Possible Symptoms of an Emergency
Dental emergencies aren’t the same as medical emergencies. While the emergency room may expect you to be in immediate danger, our only requirement is that you think your issue is an emergency. If you’re in pain or have dental discomfort, you are entitled to get out of both!
Whether you’re in pain or not, there are a few other ways to identify a dental problem as an emergency:
- A loose tooth or knocked-out permanent tooth
- Bleeding from your gums, lips, or tongue
- Injury to your mouth, including a cracked or broken tooth
While we definitely consider bleeding from the mouth to be a dental emergency, bleeding that will not stop is a medical emergency. If your mouth is bleeding and will not stop, please visit an emergency room as soon as you can.
Pay attention to your dental health and make it a priority to visit our dentists for urgent care. Pain does occasionally go away, but that doesn’t mean your problem has been solved. It often means that your tooth has died and that a worse infection is on the horizon. We can treat whatever has happened and ensure it doesn’t get worse.
And if you are enduring pain and discomfort because you’re afraid of the dentist, we can help! We have a low-stress atmosphere and three safe sedation options. Call Yellowstone Family Dental at 406-245-7026 if you need an appointment for a dental emergency.
