Emergency Dentistry

Having an experienced emergency dentist can take a lot of the stress out of a dental crisis. Dr. Larsen can help alleviate your pain and quickly put you on the road to recovery.

You can help to safeguard yourself against a dental emergency by making sure your teeth and gums stay in good condition. This entails maintaining a regular routine of brushing and flossing and getting a dental check-up and professional teeth cleaning every six months.  Of course no matter how prepared you are, emergencies do happen.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

A genuine dental emergency results from situations that require immediate treatment to:

  • Alleviate severe pain
  • Staunch heavy bleeding
  • Save a tooth
  • Halt the progress of a severe infection such as a dental abscess

In the case of pain and bleeding from a knocked-out tooth, fast treatment will give you the best chance of successful reinsertion of the tooth. A loose tooth, even pain-free, can also be a serious issue in adults.

Facial swelling or a lump on your gums combined with a high temperature can be a sign of an abscess or other serious infection in your mouth that could be potentially life-threatening.
