Comfort Care Dental

Your Rexburg Emergency Dentist

It’s 3 AM and you’ve just been woken up by a throbbing pain in your mouth, do you call your Rexburg emergency dentist? The emergency room? Or do you just wait it out until the pain (hopefully) subsides? These questions can be difficult to answer if you are not sure whether your dental pain/issue constitutes as a real or immediate “emergency”. At Comfort Care Dental, we want to make sure that all of our patients know when they can call us for whenever a dental emergency arises or if they just need a few questions answered. As your Rexburg emergency dentist, we want to make sure we provide you with the best information available to help you make an informed decision for you and your family’s dental needs.

When To See Your Rexburg Emergency Dentist

Whether you are suffering from a 3 AM toothache or your tooth has been knocked out from an injury or accident, you may want to contact your Rexburg emergency dentist as soon as possible. Some dental emergencies are on a time frame and need to be dealt with immediately, in order to provide the best care for your teeth. Here we provide a list of dental emergencies that need to be dealt with by a professional immediately. These include, but are not limited to:

  • A painful toothache that can’t be managed with over the counter pain medication.
  • Swelling
  • An adult tooth that has been knocked loose or completely out for any reason.
  • Jawbone injury
  • Bleeding that won’t stop (you may be referred to an emergency room, depending on other symptoms you may be experiencing)

If you or you’re loved one is experiencing any of the above issues or a dental emergency that just can’t wait, make sure to call your Rexburg emergency dentist at Comfort Care Dental, to take care of you immediately.

When The Dental Emergency Can Wait

Even if you are not sure if your dental issue or accident is “emergency” worthy, it is always a good idea to contact your Rexburg emergency dentist to discuss your symptoms, so that they can determine the best course of action. Below is a list of those dental emergencies that could be taken care of during regular business hours. The “emergencies” that do not require immediate attention by your dentist include:

  • A lost filling, crown, or bridge.
  • Dull toothache that can be managed with over the counter pain medication
  • Broken or cracked tooth/teeth. (Unless you are experiencing severe pain from the injury)
  • Broken or damaged retainer, night guard, mouth guard, or other oral device.
