How To When You Need Emergency Dental Care

Patients often have a hard time identifying when they are in need of emergency dental care. They assume that some issues can wait till their next dental appointment but while all dental issues may not require emergency dental there a few cases where seeking emergency care absolutely necessary. Lasting Smiles of Whitehouse Station, offers emergency dental care services to any patient seeking top-quality family dental care in Tewksbury, NJ, and the surrounding areas.

To take some of the confusion away from determining when emergency dental services are needed we’ve created this list of common dental issues that will require emergency dental care.

Broken Tooth

When left untreated a broken or fractured tooth can become infected as bacteria makes its way down into the soft tissue of a tooth. Once your tooth has become infected you will need to undergo root canal treatment to save your tooth.

Missing Filling

It may not seem like a big deal, but you should never let a missing filling go unchecked. When a filling falls out it can leave you tooth structurally unstable and can lead to severe pain and irreplaceable damage.

A Severe Toothache

Experiencing a severe toothache is a common sign that there is something wrong with your tooth. Severe tooth pain can be a sign of a bigger issue like a deep cavity or an inflamed tooth root.

Traumatic Tooth Damage

Traumatic damage can lead to the nerve of the tooth dying or becoming infected, both of which will require additional dental services to be corrected. If your tooth is knocked out you should seek emergency dental care within one hour in order for the tooth to be reinserted.
