Some emergencies can be prevented, but unfortunately, some emergencies just happen! But you can be prepared by knowing what to do and where you’ll go if and when you experience one.
What Is a Dental Emergency?
If you think you are experiencing a dental emergency, the first thing to do is not panic. Remaining calm will allow you to navigate an emergency situation with ease. Let us know if you experience any of the following problems:
- Severe pain and swelling
- Uncontrollable bleeding
- A chipped, broken, or knocked-out tooth
- Lost or broken crown, bridge, filling, or dentures
- Complications from a recent dental procedure
And if you aren’t sure if what you’re experiencing is a dental emergency, contact us anyway. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
