When to Call an Emergency Dentistry

We all know this is a dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings, and especially if we begin to experience tooth pain. But how do you know if that tooth pain is enough to warrant a call to an emergency dentistry? West Five Family Dental offers a look at several instances you should contact an emergency dentist London Ontario.

Knocked out Tooth

This is a rather obvious reason to call an emergency dentistry. However you would be surprised at the number of people who will wait to visit a dentist and the event of a knocked-out tooth. If you want to save your tooth, it’s imperative that you visit a dentist immediately.

Cracked or broken tooth

A cracked or broken tooth can be quite painful, and it could also cause serious complications in your mouth if left untreated. Infection could set in if damage goes all the way to the route. Plus, the pain will be so unbearable the only thing you’ll want to do is get to your dentist immediately.

Abscessed tooth or severe toothache

An abscess tooth, often characterized with yellow fluid, fever, and shooting pain, can lead to Serious oral and overall health complications if left untreated. A severe toothache without any other symptoms or known causes can also be a sign of a serious dental issue.

Nonstop Bleeding or Temporary Crown Issue

If you are experiencing non stop bleeding in your mouth or gums, call your London Ontario dentist right away, especially if you are unsure of the cause. Having a problem with a temporary restoration like a crown may not seem like a dental emergency but it can lead to problems if left unaddressed.
