Dental emergencies happen, and when they do, they are almost always unpredictable, occurring any time of day or night. Whether you’ve lost a tooth, suffered a mouth or jaw injury, or are in severe mouth pain, call us right away.
If you are unsure as to whether or not your situation constitutes an immediate emergency—meaning a trip to our office right away—we will be able to help you determine that.
We have been proudly providing quality emergency dental care to the community for well over a decade. But what you may not know is that we can also take of routine dental care, such as general dentistry, pain relief procedures, root canals, tooth extractions (including wisdom teeth), crowns, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, dental hygiene, periodontics, and much more.
Now your emergency dentist can also be your general dentist with Urgent Dental Care of New Hampshire. Call us today!
Reasons You Might Need an Emergency Dentist
If you suffer an injury to the mouth, you might need to see the dentist right away. If your tooth is cracked, broken, or has completely fallen out, you likely will need immediate care.
When your tooth has been completely knocked out, immediate attention is particularly important so we can try to save your tooth. If possible, put the tooth back into its socket. Or keep the tooth in your mouth between your cheek and gum until you can get into our office. If you call ahead, we can also advise you on the best way to get the tooth in to us.
One of the most common reasons patients need to be seen right away is when toothache pain not only lingers but gets progressively worse. When it comes to pain in your mouth, there is just one rule of thumb: It is never normal!
We frequently see patients who complain of a severe toothache. In many cases, there is pain because of an infection in the pulp of the tooth. Often, this means a root canal is necessary to save the tooth. We will be able to determine if this is the case by taking an x-ray.
Sometimes toothaches happen for other reasons, including gum infections or abscesses. A cracked or lost filling can also cause pain.
Some situations might be uncomfortable but they likely do not constitute a dental emergency. These include:
- A lost crown or filling
- Food stuck between your teeth
- Mild pain in your mouth that is more annoying than severe
Regardless of your situation, give us a call and we will see you as soon as possible—within hours rather than days or weeks!
