While oral injuries are the most obvious dental emergencies, they are not the only kind of emergency that requires immediate treatment. Things like serious toothaches that may require a root canal qualify as dental emergencies, as well as damaged dental work, such as a pulled-out crown or filling.
As a general rule, if your oral condition is causing you serious pain and discomfort, and there is no way for you to treat it on your own, this is considered a dental emergency and should seek professional help right away.
If your tooth is knocked out, it is critical to get treatment within 1-2 hours to ensure the best outcome. You should take the following steps to save your tooth:
Same-day dental appointments are critical for treating dental emergencies. The longer you wait to treat a tooth that’s infected, damaged, loose, or even has been knocked-out altogether, the less likely it will be that Dr. Nguyen will be able to repair and save your tooth.
Not only that, but emergency dentistry is critical for getting relief from pain and discomfort. A serious dental injury like an impacted tooth or a serious infection can be absolutely excruciating. The faster you get treatment, the sooner you’ll be able to go back to your day-to-day life.
