What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency near Addison, TX is any dental situation that puts your teeth at risk or causes pain.

Because there are so many possible scenarios, it may be hard for you to gauge whether it’s an emergency or whether it can wait. As a rule, pain and swelling cannot wait! However, issues like a small chip or loose crown can often wait until the next appointment—provided there is no pain or swelling.

Examples of a dental emergency include:

  • Tooth or jaw pain
  • Jaw, gum, or face swelling
  • Object stuck in soft tissues
  • Knocked-out or broken tooth
  • Knocked-out or broken restoration
  • Tooth or gum trauma

If you have an oral health concern not described here, we still encourage you to contact our dental office for instructions on how to proceed. A knowledgeable team member will tell you whether you should come in immediately or wait.
