Sometimes accidents just happen, even when every precaution has been followed to prevent them. In fact, the very nature of an accident is that they are unexpected and not always avoidable.
At Tosh Dental Group, we understand how inconvenient and frustrating an accident can be, so we want to be a resource of help and reassurance. After all, dental emergencies require the expertise of a dental professional.
There are so many potential types of dental emergencies that it would be impossible to list them all, but there are some that are fairly common. Here is a list of some of the most common types of dental emergencies:
- Cracked or Chipped Teeth
- Dislodged Permanent Teeth
Cracking or chipping a permanent tooth can be traumatic, so having access to a dentist can be a huge relief. Timing is critical, so if your tooth is completely knocked out, call us immediately to schedule an emergency appointment to have the tooth restored. We don’t want you to have to live with the discomfort and inconvenience of a missing tooth any longer than you have to.
Depending on how bad it is, an injury to the gums could also require emergency dental care. This is especially true because a gum injury could lead to infection, so the sooner you can get professional dental care the better. At Tosh Dental Group, we will do our best to save that dislodged tooth or repair that damaged tooth or injured gum tissue.
Don’t Wait to Call if You’re Having an Emergency!
If your dental emergency is life-threatening, then call 911 immediately, but for those non-life-threatening dental emergencies, give us a call.
