Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are common for both children and adult dental patients – and of course are not anticipated until they occur. If you or your child is lost a tooth during sports, physical activity or is suddenly in excruciating dental pain for an unknown reason it is important to seek care immediately.
Dental emergencies can affect the teeth, gums, lips, cheeks and even the tongue. Outside of dental trauma, sudden and intense pain can also be a signal that something is wrong and that you should seek emergency treatment.
In order to most effectively manage your dental emergency it is first and foremost important to have an established relationship with a dental office that you can trust. College Park Dental is happy to offer afterhours services and advice for our patients in the case of dental emergency. However, without a dental office on speed dial, you may be forced to take your dental emergency to the emergency room.
Dental Emergencies can include the following:
- Accident or injury that resulted in a broken jaw, broken or cracked tooth or a knocked out permanent tooth
- Severe Toothache
- Serious Swelling of the Mouth or Face
