Visit the dentist or wait?
Tooth pain, discomfort, visible tooth decay, concern: we all need to see a dentist when such situations arise. In some cases, it is possible to wait until the next follow-up appointment while in other circumstances, an immediate consultation is necessary.
How to identify truly urgent cases?
Waiting too long to see your dentist after an incident might limit the treatment options available to you.
Here are some situations that require immediate attention:
- Broken tooth;
- Knocked out (avulsed) tooth;
- Swelling of the cheeks;
- Pain preventing you from sleeping;
- Following a dental trauma;
- A mouth injury that does not heal.
Some situations, without being urgent, require the advice of an oral health professional within a fairly short time.
