While regular dental cleanings have been postponed until further notice, Newbury Smiles remains open for those who are experiencing dental emergencies. However, what you think may be an emergency many not be an emergency at all, so to help you determine whether or not you need to come in for an emergency dental appointment, here are a few things to consider.
- Do you have severe pain that doesn’t go away with painkillers and other pain relieving methods?
- Have you had an accident that has caused an entire tooth to be knocked out, or has caused it to become loose?
- Is there an infection present? Signs will include: swelling, bleeding, and knots on the gum.
- Do you have uncontrollable bleeding from the mouth?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a dental emergency on your hands. Give us a call at 310-746-5202, and we’ll do our best to make sure that your emergency is taken care as quickly as possible.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and maintain your oral hygiene routine until we can see each other again.
