Dr. Bruce Matthews, DDS

What is considered a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is an urgent problem with your oral health that requires prompt treatment. One example of a dental emergency in Wilmington, DE is a painful tooth infection or abscess that might require root canal treatment.

Some tooth emergencies are more urgent than others, which is why we recommend that you contact Dr. Matthews as soon as you notice a problem. Our experienced dental team will listen to your concerns, ask about your symptoms, and determine if we need to see you right away.

Common Dental Emergencies

We always leave extra time in our daily schedule to accommodate dental emergencies, and if you are in pain, we will see you the same day. Common dental emergencies we treat at our Wilmington dental office are:

  • Tooth pain
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Broken, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Infected or abscessed teeth
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Food stuck between teeth
  • Dental trauma

If your emergency requires further treatment, our schedule may not allow us to treat it on the same day. In this case, we will ensure your situation is stable, and you are comfortable until our next available appointment.
