What is a Dental Emergency?
One of the first things you need to understand is what is an emergency and what is something you can schedule. The following are examples of what could be considered a dental emergency.
Broken Tooth – If you are dealing with a broken tooth, you are already aware that you are dealing with a dental emergency. A broken tooth exposes both the inner pulp and nerve to the outside world, which greatly increases your chances of developing a dental infection. You need to come see us immediately.
Dislodged Tooth – The faster you can get your tooth back into place within your smile, the better the chances your tooth can be saved. Get to Louisville Dental E.R. quickly to get the help you need. Note: Put the tooth in a glass of milk to help preserve it while you travel. Be sure to rinse it with warm water to remove any foreign debris.
Abscess – If you have an abscess, you are in pain, and know you need help. The experts at Louisville Dental E.R. can help. The first thing you need is the abscess drained, and the infection managed. Our team will get you squared away fast, and on the road to a happier and healthier smile fast.
Tooth Pain – Here is an example of a condition that could be and could not be a dental emergency. The determining factor is the amount of pain you are in, and no one can tell you what is too much pain or too little. That is something only you can know. If you are experiencing tooth pain, and feel like it is an emergency, get to Louisville Dental E.R. today to get the help you need.
