What to Do During a Dental Emergency

Posted By: Uptown Comprehensive Dentistry and Prosthodontics

Dental emergencies are inconvenient and stressful, not to mention scary sometimes. When you have a tooth that is broken or knocked out, you need solutions fast!

If you or a loved one is experiencing a broken tooth or a toothache, we encourage you to contact your emergency dentist in Aurora, CO right away at (303) 627-5755 for prompt care.

Contact Your Dentist First During an Emergency

Even if you're not sure you have a real emergency on your hands, always contact your dentist first. Hospital emergency rooms are not adequately equipped for tooth emergencies, so you can save valuable time and money by seeking guidance from your dentist first.

Your dentist will help you determine if you need immediate assistance if you are unsure about your tooth emergency. Some of the situations your Aurora emergency dentist can help with are:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Lost or broken dental fillings, crowns, or bridges
  • Dislodged or knocked-out teeth
  • Dental infections or toothaches

You Can Prevent Many Dental Emergencies

Did you know that there are actually measures you can take to prevent dental emergencies? It's true!

Regular teeth cleanings and checkups with your dentist are one way to ensure that your teeth, gums, and current restorations are healthy. These appointments allow you to treat problems like tooth decay and gum disease as early as possible before more significant problems occur.

If you notice wear on your teeth, or you wake up with headaches or a tender jaw, you might grind your teeth at night. Wearing a plastic night guard is comfortable, and it protects your teeth from the damage caused by teeth grinding that can result in cracked, worn, or damaged teeth.
