Beaumont dentist, Dr. Helene Suh, provides emergency care for those urgent and unplanned dental mishaps at the Beaumont Smile Center.
BEAUMONT, TX, September 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Accidents happen. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than half a million people go to the emergency room for dental conditions every year. The most recent research reveals that in 2009, a remarkable 936, 482 patients went to U.S. hospitals with a dental condition listed as their first complaint.
"Dental emergencies can be as scary as any other medical emergency for patients," said Dr. Helene Suh, Beaumont dentist. "General medical facilities are able to contain such emergencies until patients can visit their regular dentist. If you lost a tooth in an accident, for example, a general facility will not perform the necessary procedures to restore your smile."
For this reason, Beaumont Smile Center provides emergency dental services to their patients. "We can contain and treat dental conditions requiring immediate care. However, if patients are having trouble breathing due to an allergic reaction, they should go to the emergency room immediately."
Emergencies are unplanned and happen at the most inconvenient times. They can happen in the middle of the night or on a holiday, which is why Beaumont Smile Center has an emergency message system at 409-893-2084. Messages are checked frequently. For emergencies during regular business hours, patients are encouraged to call the general office number at 409-892-2600.
Some dental conditions may seem like emergencies but can be contained at home. In these instances, advice on how to contain the problem may be given over the phone. Every case is different, and Dr. Helene Suh, Beaumont emergency dentist, is committed to providing the necessary care and information to all of her patients for a speedy recovery. "This is my community," said Dr. Suh. "I want to give the same quality urgent care to families that I would want for my own."
Dr. Helene Suh is a skilled general dentist, trained to perform routine procedures on adults and children. For more information about emergency and general services at Beaumont Smile Center, patients can visit the website at http://beaumontsmilecenter.com or contact the office at 409-892-2600.
