When should I connect with a dentist offering emergency dentistry?
The team at The Dental Loft of Colorado Springs, Colorado, regularly works with patients to help them with dental needs, but there are times when the unexpected occurs. This is when it is essential that you reach out to an emergency dentist who provides immediate dentistry or same-day dentistry to address issues that develop between dental cleanings and examinations. This is known as emergency dentistry and is readily available with Dr. Sarah Keen.
What is emergency dentistry?
Dr. Keen describes dental emergencies as situations that arise where something occurs in the mouth and requires immediate attention. Our team of professionals will provide same-day service in cases where patients need care as soon as possible, regardless of whether or not they are current patients at The Dental Loft.
When should I contact an emergency dentist?
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, you must act fast and contact an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Waiting too long can make the problem worse and may even lead to tooth loss.
Some common dental emergencies that would require urgent care include:
- A tooth that has been knocked out
- A tooth that is cracked or broken
- Severe tooth pain
- Abscessed tooth
If you’re unsure whether your situation is considered an emergency, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. Give Dr. Keen of The Dental Loft a call. She can take the time to advise you on the best course of action and make a recommendation regarding your arrival at her practice.
