Ignoring an oral problem can lead to something serious. We don’t realize the severity of the problem until the condition escalates.
There are several signs of a dental emergency:
If a Filling Comes Out: This may happen if you bite on a hard food item, a filling can also fall out if a new decay has surrounded the area around it. See a dentist immediately if you run into this.
Inflamed or Red Gums: Your gums can swell or become red due to an infection or gingivitis. This happens when you don’t maintain a good oral hygiene. It can lead to periodontal disease if you don’t get it treated right now.
A Toothache: Decayed teeth or a dental abscess causes a toothache which can be unbearable and can cause discomfort while eating.
Sensitive Teeth: Your teeth could be sensitive to hot or cold beverages. Don’t ignore it when that happens, consult a dentist right away.
