Emergency Care for Your Smile
Sticking to good hygiene principles and a schedule of preventive dental care can help you avoid most common dental issues. However, they don’t guarantee that you’ll never experience a dental emergency and require treatment to restore your smile. If you have an emergency, then call our office and schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Even if you aren’t in extreme discomfort, hesitating to seek treatment could make the problem worse and require more extensive treatment to address.
When Is It an Emergency?
Some dental emergencies are obvious, such as accidental trauma to one or more of your teeth. Yet, sometimes, you might not realize that a dental problem is an emergency. Typically, a dental emergency entails:
- Sudden, severe pain in or around the tooth
- Bleeding around one or more teeth
- The appearance of a crack or fracture
- Severe pain in your jaw joints or muscles
- A knocked-out (avulsed) tooth
- A tooth that’s been knocked loose within its socket
- And more
