What are Common Dental Emergencies?
Knowing when to call the dentist is important, and if you have a dental emergency you should get in touch with your dentist right away. Our practice offers same or next day appointments to address any emergency situations for our patients. We want our patients to feel comfortable calling us in an emergency situation.
There are signs or symptoms that may tell you there is a dental emergency. Typically, if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort that is a big indicator something may be wrong. If an emergency is not addressed, additional more complicated problems may arise. The quicker you contact us, the faster we can get you in to be seen and help you recover.
Dental emergencies include any problems that require immediate attention. Examples of dental emergencies include saving a tooth, infections, or alleviating pain. Infections are serious, can be life-threatening, and should be addressed right away. One of the most common dental emergencies patients face is a tooth ache. This can be caused by a cavity, and should be addressed as soon as possible.
