What Is A Dental Emergency?

The category of “dental emergency” includes more things than you may think! While some emergencies like bleeding gums or knocked-out teeth are very obvious, lots of other things like toothaches, objects lodged between the teeth, and pulled-out dental work also require immediate dental care.

Not sure if you need immediate treatment? Our advice is simple. If you think that your issue requires immediate emergency care, you’re probably right! So just give us a call at (719) 282-6636 to tell us about your issue, and we can schedule you for same-day or after-hours care right away.

Take Steps To Treat Pain, Discomfort & Bleeding

If your mouth is bleeding, you can use clean cotton balls or paper towels to absorb blood, which should slow within 45 minutes to an hour. Over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help with discomfort. Placing an ice pack on the cheek for 10 minutes at a time can also help with pain and swelling. These are temporary steps, though. It’s important to come to Tuttle Family Dentistry ASAP for a permanent solution to your emergency.
