Emergency Dental Care
Emergency dentist - Livonia, MI
You never know when you may need emergency dental care. Contact sports, tripping and falling, fender benders... even accidentally biting a hard piece of food can cause a serious dental emergency.
If you need emergency dental care, Livonia Dental Care is the best choice in the area. But what qualifies as a dental emergency, and how soon should you come in for treatment?
What Qualifies As A Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency is any dental issue that must be treated immediately in order to save a tooth, reduce pain or eliminate the risk of infection.
- Missing (avulsed) teeth
- Loose teeth
- Damaged, cracked, or seriously chipped teeth
- Damage to gums or internal oral tissue
It’s estimated that around 25-40% of traumatic dental injuries are caused by contact sports, and most others are caused by accidents, like falls or slips. Common dental emergencies can include:
However, dental emergencies can also include serious toothaches caused by infection, or any other dental issue that causes significant pain or bleeding, and must be addressed immediately.
Simply put, if you are undergoing serious pain and you feel that your tooth must be examined right away, you are undergoing a dental emergency.
How Soon Should I See The Dentist In Case Of An Emergency?
You should see a dentist as soon as you can if you are undergoing a dental emergency. Usually, quick action is required to save your tooth and minimize pain and the risk of infection.
Ideally, you should see a dentist on the same day that you suffer from a dental emergency, especially in case of a loose, damaged or missing tooth.
