How Can I Tell if My Dental Problem Is An Emergency?

There’s no reason for you to worry about whether your problem constitutes a “real” emergency when you can easily pick up the phone and call Dr. Michael Allen, your emergency dentist in Tucson. In most cases, we can provide the most favorable outcomes when we can see and treat you as soon as possible.

Now that you know you have a trusted professional to turn to, it can be helpful for you to understand the different types of emergencies you might encounter and how to handle them until we can see you.

Emergencies to Treat Immediately

A knocked out, or avulsed tooth is the most critical dental emergency because we have the best chance of saving it if we see you within the first couple hours. Don’t touch the root or any attached tissue and keep it moist in a container of milk, water, or saliva until you get to our office.

Tooth pain that prevents you from functioning is a critical emergency because it is a sign of a severe problem, such as a dental abscess, that we need to treat right away. Call us so we can arrange to see you the same day to provide the relief you need.

Emergencies That May Wait a Day or Two

The following emergencies should be addressed as soon as possible, but you may be able to wait a day until you can break from your schedule and get to our office. 

  • Mild tooth pain or tender, swollen gums
  • A chipped, cracked, or broken tooth
