What is considered a dental emergency?

In our Annapolis, MD dental office, we make time for your dental emergency, and we treat emergencies as soon as possible.

A dental emergency can mean many things, but oral pain and issues that threaten your oral health are always dental emergencies.

Your emergency dentist in Annapolis, MD considers the following:

  • Toothache
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Loose tooth
  • Broken restoration
  • Soft tissue injuries

While the above list represents the most common dental emergencies, we understand that there can be many scenarios; it is impossible to consider them all. For this reason, we want to hear from you if you’re unsure or notice a sudden change in your oral health, including tooth sensitivity that does not go away or bleeding gums.

For patients looking to reduce their risks for oral emergencies, we recommend brushing and flossing twice daily and visiting your emergency dentist in Loretta Heights twice each year for dental exams and teeth cleanings.
