A dental emergency derails your weekend plans, keeps you awake most of the night, and makes you irritable. We get it. Dental emergencies, especially severe toothaches, are the worst.
However, a toothache is not the only type dental emergency our Concord, NH patients experience. Any dental issue that threatens your oral health or prevents you from enjoying your life is a dental emergency by our definition.
Examples of dental emergencies include:
- Tooth sensitivity
- Jaw pain
- Jaw swelling
- Broken tooth or restoration
- Tooth or restoration knocked out or knocked loose
- Injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth
- Object lodged between teeth
These are only examples. If you notice anything that falls outside these definitions, contact a member of our compassionate dental team. Ongoing or sudden oral health changes can also be urgent, which is why we want to hear from you.
Remember, regular dental exams, including periodic x-rays, and teeth cleanings can help lower your risks for cavities and dental infections. Also, an excellent brushing and flossing routine at home is crucial when it comes to avoiding infection or decay-based dental emergencies.
