Types of emergency dental services
Many patients are unsure of whether their dental issue warrants an emergency trip to the dentist. Some of the most common dental emergencies that we see include:
- Chipped, broken, or fractured tooth
- Loose or completely knocked out tooth
- Tooth or gum pain
- Loose or missing dental restoration, such as a crown or bridge
- Facial swelling
- Bitten tongue
- Bleeding in the mouth
If you are in doubt, just call us! We will talk with you about your symptoms and give you advice on how to take care of your dental issue until you are able to come in to see us. For example, if you have a tooth that has been completely knocked out, we might be able to save it if you take specific steps to preserve the tooth. The sooner you call us, the better your chances of saving your natural tooth and bypassing the costly and time-consuming tooth replacement process. Conversely, it is important to avoid doing some things in certain situations, such as placing an aspirin next to a painful tooth, to help minimize the chance of excessive bleeding. Calling us quickly to talk about the best approach for your specific situation can help prevent further damage or injury and reduce unnecessarily prolonged pain and suffering.
