Your Guide to when Dental Injuries Call for an Emergency Dentist

If you injure your teeth when your regular dentist’s practice is closed, you may not be sure if the damage calls for emergency treatment. Use these helpful tips to know when your case is a true emergency.

Facing a Fractured or Cracked Tooth?

You’ll be able to tell if you must seek out emergency dental services Springfield by the site and severity of the damage. If the crack or break is minor, then you can wait until the dentist’s normal office hours. But you’ll need an emergency dentist if you’re faced with these tooth troubles:

  • A deep crack or break in your teeth
  • A large shard of your tooth is missing
  • The tooth has a sharp edge that could damage your gums or make it hard to chew
  • The tooth is very painful or completely numb

Tolerating the Ache of Tooth Pain?

When you’re suffering from tooth pain, it’s usually harder to tell if you should seek emergency dental services Springfield. Mild or fleeting pain can often wait until you can get an appointment with your regular dentist. But if the pain is severe and causing swelling or other dental problems, you’ll need emergency treatment. But before seeking out an emergency dentist Springfield, try calling your regular dentist’s office since many leave openings in their schedule for emergency treatment or an emergency telephone number after hours.

Down-and-Out about a Knocked-out Tooth?

This happens to people of all ages, whether from sports injuries, accidents, or simply biting down on a hard piece of food. If your tooth is completely knocked out, then you should get to an emergency dentist Springfield immediately. Try to retrieve the lost tooth and keep it in good condition until you get to the emergency dentist.
