It is impossible to know when you will need emergency dental care, but when your dentist makes themselves available when you need them most, it can take a lot of stress off your shoulders. Especially when waiting for the next available appointment at your dental office isn’t an option. At Bond Family and Implant Dentistry we provide our patients with same day appointments and the best emergency dental care in the Longmont, CO area.
- Severe Pain – There are several reasons why you may be experiencing severe dental pain from having a broken tooth to severe tooth decay, yet, either way, it is important to get treatment right away. Going to a dentist that offers same day appointments can mean not having to suffer until it is convenient for your dentist to see you. Even if you may need a follow up appointment for treatment, we will see you as soon as possible to at least make you more comfortable and stop the pain.
- Broken or missing tooth – Those that play sports or live an active lifestyle, have poor dental hygiene, or suffer from bruxism can be more prone to breaking or losing teeth. When this happens, try to place the tooth back in the socket, or keep it safe until you can be seen by your dentist. It is also important not to rinse the tooth since there may be remaining tissue that can help us reattach it.
- Broken or missing fillings and crowns – Though it is rare, fillings and crowns may become loose, crack, or fall out leaving the root of your tooth exposed. Not only is this often extremely painful, but if left untreated can actually cause more damage to the tooth. If your filling or crown is dislodged, see your dentist right away so it can be replaced quickly and avoid eating anything that could get stuck in the tooth before your appointment.
