What is considered a Dental Emergency?

It’s not uncommon for people to experience dental or oral pain from time to time. While some problems can wait, others demand timely attention to eliminate pain or prevent serious infection.

Emergency dental care is typically needed to address mouth trauma and broken teeth, along with loosened, broken or lost fillings. It’s not always easy for a person to determine whether their specific issue requires emergency dental care.

In most cases, you can identify an emergency dental or oral issue by asking yourself any of the following:

  • Are you experiencing severe pain or bleeding?

  • Have you lost a tooth which could be saved with prompt treatment?

  • Do you have a loose adult tooth?

  • Are you showing signs of an infection, including fever, a foul smell or swelling around the gums or face?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should call us immediately at 678-269-7458.

Why is Emergency Dental Care Important?

Prompt dental treatment can help preserve teeth and function, while reducing the risk of serious infections that can have long-term consequences. Emergency dental care can also alleviate severe pain, so patients can continue to meet work and family responsibilities. Emergency dental care at Dentique is also an intelligent alternative to traditional emergency rooms, which can only offer limited care and tend to charge exorbitant fees.
