Dental emergencies are quite frightening and often painful. Prompt treatment is may be required to alleviate pain and to ensure the teeth have the best possible chance of survival and to minimize infection.
Sometimes teeth become fractured by trauma, grinding or biting on hard objects. In other cases, fillings, crowns and other oral fixtures can be damaged or fall out of the mouth completely. If there is severe pain, it is essential to make an appointment with the dentist as quickly as possible. The pain caused by dental emergencies almost always gets worse without treatment, and dental issues can seriously jeopardize physical health.
Please contact the office as soon as possible and explain the nature of your emergency.
