A dental emergency can be both worrisome and painful. At Dentalcare West, our friendly, understanding staff will provide you with the very best care in comfortable, safe environment.
If you're not sure if a dental problem is an emergency, we offer this advice – if it hurts, it's an emergency. Even if your injury seems small, it may be compromising the health of living tissues inside the teeth. Quick treatment improves the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth, and consequently, damaged nerves or blood vessels. If you ignore dental pain or a dental injury, you're taking a chance, because there is also a risk of getting an infection, which can become life threatening.
Most dental emergencies usually involve relief of acute pain, emergency root canal treatment or an extraction. In some circumstances, these emergencies may involve:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- A knocked out tooth
- Abscesses and infections causing swelling
- Lost crowns and veneers
- Broken dentures or partials
- Wisdom teeth
