Do You Have A Dental Emergency?
First of all, differentiate between temporary pain and an emergency situation. When you are experiencing severe pain, infection or swelling, active bleeding or trauma, it is important to have it addressed as soon as possible. If you have swelling or infection it is important to have it looked at and assessed as you may need an antibiotic. If you have had a tooth knocked out, it requires immediate treatment. The quicker your avulsed tooth is put back in place, the higher the chance of it healing. Put the tooth in a cup of milk and contact us immediately, or better yet, put the tooth back in place yourself. If the tooth has fallen into the dirt, do not scrub the tooth but gently rinse it off.
What Should You Do?
Dental pain can be severe and interfere with daily life, like eating and drinking and your sleep; reach out to us quickly if you feel you have an emergency. When you call us, we will be able to better understand your symptoms, and guide you through next steps. Depending on your pain and the severity of your situation, we will try to see you the same day. We allow special time in our day to treat patients who are in an emergency situation or are in discomfort. If you reach our office after hours, we would guide you to the Huntsville Hospital Emergency Department to have your concerns assessed. Make sure to follow up with your family dentist afterwards as further treatment may be required.
