Treat Pain or Bleeding as a Dental Emergency
Dental emergencies are frightening, especially if you haven’t been in a similar situation before. If you experience dental trauma and are not sure whether you need to seek dental care, ask yourself the following question: Am I experiencing any intense dental pain or bleeding? These conditions are never normal, so if the answer to this question is yes you should seek emergency dental care from a professional like Dr. Maroon immediately.

By seeking emergency dentistry treatment as quickly as possible, you can minimize damage to your smile. This allows Dr. Maroon to evaluate your situation so he can then suggest possible solutions to quickly treat and protect your smile from any further damage that may happen as a result of the trauma.
