Identifying Dental Emergencies

The painful truth is that about 25% of us will suffer a dental emergency of some king during our lives. It can often be difficult to decide if the problem you have warrants an emergency appointment, here are some guidelines to help you decide.


Pain is your body's signal that something is wrong. If you feel pain in your mouth or jaw , make an appointment with us for an examination. This is the best way to decide the extent of your problem.

Fractured tooth
