Chris Haag: The most common dental emergencies
that we typically see are going to range anywhere from a toothache, just cropped up out of the
blue. Oftentimes we find it’s some decay that’s
been sitting under the surface for a while and it just reaches a threshold and starts
to bother. Sometimes we’ll see abscesses, tooth where
the decay is much more serious and we’ll see swelling and pain with that. Those situations require a root canal to be
remedied. Another thing that we’ll see is trauma. With young people super-involved in athletics
today, from soccer to baseball, we see kids who will take a bump to the mouth and chip
a tooth. So those are the main areas.
