When to See an Emergency Dentist

Published on April 23rd, 2019

Most of us know or have heard that it’s important to go to the dentist regularly for cleanings and checkups. But it’s less clear when you should see an emergency dentist in Chesterfield, MO. After all, if you haven’t gone to dental school, it can be difficult to know what constitutes an emergency worthy of going to see a dentist in Chesterfield, MO as soon as possible.

In this post, we’ll clear it up so you don’t waste any time hesitating if you’re experiencing a dental emergency.

General Guidelines: Persistent Pain and/or Bleeding

Generally speaking, any time you’re experiencing pain or bleeding that will not go away, it’s best to get to a dentist’s office as soon as possible. Even if the pain is not too severe, the fact that it isn’t going away may be a sign of something more serious. By going to a dentist in Chesterfield, MO, as soon as you can, you give yourself the best chance of preventing complications. The same thing goes for persistent bleeding.

Cracked, Broken, or Missing Teeth

Rushing to a dentist’s office is especially important if you or someone you know has had their tooth broken or knocked out. This is because the sooner you get to a dental professional after damaging your tooth, the better chance that he or she has to restore the tooth to its former state.

 

If in doubt, call a dentist right away; it’s better to be sure than to risk something serious.
