What is considered a dental emergency?

Your emergency dentist in Springfield, IL, considers any oral health situation that puts your teeth and gums at risk or causes you pain a dental emergency. Of course, this can mean anything from a toothache to a mouth-related injury.

Common Dental Emergencies

When it comes to dental emergencies, there are many possibilities. For this reason, we always encourage you to contact a dental team member if you’re unsure.

However, the most common dental emergencies include:

  • Toothache or increased tooth sensitivity
  • Swelling in the lower face or jaw
  • Bump or blistering on the gum
  • Oral injury to the teeth or tissues
  • Broken tooth or restoration
  • Knocked-out tooth or restoration
  • Object stuck in tissues or between teeth

If you have a dental emergency, it’s essential to seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid potential tooth loss, the spread of infection, or worsening symptoms.

We design your appointment to address your specific emergency, but we always focus on relieving pain and restoring dental health.
