Though broken teeth, chipped teeth, or knocked-out teeth definitely constitute dental emergencies, there are other situations that require urgent dental care. These can include lost dental crowns, loosened tooth fillings, and harsh soft-tissue injuries of the tongue, lips, cheeks, and gums.
One of the key indicators that a dental situation requires attention is severe pain. Whether it stems from a toothache, a gum abscess, or something else entirely, it is important for a member of the dental care team at Dakota Dental to discover the cause so it can be treated.
Another indicator that a dental situation is a dental emergency is if fever, gum irritation and swelling, or dry sockets occur after dental work — including wisdom teeth removal. Though Dakota Dental family dentists take full precautions to ensure dental services and procedures are done correctly the first time, there is always a slim chance of a complication. If you believe a complication has developed after dental care, call Dakota Dental immediately.
At Dakota Dental, time is set aside every day for dental emergency treatments. If you are experiencing severe pain or discomfort, contact Dakota Dental as soon as possible to reserve a special dental emergency appointment. Simply call 952-431-5774, and Dakota Dental will help you receive the dental care you need.
A dental emergency does not automatically mean that a person will permanently lose a tooth. Rather, it simply means that a situation has arisen that requires immediate dental care. At Dakota Dental, the emergency dentists will work quickly and efficiently to achieve the best possible outcome following a dental emergency or sports injury to the mouth.
