Common Dental Emergencies We Treat

Some of the common emergencies Dr. Allen treats are:

  • A toothache
  • Broken teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Lost crown or filling
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Gum infection
  • Broken dentures

The first step in any emergency is to call us at (520) 760-6044. Some problems need immediate treatment while others can wait a day or two until you can arrange to see us.

When you call our practice, a knowledgeable member of our team will listen to your concerns, provide instructions, and make arrangements to see you as soon as possible, usually the same day. We always allow extra time in our schedule for emergencies so that we can make your emergency a priority and help you get the critical care you need when you need it.

Critical Emergencies

The most critical emergencies are severe tooth pain and a knocked-out tooth. Any dental pain is a sign that something is happening inside your tooth that needs attention, and severe pain indicates a problem that must be treated right away to provide relief, protect your oral health,
and save your tooth.

With a knocked-out tooth, time is of the essence because we have a small window of just a couple hours in which we can successfully replace the tooth back in its socket. Handle the tooth by its crown and keep the root moist in milk, water, or saliva until you get to our office. Please note that you should go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 if your face or jaw are injured or if you experience excessive bleeding.
