Emergency Dental Care FAQ
Should I go to the emergency room for a dental emergency?
You should only visit the emergency room for life-threatening situations. Most of the time, it's not necessary to visit the emergency room for dental emergencies unless you are experiencing severe bleeding, life-threatening symptoms, or significant trauma to the mouth or face.
What should I expect from a dental emergency appointment?
When you call us for an emergency appointment, one of our dentists will locate and treat the cause of the problem. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove the tooth that is causing pain, but we will explain it to you before the procedure.
If you have a tooth that can be saved, we will advise you on the best course of action during the emergency appointment.
In case you have an abscess, you may need a root canal treatment, which will remove the nerves from the affected tooth before filling it.
Are dental emergency avoidable?
Most dental infections are avoidable, especially those related to toothache caused by severe decay and abscesses. Ensure you maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and visiting your dentist twice a year for regular checkups.
