When should you seek urgent dental care?
We see many patients who avoid seeking urgent dental care because they think it's not such a big deal, and they don't want to inconvenience the dental team at odd hours.
However, there are moments when you can't delay seeking dental care, so if you are worried about a severe oral injury for yourself or a member of your family or if someone is in pain, don't put off finding emergency dental care.
Some of the most common dental emergencies include:
- Broken teeth
- Loose tooth
- Severe pain in the teeth or mouth
- Bleeding from your gums or anywhere inside of your mouth
- Any severe oral injury
- Swollen gums
- A badly impacted tooth
If you only have a mildly chipped tooth that does not hurt at all, this is not a dental emergency, but you should still call our emergency dentist in Herndon, VA, so we can give you advice on how to take care of your tooth before your appointment.
