How Do You Know If Your Dental Problems Constitute An Emergency?
Many times people who have dental issues contact the office to see if their problem requires immediate assistance. Although there are varying degrees of dental emergencies, no dentist would ever turn a patient away when they need help. In order to achieve the best dental care for all so the dentist isn’t bogged down with non-emergencies, it is best that you know what is important and what can wait for a future appointment.
A fractured tooth because of the pain and swelling can constitute an emergency. In some cases the tooth is only chipped slightly, so in that case you could wait to have it looked at. However, if the pain is too great a fractured tooth should be looked at right away to help prevent future problems.
Any time there is tremendous pain in your mouth it is definitely cause for concern. Most likely you have an infection that must be looked at right away by a trained professional. An infection can spread to other parts of the body if not caught in time, so it is best that you schedule an immediate appointment.
A tooth that is knocked out is very important to get checked out by a dentist. Make sure you save the tooth if possible, so it can replanted back into the mouth. Waiting for an appointment when you’re tooth gets knocked could result in an infection.
If you have what looks like to be an abscessed tooth, you should immediately make a dentist appointment. You can tell the tooth is abscessed when you see swelling, pus and discoloration of the tooth. The problem here of course is an infection that can get very bad very quickly. This condition should be cause for concern, and have it looked at right away.
If you are still unsure whether or not you have a dental emergency, it always pays to be on the safe side. Contact your local dental professional to get their opinion on what you should do. Just remember to be on top of the situation, otherwise something that doesn’t seem like an emergency can quickly turn into one.
