How do you approach a dentist in an emergency?
If you experience a persistent toothache or dental injury, it’s important to be able to rely on your local dentist for an oral emergency appointment. Whether you have a broken tooth, an infection, or severe pain, emergency dental services can prevent additional damage.
A problem many patients face is how and when to approach a dentist in an emergency.
If you are experiencing severe dental pain, cannot use your mouth properly or have undergone trauma that has greatly altered the natural appearance of your teeth, it’s best to call your dentist right away and explain to them the situation. They will then determine how soon you need to visit the clinic and book you in for an emergency dentist appointment.
Common dental emergencies include:
- Missing crowns or fillings
- Cracked, chipped or broken teeth
- Knocked out teeth
- Broken dentures
- Soft tissue injuries
