Accidents happen. Just like a sprained ankle or broken arm, your mouth can also suffer unexpected injury. While a broken tooth or bleeding lip are obvious reasons to seek immediate care, there are other situations that warrant a trip to an emergency dentist. At West Hill Family Dental, we are equipped to offer a wide range of dental services under one roof – which means we can handle all types of dental emergencies with the level of care you deserve.

Dental emergencies can elicit pain and panic as well as limit your ability to eat, sleep or even concentrate. Don’t ignore sudden dental pain, as it could lead to worsening symptoms and more costly treatment down the road. If you are unsure about what constitutes a dental emergency, always err on the side of caution.

Some dental emergencies can wait several hours or even a couple of days to be addressed. Other situations need urgent, time-sensitive care. In general, here are some of the most common reasons to visit your emergency dentist sooner rather than later:

  • Mouth injuries that don’t stop bleeding
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Lost fillings
  • Dislodged crowns
  • Broken braces
  • Dental Abscess
  • Persistent Toothache

Again, the above situations are just examples of urgent dental problems. If you are concerned about tooth pain or the sudden condition of your teeth, please give us a call at West Hill Family Dental. As with all of our dental appointments, we will go above and beyond to help calm your anxieties and create a positive, stress-free dental visit. Unlike treatment from a hospital emergency room, our office provides care that not only alleviates pain but also addresses the long-term health and appearance of your smile.
