From sudden unexplained toothaches and tooth pain to having a tooth knocked out, our team of compassionate dental staff is trained in handling an array of dental emergencies so that we can effectively address your most immediate dental concerns.
What is considered a dental emergency?
Understanding the difference between a dental emergency and a non-dental emergency can help you know whether or not you may need to make an immediate trip to the dentist. While some situations, such as a knocked out tooth, present themselves as more obvious dental emergencies, other situations, such as a cavity or tooth infection, may not feel so urgent in its beginning stages. But, when it comes to your teeth, what may seem like minor pain at first can soon turn into a medical emergency if left untreated. That’s why it’s important to see your dentist as soon as you notice any potential dental concerns, including:
- Dental trauma or accident
- Swollen gums around the tooth/teeth
- Bleeding gums
- Chipped or broken tooth/teeth
- Knocked-out tooth/teeth
- Partially dislodged tooth/teeth
- Lost filling or dental crown falls off
- Getting something stuck between two teeth
If you experience any of the above concerns or any signs of dental pain, you may need to set up an appointment with your dentist immediately. Doing so can help save your tooth or teeth, as well as prevent future complications.
