Is it a Dental Emergency?
The following symptoms usually indicate a dental emergency:
Bleeding within the mouth
Trauma to the mouth or face
Swelling within the mouth or face
Knots, bulges or swelling seen in the gums
If you experience one or more of these symptoms, you may have a dental emergency and should notify name immediately to describe the events leading up to the discomfort and what symptoms you may be experiencing. Sipping on ice water may help to alleviate pain until you see name. If you experience sensitivity with cold or simply breathing in air try breathing through your nasal airways instead and contact name’s office. Pain experienced while biting down may indicate an abscess which is a dental emergency. Contact name office for further instructions.
