Only you know if you or your child needs emergency dental care. DC Dental Spa is here to support you no matter what.
For patients that experience an accident or another type of trauma to their mouth, it’s always a good idea to get a checkup with your dentist even if you’re not experiencing symptoms that you think need emergency care. Sometimes, x-rays can reveal an injury or issue that hasn’t caused symptoms yet.
Even if you’ve been to the emergency room for an accident or injury to your oral cavity, follow up with your experienced dentist who can conduct a more detailed exam of your teeth and gums to look for any issues.
How can you know if you have a dental emergency? Generally, intense pain, swelling, bleeding, or broken teeth or jaw injuries will require dental care as soon as possible.
If you have any questions about how soon you should be seen, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at DC Dental Spa. Simply give us a call and let us know what’s going on. Based on your symptoms and level of discomfort, we can recommend that you come in as soon as possible or whether you feel you can wait until the next available appointment.
Our dentists can repair your filling, treat infections, and even assist with jaw injuries or broken teeth. We have experience treating a wide variety of dental emergencies for both adults and children.
