WHAT KIND OF DENTAL ISSUES REQUIRE EMERGENCY TREATMENT?
Dental injury caused by impact to the mouth (chipped teeth, knocked out teeth, or loose teeth). These types of injuries should be treated right away. Time can make a difference on whether a tooth can be saved or it is irreplaceable.
If you are suffering from tooth pain, the severity of the pain can be an indicator of a serious problem. Toothaches can be caused by a variety of reasons, such as a broken tooth, a new cavity under an old filling, or from grinding or clenching your teeth.
Sore and swollen gums can be an infection from plaque and gum disease. It also can be a reaction from food getting stuck between the teeth. If the pain is constant and your gums bleed at the slightest touch, you should see a dentist right away.
