COVID-19 Dental Emergencies – How to Get Help

A dental emergency is a situation that involves any tooth or mouth pain, swelling,
bleeding, a loose tooth, or injury occurrence. In many practices this includes patients of record as well as any NEW patient! Don’t think if you’re not a current patient you will not be served.
Most Dental Practice goals will be to minimize patients being taken to urgent care facilities for dental emergencies at this critical time. In most cases, dental emergencies cannot be treated by an urgent care provider anyway, only to place the patient on antibiotics or sutures if necessary or providing immediate temporary comfort.
