What is a dental emergency? How soon should you take action on your dental emergency? What do you do if you do if you have a dental emergency?
In short, a dental emergency can be anything ranging from sensitivity, to pain, to even getting a tooth knocked out. The severity of your dental emergency should be used to determine how soon you need to be seen by a dentist. In cases such as sensitivity patients can general carry on with their daily activities without disruption therefore, they can wait a few days before paying a visit to the dentist. In more serious cases, such as getting a tooth knocked out or even in situations of excruciating pain, a visit to the dentist may be necessary immediately.
It is important for patients to realize that just because a circumstance is not life threatening, it can still be considered an emergency. Many of our emergency dental patients that come to Agoura Dental Group face more serious procedures due to not scheduling emergency dental appointments in a timely manner.
