It’s not always clear whether or not an injury or affliction is truly an emergency, which is why we always recommend calling first. However, there are a few common types of dental emergencies that almost always require immediate or same-day dental care. These include:
In many cases, patients will assume that the best thing to do is visit the closest urgent care or emergency room for treatment. If the problem is tooth, gum, or jaw-related however, the emergency room may not be able to do much except offer painkillers and refer you to an emergency dentist. Dental practices that offer emergency care have the tools and expertise required to do things like reattach knocked out teeth and perform emergency root canals, areas that emergency room doctors typically have no knowledge or experience in. Should you find yourself in a situation that requires emergency dental care, our team will be happy to assist.
