Dental emergencies like tooth pain, a lost filling, or a cracked tooth can be painful and aren’t something you want to wait to fix. Let’s face it: these issues rarely happen when you have a dental appointment already scheduled for the next day. Waiting around for your next visit could even be bad for your oral health. When you have a crack in your tooth or you’ve lost a filling, ignoring the problem gives bacteria time to get into the tooth and cause even more damage. A toothache could be a sign of a deeper problem like gum disease or an infection, both of which need to be addressed quickly in order to stop or even reverse the damage before it ends up affecting your overall wellness.
Whether your tooth or mouth pain is caused by an injury or just from chewing on something a little too hard, or you’re in need of an emergency dental extraction, getting into the dentist as quickly as possible is key to maintaining your health. Some of the most common dental emergencies we see include:
- Chipped or cracked tooth
- Lost filling or crown
- Severe toothache
- Broken tooth
- Knocked-out tooth
- Abscess (sore on gums)
