A dental emergency can come without warning. It’s important to have a dentist you can turn to if something goes wrong.
We understand that having a dental emergency can be a very stressful time. You’ll most likely be in a lot of pain or feel concerned about how it will affect your teeth, mouth, and appearance. Our staff at One Fine Smile truly cares about your oral health and are ready and waiting for any dental emergency that may arise.
How soon should I come in for a Dental Emergency?
If you truly have a dental emergency, time is of the essence. If left untreated for too long, the damage can continue to worsen until it results in devastating complications. Coming in to see us right away can really be the difference between losing and saving a tooth. At One Fine Smile, we always do our best to treat your dental emergency as quickly as possible on the same day of the incident.
Is my issue considered a Dental Emergency?
In order to properly prioritize the severity of our patient’s oral issues, it’s important to make sure if what you’re experiencing is actually a dental emergency. This allows us more opportunities to treat those who have no time to lose. Here are some of the more common reasons why you would need immediate treatment from a dentist:
- Continuous bleeding
- Severe pain
- Lots of swelling of the gum or cheeks
- One or more knocked-out teeth
- Signs of infection
Still unsure if you’re experiencing a Dental Emergency?
If you’re unsure if your symptoms or visible problem are going to be classified as a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to ask. Please give us a call and we’ll be able to determine if you need to come see us immediately or if we should simply schedule you for an appointment.
