How to Know If You Need Emergency Dental Treatment
Several key indicators point toward emergency dental treatment. The first, and perhaps most obvious, is if you’ve been injured and your mouth has taken a hit. Even if your teeth are intact above the gumline, damage may have occurred inside the gums down to the root that will need to be investigated with x-ray films.
If you have lost a filling or a crown or cap, the cavity becomes exposed again and more susceptible to infection, so it’s important to have these repaired immediately.
Chipped, broken, cracked, and fractured teeth can all be considered an emergency, but more importantly—if a tooth has been knocked out of place or dislodged, this requires urgent treatment.
Furthermore, extreme pain also warrants emergency dental care, so be sure not to ignore severe symptoms.
