Some dental problems can wait for a few days until you get a dental appointment. But others are true emergencies that must be treated without any delay to prevent complications.
– Extreme pain in the jaw or teeth could mean you have a serious infection.
– Mouth bleeding that won’t stop needs treatment ASAP.
– A deep tooth fracture that reaches the tooth’s pulp or root needs immediate attention.
If you find yourself in any of the situations described above, call your dentist to make an emergency appointment.
