While some transient sensitivity of teeth can be normal from time to time, intense pain or constant pain should be reported to a dentist as soon as possible.
There are many reasons you may experience dental pain, including:
- a deep cavity
- a lost filling or crown
- a broken or cracked tooth
- an abscessed tooth
- an impacted tooth
- an injury to the mouth or teeth
- an object is stuck between your teeth
If you are experiencing dental pain or have an urgent dental concern, please do not delay in contacting our office. Dr. Thrall has made it a priority in his office to see patients who require urgent dental care as soon as possible.
What to Expect
To diagnose the cause of your emergency, an x-ray will be taken and the dentist will examine the painful area. Many times, the problem can be fixed that same day. If not, Dr. Thrall will come up with a treatment plan to address the issue. If your dental emergency involves a tooth that fractured, a tooth that has been knocked out, or a crown that has come unglued, please bring the tooth or the crown so that the dentist can evaluate if it can be restored.
Call us at (580) 338-5541 to schedule your emergency dental appointment.
