Dental Emergency Conditions
Though we can’t diagnose what you are facing until visit with you, here are some symptoms that may warrant an emergency:

- Your gums are bleeding or aching
- You have tooth pain after physical trauma
- You can taste metal in your mouth

These symptoms can be signs of serious tooth infections, gum infections, risks of tooth loss, and other serious issues that could be a dental emergency. If you experience any of these, give us a call.
What Is Emergency Dental Care?
Emergency dental care covers a range of treatments that are used to restore your oral health as quickly. It is to prevent further harm or complications as a result of a dental emergency. For instance, in the case of tooth loss or damage, we can offer tooth reattachment or bonding treatments. This allows the tooth to heal in place naturally. It can also include the use of antibiotics to stop infections.
