Immediate Care

Immediate Care

There are two primary types of dentists that are there to assist you during a dental emergency. One of them is simply known as an Emergency Dentist, and the others is a 24 Hour Dentist. Although they provide many of the same services, there are distinct differences between the two.

The one thing that they both have in common, however, is that they are both available for immediate care, but the extent of that immediacy is limited to the hours of operation that each holds. Whereas an emergency dentist might be on call, she might also simply provide emergency dental services during his or her normal or extended office hours. A 24 hour dentist, on the other hand, is always open 24 hours a day, day or night to assist you.

In the event that you have a dental emergency occur during the late hours of the night or the wee early hours of the morning during which time you can’t find an emergency dentist available, a 24 hour dentist is there to assist you. In some dental situations, you simply cannot bear to wait for a normal office hours appointment, in which case, it’s pertinent for you to seek immediate dental care.

Emergency Dentist

Emergency Dentist

An emergency dentist is one who is available during a dental emergency that requires immediate attention. Most emergency dentists are available during normal office hours as well as extended office hours. For instance, many emergency dentists work after hours or are willing to come in early in order to accommodate a dental emergency. They also might be willing to come in on weekends when necessary to attend to your issue. Their hours and availability to work are generally much more flexible than that of general dentists who hold traditional, normal office hours.

Similar to a medical emergency room, an emergency dentist is one that you go to when you believe that you’re having a dental emergency and simply cannot wait for a traditional dental appointment. Just like when you have a bad arm or leg break and need to seek medical attention immediately when you have suffered from a broken tooth or other dental situation. You need to seek out an emergency dentist to deal with your dental situation immediately. Likewise, just as an untreated medical emergency can quickly morph into a much bigger and more complex medical issue, so can a dental emergency.

We realize that finding an emergency dentist near you isn’t always as easy as it sounds. You might not know where any emergency dentists are located off hand, and when you’re experiencing excruciating pain, the last task you’ll want to be presented with is that of having to find a dentist near you who’s willing to deal with your emergency.

24 Hour Dentist

24 Hour Dentist

A 24 Hour Dentist, on the other hand, truly goes above and beyond. As their name implies, they are available 24 hours a day for your convenience so that no matter what time of day or night you have a dental emergency you can receive the treatment that you so desperately need. A 24 hour dentists might work at a 24 hour emergency dental center, or she might simply be on call at any time day or night. Regardless, a 24 hour dentist is advantageous to have if you happen to have a dental emergency at 2 o'clock in the morning when no one else is open.

Because this type of dentist is committed to working such odd hours, they are, predictably, the most difficult type of dentist to locate. In fact, your area might not have a 24 hour dental center located in it. However, there’s no need to fear because if you do require dental assistance at 2 o’clock in the morning, we can still help you find a dentist near you that can help.

Believe it or not, most emergency rooms have a 24 hour dentist on staff in order to accommodate those patients who happen to have dental emergencies that require immediate medical attention during non-daylight hours. In the event that there aren’t any 24 hour dental centers located in your area, you will be connected with the nearest dentist that will be able to see you ask quickly as they possibly can.

Finding a dentist who’s willing to work during the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. can sometimes prove challenging, but when all else fails, you should be able to find one at an emergency room. Emergency rooms are professional centers that ensure that they have enough of each type of professional on staff to deal with virtually any type of medical emergency that might arise, including dental emergencies. Dental emergencies are, in fact, medical emergencies too, as they can directly affect the health of your body as well. For instance, some types of dental pain and conditions can make you physically ill, causing you to respond with a raised body temperature, nausea and vomiting, bowel movements, headaches and other such distressing symptoms.

Convenience Care

Convenience Care

When you're not necessarily having a dental emergency, but are simply in need of convenience care, we can still assist you. 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find dentists in your area who offer you dental care on your terms. We'll help you find dental offices that are open at hours that suit your schedule.

Perhaps you’re a busy mom or a business professional who’s either always at the office or frequently find yourself traveling for work. Regardless of the reason or how busy your life is, you’ll still require dental care from time to time in order to see the state of your dental health. Instead of necessarily having to work your schedule around a dentist's office hours by having to take off work to meet your appointment, wouldn’t it be so much better if you could simply schedule a dentist appointment that fits your schedule?

At 24 Hourly Dentists, we don’t believe that you should have to change your life to fit the hours of a dental office. That’s why we’ve assembled a list of dentists near you who offer convenient dental care on your terms.

After Hour Dentist

After Hour Dentist If you're a busy business professional or have children in school and you have to juggle around picking them up from school and extracurricular activities, then you might not always have enough time in the day to make a traditional dentist appointment. If this is the case, then it would certainly behoove you to know where a dentist is who is willing to offer after hour care. Fortunately, there are some dentists out there who are willing to schedule you an after hour appointment in such situations.

Although some dentists offer after hour care via their dental offices that are simply open for extended hours on certain days of the week, others simply accommodate you by offering special after hours appointments when you request them. For instance, some dentists might choose to be open an extra hour or two on Tuesdays and Thursdays or other days of the week. Conversely, others might hold to normal office hours, but if you request to have an after hours appointment, they will accommodate you.

A typical work day consists of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., so any dentist that is willing to provide you with dental care after 5 p.m. is generally considered an after hour dentist. Sometimes finding dental offices that are open after the traditional work day is done is difficult. However, if you’re determined to take your child to the dentist after school or to go to the dentist yourself after your work day has ended, we can help you find the dentist nearest you who is willing to see you after hours.

24 Hourly Dentists not only provides assistance with finding emergency dentists, but convenience dentists as well who are willing to work non-traditional hours in order to see to your convenience. When you lead such a busy life, it might also be difficult for you to fit enough time into a day to find out where all the dentists near you are located. Indeed, it can be difficult to conduct a search when it seems as if you’re already jumping from one task to another with no time in between to breathe. That’s where we come in.

24 Hourly Dentists can help you find the after hours dentists that are nearest you in a flash without you ever having to conduct the search. You can simply call us, let us know your location and we’ll hunt down the nearest after hours dentist for you.

Dentist Near Me

Dentist Near Me Of course, if you're like most of us, then you're all about saving money on transportation costs as well as saving time. If that's the case, then you'll certainly want to know which dentists are located nearby so that you don't have to travel very far to get to them. Any time you set up a dental appointment, the travel time must be accounted for in order to make sure that you truly have enough time to make it to your appointment. By going to a nearby dentist, you can ensure that it takes you less time to get to your appointment.

Besides, who wants to have to travel far away to go to their dentist? Not only is this time-consuming and expensive, but it can also be painstaking to do if you happen to be in dental pain and are visiting your dentist in hopes of getting that pain taken care of. It makes no sense to travel far to go to a dentist if you locate one near you who offers the types of dental services that you’re looking for.

Sometimes, though, it might be more difficult for you to locate a dentist near you than it would seem to be on the surface. This is especially true if you happen to live in a rural area where options are limited. Urban areas are much more likely to be abundant with plenty of choices when it comes to dental care, medical care and so on. Still, even if you live in a largely unpopulated area, we can help you search out the dentist nearest you when you require dental care.

24 Hourly Dentists can help you find dental professionals from all over the nation. No matter what your zip code is, by calling you can get free assistance in finding the dentists within your proximity. This cuts down on the amount of time that you have to spend traveling to and from the dentist. This, in turn, frees up your time and money for tasks and hobbies that they would better be spent on. Plus, you can get the results relatively quickly when you allow 24 Hourly Dentists to assist you instead of going through the grudging process of searching out the information on your own.

Same Day Dentist

Same Day Dentist If you've ever called into a dental office and tried to get an appointment for the same day, then you've probably experienced how difficult it can be to get a same day appointment. Some dental offices stay too booked up to offer same day visits. 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find dental offices that make it a point to offer enough staff members to accommodate same day treatments when you need them.

If you’re like many of us, you probably put off going to the dentist until you absolutely have to, which means that when that time rolls around, you usually end up experiencing difficulty in finding a dentist who doesn’t already have an appointment booked for the day. Alternatively, perhaps you just get busy and forget to make your dentist appointments until you need them. Regardless of the reason why you haven’t made an appointment with the dentist, when you do find yourself with a free moment and need to go to the dentist, it would certainly be advantageous to know where a same day dentist near you is located.

As their name implies, same day dentists are available to treat you the same day. In other words, they accept walk-in appointments and, in a sense, serve as an urgent dental care center. Maybe you didn’t know that you would need to go to the dentist that day. Perhaps you’ve experienced a dental situation that doesn’t necessarily require emergency dental care, but you’d still like to get the situation checked out that day. No matter what particular type of dental situation you’re dealing with, a same day dentist could be just the ticket for you if you’re wanting to walk right into a dental office and receive treatment on the same day without having to have an appointment.

While same day dentists will generally see you the same day that you walk into their offices, whether or not you receive same day treatment depends, in part, on the time of day that you arrive at their offices as well what your particular dental situation is. For instance, while you might go to a same day dentist in hopes of getting dentures, the dentist will likely have a consultation with you that day about the types of dentures that you want, and then you’ll have to attend follow-up appointments in order to have impressions made, get the dentures crafted and have them fitted. For many general services like routine cleanings, though, a same day dentist can probably get you in and out that day, though. One thing is for sure, one call to 24 Hourly Dentists is all you have to make.

Dentists Open Saturday

Dentists Open Saturday

Maybe Saturday is the only day that you have free to attend to appointments, or perhaps you just prefer to have your appointments scheduled then. Whatever the reason, we can also help you find a dental office that is open on Saturday if that's when you want a dental appointment. Some dentists are willing to work Saturday in addition to their normal office hours.

In fact, since Saturday falls within the normal work hours for many dentists across the nation, finding a dentist who is working on Saturdays generally isn’t too difficult a task in essence. However, the problem comes in when you’re looking for a dentist near you who’s open on Saturday. Again, this can especially be troublesome if you live in a rural area where dentists and other healthcare professionals are few and far between anyways.

Perhaps your children have sporting events to play in, or maybe you simply want to spend some time with your friends or families after work throughout the weekdays. Alternatively, perhaps you’d simply prefer a quiet evening at home after work to relax with a good book or a glass of wine instead of having to rush to dental appointments after a hard day of work to attend to your oral health. Regardless of the reason why you prefer to schedule your dental appointments on the weekend, 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find the dentist nearest you can help make that possible.

24 Hourly Dentist can help you find dentists near you who are open Saturdays, all you have to do is call. Our referral service is always completely free and designed to make your life easier by helping you locate the type of dentist that you need in the area that you need him or her. Why muddle through Yellow Pages and Internet ad listings looking for a dentist who’s open on Saturday when we’ve already done the hard work for you?

Dentist Open Sunday

Dentist Open Sunday Likewise, you might be busy on Saturday and every other day throughout the week, so Sunday might be the only day that you have free to attend to appointments and such. If that's the case, then 24 Hourly Dentists can also help you find a dental office that is open on Sunday. A Sunday dentist appointment can make it so that you don't have to miss work or give up any weekend activities that you have scheduled on Saturday to go to the dental office.

Finding a dental office that’s open on Sundays is oftentimes more difficult than finding one that’s open on other days of the week. Not only is Sunday usually set aside for spiritual services and football, but it’s not a generally accepted work day. Regardless there are dentists available that they may or may not be willing to work on Sundays. Finding one who’s willing to give up that day of rest can sometimes prove challenging, but that’s where we come in. 24 Hourly Dentists can help find you a local dentist that might be open Sunday in your area, or willing to at least see you if its an urgent matter.

Perhaps it’s not just that Sunday is the only day that you have available to go the dentist. Maybe you have a toothache, break or chip or tooth or have some other type of severe dental situation come up on a Sunday of all days. In such an instance, it would certainly be helpful if you to know where a dentist is located near you who can provide you treatment on a Sunday.

In the event that there aren’t any dental offices open in your area on Sundays, 24 Hourly Dentists can still be helpful. Most emergency rooms keep dentists on staff on Sundays so that dental situations that their physicians aren’t necessarily specialists at dealing with can be competently handled when patients come in with them. If there’s not a traditional dental office open near you on Sundays, then you may be connected to a dentist that is on call and willing to see patients during off hours.

Walk In Dentist

Walk In Dentist If you're one of those people who's not good at scheduling and meeting dental appointments, then you might simply prefer a walk in dental office. A walk in office is also ideal if a dental situation occurs that requires immediate dental attention. At 24 Hourly Dentists, we can help you find walk in dental clinics near you that are willing to accept you on a walk in basis.

Maybe your life is so busy and you’re constantly juggling activities for you, your husband or wife and children that making and keeping a dental appointment proves difficult. Instead, it might be easier for you to go to the dental office when you find yourself with a surprising moment of free time. Instead of having to break other appointments to make a dental one, you can go to a walk in dentist who will accept you without the need for you to have previously scheduled an appointment.

It’s important to note, however, that while a walk in dentist will accept walk ins, they usually operate on a first-come, first-serve basis, which means that if you are one of the first people to arrive at the clinic, you’ll likely increase the likelihood you receiving treatment sooner than people who arrive after you. Also, you arrive at a walk in dental clinic at the end of the day when the clinic is just getting ready to close, then it might not be feasible for the dentist to see you at that time, especially if your appointment is projected to take any length of time.

Still, no matter whether you’re looking to go into a walk in clinic first thing in the morning or later on in the day, 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find a walk in clinic near you where you can do just that. It can certainly be time consuming for you to have to manually call all the dental clinics near you yourself to ask them whether or not they accept walk ins, and it’s completely unnecessary when we have done all that work for you. Instead of putting yourself through the hassle of having to find a walk in clinic in your area yourself, simply turn to 24 Hourly Dentists, and we’ll quickly and easily point you in the right direction without you having to stress yourself out any further.

Sedation Dentist

Sedation Dentist For those of you who have dental phobias, then there is also a convenient option for you. Some dentists offer a variety of sedation methods to better help their patients relax during their dental visits. General anesthesia, numbing shots and more can not only help put you at ease and make the dental treatment process more bearable, but they can also help you deal with any dental pain associated with certain types of treatment. If you harbor any type of anxiety about going to the dentist, 24 Hourly Dentists can also help you locate a nearby dentist who is equipped to deal with your dental fears.

Although many people dread going to the dentist, going to the dentist doesn’t have to be an unpleasant experience. Nowadays, there’s plenty of technology available to us that make it so that it certainly doesn’t have to be. Plenty of medicine and sedation aids exist that can help ease you into a more relaxed and less anxious state while you’re undergoing treatment at the dental office. Plus, you don’t have to worry about any adverse side effects since all of these sedation methods are completely optional and have been scientifically proven to be safe. Otherwise, they never would have been approved for usage in the first place.

While most of the time you won’t be put completely to sleep while undergoing a dental procedure, you can certainly be given gas and medication to help you relax and put into a dream-like state during which you are awake but you feel comfortably drowsy and less paranoid and jumpy. While it’s customary to have some sort of sedation with certain types of dental procedures, such as when you’re undergoing a root canal or something else of this sort, you can even have sedation simply if you are too nervous to deal with undergoing a dental procedure otherwise.

Oftentimes, sedation dentists, referred by many as sleep dentists, are aware of the types of dental phobias that many of their patients face, and they’ve, therefore, undergone additional measures to see to their patients’ comfort. For instance, their dental office may be designed in cool, calming colors with serene artwork and soothing musical tunes playing that tend to create a calming ambiance. Regardless of how deep your dental fear runs, we can help you find a sedation dentist near you who can help you put you at ease long enough so that you can attend to your oral health.

Specialty

Specialty There different types of dental professionals who specialize in different areas of dentistry. Whereas some dentists are primarily concerned with the overall health of the teeth, others might offers cosmetic services to make their appearance better. When you're looking for a certain type of dental service, it's important to ensure that you contact the type of dentist that offers that service.

Seeking out the correct dentist that specializes in the type of dental procedure that you plan on having done is very important. For instance, while your general family dentist might be sufficient for annual dental checkups, she might not be equipped or knowledgeable enough about orthodontics to install braces on your children’s teeth or attend to a variety of other orthodontic dental matters. No matter what type of dentist you’re looking for, our dentist directory can search for all the dentists of that specialty within the radius that you specify.

General Dentist

General Dentist A general dentist is the traditional type of dentist that you go to to get your annual dental checkups and to undergo routine teeth cleanings. General dentists, also treat toothaches, abscessed teeth, cavities and other common dental conditions. They might administer general anesthesia in some of the dental treatments that they offer, and they are primarily concerned with the overall health of the teeth, mouth and gums.

General dentists are usually the first type of dentist that you turn to when you have a dental problem, and they are also the ones that you usually go to every year for your checkups and dental cleanings to ensure that your teeth are doing fine. They diagnose dental conditions, and they recommend the best form of treatment. While general dentists are usually equipped and skilled enough to treat most types of common dental conditions, for certain dental conditions and ones that are severe enough, they might refer you to a specialist, much in the same way that your general practitioner will sometimes refer you to another medical specialist when she feels that you have a medical problem that’s significant enough that it requires specialized treatment.

For those issues that general dentists can treat, though, they provide a variety of treatment methods, depending upon your particular dental condition. Whereas some dental conditions might require prescription antibiotics in order for you to fully recover from them, others might require in-office treatment. Likewise, if you’re suffering from a painful dental condition, general dentists do have the authority to write prescriptions for pain medication, and in some severe cases, they might write you a prescription if you need it. In lesser cases when they feel that the dental pain can be aptly managed with over the counter medication, they simply might perform their in office treatment and then advise you to take over the counter medication to deal with any lingering pain symptoms that you might experience.

General dentists can also set you up a dental treatment plan that’s designed to protect your gums and prevent you from developing gingivitis. They might educate you on the proper ways to care for your teeth, and they can also assist you with getting crowns, fillings, veneers, bridges and more. This type of dentist tend to be more abundant than other types of dental specialists, so you might need assistance weeding through all the ones out there.

Family Dentist

Family Dentist Like a general dentist, a family dentist is one who is responsible for seeing to the overall health of the teeth, mouth and gums. However, a family dentist is one who you generally go to continuously and develop a personalized treatment plan. This is the dentist who comes to know you and your family a bit more personally and who tailors a dental treatment plan to meet your teeth's particular needs. Family dentists might refer you to specialists in the event that they feel as if your teeth require services that are outside their general range of specialty.

Some of the common types of dental procedures that family dentists conduct include tooth inspections, teeth cleanings, root canal therapy and fillings. Most of them can also do the same basic cosmetic dental procedures that general dentists can, such as basic tooth whitening, the formation and attachment of dental bridges, placement of crowns and dentures and even a limited amount of bonding. When procedures become too specialized or complex, though, a family dentist will usually refer you to a specialist that she knows and feels confident in entrusting your dental care to for more advanced treatments that she is not apt to perform.

A family dentist function in the same manner similarly to the popular "family doctor". Therefore, if a family dentist is someone that you’re going to be going to frequently for dental checkups and when you have a dental issue arise, then you’ll likely want to go to one whose dental office is conveniently located near you. Depending upon where you live, it may or may not be difficult to find a family dentist near you. More likely than not, there are plenty of family dentists to choose from, but sorting through all of them can be a hassle. That’s where we come in.

Pediatric_Dentist

Pediatric Dentist A pediatric dentist specializes in the healthy growth and development of children's teeth, she would be best equipped to ensure that your child's teeth are coming in properly. Plus, pediatric dentists tend to have special knowledge and skills concerning children and how to get them to respond to dental treatment better. For instance, a pediatric dental office is likely to have a positive and fun atmosphere for children where children's movies are played during treatment to distract them and toys are offered in the waiting area.

Pediatric dentists generally attend to the oral health of children throughout their infancy up into their teen years. These types of dentists are specially trained to be knowledgeable about the development of children’s teeth, mouths, gums and jaws, and they are arguably one of the most important types of dental professionals since the way that the teeth and mouth area develop in the early years can affect an individual’s dental state in adulthood.

Pediatric dentists are the ones who ensure that children’s teeth, gums and more are coming in properly and are aligned properly. They are also the ones who diagnose any pediatric dental conditions and recommend the appropriate type of treatment. They often work closely with a team of other dental specialists if children have irregular growth that they are attempting to correct. For instance, pediatric dentists frequently work with orthodontists in order to develop a treatment plan for children who have overbites, underbites and other dental alignment and development issues. It’s important that pediatric dentists work with specialists in order to ensure that children not only receive the specialized care that’s essential to proper growth and development, but also that they receive the general dental care that they need to ensure optimum dental health.

Pediatric dentists are also usually very good with children and have child-friendly dental offices. Their offices might be filled with plenty of toys and children’s activities and staff members who are good with children. If you have children and would prefer to take them to a pediatric dentist over a regular one, then 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find a pediatric dentist in your area.

Prosthodontist

Prosthodontist If you're missing teeth and require partial plates or dentures, then a prosthodontist is the dental professional to turn to. A prosthodontist specializes in creating dental prosthetics to make the teeth look better in appearance. While a general dentist can sometimes fabricate your dentures and partial plates, in order to do so, they send off the impressions of your teeth to an external lab that has a prosthodontist on staff anyways, so in order to receive the best results, it might be best for you to go to a prosthodontist outright in the first place.

In addition specializing in restoring teeth, prosthodontists also have specialized knowledge about the structure of the jaw. Because of this, they are oftentimes the type of dental specialist that patients are referred to when they have temporomandibular disorders like TMJ or TMD. Prothodontists are the dental specialists who are usually consulted about matters involving the jaw structure and the proper replacement of teeth. While they oftentimes replace a single tooth, their training and experience in the field is advanced enough that they can replace multiple teeth via dental implants and other complex procedures.

While general dentists can perform minimal tooth replacement procedures, some patients choose to go to prosthodontists from the beginning when they need teeth replaced since prosthodontists are the ones who are recognized for their extensive training and experience in the field. Not only do prosthodontists complete dental school, but they also have to complete an additional three years of specialized and advanced training to earn their titles. They are known for using the most advanced and state-of-the-art technology available in the dental field in their practices, which is another reason that some patients prefer to go to them over more general types of dentists when they need their teeth replaced.

If you need a prosthodontists and you don't know where one is located in your area, there's no need to worry because 24 Hourly Dentists can assist you.

Endodontist

Endodontist When a nerve in your tooth dies, then you'll most likely require a root canal. The type of dentist that technically specializes in root canals is an endodontist. While a general dentist might be able to perform a root canal, an endodontist is the one who has specialized knowledge in the workings of the nerves in the mouth and gums, so she might be the one that you'd rather turn to when you're in need of such services.

Endodontists have an extra two years of specialized training and education in the composition of the tooth and the roots of it. Technically, what endodontists specialize in is maintaining the teeth through what is known as endodontic therapy. Endodontic therapy is simply treatment that involves the soft inner tissue of the tooth that is more commonly known as the pulp. While all dentists are required to learn a bit of endodontics, some problems with the pulp of a tooth are more complex than others, and for such problems, you’ll most likely be referred to an endodontist who has specialized knowledge in that area of the tooth.

Although usually when people are referred to an endodontist, their general dentist has already diagnosed what’s wrong with their tooth, an endodontist can also perform a diagnosis in addition to treatment. In fact, after going to the endodontist, it’s not uncommon for the dental professional to pinpoint another deeper issue with the pulp or root of the tooth that the general family dentist wasn’t able to get to.

If you are in the need of an intense root canal or are experiencing some other type of issue with the root of your teeth, then we can help you find an endodontist near you. Oftentimes endodontists are located in a suite of buildings alongside other dental specialists, but sometimes they retain their own separate, standalone offices too. Regardless of where the office is located, 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find an endodontist near you so that you won’t have to travel very far to receive the root canal or other root treatment that you need.

Periodontist

Periodontist Periodontal disease is a condition that all dentists try to help their patients avoid, but in the event that you do develop periodontal disease, then a periodontist might be the type of dental professional that would best serve you. A periodontist specializes in the diagnosis and prevention of it in the first place. Periodontist harbor specialized knowledge about the gums, and they also help deal with oral inflammation. After completing dental school, periodontists undergo an extra three years of education and training pertaining specifically to the gums.

Because periodontists assist with the prevention of periodontal disease, you don’t necessarily have to have periodontal disease already to go to them. Instead, you might want to consult with a periodontist to have your teeth and gums expertly evaluated to determine at which stage of dental health you are. There are different stages leading up to periodontal disease, and a periodontist can appropriately identify which stage you’re in. She can then advise you on the steps that you can take to reverse the process leading up to the disease and to prevent it from progressing further.

For people who have many gum problems, especially more severe issues, surgical procedures are sometimes necessary to appropriately address those issues. In such instances, periodontists are the dental professionals best equipped for their job. Periodontists regularly work with advanced surgical equipment to help treat patients with severe oral inflammation. For instance, some of the more common types of treatments that periodontists provide that requires surgical equipment includes root scaling and planing, root surface debridement and even the placement, maintenance and repair of dental implants.

Regardless of the reason why you want to seek out the services of a periodontist, 24 Hourly Dentists can assist you in locating a periodontist near you. While your general dentist might refer you to one, you might want to find one closer that accepts your insurance. We can help.

Orthodontist

Orthodontist Orthodontists are among the most common types of specialists that people are referred to, especially children since they are the ones who primarily deal with braces and other corrective dental services. Orthodontists have specialized knowledge of how the teeth, jaw and other structural components of the mouth work and grow together to create your smile. They can help address issues such as underbites, overbites and other irregular bites. In addition to braces, orthodontist might also use other dental appliances to help correct irregular dental conditions and get proper alignment back on track.

Whereas general dentists are primarily concerned with the health of the teeth, orthodontists are primarily concerned with fixing facial and dental irregularities. This isn’t to say that orthodontists aren’t concerned with the overall health of the mouth because they certainly are, but rather than looking for cavities and other such signs of disease in the mouth, they specialize in repairing problems with the growth and alignment of the teeth and mouth.

Perhaps what orthodontists are most known for is braces. They are usually the ones who place braces on patients’ teeth, tighten the braces as tightening is needed and generally oversee everything pertaining to the braces throughout the treatment period. Sometimes they work with a patient’s family dentist to ensure that general dental treatment and orthodontic treatment correlate and complement one another. While orthodontists most often provide orthodontic treatment to children, they may also treat adults, depending upon the particular orthodontist in question.

Some of the other type of gear that orthodontists provide patients with is headgear and facemasks. In some more severe cases, patients require more than braces to attend to their overbites and underbites. In these instances, headgear and facemasks attach to the braces over the head, and they further encourage the proper alignment of the teeth and jaws.

Nowadays, there are many options when it comes to braces, and most dentists offer most if not all of those options in their practices. For instance, if you or your child is averse to getting traditional metal braces, then you can get colored ones, clear ones or even invisible ones. Likewise, there are also linear braces that are positioned on the inside of the teeth instead of on the front of them. No matter what kind of braces or other orthodontic treatment you’re looking to get for yourself or your child, we can help you find an orthodontist in your area to assist you.

Oral Surgeon

Oral Surgeon As the name implies, an oral surgeon is a dentist who specializes in performing oral surgeries. While other types of dentists might use general anesthesia and other types of sedation aids to put their patients at ease, oral surgeons are the ones who primarily specialize in performing more intense types of oral surgeries. For instance, if you're wanting to get dental implants placed inside your mouth, then you'll require the expertise and qualification of an oral surgeon.

Although an oral surgeon is required to perform every type of oral surgery, they are the ones who are generally recommended for more complex ones. Oral surgeons are particularly distinguished in the dental community because not only have they put in their four years of dental school, but they have also gone on to complete another four years in a hospital-based residency program that is specific to surgeries. They are trained right alongside all the other medical professionals who are learning about emergency medicine, anesthesiology and surgical procedures in general. Therefore, they are the only dental professionals who are actually licensed and certified to administer all levels of sedation.

Some of the most common types of procedures that oral surgeons perform include tooth extractions, corrective jaw surgeries, cleft lip and palate surgeries, bone grafting procedures, dental implants and much more. While you might question why they do tooth extractions when a general dentist can do that, in some more complex tooth extractions, patients might feel more confident entrusting their extraction to a more trained professional. When the wisdom teeth become impacted, this might be beyond the scope of a general dentist, in which case, you would probably be referred to an oral surgeon.

Complex surgeries that deal with both the hard and soft tissues of the face and mouth areas, such as cleft lip and palate corrective surgeries require oral surgeons. Also, any time you need to have a bone graft done in your mouth, an oral surgeon is the one you’ll likely be referred to. Even people who suffer from certain types of oral cancers and obstructive sleep apnea might find themselves in need of an oral surgeon. If you need an oral surgeon and have questions or wanted to find one that accepts your insurance plan, 24 Hourly Dentists can help.

Toothache

Toothache When you have a toothache, simply settling for over-the-counter medications might not be sufficient enough to deal with the problem.

At 24 Hourly Dentists, we can help pair you up with a dentist who is equipped to diagnosis the reason for your toothache as well as treat it and prescribe any prescription pain medication that they think you might need.

While there are many possible causes for a toothache, only a dentist can properly diagnose just what the cause of your toothache is. Dentists have the specialized tools and equipment needed to inspect your teeth and get at the root of the problem, literally. In cases where simply looking inside your mouth inside sufficient enough to diagnose the problem with your tooth, dentists have X-ray technology at their fingertips that they can employ to evaluate deeper issues with your teeth.

Toothaches are oftentimes said to be one of the most uncomfortable types of pains in existence. While you can try to stave off a toothache on your own with home remedies and the medications that are available for purchase in pharmacies. If a toothache persists, then you might simply have to resign yourself to seeing a professional. Dentists have the skill, knowledge and equipment to best serve you. Many dentists have anesthesia and numbing shots to make the tooth removal process more bearable. Plus, they also have the specialized knowledge and skill pertaining to the best way to remove teeth from all angles. There are generally two types of transactions: simple ones and complex ones. While general dentists are oftentimes skilled enough to address most simple extractions and even some complex ones, for some particularly severe complex extractions, an endodontist or oral surgeon might be the best choice.

No matter what type of dental specialist you prefer to see about your toothache, 24 Hourly Dentists can help.

Bleeding Gums

Bleeding Gums

Any time you're bleeding from anywhere on your body it can be alarming, but this is especially so when you're bleeding from your gums. Bleeding from your gums can be an indicator of various types of dental conditions, and only a dental professional can properly diagnosis the cause for your bleeding gums.

That's where 24 Hourly Dentists comes in; we'll help you find a dentist nearby who can assist you with your dental issue.

There are numerous causes of bleeding gums, and only a dentist can properly diagnose just what the cause of your bleeding gums is. Oftentimes, gums bleed because they have become inflamed due to bacteria that has accumulated around and in them. This bacteria irritates the gums and causes them to become red, swollen and sensitive, so that when the teeth are brushed or undergo other types of strenuous activities, they might break open and bleed. Only a dentist can look at your teeth and gum line and evaluate your oral hygiene practices to determine just what the cause of your bleeding gums is.

While sometimes the gums might bleed when you switch to a new toothbrush that has bristles that are too hard, the most common cause of bleeding gums is when the gums are in the first stage of gingivitis. This stage occurs when plaque builds up on the teeth and isn’t properly removed via brushing and flossing. The longer the plaque sits there, the longer it’s allowed to fester and infect your gums, which leads to the swollen state of them that was mentioned before.

In some rarer instances, bleeding gums might even be a side effect of certain types of medications that are causing your gums to swell. When you go to a dentist, she will ask you about your dental habits, how long the bleeding has been going on, when it most frequently happens, what types of medications you’ve been taking and how long and when the bleeding began. No matter why you suspect your gums are bleeding, we can direct you to a dental professional who can help you get to the sure cause of the issue.

Broken Tooth

Broken Tooth

A broken tooth not only alters the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, but it can be painful as well, especially if the tooth is broken off in a way that exposes the nerve of the tooth. In such instances, you'll likely be in immense pain and require the services of an emergency dentist right away. 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find an emergency dentist in your area who can not only restore the appearance of your broken tooth, but who can also treat any pain associated with the condition.

There are many causes for a broken tooth, but the most common among them is physical injury. Most of the time, people who suffer from broken teeth get them as a result of a car accident, contact sport, chewing something hard, physical assault or some other type of traumatic physical experience. Also, in most instances, a broken tooth comes with a great deal of pain, especially if the pulp of the tooth is exposed. The last thing that you’ll want to have to worry about when you’ve got a broken tooth is having to find out where to go to get your issue addressed. 24 Hourly Dentists can quickly and efficiently direct you to the nearest dentist who can evaluate your situation and recommend the best fix for it.

When you break off a tooth, it’s best to capture the broken piece if you can find it and take it in with you to your dentist. In some cases, the dentist might be able to piece together the broken pieces of tooth. However, in instances in which this isn’t possible, then she might have to reconstruct the tooth from porcelain resin or other synthetic materials that are designed to have the appearance and function of the natural tooth. Alternatively, some dentists might recommend placing a protective crown over the tooth to not only restore the tooth’s aesthetic appearance and function, but to also protect the pulp and tooth from further damage. Regardless of the method that the dentist suggests using to assuage the damage to the broken tooth, we can direct you to one that can get you started on the process.

Lost Tooth

Lost Tooth Perhaps you were playing a sport, had a tooth knocked and can't find it, or maybe your lost your tooth another way. Regardless, when you have a lost tooth, you might require dental assistance in restoring your cosmetic appearance. The specific type of dentist that you end up going to for the resolution can vary depending upon whether you decide to get a dental bridge, implant or other restorative solution for your lost tooth. No matter what type of resolution you're looking for, though, 24 Hourly Dentists can help you find a dentist who offers it.

Although losing your teeth is a normal part of the development process when you’re a child, it can be distressing to lose a tooth as an adult. Children lose their baby teeth to prepare the for the permanent teeth that are lying just beneath the surface of the gum and are ready to emerge. However, past the permanent teeth, your body doesn’t make another set of teeth, which means that if you happen to lose a permanent tooth, then that tooth is simply lost.

In the olden days, if you lost a tooth, you simply had to deal with the unfortunate nature of the situation. That's not the case any more. Although losing a tooth that’s located in the side or back of your mouth might not prove to a be a huge issue, losing one of the front of your mouth can be since the loss of the tooth will be much more noticeable when you eat, speak, smile and otherwise use your mouth. Thanks to all the advances that have been made in modern science, there’s plenty of options out there for lost tooth replacement, and a dentist can evaluate your dental situation and advise you on your options. While a dental implant might be ideal for some patients since it is the most permanent and natural-feeling solution to a lost tooth, it might not be ideal for others who don’t have any bone structure in their gums to support the dental implant. For such patients, dental bridges or partial plates might be most appropriate. We can help you find a dentist who can help you explore your options.

Extraction

Extraction Although people go to the dentist in hopes of preventing the loss of their teeth, in some situations, it's absolutely necessary for a tooth to be extracted. Wisdom teeth removal are now a very common practice. Every year thousands are having their wisdom teeth removed. The reason, the human mouth has been evolving and becoming smaller and wisdom teeth as a result are getting impacted creating dental issues.

However, there are various other reasons why you might find yourself in need of removing remove a tooth.

1) Tooth has become decayed and needs to be removed in order to keep it from infecting your gum line.
2) Tooth is broken and can not be effectively repaired.
3) Not enough room

Regardless of the reason why you need a tooth extracted, losing a permanent tooth is a much different experience than that of losing a tooth in childhood. Permanent teeth aren’t meant to be lost, and, therefore, they usually don’t become loose enough on their own for you to be able to pull them yourself like you did your baby teeth. Instead, in order to minimize pain and damage to your mouth, you’ll probably want to entrust the tooth extraction process of a permanent tooth to a dental professional.

No matter whether or not your tooth extraction is an emergency, we can help you find the most appropriate type of dentist for your issue. If your tooth is giving you an immense amount of pain and needs to be extracted right away, then an emergency or walk in dentist might be the best type of dentist for you to go to. However, if you need to have an extra tooth extracted, and the situation isn’t necessarily an emergency, then you might be able to go to a dentist who requires you to set up and appointment. At 24 Hourly Dentists, we can help you find an oral surgeon or 24 hour emergency dentist that can help and determine the best method for extracting your tooth.

Implant

Implant If you're missing teeth and don't want to have to deal with having to remove and clean partial plates and dentures, then dental implants might be the best solution for you. Dental implants not only look and feel like your real teeth, but they function just like them too so that nobody will ever know that you even have false teeth when you get them. When you're in need of an oral surgeon or other dental professionals who can implant dental studs into your mouth, we can help you find them.

While missing teeth in the back of your mouth aren’t that noticeable and might not be a big deal to you, missing teeth in the front of your mouth are definitely noticeable and might be a source of embarrassment and distress for you. Fortunately, there are many ways to fix the look of missing teeth and restore the appearance of a full smile. One of the most innovative ways to restore the look and function of a natural tooth is via a dental implant.

Dental implant is a procedure where an implant is placed into the gum line to take the place of a missing tooth. The actual implant is a metal stud over which a crown is later placed. Although the metal stud serves as the root of the tooth, the crown is what gives it its tooth-like appearance. With a dental implant, you can go about your life as normal without having to deal with the maintenance that you might have to deal with if you select from other types of missing tooth replacement methods. However, because dental implants are the most permanent and life-like solution, they oftentimes have the most intense type of procedure to get.

When you get a dental implant, you have to undergo an oral surgery, during which time the implant is planted into the gums, and then a temporary crown is placed upon it for appearance’s sake. After the stud is initially implanted into the gums, then there is a healing process that usually lasts approximately six months. As the gums heal and accept the stud, the temporary crown is eventually removed and replaced with a permanent one that is sealed. You’ll most likely need to see an oral surgeon about getting dental implants, and we would be happy to help you find one.

Payment Options With all the changes to the healthcare system, it has made it so that there have been many changes in dental care. Many people no longer have dental insurance.

With the rates of insurance skyrocketing, more and more people are finding themselves unable or unwilling to pay for the increased price of dental coverage.

Cash or Check

Cash or Check Some dentists allow you to pay for their services via cash or check. If this is your preferred payment option when you're uninsured, then we can certainly help you find dentists who accept that type of payment methods. Most dentist will at least accept upfront cash payments even if they don't accept checks. Moreover, some even offer incentives and discounts on their services, providing you a better value, if you do choose to pay via cash.

No matter whether you have dental coverage or not, cash is a payment option that is always accepted. Just about every type of business will accept a cash payment since this means that they get their payment upfront and immediately. Although a check is the equivalent of cash, not every business will accept payment via check. There are numerous reasons for this. Among the most predominant are that a) payment via check isn’t as instantaneous as payment via cash, b) a check is subject to bouncing if the writer of the check doesn’t have enough money in his or her account to cover the amount of the charge and c) because checks are becoming more obsolete.

Although some dentists will still accept personal checks as a form of payment, others tend to err away from the practice in favor of cash and other payment options. Regardless of whether you prefer to pay for your dental services via cash or check, we can help.

Credit Card

If you’re one of the many people who prefers to pay with plastic instead of paper, then we can help you find a dentist who’s willing to accept that type of payment method. Finding a dentist who accepts credit card payments isn’t too difficult. However, finding one who accepts your particular type of credit card can sometimes prove a bit more difficult, depending upon the type of credit card that you wish to pay with. Almost every business that accepts credit cards will accept Visa and Mastercard credit cards, however, not all are willing to accept Discover and American Express (AMEX). To make sure that your credit card will be accepted in exchanged for dental services rendered, it’s best to check beforehand.

If the payment options your new dentists accepts are important to you, be sure to express that when you speak to the operator and they will be sure to take them into account in their referral.

Payment Plans
