Dental health is an integral component of our overall well-being. While we often focus on routine check-ups, there are times when unforeseen dental issues arise, necessitating immediate attention. In these situations, Dental Horizons in Longmont, CO, can provide emergency treatment on the same day.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

Not all dental issues require immediate care, but certain conditions shouldn’t be delayed:

  • Severe Toothache: A sharp, throbbing pain that doesn't subside could indicate an abscess or infection.
  • Broken or Chipped Tooth: Any significant damage to a tooth, especially if it exposes the inner pulp, can be painful and needs prompt treatment.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: Such occurrences can increase sensitivity or pain and risk further tooth damage.
  • Dental Abscess: This is an infection at the base of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth. Symptoms might include swollen gums, pain, and pus.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: Immediate attention can increase the chances of saving the tooth.
  • Oral Bleeding: Excessive or persistent bleeding after a traumatic injury.

Treatments involved

The treatment you receive depends on the nature of the emergency. Some common treatments include pain management, often with over-the-counter or prescription painkillers. Antibiotics can treat infections. Fillings or crowns may be placed to repair damaged teeth, and root canals may be performed for severe infections. In worst-case scenarios, severely damaged or infected teeth may need to be extracted.

What are the benefits of emergency dentistry?

One of the primary benefits is rapid relief from pain, allowing you to continue your daily routines. Addressing dental emergencies promptly can prevent minor issues from escalating into severe infections or other complications. In knocked-out or broken teeth, timely treatment can often save the natural tooth, avoiding the need for replacements.

While we hope never to need emergency dentistry, it’s comforting to know that when the unexpected occurs, you can contact us and be seen the same day.
