What should I do if I have a toothache?
Any time you experience tooth pain, you should seek the help of your Northfield emergency dentist. Pain is an indication that something is wrong. Leaving your toothache untreated can result in advanced oral conditions and tooth extraction.
When you contact your emergency dentist at Nordonia Dental Group, we can help you by diagnosing and treating the condition as quickly as possible.
Common dental emergencies include:
- Swelling and tooth pain
- A broken tooth or crown
- A lost filling
- Painful gums
- Sports trauma
- Accidents including falling or auto
- Broken or dropped dentures
It’s common to be confused about whether you have a real dental emergency. The best way to find out if your dental pain or situation warrants an immediate emergency dental appointment at our Northfield dental office is to contact one of our dentists right away.
In most cases, we can treat dental emergencies on the same day, especially if you contact our gentle dentists right away.
Your emergency dental appointment will begin when we ask you a few questions about when the tooth trouble started, take some diagnostic x-rays, and have everything reviewed by our dentist. We will proceed with treatment to stabilize your condition and provide your long-term options at your emergency dental exam.
