When Is Emergency Dental Care Needed?
Dental emergencies include:
- Trauma or injury to the teeth, face or mouth
- Infection or swelling of the gums, mouth or face
- Severe, unmanageable discomfort or pain
In any of these situations, you should seek help as soon as possible. If your dental emergency is life-threatening, call 911 immediately.
Generally, however, the place to start is at the dental office. If, for example, you have a fractured tooth, that immediate problem requires diagnosis and treatment. Likewise, severe pain or swelling could be a sign of infection or disease, which also could require immediate intervention and treatment.
