Tooth pain always means something is happening beneath the surface. Most times, this means an infection that may require root canal therapy to save the tooth.

Never try to outlast your tooth pain! It may only get worse.

Other ways to tell if a dental emergency is happening, include:

  • Bleeding, tender, or swollen gums
  • Abscess on the gums
  • Injury to the mouth
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Broken or loose filling or crown
  • Chipped, broken, or cracked tooth
  • Constant bad breath even after brushing
  • Severe tooth pain

This is just a small list; there are many kinds of emergency scenarios that are too numerous to list. 

If your particular situation isn't on the list, contact our Winston-Salem, NC dental office so we can arrange an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey J. Tibbs.
