Dental emergencies can happen at any time, and sometimes they occur when you least expect themduring your favorite meal, a first date, or even in the middle of the night while you're in bed. So whether you chipped your tooth on a piece of hard candy or you have a never-ending toothache that disrupts your sleep, Dr. Jeffrey Tibbs can help you! Not only can he relieve your tooth pain and restore your smile’s function and beauty, but he can also help you avoid negative consequences and prevent future emergencies. 

When to See an Emergency Dentist 

Many signs point to needing an emergency dentist, such as:

  • Persistent toothache 
  • Bleeding in the mouth 
  • Swelling of the gums or face
  • Abscess or infection anywhere in the mouth 
  • Broken or lost tooth or restoration (i.e., fillings, crowns, dentures)
  • Damaged orthodontics (broken wire or bracket)
  • Continued swelling, bleeding, and pain after oral surgery 
  • Impacted wisdom tooth 

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to contact our Winston-Salem dental office. The longer you wait to treat a dental mishap, the worse it can get. It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to your smile’s health!
