Although severe dental emergencies might not happen often, our team at Infinity Dental of Murray, Utah is equipped and ready with the highest level of care whenever that emergency might happen. Severe dental emergencies aren’t the only dental emergencies that we would qualify as an emergency or something that should be taken care of right away. In some cases, even a minor toothache could be an emergency, so it’s important to pay attention to your teeth and come in to see us whenever something might be wrong.
Knocked-out Tooth: If you or a family member participates in activities with high levels of physical contact, it’s possible you could eventually suffer from someone or something knocking out your tooth. If this has happened, please come in and see us immediately, time is of the essence.
Toothache: Although this might not seem like a dental emergency, it very well can be. If you have had chronic severe sensitivity or sharp pain in one or multiple teeth, you could have a toothache, which could indicate a cavity. The dentist is the only individual who can diagnose a toothache and a cavity, so if you are experiencing this pain, schedule an appointment. It’s best to catch these early on.
Broken or Cracked Tooth: Sometimes, due to chewing or other daily activities, our teeth might crack or break. If you have noticed a break or a crack, it is important to get it looked at as soon as possible. Cracks and breaks increase the risk of cavities and decay,
When it comes to the health and wellbeing of your teeth and getting you out of pain, we prefer to handle the issue as soon as we can. We advise our patients that if they are experiencing any of the above emergencies or any kind of tooth pain that they see us immediately.
In most cases, when problems are caught and taken care of quickly, it can prevent the problem from worsening which could potentially save a tooth. If you are in Murray, Utah, or any surrounding area and you have been experiencing a dental emergency, please come see our emergency dentist, Dr. Isaacson.
