Despite Our Best Efforts, Dental Emergencies Still Happen

Dental and orthodontic emergencies can be a source of distress for both children and adults and are not worth the wait. Left untreated, dental and orthodontic issues can quickly become more severe and complex.

So, it’s essential to know when you should seek professional help. Unfortunately, ignoring dental and orthodontic warning signs could lead to painful infections, more prolonged treatment, and more costly bills. As a rule of thumb, it’s better to act immediately to stay on the road to health and wellness.

After scheduling urgent dental care, our dental team can suggest at-home care techniques (like applying a cold compress to a swollen mouth or dental wax to a broken wire) until you can receive emergency dental services. Also, if you feel like your life is at risk or have experienced severe head trauma, please visit the nearest emergency room to ensure you are well.
