Do I need to visit the emergency dentist for dental sensitivity?

Dental sensitivity is a common oral health problem that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a dental emergency on your hands. Some ways you can tell whether or not you should visit our office for urgent care for this issue is if you recognize any of the following symptoms or signs along with the sensitivity:

  • A pimple-like bump on your gums
  • Persistent, throbbing pain
  • Swelling
  • The sensitivity occurs after trauma

If you’re concerned but aren’t sure what to do, feel free to contact your emergency dentist in Bellingham so our team can provide you with over-the-phone guidance.

How soon do I need to see an emergency dentist?

We recommend not waiting to visit your dentist in Bellingham if you have a dental emergency on your hands. Call our office immediately, and we’ll be sure to fit you in our schedule as soon as possible. More severe emergencies that require immediate treatment include knocked-out teeth, throbbing toothaches caused by infections, and oral trauma that results in a damaged tooth.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency outside of office hours?

If you have a dental emergency outside of our office hours, we recommend calling us anyways and leaving a message. If the emergency is affecting your ability to swallow, breathe, or you believe your jaw is broken, you should visit your local emergency room as soon as possible. However, be sure to contact our office once you receive treatment so we can still schedule an appointment to address any lingering dental concerns. As soon as we receive your message, we’ll contact you and fit you in our schedule for as soon as possible.
