Some dental problems can wait until you are able to book a regular appointment with your dentist. However, emergency dental problems can occur at any time. When you are dealing with dental pain, you must be prepared to know what to do. Whether you crack a tooth, lose a tooth, you think you have an infection, or you have had an accident that damaged the inside of your mouth, it is important to assess the situation and decide on the best action to take. Here is a closer look at what you should do if you end up dealing with emergency dental problems.

What is an Emergency?

First, you may be wondering what is really considered an emergency dental problem. Usually it is safe to say it is an emergency if you are dealing with any dental pain. Pain is not normal and it is a warning that something is wrong. If anything is causing oral pain, it is best to treat it like an emergency. Accidents that involve the teeth or mouth are emergencies. Knocking out a tooth, cracking or breaking a tooth, and tooth infections are all emergencies that require emergency dental treatment as quickly as possible.

Steps to Take

If you believe you have an emergency dental problem, you need to start out by calling your dentist’s office. Healthy Smiles offers emergency services for patients that have a dental emergency. We will work you into our schedule. If it is after hours, you still should call your dentist.
