Determining Whether You Have a Dental Emergency

Don’t let a dental emergency ruin your day! It might be frightening to go through, but the very first step of addressing a dental emergency is determining whether or not it is even an emergency to begin with. If you find yourself in an emergency situation, use this as a guide before hitting the panic button!

Symptoms of a Dental Emergency

There are quite a few different types of dental emergencies. Whether you’re experiencing complications from a recent oral procedure or have suddenly broken or knocked out a tooth, here are some common symptoms of a dental emergency:

  1. Excessive swelling or bleeding
  2. Extreme tooth or gum sensitivity
  3. Difficulty moving your jaw
  4. Having a chipped, broken, or knocked out tooth

What To Do When You Have a Dental Emergency

If you think you are going through a dental emergency, the number one rule is to not panic. If you’re not sure if you’re going through a dental emergency, remember that if you’re in doubt, it’s best to be safe and get checked out by your dentist immediately. It’s important to make sure that your regular dental office can accept emergency appointments. If not, you should have the contact information of a practice that does accept emergency appointments on hand.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
