Common Dental Emergencies
- Emergency toothaches: If you have severe pain in your tooth or jaw that is interfering with your daily activities or keeping you up at night, you should come in right away. A toothache that severe could be an indication of an oral infection or severe tooth decay. Our team will work to provide relief from the pain and determine the cause of the problem.
- Chipped or broken teeth: If you have chipped a tooth or have a fracture in your tooth that is causing pain or discomfort, you should come in right away to have it checked out. Left untreated, these issues can worsen or make it more difficult to repair the fracture or chip.
- Lost teeth: If you get a tooth knocked out while playing sports or after a fall, you should come into our office right away. Immediate attention is key to preserving and protecting the lost tooth, ideally getting it reattached right away.
If you’re uncertain whether you’re facing a dental emergency, feel free to call our office. We’ll talk with you about what symptoms you’re experiencing and whether you should come in for an appointment the same day.
