Do I Need to Schedule an Emergency Exam?
Whether you’ve knocked out a tooth playing sports, or you’ve lost a crown, all dental emergencies should be addressed quickly to prevent further pain or complications. It may not always be easy to tell when you have a dental emergency, but you should schedule an appointment with us if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- A severe, sudden toothache
- Knocked out, broken, or cracked teeth
- Broken or loose braces
- Lost fillings or crowns
- Loose adult teeth
- Swollen and/or painful gums
- Oral bleeding that won’t stop
You should schedule an emergency appointment anytime you’re experiencing severe or sudden oral pain, swelling, or continuous bleeding. It’s essential to have a skilled emergency dentist evaluate the issue as soon as possible to prevent further complications or pain. If you’re experiencing dental pain accompanied by a fever, facial swelling, or swollen lymph nodes, contact us as soon as possible, as these are symptoms that could suggest you may have an abscessed tooth.
Some dental emergencies can be prevented by staying on top of your oral hygiene and being proactive when playing sports, however, others may be completely unavoidable, such as knocking out a tooth during a car accident. Whatever is the cause of your dental emergency, we’ll tailor a custom treatment plan to fit your needs and restore your oral health.
If you’re experiencing pain, swelling, or any other troublesome symptoms, don’t hesitate to give our Springfield IL office a call at 217-483-7177 or schedule an appointment through our online form.
