A dental emergency is nigh impossible to plan for, but you can be prepared. When you or someone you care for is in pain due to an oral injury or an infection, you need to act quickly. At Berquist Family Dentistry in Crown Point, IN and Whiting, IN, our team offers emergency dentistry services when you need them most, allowing you to get out of pain faster and move on with your life sooner.
Is This a Dental Emergency?
The following conditions are considered a dental emergency and should be addressed as quickly as possible:
- Fractured or broken tooth
- Severe toothache (often accompanied by swelling in the gums)
- Object stuck between teeth
- Knocked out tooth
- Partially dislodged tooth
- Lacerations to soft tissue, including lips, gums, tongue, and cheeks
Though our office is capably equipped to handle a wide range of dental emergency situations, there are some scenarios that require treatment at an emergency room. If, for example, you believe you may have a broken jaw, we advise that you visit your local ER as soon as possible. The same is true for any bleeding that does not stop with pressure to the area with sterile gauze.
