How To Determine A Dental Emergency
Emergency dental care is different from emergency medical care. You don’t have to believe you’re in immediate danger to call us. Tooth pain and discomfort are reason enough! If you’re experiencing bleeding that will not stop or you’re concerned about your health and safety, please visit your closest emergency room first.
You may be tempted to dismiss a toothache as a problem to address in the future, perhaps during your next dental exam. But it could be a symptom of a problem that requires attention now, such as:
- Cavities from tooth decay
- Damaged fillings
- A tooth fracture
- Gum disease
- An abscessed tooth
Mouth pain can also be a symptom of teeth grinding or a misaligned bite. The sooner we are able to diagnose these problems, the quicker we can develop a treatment plan to get you out of pain!
