More About Emergencies

So, how do you know you need emergency dental care? Some common reasons you should make a dental appointment right away include:

  • An obvious, visible injury to your teeth, jaws, or face
  • A tooth that has been displaced or knocked out completely
  • Tooth pain that continues throughout the day and doesn’t go away
  • Tooth pain when you eat or drink hot or cold foods or beverages
  • Tooth pain from a missing filling or decayed tooth

There are some easy ways you and your family can prevent a dental emergency. If you or your children play contact sports, always wear protective mouthguards (which your dentist can easily provide). Also, remember to always have everyone wear their seatbelts to prevent traumatic injury in case you are in a car accident.

Additionally, one of the easiest ways you can prevent a dental emergency is to visit your dentist for a thorough dental exam and x-rays once each year. When you come in regularly, your dentist can diagnose and treat dental issues early, before they have a chance to become major dental problems. These regular dental visits help you and your family avoid sudden, painful dental emergencies!
