emergencyAt SL Dental centre If you’re not sure whether or not a dental problem is an “emergency”, 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.

The same can be true for a lost filling or crown. Even if you don’t have any symptoms, the tooth has lost its support and it could easily become weaker. Pieces could break off or crumble, and you would need more extensive treatment. If you see your dentist right away, there’s a good chance they will be able to repair the damage with minimal treatment.

Do you have any of the following symptoms?

  • Have a toothache that won’t go away?
  • Experiencing facial swelling?
  • Think you have a gum infection?
  • Sensitivity to cold or hot liquids or sweets?
  • Pain from biting pressure?
  • Constant or intermittent tooth pain?
  • Severe throbbing tooth pain?
  • Tissue swelling of the face?

These are good indications that you are having some kind of issue that needs to be dealt with in a timely fashion. In fact, we specialize in treating almost all dental emergencies ranging from broken teeth to oral injuries!
