How To Know If You Have a Dental Emergency

Although dental emergencies are quite common, it’s important to know if your situation is truly a dental emergency or not. Some things can wait, while others can’t. There are also some instances where you’ll want to head to the emergency room instead of the dentist’s office. Knowing which path to choose can make all the difference.

If any of the following scenarios applies to you, contact James W. Mellert D.D.S., your emergency dentist in Torrance, right away.

Have you lost a tooth?

Are you bleeding from the mouth?

Are you in severe pain?

Do you have signs of an infection?

Did you sustain a jaw injury?

Do you have extreme tooth sensitivity?

When Should You Go Straight To the Emergency Room?

It’s important to know when you should go to the dentist and when your emergency should really be handled at a hospital. Although every situation is different, if you have any of the following symptoms or injuries, you’re better off to head straight to the emergency room.

  • Jaw fracture
  • Serious cuts or lacerations
  • Jaw dislocation
  • Serious infection that is affecting breathing or swallowing
  • Excess swelling combined with fever or chills
