There are several dental emergencies (circumstances that require prompt attention). The most common are:
- Traumatic injuries requiring suturing of facial or mouth area soft tissues
Repositioning and stabalizing teeth that have been damaged and or malpositioned
Avulsed teeth—see separate blog
Soft tissue swelling which has been caused by infection anywhere in the maxillary
(upper arch). This is a true and serious dental emergency because of the proximity of
many maxillary root tips to the base of the brain chamber. When reported to our office the only question will be--how soon can you get here?
