The Cincy area is home to ardent sports fans, famed chili, and lots of options for health care, including dental partners. University Dental is proud to call so many patients in the Dayton-Cincinnati-Middletown metro “family.” For years, we have been committed to the idea that all patients, regardless of socioeconomic status and budget, deserve outstanding care. We are also committed to urgent dental care from our Middletown, Ohio office in more than name only.
Whereas other dentists may advertise “emergency dental services,” Drs Mamta Kori, Scott Everhart, and Farhad Jamshidi have made themselves truly accessible to their patients. They have built additional time into the structure of their schedules. So, they can visit with you the same day in the event of a dental injury or another type of oral health emergency. Often, they’re able to resolve the problem that has led to your pain, bleeding, and damaged tooth within the same visit; however, there may be situations where the University Dental crew must clear infections with antibiotics first before moving forward with restorative treatments for the true resolution of your symptoms (rather than just symptom relief). Take the antibiotics exactly as directed by your dentist.
Trust in a dentist’s specialized expertise
No health care professional is better equipped to treat oral conditions than a dentist or dental specialist. Patients who haven’t visited the dentist for some time may find themselves at Atrium’s emergency room or other hospitals throughout the area. In the present environment, the University Dental team is doing its part to reduce the burden on hospital and medical center emergency rooms. Likewise, ER staff are not trained specifically in oral treatments that provide lasting relief and get you back on the road to health.
Drs Kori, Everhart, and Jamshidi always encourage you to call (855) 908 3676 when you suspect there is a problem with your mouth. Ideally, we visit with patients before toothaches arise that interfere with sleep, work, school, and comfortable eating. Symptoms associated with gum and dental disease are slow to develop. By the time you are in pain or experience bleeding on your toothbrush or floss, gum disease or tooth decay has progressed. You may need restorative treatment such as fillings, crowns, root canal therapy, or even prompt extraction.
Cost is not a barrier at University Dental
Generally, restorative procedures are more expensive than preventive services. University Dental accepts a wide range of insurance, including Medicaid. Often, services such as routine cleanings and examinations are covered 100% by insurance plans. That means no money out of your pocket. In general, restorative treatments are only partially covered by insurance plans.
Request an Appointment
All that said, University Dental never wants cost concerns to stand in the way of your getting the right care to not only resolve pain, but to also help you lead a healthier life, and to support your overall well-being. Our dentists and staff are with you through every step of your oral health journey. And, remember: If it’s a concern to you, it’s a concern to us. Just a few of the symptoms that might signify the need for emergency care include:
- A knocked-out or avulsed tooth (baby teeth also matter!)
- A broken or cracked tooth
- Loose teeth
- Swelling along the jaw and mouth
- Wounds to the gums and oral soft tissues
- Radiating, severe, and/or persistent pain
- Chronic bad breath
- Foul taste in the mouth
- Intense pain following an extraction (dry socket)
Also, if infections are allowed to progress without treatment, they can become systemic and spread to other areas of your body. This is a medical emergency. You will need treatment at the ER. We know this sounds scary. But there are many opportunities to avoid the “worst”. Schedule your appointment at University Dental today. We are a phone call away at (855) 908 3676 or fill in the “Appointment Request” on this website.
