What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation involving your mouth or teeth that requires immediate attention to prevent serious consequences.

While some dental issues can wait for a scheduled appointment, emergencies need prompt action to stop pain, control bleeding, prevent infection, or save a tooth.

Remember, if you’re unsure whether your situation is an emergency, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and contact your dentist or our emergency dental service. Prompt action can prevent more serious complications and save you pain and discomfort.
