Broken teeth, dislodged teeth and jaw swelling – these are just a few of the dental emergencies people commonly experience. If you need emergency dental care, call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656. Although we are not a 24-hour dental practice, we will do our best to set an appointment for you the day of your emergency. It’s important to treat dental emergencies promptly to prevent them from becoming more serious. If you believe you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or go to an emergency room.
What Constitutes a Dental Emergency
A dental emergency occurs when trauma causes tooth loss or damage. Sudden tooth pain, jaw swelling or the presence of an abscess may also qualify as dental emergencies and should be brought too the immediate attention of our dentists.
Some of the more common dental emergencies include:
- Cracked tooth
- Jaw swelling or pain
- Tooth or teeth that have been knocked out
- Abscessed tooth
- Chipped tooth
- Severe toothache
- Teeth that have suddenly become loose
We can also call in prescriptions for certain dental emergencies.
Don’t Ignore Tooth Pain
When dental problems like these are left untreated, they may become more serious. Infections from an abscessed tooth or in the gums can spread to other parts of the body if they are not stopped. Broken or knocked out teeth can be a scary thing to experience, but we’ll help restore those teeth and repair any damage that has occurred. You do not have to suffer because of dental problems. Our dentists and staff will work quickly to help you heal.
