Recognizing A Dental Emergency

When it comes to teeth and oral health, if it hurts, it’s an emergency. That’s because dental pain can actually be a sign of a much more serious issue. By seeing us right away, we can assess the problem and fix any issue before it gets worse.

Here are some of the more common dental emergencies we treat:

  • A severe toothache that won’t go away
  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Gum injuries

Accidents happen. But with a little foresight, you can be prepared. For example, if your child likes to stay active, a custom athletic mouthguard can protect their mouth from injury.
