Looking for an Emergency Dentist? Be seen today!
Dental emergencies are quite frightening and often painful. Prompt dental care is almost always required to alleviate pain and to ensure the teeth have the best possible chance of survival.
Sometimes teeth become fractured by trauma, grinding or biting on hard objects. In other cases, fillings, crowns and other restorative devices can be damaged or fall out of the mouth completely. If there is severe pain, it is essential to make an appointment with the dentist as quickly as possible. The pain caused by dental emergencies almost always gets worse without treatment, and dental issues can seriously jeopardize physical health.
Dr. Crafton and his staff are highly qualified and equipped to help relieve the pain associated with a dental emergency. Some injuries that fall into this category are:
A knocked out tooth
Toothache pain caused by decay or abscess
These types of dental emergencies are not life-threatening, but that doesn’t make the need for immediate care any less important. If you’re experiencing one of these dental problems, it’s crucial that you not ignore it and seek attention as soon as possible.
