There is nothing worse than waking up one morning with an excruciating toothache. It can all but take over your life, consuming everything you do, especially combined with other symptoms such as a fever or swollen glands, which may indicate that there is an infection that needs treating urgently. It makes you want to reach for the nearest pair of pliers and pull your own tooth out - something that we do not recommend doing!
Emergency dentistry care from a dental provider such as Prairie Hawk Dental in Colorado can provide emergency dental treatment. It is important that toothache alongside swollen glands and fever, or extreme pain and throbbing spreading out towards the jawline and ear or neck, is checked out as soon as possible. This can stop any problem from getting worse and more difficult to treat.
It is not just toothache that Prairie Hawk Dental in Colorado can deal with. While we all do everything in our power to avoid being injured or getting into an accident, it happens, and when it happens, we are there to help pick up the pieces. If you have broken a couple of teeth, seriously damaged them, or even lost one, call us immediately so we can take a look. We can suggest the best emergency dental procedure for you so that you can regain the smile you love.
We may need to remove infected teeth or look at medication and find the root cause of the pain or the problem. It is important to recognize that painkillers can reduce and mask the pain, and it can come and go, but until the underlying cause has been found and dealt with, you are at risk of experiencing further pain and issues with your teeth.
Sometimes, you may experience symptoms that are not quite at the level of needing emergency dental treatment but enough that you need someone to take a look as soon as possible. These symptoms may include broken or cracked or chipped teeth, crowns, and fillings that have been lost, mild toothache, a broken wire on your braces or retainers, or an annoying piece of food trapped in your teeth. These things can be uncomfortable, unsightly, and irritating, but they do not require emergency dental treatment unless the nerve is exposed or it is too painful to bear. Instead, call us at Prairie Hawk Dental in Colorado and arrange an appointment. If you are unsure whether your symptoms require emergency dental treatment, contact us by phone, email or pop in and we will be happy to discuss your needs.
