What is a Dental Emergency?
That may sound like a strange question, but the truth is, some dental issues fall into the category of “dental urgency” and not a true dental emergency. The following list of dental emergencies will help you decide if your issue is a true emergency for which you should seek immediate treatment:
- Accidents involving the mouth, teeth, or gums including sports injuries and teeth that are cracked, fractured, displaced, or otherwise loosened or knocked out of the mouth.
- Infection around a tooth, in the gum, or elsewhere in the mouth/jaw area can become very painful and can lead to serious health complications quickly if not treated.
- Pain from a severe toothache or infection that keeps you awake or interferes with your daily activities.
Of course, these aren’t the only issues that constitute a true dental emergency; however, these are the most common causes. If you feel you have a dental emergency, we welcome you to call our office so that we can help. In some cases, we can see you right away. If your issue is a dental urgency such as a loose filling, sensitivity in the teeth or gums, or a loose crown, we may be able see you right away or book you into a next-day appointment that suits your schedule. The best thing to do is to call if you feel you have an emergency is to call our office at (303) 974-7964 so that we can discuss your concerns.
