What is considered a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is an unplanned damage or injury to your teeth, gums, or jawline. Most emergencies happen suddenly, such as a crack, split or damage to the teeth. If the emergency causes moderate or severe pain, difficulty chewing or talking you must call our offices immediately.
Our dentists are on standby to provide walk-in emergency services at a moment’s notice. If you’re experiencing anything we listed above, call our offices now!
Can I go to the ER for a dental emergency?
Generally, it is not recommended. Especially for localized damage to a tooth. Most emergency rooms do not have dentists on call, or even the services to provide dental care. As such you may find yourself waiting longer and not receiving the care you need. There are, of course, exceptions. If you or a family member has sustained serious head trauma it is important to be seen in the ER. While the dental needs certainly cannot be neglected, serious head trauma may involve deeper injury to the brain that Emergency Rooms are equipped to handle.
If you’re suffering from an unplanned dental emergency call Smile Zone Dental immediately.
