Our office is staffed and equipped to handle all kinds of dental emergencies. Some examples of dental emergencies include:
- A broken or missing tooth
- An abscessed tooth
- Bone Pus
- Gum abscesses
- Severe pain in the mouth
- A broken jaw
- A filling or a crown falls out
- Inflammation surrounding the wisdom teeth
Simply put, dental emergencies are any kind of situation where a tooth needs to be saved, bleeding of the soft tissue in the mouth needs to be stopped, or pain needs to be addressed. There can be many causes of a dental emergency, including a physical altercation, an accident of some kind, or biting down on something that causes a problem with a tooth. Unfortunately, these kinds of things can’t be scheduled and can happen at the most inopportune time. But no matter what kind of dental emergency or how it happened, it’s important to get treated right away – even if these situations happen after hours.
What to do when you have a dental emergency?
Some types of pain may be an indication of an infection that can get worse without immediate treatment. If the infection is severe enough or there is an abscess in the mouth, it can even be life-threatening. If the pain is severe, our office can prescribe analgesics until the patient can be seen during normal office hours. Dental emergencies can impair certain day-to-day activities such as eating and speaking, and are best treated as soon as possible.
