When to See An Emergency Dentist
Dental emergencies do not happen often, but you need to seek help right away when they do. Car accidents, sports injuries, and other sudden damage to your mouth can happen at any time without warning, and tooth accidents can permanently damage your mouth and overall health if you do not take care of them immediately.
Despite this, you may not always be able to reach your family dentist during an emergency. Then, you need to get to an emergency dentist right away to save your teeth.
Most minor dental emergencies do not require a dental visit. For instance, many toothaches come from small pieces of food stuck to your teeth or between them. You can just thoroughly brush and floss your teeth to remove the food debris and the toothache at the same time. You only need to see an emergency dentist if this does not work as you might have an infected tooth or a cavity.
On the other hand, if you suffer any accident or sudden damage, you need to see an emergency dentist immediately.
