Emergency Dentist Long Beach, CA
The number of emergency room visits for dental pain is rising steadily each year, constituting between 1.15% and 2.5% of all emergency room visits, according to the Journal of Public Health Dentistry. Yet while these figures may not seem like much, these visits cost taxpayers, hospitals, and the government about $2 billion per year – and more often than not, they take the biggest bite out of the patient’s wallet. Additionally, most hospitals don’t have the facilities or staff to provide comprehensive dental care, so even if you receive antibiotics or medication to relieve pain symptoms, the root problem causing it could still persist. If you don’t receive specialized treatment, you might end up making repeated visits for the same condition – if not a worse one.
