What is a dental emergency?
At Chesterfield Valley Dental, we ask that you call us any time you have a question about something that’s happening with your oral health. We would rather have a nice chat with you and find out you don’t have a pressing need than have you suffer needlessly. If needed, Dr. Rahm is an emergency dentist that makes room for these kinds of appointments.
What are typical dental emergencies?
Some dental emergencies are obvious, such as having a tooth knocked out while playing sports. This is a situation that needs to be dealt with immediately if we are to save the tooth.
Another obvious emergency is tooth pain of any kind. A mild toothache may be put off for a day or two if necessary, but severe pain that prevents you from functioning is a sign that something serious is happening in the tooth and needs to be addressed.
If you break a crown or lose a filling, you may not need to drop everything and run to our emergency dental clinic in Chesterfield, MO. But we should see you as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the tooth.
Please don’t ever hesitate to call us if you have questions or something is bothering you. We will listen to your concerns so we can provide relief and help you get the answers you need.
