you need him the most. Even though there are many ways you can locate a dentist like Google Maps or Yelp, when experiencing a dental emergency you don’t want to browse through websites, compare reviews, and call yourself to schedule an appointment. Instead give us a call to do all that for you. We will locate an emergency dentist for you in under three minutes.
Most dental emergencies occur during off hours when people are not working. According to the American Dental Association, 45% of dentists in the US work on Saturdays, and only 4% work on Sundays3. Considering you’ll most likely experience a dental emergency in the evening, or on a weekend, when most dentist offices are closed, it might be difficult to find one that’s open. Since we cooperate with many dentists in Pittsburgh, we have access to their appointment books. That means that you can call us in the middle of the night looking for a dentist, and we can schedule an appointment for you the first thing in the morning with an emergency dentist near you. Our lines are open 24/7 and our dental referral specialists are ready to help you with any kind of question regarding your dental emergency. From what to do before reaching the dentist, to what kind of insurance or form of payment the dentist accepts, our agents are here to help you.
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.
Bringing your dental records to your dentist appointment is very important. Without them, the dentist won’t know what procedures you’ve done before, and won’t have any help with seeing what dental problems you might have developed since your last visit. If you don’t have your dental records, contact your previous dentist to get a copy. If you’re seeing the same dentist, he will have them, but you should tell him about any dental problems you’ve experienced since your last visit, such as bleeding gums, a toothache that suddenly comes and goes, or extreme sensitivity to hot or cold. Besides dental records, you should bring your insurance card. If you arrive 10 to 15 minutes early you will have time to give your insurance information to the staff at the dentist office and to fill out any forms they give you. Also you will have time to relax before your treatment begins.
Make a list of questions for the dentist before your appointment. Tell your dentist about your oral hygiene habits, and ask if he has any suggestions. Do the same for the products you’re using to clean your teeth. Inform your dentist if you’re taking any medication or supplements, and tell him about the products you’re using for cleaning your teeth. He might have some recommendations for you. Finally, ask your dentist how long you have to wait to eat or drink after the procedure.
Get a walk-in emergency dentist appointment todayCall us to schedule you an appointment with an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
The majority of dentists nowadays don’t accept walk-ins. One of the main reasons for it is that they have very busy schedules. Dentists can’t take you in unless you have an appointment that you have previously scheduled. A dentist may have a time slot open but he won’t know if the time is enough to treat your dental emergency since he doesn’t know your needs. If the dentist takes you in for an emergency appointment, he might have to postpone or cancel other patients’ appointments, risking bad reputation and reviews. Instead of going to the first dentist near you, call us to locate one, and schedule an appointment for you. Our service is completely free and since we have a US based call center that’s open 24/7, you can call us any time you want.
According to the American Dental Association, 20% of people in Pennsylvania avoid smiling and experience anxiety due to the condition of their mouth and teeth4. We attribute that to lack of preventive care, which doesn’t only include brushing and flossing regularly. Going to the dentist every six months is what actually helps your teeth from going bad. Seeing a problem with your dental health in its early stages and repairing it is much better than waiting until you get a toothache or a worse condition. Seeing a dentist on a regular basis will keep your teeth healthy, and your wallet from being empty.
Top emergency dentist procedures in PittsburghLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
A number of dental emergencies occur daily in Pittsburgh. One of the most common ones is a chipped tooth. While it doesn’t sound like a dental emergency, not treating it quickly can result in an infection. Same goes for a fractured tooth, but instead of an infection, you’re risking losing the tooth. A dentist can stop the crack from spreading and you will be able to use your tooth normally. A chipped crown can be repaired, provided that the tooth under the crown is not damaged as well. If you want a same day crown, tell us on the phone. We work with many dentist offices in Pittsburgh that make CEREC crowns, which are made so fast that you only need one visit, and you don’t need to put in a temporary crown until a new one is made.
