Regardless of the age of those who are involved, dental emergencies are often extremely stressful situations. Parents often worry about how dental trauma could affect the future of their child’s smile, and children get anxious and upset due to the pain and sight of blood. Most dental emergencies can be handled successfully without any permanent damage to your smile. However, it is important that you have a family dentist who offers emergency dentistry and can arrange for you to be seen as soon as possible.
Because our smiles are so personal to us, it can be devastating to experience injury, trauma or damage to our teeth. Not only do we need to restore the teeth to their original integrity and strength for optimal dental function, but it is important to repair any aesthetic defects that an oral trauma may have caused. See your dentist for dental emergencies such as the following:
- Minor chips
- Fractured teeth
- Avulsed teeth
- Trauma or injury to the teeth or gums
- Severe toothaches
- Lost fillings
- Caps and crowns that have been displaced
