DENTIST IN Reidsville

Emergency Dental Care

We may be dentists, and we may be passionate about what we do, but we know that a trip to the dentist isn’t exactly at the top of most people’s fun list. It’s because most people don’t like visiting the dentist if they can avoid it that so many of the patients we see in Reidsville, North Carolina end up suffering unnecessarily or developing what would have been preventable dental issues; they put a visit off when really they should be coming in to see us right away.

The thing is, most people know they need to come in for a dental checkup every 3-6 months and have their teeth regularly cleaned by a hygienist, so they will make an effort to do that, but they don’t know what constitutes a dental emergency, so they leave it and leave it until the consequences become serious. 

That’s why we’re going to take a look at what constitutes a dental emergency, and how you can get the emergency dental care you need.

What is a dental emergency?

It can be difficult to know if you are experiencing a dental emergency, but according to stats from the American Family Physician, 22 percent of Americans will have experienced oral/dental pain in the last six months alone. Although pain is not always an indicator of a dental emergency, it quite often is, and if you are experiencing severe dental pain, at the very least, getting some advice from one of our dentists in Reidsville, North Carolina is a good idea.

Apart from dental pain, what are some other common dental emergencies?
