Is Your Case a Dental Emergency?

If your case is a dental emergency, you need immediate assistance to alleviate the symptoms. Dental emergencies are usually associated with large amounts of pain and discomfort for patients, and some common dental emergencies include:

  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth due to trauma
  • Infections in the teeth or gums 
  • A lost filling or crown
  • Abscesses
  • Unusual pain and bleeding after a tooth extraction

While some dental emergencies happen during everyday activities like sports or jobs demanding manual labor, patients may prevent others with good upkeep of their oral hygiene.
