Posted on 4/10/2019 by Clair
If you're dealing with a dental problem and you're unsure of whether or not it is a dental emergency, there are some things to keep in mind.
You might not want to call our office and bother us regarding the problem you're having, but if you're unsure of what is happening and you're worried, the best thing to do is to give us a call.
However, if you want to know more about what we consider a dental emergency, then here is more information about whether or not you're experiencing one and if it is time to give us a call for it.
Is That Problem a Dental Emergency?
There are three things to keep in mind when you're wondering if you have a dental emergency. Are you in extreme pain that you cannot control or make go away? Do you have ongoing tissue bleeding that does not stop, no matter what you do? Are you having an issue where you need immediate attention in order to save a tooth?
If you have any one of these three, then it might be time to consider speaking with our dentist regarding the work we can do for you. You need to make sure that you seek out help when there is an issue, sooner rather than later. Any sort of infection inside the mouth can be life-threatening which means you need to call our office right away so this is something that can be taken care of.
