What is a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can vary, however some key indications include:

  • Trauma that breaks or knocks out a tooth
  • Extreme pain
  • Unusual swelling
  • Excessive bleeding after a dental procedure

If you aren’t sure if it’s an emergency, call and ask. One of our doctors will discuss the situation and determine if you should come in immediately or wait until the next day.

Prevention is Key

While accidents happen, there are ways to prevent needing emergency care. First, see us regularly. Many patients that end up in the ER or at our office with an emergency have let a dental problem like a cavity or infection go on too long without professional help. Then, they get to the point where the pain is too much to tolerate and it becomes an emergency. Avoid this by keeping up on your regular appointments.

We also see a fair amount of kids who get teeth broken or knocked out during sports. To help protect your child’s teeth, get them a mouthguard. We provide them here, or go to any local sporting goods store to find one.
