What Smiles Can Do For You
What Is A Dental Emergency?
There are a few dental issues that can qualify as an emergency. The biggest indicator of a dental emergency is severe pain in the gums or teeth. Pain is subjective to the individual, so if it feels to you like an emergency, calling us costs nothing.
- Gums that continue to bleed
- Jaw injuries, that include dislocation or possible fractures
- Severe sensitivity of the tooth
- A persistent throbbing toothache
Knocked-out teeth also qualify as an emergency, if you are wondering what to do in emergency situations such as knocked-out teeth, please read our blog on Common Dental Emergencies.
Our emergency clinic never closes, it’s open every day of the year.
If you have a knocked-out tooth or teeth, it can potentially be reattached to the bone if you can get to one of our state-of-the-art emergency clinics within half an hour to an hour.
Exposed tissue can become infected. It’s of utmost importance that a tooth with a broken or lost filling gets repairs immediately.
If a tooth is broken or fractured it can become very painful if it isn’t already, get the tooth repaired now.
If you have noticeable gum pain please come get it checked out, especially if it’s persistent, or worsens over time.
