Not sure if your condition counts as a dental emergency? At our office, the definition of a dental emergency is simple. If you are experiencing a serious issue like oral pain, discomfort or bleeding and you’re not sure how to treat it on your own, your condition counts as a dental emergency.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry. If something feels wrong, it’s likely that you need professional dental care to treat the issue and prevent further complications.
There are a number of common dental emergencies. Toothaches are a common problem, and they usually indicate either a serious cavity or tooth infection, both of which are dental emergencies that should be treated sooner rather than later.
Bleeding gums are another common issue that can be caused by advanced cases of gum disease, or by cuts and lacerations to the gum tissue from an accident like a slip and fall.
Knocked-out teeth are also a common dental emergency. This is one of the most serious and time-sensitive dental emergencies. Your tooth can be splinted and re-attached, but it must be replaced within 1-2 hours, or it will die and we will not be able to save it.
First, call us for an appointment at 719-544-7672 as soon as possible. In the case of a knocked-out tooth, you should recover the tooth, rinse it, and place it in a container of cold milk to keep it from drying out. If you have a pulled-out piece of dental work like a filling or crown, put it in a plastic bag.
If you have time, treat bleeding with cotton balls, gauze, or clean paper towels. NSAIDs like ibuprofen and acetaminophen can help with pain and inflammation, and ice packs applied to your cheek can help with swelling. However, do not delay. Come to Rocky Mountain Dental Co. as soon as you can for a permanent solution to your dental emergency.
