Here at Capozzi Dental and the Verber Dental Group, we offer emergency dental care for patients within the Central PA area.

Patients may not know what exactly warrants a “dental emergency”. When left untreated, some situations can lead to life-threatening situations. It is our goal to educate you and get you in as soon as possible if we believe you are experiencing a dental emergency.

Dental Emergencies Explained

A Dental Emergency is a situation in which you essentially feel your life could be threatened. These situations are time-sensitive and must be taken care of right away. An Urgent Dental Procedure is a less timely dental matter that must be fixed.

To give you an idea of what types of instances would count as an emergency, we have laid out some of the most common ones here:

  • Loosened or knocked-out tooth/teeth
  • Large crack or chip in the tooth
  • Dental trauma
  • Lost fillings or damaged dental work
  • Dental abscesses
  • Jawline fractures
  • Dental swelling

Here are some examples of symptoms that are urgent and should be addressed but are NOT always dental emergencies:

  • Consistent foul odor coming from the mouth
  • Toothaches
  • TMJ disorder
  • Infected or inflamed gums
  • Jaw pain

Keep in mind that some of the more urgent symptoms can lead to a dental emergency, so be sure to check in with a dental health professional as soon as signs start to show themselves. Acting quickly is the safest option and can save you an expensive headache down the line.
