WHAT IS A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
PEACE OF MIND AT YOUR FAMILY DENTIST
No patient is the same, and neither is the care they will need after a dental injury. Even if you have only a small pain in your mouth, you should contact our office and schedule a visit. At Hampden Family Dental we believe our patients deserve to lead healthy lives, free of pain or worry. That is why we treat a wide range of minor to more complex dental issues, including some of the following examples of dental injuries:
- Chipped tooth, broken tooth or dislodged crown
- Knocked out tooth (also known as an avulsed tooth)
- Lost dental filling or crown
- Fractured or cracked tooth
- Loose tooth from tooth decay or a dental trauma
- Chronic toothache, or object caught between teeth
Not every dental injury is in need of immediate dental care, but the longer you wait to resolve a dental issue the more risk there is for developing other dental health conditions, including tooth decay, inflammation, a root canal, or even tooth loss. The best way to protect your smile is to seek professional dental care early-on and use preventive steps to keep your smile healthy and strong year-round.
