WHAT ARE DENTAL EMERGENCIES?
Often, dental emergencies such as pain, infection, swelling, or tooth trauma call for immediate attention. Dental trauma can result from sports injuries, falls, violence, and automobile collisions. After trauma to your teeth, it is crucial to visit a dentist immediately.
Tooth pain should not be ignored, as it can indicate a serious problem such as infection. Infections left untreated can be life-threatening. There are different types of toothaches, depending on the underlying cause. Our staff will help determine the cause of your pain and discuss your options for treatment. You can be certain that your oral and overall health are at the center of recommendations for treatment. Facial swelling is also a serious dental emergency. Swelling in the mouth can indicate infection, cancer, cysts, or trauma, all of which require immediate attention.
If our diagnosis of your condition ever calls for treatment outside of our office, we work with excellent groups of specialists for referrals.
