You need to make sure you work with us when you’re dealing with a dental emergency. Here are some of the more common ones that you’ll want to get help with.
If you have an abscess that is now infected you’re going to want to get this cared for as soon as possible. When infections first start up, they may just hurt or cause your breath to become bad, but if they aren’t cared for they can spread. Any kind of infection that spreads to your blood becomes deadly which is why we need to help you with this as soon as possible.
2. Broken Tooth
If you break a tooth for any reason then you need to get it taken care of before things get worse. Some of the time we can repair the tooth, other times there are other treatments we can work with you on. The longer you let a crack or a break go untreated, the more likely you are to lose the whole tooth. As soon as you have a problem with a broken tooth call us even if you don’t feel any pain so you don’t risk losing most of the tooth.
3. A growth of some kind that just starts forming on your gums can be a number of problems. If you haven’t harmed yourself by doing something like having a sharp piece of food go into your gums and they’re just swelling up, you need to get help right away. Sometimes you may have a problem with infections, allergic reactions, or something else that could be going on. Other times it may just be something simple that we can tell you about, but we’d rather you be safe than sorry when it comes to random swelling.
