3 Signs You Might Need Emergency Dentistry

In some cases, it’s easy to tell you to need to visit a dentist ASAP. A mouth injury that’s caused by a broken tooth is one example. But what if you have a loose tooth, a toothache, or you’ve got a tooth that’s suddenly gone numb? Something that might not seem that serious on the surface could lead to severe consequences if not treated as quickly as possible.

Loose Tooth

It’s typically not that big of a deal when a child gets a loose tooth, of course. But when it happens to an adult, that’s another story. Adults should never have this issue. An injury is one of the more common reasons this happens, but it could also be a sign of an infection. If that’s the case, it needs to be checked as quickly as possible to make sure it doesn’t spread. You’ll need to get to the dentist as soon as you can.

Severe Toothache

A severe toothache can be miserable, interfering with your quality of life. The pain can be so great, in fact, that you’ll find it hard to concentrate on even the most basic tasks. Getting to a dentist right away can bring you the relief you need. Your dentist can also determine why this pain is occurring so that you don’t have to deal with it again.


Have you had a mild toothache for a while, and all of a sudden the tooth has gone numb? That’s a sure sign you need to get to your dentist as quickly as you can. This could also be a sign that the tooth has become infected.
