How do I know if I have a dental emergency?

Facial trauma can cause damage to your tooth and/or the root of the tooth, ultimately effecting its lifespan. If you've been hit or experienced any facial trauma and have noticed a change/pain with a tooth, this warrants a dental emergency.

Severe pain or swelling can occur from various dental concerns as well. Dental infections, extensive decay or broken teeth are a few different situations that can cause these symptoms.

Call your dentist if you have lost fillings, toothaches, an unusual/bad taste in your mouth, or sensitivity. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.  We will see you as soon as possible!
