Dental emergencies can be hard to identify. If any problems arise, it’s important to keep calm and contact a professional who can help identify the problem.
Some signs you may require emergency dental assistance:
- You lose a tooth
- Losing a crown or filling
- Cracked or Chipped Teeth
- Numbness in the gums, face or jaw
- Severe and persistent toothache
- Swelling of the jaw, face or gums
- Bleeding of the mouth and gums
The above can be an indicator of something more serious. If left untreated, these issues can worsen and become an urgent health problem. If you experience any issues to the mouth, teeth and gums, it’s a rule of thumb to give your dentist a call just to make sure.
If your symptoms worsen or they are severe, you may need to seek medical attention. Any serious injury to the face, jaw and mouth, including fractures, dislocations, injury, cuts or lacerations – please seek emergency medical assistance.
Usually, dental problems can wait until your next scheduled appointment with your dentist. However, sometimes more urgent and serious issues can arise. Dental emergencies can happen. If you’re unsure whether your situation requires emergency dental, it might be good to get in touch for a professional opinion.
If you do visit the emergency room, please make a follow up appointment with your dentist when it’s convenient.
