Emergency 24H treatment is defined as medical treatment or care available round the clock for any medical emergency. Emergency dental treatment means relief from dental emergencies such as bleeding, serious infection, inflammation, injuries, and pain. Dental emergencies may require urgent treatment from the dentist and are handled by experienced staff.
A thorough physical examination of the patient is carried out before deciding on the course of treatment. If the condition of the patient is considered very serious, immediate relief by the way of treatment is offered. However, if the pain is not very serious, he may be provided first aid in the form of pain relief and given an appointment for subsequent treatment the following day. Some common types of emergencies include bacterial/fungal/viral infections to a fractured tooth, fractures (dental trauma) that affect vital functions such as aesthetics, eating, and speech. These should be tended to with great precision and urgency.
The chief aim of emergency treatment is to provide immediate relief from pain. Emergency procedures usually do not include complex dental surgeries or treatments. X-rays and other diagnostic procedures may be carried out if they are deemed necessary. The cost of treatment depends on the nature of the problem.
