Having a dental emergency is no fun and it is important you seek treatment when you experience any dental discomfort.

Common Dental Emergencies:

A. Teeth the Crack

Sometimes when you have a large filling it weakens the surrounding tooth structure over time, and teeth crack. Depending on how bad the crack is you may either need a crown or replacement filling

B. Abcess

Untreated large cavities can lead to a dental infection. Signs of infection involve a small fluctuant swelling on the outer gums, or general swelling on the outer cheek area and/or fever. It is important to contact your dentist right away.

C. Wisdom Tooth

Sometimes wisdom teeth become symptomatic (start causing pain). If they are impacted it is more likely for them to flare up.

D. Large Cavities

Another common dental emergency involves cavities. Sometimes cavities do not hurt. When they get large enough or start causing breakage of tooth they can lead to pain

E. Gums

When you have lots of build up around your teeth your gums react to the bacteria by becoming inflamed and bleeding. This can cause discomfort and is a common reason people come in.

DON’T WAIT

If you wait too long the necessary treatment may be more complex then what would be needed had you sought attention right away.
