What qualifies as a dental emergency?

Dentistry that necessitates immediate attention can be categorized as:

  • Aching tooth, feeling irritations and sensations indicating an infection in the teeth or gums
  • Swelling in the jaw due to infections. Trauma resulting in fracturing of the tooth

What happens on an emergency visit to a dentist?

The dentist takes X-rays and performs a restricted examination centered on the dental emergency and the effective treatment. When an emergency arises, it may be essential to refer the patient to a specialist as soon as possible.

Several dental emergencies can be prevented or stopped if frequent cleanings and checkups are conducted regularly. These checkups can effectively aid in the detection of dental problems at the initial stages when they can be easily treated.

All new patients receive oral exam, digital x-rays for $89.
