Emergency Dental Care Overview
A dental emergency can happen at any time, whether through an accident, injury, or trauma. It is important to identify what to do when you experience an oral injury. Some typical dental and oral injuries include, cracked, broken, or knocked-out teeth. All of these can cause significant pain and/or nerve damage. At Contemporary Dentistry, we provide emergency dental care to repair your smile and eradicate pain, while also preventing further infections. We always make your dental emergency a priority and Dr. Kathy Jacobsen provides quality care to get control of the situation before it gets worse. If you experience a dental emergency that consists of bleeding from the mouth, severe pain, loose teeth, being hit in the face or mouth, facial swelling, or bulging in your gums, contact our Gilbert, AZ office immediately.
Best Candidates for Emergency Dental Care
Anyone with a true emergency is a candidate for our emergency care services. As you can imagine, the scenarios are nearly endless. From chipped or cracked teeth to minor fractures or missing teeth and nerve damage. If the crack is severe, if a large piece is missing, or if you suspect nerve damage, it’s important to seek help immediately. If it is only a minor chip or fracture, it can probably wait until regular office hours. Other incidents can include a toothache, cavities, loose fillings, loose crowns, or swollen or infected gums. We also treat other types of emergencies like swollen jaws, a bitten lip or tongue, or even an object stuck painfully between your teeth. Dr. Jacobsen and her staff understand how traumatic it can be to have a dental emergency and have procedures in place to take care of you.
