Many of our patients wonder what constitutes a dental emergency and worry that the symptoms they are experiencing aren’t worthy of emergency dental care. The following is a list of reasons why you or your child should seek emergency dentistry:
- Severe toothaches that are long-lasting
- A lost dental restoration, such as a crown or filling
- Soft tissue damage in the mouth
- Cracking of the tooth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- The tooth has been partially or fully knocked out
If your child has experienced bodily trauma in addition to dental trauma, seek emergency medical care first by calling 911 or visiting an emergency room. Life threatening emergencies need to be cared for before seeking dental care, even if damage has occurred to the teeth and the body.
For questions about emergency dentistry and scheduling, please call our office to see our dentist. We want you to get relief as soon as possible.
