A dental emergency can cost you sleep, force you to change your plans, and even threaten your health. At Oakwood Dental, your emergency dentist in Castle Rock, CO will take measures to see you as soon as possible, so you can get back to living your best life and enjoying your time.

Common Dental Emergencies

There are too many possibilities to write about every dental emergency scenario in this blog, but typically a dental emergency includes one or more of the following:

  • Broken, damaged or lost tooth or restoration
  • Toothache or jaw pain
  • Gum or mouth swelling
  • Bleeding or oral injury

If you experience something not on the above list—an oral health change that causes you concern—we encourage you to reach out to our dental office. A caring team member can schedule an emergency appointment or provide instructions to remedy the situation.

How to See Your Dentist During a Dental Emergency

We recommend contacting our dental office at the first signs of a dental emergency. For example, you may notice tooth sensitivity increasing throughout the day. Don’t wait! This type of discomfort can become severe pain with little warning.

When you contact our dental office, a team member will instruct you on what to do, including when to come in for your emergency dental appointment in Castle Rock. We may also offer advice on what to do in the meantime, including the use of an icepack, oral pain relievers, or placing a broken tooth in warm water or milk.

When you have tooth pain or a dental emergency, our main concern is your comfort and the restoration of your oral health.
