The unfortunate answer to this is: It depends. The good news is we’re just a phone call away and are happy to help you determine if you need immediate treatment. However, emergencies can typically be classified by symptoms that include severe pain, excessive swelling, or continuous bleeding.
You should see a dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning. Even if you keep up with proper brushing techniques, there’s still a chance you could be missing spots without realizing it. A hygienist can also remove tartar you wouldn’t be able to remove at home.
Make an appointment! We’ll be able to diagnose and treat the cause of the tooth pain. If it’s mild to moderate pain, over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen can help ease the discomfort until your visit. If the pain is severe, you’ll need emergency treatment.
We will typically take X-rays once per year as long as your teeth are healthy. More might be required if you come in needing treatment.
Brushing and flossing, of course! But we do also offer sealants that act as an extra barrier for cavity-prone patients.
We won’t be able to determine this until you see us for a consultation. The dentist will examine your oral region for health issues and check for jawbone deterioration.
