Am I Experiencing a Dental Emergency?
If you believe that your injury or discomfort is urgent in nature, Dr. Rapport trusts your opinion and will make time to see you right away. However, if you’re still unsure whether or not you need emergency care, here are some of the most common situations we see:
When a tooth has been partially or fully dislodged (knocked out)
When a tooth has a severe, lingering toothache
When a dental crown, filling, or other restoration has been damaged and/or lost
When an object or piece of food is stuck between the teeth and cannot be dislodged
When the gum tissue, lips, or jaw is injured
When your mouth is bleeding
