If you’re not sure if a dental problem requires an emergency dentist, our dentists offer this advice: If it hurts, it’s an emergency! This is because even injuries that seem small or superficial can affect the living tissues inside the teeth. Quick treatment improves the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth.
Even if you aren’t in much pain, any structural damage to a tooth — from a sports injury, for example — should be considered an emergency. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing more problems in the future. We can prevent any possible damage from getting worse.
