Types of Dental Emergencies That We Treat
Whether you’ve bumped your mouth during a soccer game or broken a tooth off by opening something with your teeth, we’re always prepared to help. Every dental emergency is unique in the cause, but demands the same attentive care. We’ll do everything possible to get you out of pain as quickly as we can.
Some of the types of dental emergencies that we frequently see include:
• Abscessed teeth
• Broken fillings, crowns, bridges, or dentures
• Knocked out or broken teeth
• Swollen gums or jaws
• Painful or bleeding gums
How to Prevent a Dental Emergency
Did you know that most types of dental emergencies are preventable? With routine exams and X-rays, we can pinpoint problems when they’re smaller, easier, and more affordable to treat. In most cases, we recommend seeing a dentist every six months to make sure your smile is as healthy as possible.
For kids or adults involved in athletics, consider getting a custom mouthguard made. Not only will it fit better than anything you can buy at a drug store, but it may even reduce the risk of concussions.
