If you were asked right now what counted as a dental emergency, how would you answer the question? You’d likely say that any sort of tooth injury counts, but did you know there are other problems that definitely qualify as an emergency?

Let’s look at those.

Consistent toothache

If you have a tooth that’s consistently bothering you, you have a dental emergency on your hands. A toothache that doesn’t go away is a sign of a serious underlying issue. From a cavity to an abscess, a toothache that doesn’t quit is something to get looked at immediately.

Any tooth problems

If you play sports, or you just have some bad luck and hit your face hard and manage to chip, break, or fracture a tooth, don’t delay in visiting Dr. Jared Mayer, DMD and Kurt Bazilus, DDS here at Mountainside Family Dental in Phoenix, Arizona. If you want to restore your tooth after a break, or if the tooth itself pops out of socket, time is of the essence to make sure your tooth gets repaired quickly and you spend a minimal amount of time in pain from the broken tooth.

It’s important during any sort of tooth problem to remain calm and get to the dentist as quickly as possible.
