Signs You Have a Dental Emergency


Posted on 2/20/2019 by Mark Bieber
Signs You Have a Dental EmergencyMost of us hope to keep a healthy, brilliant smile for years to come, and carefully guard our teeth from injury and illness.

However, accidents and mistakes do happen, and if you suspect you may have just experienced one, please reach out to us immediately. Here are some of the more common signs of a dental emergency, you should be aware of.

Injury or Trauma

If you've ever taken an injury to the mouth, whether from a playful child accidentally bopping you in the jaw years ago or just biting down too hard on a candy right now, you should be on the lookout for numbness, swelling, inflammation and redness, or flares of pain. All of these indicate a more serious issue than presented, and could be signs of cracks or chips, loosened teeth, damage to your gums, or even partial or full avulsion (removal of the tooth.)

Illness and Disease

Many of the symptoms are superficially similar but have drastically different outcomes from an injury. In addition to the above, if you notice bleeding or pus from your gums, holes in your teeth, wiggly teeth that don't seat properly, or throbbing aches, and injury has been ruled out, you should seek our immediate advice and treatment for what may be an underlying gum or tooth disease.

If left untreated, not only can this permanently harm or even kill the tooth involved, but the illness can then spread to other, healthier teeth, renewing the cycle of pain and suffering until that tooth is ruined, and then spreading once more to other teeth.

Do not delay in reaching out to us immediately if you suspect that you may be experiencing a dental emergency. Our professional staff can help detect, diagnose, and treat your tooth issues, and it is better to be seen now than to wait until the problems worsen.

Respected As A Patient



I continue to be impressed with every aspect of dental care and service at your office. Everyone is wonderful and makes me feel important, valued, and respected as a patient; everything is explained in detail.
