Dental emergencies do not always involve pain, although this is a common signal that something needs to be looked at. Pain can originate from the tooth, surrounding tissues or can have the sensation of originating in the teeth but be caused by an independent source (orofacial pain and toothache). Depending on the type of pain experienced an experienced clinician can determine the likely cause and can treat the issue as each tissue type gives different messages in a dental emergency.
At Metropolitan Dental Care, we diagnose and treat all types of dental emergencies including the following:
- Fracture of one or more teeth with displacement or partial extrusions
- Infection with abscesses and / or swelling of the face
- Severe pain of dental origin
- A visible loss of filling, crown, onlay, or veneer
If you have any concerns about a possible dental emergency, please do not hesitate to contact our capable team at Metropolitan Dental Care.
