Help, it’s an Emergency!

No one likes a dental emergency, but as a dentist I feel that helping a patient who has an emergency is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my job. Yesterday for example, I had a patient who came to the office crying because she was in so much pain that she couldn’t even talk. The patient was understandably irritated and not in the best of moods. I evaluated the tooth and we took an x-ray of the area and it turned out that the tooth was abscessed as I had suspected. This happens when decay (a cavity) is in a tooth for so long that it eventually reaches the nerve and causes an infection in the supporting bone underneath the gum. The tooth needed root canal treatment and then to be restored with a crown to prevent future fractures. I explained it to the patient and she agreed to treatment. And this is where the part I love started, as soon as I numbed her you could see how happy to she was to be out of pain. She was a completely different person. Seeing that change in her and how happy she was more than made my day and reminded me why I chose this job. Sure it can be very stressful sometimes, but there is no greater feeling that knowing you can comfort someone in pain. It’s the best.
