Dental emergencies can happen to anyone at any time. Dental emergencies should be addressed and treated as soon as possible. If dental emergencies are left untreated, they could lead to a more complex problem in the future. Dr. Melvin Benson at Integrated Dental Arts understands that dental emergencies can be inconvenient and painful and will work with you to get you to the office fast, helping you in your time of need.
What qualifies as a dental emergency?
Oftentimes, people are not sure what classifies a dental emergency and what does not. Depending on the severity of these injuries, some can wait until normal operating hours. Dr. Benson recommends that you call as soon as possible to get an opinion on how to handle the situation. It is important that dental emergencies are handled in a timely fashion to help ensure a successful solution.
Visiting for a preventive care visit can help prevent dental emergencies. It is possible to spot signs of an upcoming dental emergency before you do. Regular dental visits can save you time and pain in the long run. A few examples of dental emergencies are:
- An injured or swollen jaw
- A persistent toothache
- Loose or lost permanent teeth
- Nonstop bleeding from tooth loss
- Painful swelling
- Broken tooth
- Lost dental filling, crown, or bridge
Same day dentistry
