A dental emergency can take on just about any shape and form. It can range from a nagging toothache to a broken jaw, and a true emergency is likely to catch you completely off guard. However, as alarming as an emergency can be, it is possible to survive it with your nerves and your sanity intact by taking a few steps to prepare in advance.
Start by keeping the name, address, and phone number of your emergency dentist saved in your mobile phone at all times. In the event of an emergency situation, you can save a great deal of time by having the appropriate phone number on hand.
Also, since a dental problem can arise at any time of the day, night, or weekend, your dentist will provide you with specific instructions for accessing care. A dental professional may be on call for emergencies, or you may be directed to the nearest emergency facility for urgent care. Don’t hesitate to contact the dental office, or call 911 immediately if you are in doubt.
