How do I know if I am experiencing a dental emergency?

man holding jaw | Lake Worth FL DentistOral health can be unpredictable and occasionally dental emergencies arise – often at the most inconvenient times. Patients sometimes put off calling our Lake Worth, FL dental office because they are not sure if they are experiencing a true dental emergency or not.

Types of Dental Emergencies

A good rule to follow is that any tooth pain indicates a dental condition that requires our attention. Pain is your body’s way of asking for help. A broken tooth, lost restoration, or any dramatic change in your oral health that lingers more than a day or two can also require a trip to our dental office. When in doubt, just give us a call. Our highly trained team can help you determine if an emergency dental exam is necessary.
