What is considered a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies can encompass a wide range of problems, from a cracked tooth to a loose filling. However, not all dental problems require immediate treatment. In general, any problem that causes ongoing pain or discomfort is considered an emergency. The following are some of the most common dental emergencies we see in our St. Paul office:

  • Dental abscesses (infections)
  • Fillings that have fallen out or other restorations
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Teeth that have been knocked loose or knocked out
  • Soft tissue injuries, such as those to the lips, gums, or palate

If you experience any of these problems, it is important to contact us right away. In some cases, emergency dental care may be required in order to save a tooth or prevent further damage. Even if you are not experiencing pain, it is important to contact us as soon as possible after an injury to your teeth to ensure that there is no long-term damage.

If you are unsure whether or not your problem qualifies as an emergency, it is always best to err on the side of caution and contact Brimhall Dentistry in St. Paul, MN. We will be able to assess the situation and provide you with the appropriate treatment.
