Dental injuries often occur unexpectedly, and they can't always wait until the next business day. When you need an emergency dental office, Hanson Dentistry can provide emergency services.
Dental Issues That Require Immediate Care
While most oral problems can wait until your regular dentist appointment, certain ones need to be treated right away. Traumatic injuries, which usually occur when the teeth and/or mouth are damaged due to excessive force, should be considered emergencies. These sorts of injuries can include the following:
Knocked-out teeth (particularly permanent teeth)
Broken or chipped teeth
Teeth that have been pushed out of position in the gums
Cuts inside the mouth
Other conditions that may need urgent treatment include excessively painful toothaches, especially if you're also experiencing a fever or severe swelling, and problems with dental treatments such as broken crowns and missing fillings, which can leave nerves exposed and cause intense pain.
