Dental emergencies can occur at any time and without warning. While it can be hard to prepare for every eventuality, it is important to know the basics of what to look for and what your first steps should be.
Here are some examples of dental emergencies:
If you are experiencing any of the above, your condition may be an emergency, and you should be seen by a dentist immediately. Please call us and be sure to let us know the specifics such as how it happened, what level pain you are experiencing, if you have allergies, and/or if you have had previous dental work.
It is important to remember that dental emergencies that are ignored or are put off can get worse and worse. The earlier they are treated, the better it is for the tooth and for you. If you are unsure if you are having an emergency or not, it is safest to give us a call so we can speak to you about it. Never hesitate to give us a call since we can best help you identify what the issue is and if it warrants an emergency visit.
