How do you know if you have a dental emergency? According to the American Dental Association (ADA), a dental emergency is when there's a risk of injury, infection, severe and tremendous pain. These things can require immediate action to stop the pain, the spread of disease, or bleeding.
The Dangers of Postponing Emergency Dental Care
Do not be tempted to ignore or numb the pain and deal with it. There are numerous risks to avoiding emergency dental care in Bonita Springs, including infection of the tooth, jaw, gums, lymph nodes, loss of teeth, gum tissue, and jawbone density. In some cases, injury and infection caused by dental issues can be life-threatening. You wouldn't ignore problems, like a broken bone or sudden onset of blindness in one eye, and ignoring the clear signs of problems with your teeth can be just as dangerous.
