23 Apr What is a dental emergency?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most dental offices have put their team and patient’s health as the top priority and are only open for dental emergencies.
So what is a dental emergency? Here is a list of typical symptoms of a dental emergency:
- A crown that has fallen off
If you experience any of these symptoms, you should contact your dental office immediately. They are your best resource on how to treat and manage your dental emergency. If you chipped or broke a tooth, call your dental office and discuss the situation with them. It is likely that your dentist will want to see you and visit about treatment options.
Many dental offices have limited hours and may not be available immediately. If you feel you need to be seen right away and are unable to get a hold of your dental office, try reaching out to another office. Remember that your dentist is here to help you during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dentists are trying their best to keep patients out of emergency rooms to both limit your exposure to the virus as a patient and also to help conserve essential hospital and clinic resources for those battling the virus.
