Dental Emergency – Is It Time to Call Your Dentist?

dca-blog_235-dental-emergencies

When you have a dental emergency such as a knocked-out tooth, fracture, or sudden, severe pain, there is no time to waste. If you procrastinate or ignore the damage, you may face serious consequences. Neglecting to treat a dental emergency promptly can result in costly future dental bills and serious infections that can spread to other parts of the body and become lethal. Don’t wait to see if pain goes away; see your dentist in Owings Mills immediately for evaluation and treatment of your injured tooth.

When to Seek Help
Prompt treatment in a dental emergency saves teeth. If you’re not sure whether or not a problem is truly urgent, play it safe and seek help. Your dentist will tell you that if there is pain involved, it is an emergency; pain often indicates involvement of the inner structures or nerves of your teeth. Even injuries that seem minor can cause serious damage, but timely treatment can prevent it from getting worse. If you experience pain after an injury, or there is visible damage to your tooth, call your family dentist, or go to an emergency dental clinic as soon as possible.

Emergency Dental Treatment Options


Dentists today have a variety of ways to deal with emergency dental situations. Modern dentistry offers advances in pain management and new ways to restore damaged or missing teeth. Durable, natural-looking synthetic materials can be used for fillings and restorations. In an emergency situation, a dental professional can quickly assess the seriousness of your injury and determine what your options are. Any pain you are suffering can usually be relieved within just a few minutes.
