Emergency Dental Care
Dentist Glen Allen
If you are in need of emergency dental care, please don’t hesitate to call Hickory Park Dentistry.
A dental emergency is an injury to your teeth or gums that can be potentially serious. Ignoring one can increase the risk of permanent damage. For all dental emergencies, it is important to contact our office as soon as the injury occurs. We can help.
Several factors can cause the need for emergency care, including:
- Swollen gums
- Infected gums
- General tooth decay
- Abscessed teeth
Damage such as broken dentures, lost crowns, chipped teeth, loose fillings, etc. should also be addressed as soon as possible. Leaving issues such as these untreated can progressively contribute to poor oral health, which can cause serious health issues.
If you encounter a dental emergency, always contact our dental office as soon as possible. We can provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to care for your mouth or may ask you to come into the office. If you have any additional dental emergency questions, be sure to contact us.
