When should I visit dental emergency services?
The regional dental emergency services of the hospital district are intended for patients who need urgent treatment of acute conditions of the teeth and mouth.
Criteria for calling the help desk include:
- intense pain of the teeth and mouth
- sudden swellings and inflammations
- injuries to the teeth, mucous membranes of the mouth and to the jaw
- general symptoms (like fever) associated with dental and oral diseases
- complications (like bleeding) after dental procedures
Patients who do not fulfill the criteria for emergency care will be directed elsewhere. For example, a simple tooth fracture or a tooth filling that falls out do not require emergency dental care.
