If it hurts, it’s an emergency. Quick treatment improves the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth. Any obvious damage to a tooth should be treated as soon as possible. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing more problems in the future. Sometimes grinding teeth, or clenching your teeth, can mimic pain like a severe toothache or TMJ problems. This can be corrected by a custom mouthguard.
The same is true of a lost filling or crown. Even if you don’t have any symptoms, the tooth has lost its support and it could easily become damaged. Your oral health is important to us. If you are experiencing any form of pain or discomfort, please book an appointment to have one of our team members correct the issue. We are happy to offer same day appointments.
