Dr. Asra Javeed and her staff provide emergency dental care in Virginia Beach, VA.
What is a Dental Emergency?
Basically, a dental emergency is any problem that necessitates immediate treatment by a dentist to save a tooth, stop continuous bleeding or relieve serious pain. Some of the more recognizable dental emergencies are:
- A knocked out tooth
- A tooth that is suddenly loose or out of alignment
- Teeth that are cracked or fractured
- An injury inside the mouth, such as a cut or puncture wound
- A severe toothache, which may indicate infection or an abscess
- A temporary crown that is broken
