Common Dental Emergencies We Treat
Dental emergencies involving your oral health run the gamut from a chipped tooth to dental trauma but what they all have in common is that you want relief and resolution as soon as possible.
Some common problems our emergency dentists in Castle Pines treats are:
- Tooth pain
- Jaw pain or swelling
- Puffy, bleeding, or inflamed gums
- Infected or abscessed teeth
- Broken or fractured tooth
- Lost crown or tooth filling
- Dental trauma
Critical Dental Emergencies That Require Prompt Treatment
All your oral health concerns matter to us, but not all dental emergencies require immediate treatment. The most critical to resolve are tooth pain, jaw pain or swelling, and dental trauma.
Relief for Severe Tooth Pain and Infections
An excruciating toothache could indicate many things but is always a critical dental emergency. You may have an infected tooth that requires a root canal or a deep cavity that's reached a tooth's nerve.
In either case, prompt dental treatment relieves your pain and can make the difference between saving and losing the tooth. Until you see us, you can find relief with an OTC pain reliever like ibuprofen or holding a cold compress on and off your face at 20-minute intervals.
Treatment for Dental Trauma
Dental trauma that involves an injury to your teeth, gums, lips, or tongue is critical to resolve as quickly as possible. In the case of a knocked-out tooth, contact us immediately. There’s a small window of two hours in which we might successfully re-implant the tooth.
If you have suffered an injury to your face or jaw or are bleeding excessively, call 911 or go to the emergency room.
Help for Broken Teeth, Lost Crowns, and Tooth Fillings
A broken tooth is unattractive and annoying, but unless it broke off below the gumline or you are in pain, it may be okay to wait a day or two. The same goes for lost dental work like crowns or fillings; prompt treatment is crucial, but you might not need immediate treatment. Call us, so we can determine how soon we need to see you.
If you are in pain, our dentists will make your emergency a priority. Call Scheich Family Dentistry at (720) 733-7799, so we can get you the prompt treatment and relief you need.
