Common Dental Emergencies: Injuries are among the most common reasons for dental emergencies, often resulting from sports-related incidents, falls, or accidents. If an injury poses a potential life-threatening situation, prioritize reaching out to emergency services before contacting us. For non-life-threatening injuries, contact our office immediately for expert guidance and prompt care.
Toothaches are another prevalent reason for seeking emergency dental care. They may arise from infections due to poor oral hygiene or develop as an abscess following a dental injury. For instance, if you took a tumble off your skateboard and later experience pain, seeking professional attention is crucial.
Cracked teeth or fillings can also lead to severe toothaches. Whether you’ve bitten down on a hard candy or encountered a stray bone during dinner, such incidents can cause unnoticed damage.
