What is a dental emergency?
Emergency dental care might be required for a wide variety of reasons. Some common dental emergencies that we treat include:
- Severe tooth pain that is not helped by over-the-counter pain medication
- Broken or chipped tooth
- Injury to a tooth due to sports or accidents, including loose or knocked-out teeth
- Bleeding in the gums or other soft tissues
- Loose or missing dental restorations, such as a crown or filling
If you are in doubt, don’t hesitate to call!
At Best Smiles, no dental issue is too small. Our friendly team will talk with you about your symptoms to help determine how urgently you need to be seen by the dentist. Some issues, such as dental abscesses, need to be treated as quickly as possible to prevent the further spread of infection or prevent permanent loss or damage to a tooth. When you call, we will also provide you with guidance on what to do in the time before you come into the office. For example, did you know it is possible to save a knocked-out tooth if it is properly stored and treated rapidly? We will give you the information you need to help ensure the best possible outcome.
