Emergency Dental Services For Minot Patients
If you have a dental issue that needs immediate assistance, you should give us a call for an emergency appointment. We work with dental offices throughout Southern Maine so we can help you find a dentist in the event that our office is booked. You should never ignore any type of dental emergency. Dental emergencies include:
Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
A chipped, broken, or cracked tooth needs to be handled right away. Damage to a tooth is something that shouldn't be ignored as it can lead to the tooth breaking and falling out if not treated.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
If you feel like a filling is loose, moving, or if a filling falls out, you should immediately see a dentist to get it fixed. A lost filling can leave a hole in your tooth that can put that tooth at risk of breaking.
You should never ignore pain coming from your mouth. A toothache can have many causes, and if you or someone in your family has one, you should consider seeing a dentist right away.
Swollen jaws are often signs of various mouth injuries. While it is possible to have a swollen jaw for a different reason, you should consider seeing a dentist if you have a swollen jaw.
If a tooth gets knocked out due to an injury you should quickly see a dentist. If possible bring the tooth and it might be able to be re-implanted.
May Need A Root Canal
Dental pain might be related to damage deep within your tooth. If tooth decay spreads to the tooth root, the best solution is to have a root canal. Otherwise the tooth might need to be removed at a certain point.
If you have gums that are frequently bleeding or are red and puffy, you should consider going to a dentist. Instead of waiting for your next dental visit, seeing a dentist early can help prevent the progression of gum disease.
Other Types of Dental Repair
If you notice any pain or dental issues, you shouldn't wait until your next scheduled dental appointment. Dental injuries should always be handled as quickly as possible.
