When should you seek emergency dental care?
One of the most common situations that require an emergency dental visit is a knocked-out tooth, but you may also need to visit us if you have severe pain or lingering tooth infection that leads to a dental abscess.
If you're not sure whether you should seek urgent dental care, get in touch with our practice anyway so we can advise you about the next steps you should take.
Some of the most common dental emergencies that require a visit to an emergency dentist near Sterling include:
- Toothaches or tooth pain
- Infections or abscesses
- Chipped, broken, or cracked teeth
- Deep cuts inside the mouth
- Swollen and tender gums
- Sores that are slow to heal
- Broken or lost crown, bridge, onlay, veneer, denture, or dental implant
- A tooth which has been knocked out
- A tooth that has become loose

If you have a chipped tooth that doesn't cause you any amount of pain, that is not classified as a dental emergency, but you should stay and call our practice so we can give you advice on what you before you see a dentist for a regular appointment.
