Some dental treatments just can’t wait. In the event of a dental emergency, call South Cliff Dental Group right away.
What is Considered a Dental Emergency?
There are many situations that can be classified as a dental emergency. Dental emergencies require immediate attention from a dental practice or hospital emergency room. The big difference between emergency events and standard oral health issues is that the latter can wait to be seen by a dentist during regular practice hours.
Symptoms of severe toothache, infection, bleeding from the mouth or loose or lost teeth may all signal a dental emergency. If you require a dentist or healthcare professional to alleviate pain, save a tooth or stop bleeding, you are experiencing a dental emergency.
Common Dental Emergencies
Unlike other dental issues that are very clearly defined, dental emergencies take many forms. They may be the result of an accident, decay, bad luck or something else. Severity of dental emergencies fall on a spectrum as well, from minor to major. Here are some of the most common dental emergencies we encounter at South Cliff Dental Group:
