FAQ about Emergency Dentistry
Below, we’ll look at some of the most common questions regarding dental emergencies.
How do I know if my toothache is an emergency?
Toothaches can occur for many reasons, from infection to a piece of food stuck between teeth. Before you make an emergency appointment, you can try brushing and flossing your teeth to see if the toothache is due to something stuck in the teeth. If that does not help, or pain continues for a few days, it’s best to schedule an appointment for evaluation and treatment.
When should I go to the hospital versus the dentist?
If you experience any sort of traumatic injury to the face or head such as dislocation, abrasions that won’t stop bleeding, broken jaw or loss of consciousness, you should visit the local emergency room right away instead of calling the dentist. Once medical care has been received, you can schedule a follow-up with the dentist for any dental treatment that is needed.
