Should I go to the dentist if I’m having pain?
Remember, social distancing is key to controlling the spread of Coronavirus. Also, the key to your optimal health is to make sure you don’t end up with dental infections. As someone who has first-hand experience of seeing patients suffer due to letting infections play out, we suggest all our patients visit the dentist if they experience pain, swelling or discomfort. Presently, dentists across the US have been recommended to see only those patients with dental emergencies and infection.
Some examples of dental emergencies are:
-Severe, throbbing pain in your jaw
-Dental treatment required prior to critical medical procedures
-Infection of the face with intra-oral or extra-oral swelling
-Trauma to the teeth, jaw
– Denture adjustment on radiation/oncology patients
– Denture adjustments or repairs when you can’t chew
