The only thing worse than waking up with a toothache is wondering if and when you should call your emergency dentist or even if your problem counts as an emergency.
At Platte Canyon Dental, we always tell our patients that if it is a problem that worries them, they should always call us first. There are indeed degrees of dental problems, some more critical than others. But it is always best to call us so we can determine what type of dental emergency it is and put your mind at ease.
What Is a Dental Emergency?
In dentistry, “true” emergencies are considered tooth pain or jaw swelling that needs to be resolved or other problems like abscessed teeth that require treatment to save a tooth. Of course, in real life, your child’s broken tooth or your lost crown is just as concerning as someone else’s painful tooth.
Dr. Christina Linn is an experienced emergency dentist in Littleton, CO, who is equipped to handle any urgent dental problem you or your children face. She commonly repairs broken teeth, relieves toothaches, saves infected teeth, and replaces loose dental crowns.
