HOW DO YOU KNOW IT’S A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
How do you know it’s a dental emergency? This might seem like a silly question, but actually, it’s not.
While there’s no one perfect example, here are some guidelines for knowing when you need to act quickly.
- You are experiencing consistent pain that is increasing quickly in intensity. For example, you have a toothache, which might be the result of an abscess and this is causing you intense nerve pain.
- You (or your child) have been playing a contact sport of some kind and have had a tooth knocked out. Place your tooth back in its correct position as soon as you can (ideally within an hour) or place the tooth in milk. Then get in contact with us! We will do our very best to administer treatment to you as quickly as possible.
- You have a tooth that has been broken or cracked. It is likely that this kind of emergency will require some form of cosmetic treatment.
