Dental Emergencies That Require Immediate Care
There are a couple of dental emergencies that require immediate care so please don’t delay contacting us if you knock out a tooth. Sometimes it is possible to successfully reinsert the tooth, but usually only within the first half an hour to an hour after the accident. If you can’t come and see us immediately, go to your nearest emergency room. A severe tooth infection also requires urgent care and especially if you feel unwell or have a fever or develop facial swelling. You could have a severe dental abscess that in the worst case, can become life-threatening. Come and see us immediately or go to your emergency room.
