How to Identify a Dental Emergency
Unfortunately, dental emergencies happen more often than you would think and it’s important to know how to take care of your teeth when something urgent happens. While you may not know what your exact diagnosis will be, some common symptoms to be on the lookout for are:
- Any tooth, jaw, or mouth pain
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Swollen gums or jaw
- Foul taste or smell
- Lost or loose teeth
- Sensitivity to temperature or sweets
If you are unsure if your dental issue is an emergency or not, call 1-855-4LAKEVIEW and one of our trained team members will help you determine your next steps. If your dental emergency is potentially life-threatening, you should go to the emergency room.
What to do in Case of a Dental Emergency?
Your next steps will be determined by the type of emergency you are experiencing. In all cases, make sure you control the emergency first and then call for an appointment. Make sure you keep track of the steps you have taken and communicate those to your dentist!
