It is possible that some dental discomfort may go away with time if it is from a mild trauma such as accidentally biting a hard food item or your cheek, but if it persists longer than a week or two, treatment may be needed. If you are experiencing a sharp and/or lingering pain, then it is best to seek an immediate appointment to rule out an infection or abscess.
It is wise to call and review your symptoms with our team so that we can determine the best timing for an appointment with us. You can reach Dr. Harvey after hours in an emergency situation as well. We will provide the best recommendations possible to get you comfortable again, so that you can enjoy your food and daily life.
