At Brookside Dental Care, we offer emergency dental services to help you get through any serious dental concerns easily. If you are unsure if your dental concern classifies as an emergency, we will give you some general guidelines that can help you determine whether or not your oral issue requires emergency care.
To start, there are a few questions you should ask yourself to determine if you need emergency dental care or not. These include:
- Are you in severe pain?
- Is your mouth bleeding?
- Have you lost a tooth?
- Do you have a loose tooth?
- Do you have an infection?
Answering yes to any of these questions should raise concern and may mean you need emergency care. Severe pain and bleeding in the mouth are signs of a dental emergency and may require immediate treatment. If you have lost a tooth, no matter how, the faster you get to an emergency dentist, like the ones at Brookside Dental Care, the better your chances are of saving the tooth. Another sign you need to visit the dentist is if any of your teeth are loose. Adults do not get loose teeth and if any of your teeth are loose, it may mean there is a more serious problem.
Let’s take a look at some of these instances more closely as well as other problems that may require emergency dental care. Read on for more information!
