What Is Considered An Emergency?
Accidents and emergencies happen. We help you identify the emergency and prioritize your care. Please make an appointment to see Dr. Lamielle immediately if you experience:
- Severe, unbearable tooth pain
- Knocked-out teeth
- Severely cracked or broken tooth
- Injury inside the mouth
- Suddenly bleeding gums
- Teeth that are forced out of position
What Should You Do During An Emergency?
Pain is frequently associated with urgent dental needs, but not always. If you are unsure if you have an emergency situation, ask yourself these questions to assess your situation:
- Is the pain level mild?
- Are you bleeding from the mouth?
- Are your teeth substantially loose and in danger of falling out?
- Do you have any swelling in the mouth or facial area?
- Do you have any bulges, swelling or knots on your gums?
If you answer yes to any of the above, please contact us and describe exactly what has happened and what you are experiencing. We will help you determine when you need to be seen. Upon your visit, Dr. Lamielle will examine you to uncover the source of pain, use antibiotics to manage symptoms, and/or perform an extraction or other procedures if necessary.
