What constitutes a dental emergency?
Some dental injuries clearly require urgent care, while others may seem like they can wait until later. However, we strongly recommend that any signs of significant pain be treated as an emergency. After all, those symptoms usually are an indicator of a much more serious problem that could be wreaking internal havoc on your oral health. The following issues should be addressed at Cashmere Family Dentistry as quickly as possible:
- Cracked or chipped tooth
- Gum abscess
- Partially dislodged tooth
- Fully dislodged tooth
- An object stuck between teeth that cannot be removed safely
- Lost filling or crown
- Persistent toothache
- Loose or broken brackets on braces
- Broken braces
- Steady bleeding in the mouth
- Soft tissue injuries in the cheeks, gums, lips, or tongue
- Jaw injuries
While a lot of dental emergencies occur from circumstances that are out of a person’s control, patients can take steps to keep them and their children safer. Never use your teeth as tools to cut or tear open packaging, and always wear a mouthguard when playing sports.
While extractions are never ideal, they can become necessary due to decay, injury, improperly growing teeth, or other reasons that could threaten your oral health. During this procedure, our team will do everything we can to ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible. We’ll be sure to go over our tooth replacement options with you if needed so that you can get back to enjoying a full, complete smile like you deserve.
