Just like with other medical emergencies you cannot help when you need services;

Dentists are available to take care of emergency  dental procedures 24/7, you just have to know where to find one.

Most people assume that dentists are only available during regular business hours to do routine exams and cleaning, but almost all cities have emergency dentists on call to take care of emergencies.

So what is an emergency?  Well, the first factor in determining if you have an emergency is your level of pain.

If you have relatively no pain odds are that you can wait until the next day to go in.  But if you have a high level of pain you should contact the emergency dentist.

Pain is going to make it difficult for you to sleep, eat, or drink.  It will ruin your night.

Ignoring a dental problem will make it worse.  When it comes to tooth decay, infection, cracked/chipped teeth, or broken dental work it should all be taken care of as soon as possible.

Especially in the case of an infection, if the infection spreads it could be life threatening.  If previously existing dental work falls out or breaks you should go in right away to get it redone so you don’t risk further damage to your dentin or roots.

If you even think you’re having a dental emergency it is best to call and get a hold of a dental professional.  They can give you advice and recommend treatment right away, or waiting until the next day for treatment.

Either way, you’re going to want to know how to get in contact with that dentist and get your problems taken care of quickly.
