What Is a Dental Emergency?
You shouldn’t be aware of your teeth. In other words, in an ideal world, you wouldn’t feel any pain, discomfort, or sensitivity. Those symptoms are signs that something needs to be addressed by your Tampa dentist.
When the dental problems that cause those symptoms progress, they can eventually become a dental emergency. An emergency requires immediate attention from your Tampa dentist or may even entail a visit to your local Emergency Room.
Signs you might be experiencing a dental emergency include:
- Severe pain
- Non-stop pain
- A broken tooth, filling, or crown
- Uncontrolled bleeding
- Jaw swelling
