Am I having a dental emergency?
Determining whether or not you’re actually dealing with a dental emergency isn’t always as cut and dry as you might think. The fact is, no dental pain is normal, but bleeding gums don’t always constitute an emergency. Chances are, if you believe you are having a dental emergency, you probably are. If you are experiencing severe pain, it can make your thinking cloudy and determining the next step difficult. Our expert staff at Colony Dental will help you determine whether you are having an emergency.
Some common symptoms that may be a sign of a dental emergency include:
- Painful inflammation
- Chronic or acute pain
- Bleeding that is difficult to stop
- Signs of infection such as pus and swelling
- Severe trauma to the teeth or soft tissue of the mouth
At the end of the day, it’s better to play it safe. If you believe you are having a dental emergency, call Colony Dental immediately at (281) 565-4100 to schedule an emergency appointment.
