When You Need To See An Emergency Dentist

jaw pain

Emergency dental situations are never ideal and they never seem to happen during “business hours”. However, that doesn’t mean that you should wait until your dentist opens up the next day. At Comfort Care Dental, we make the process of dealing with an emergency dental scare a lot less scary and painful, by providing taking care of their emergency dental needs ASAP in our comfortable dental office. 

Some dental emergencies may need to be treated in the emergency room. Regardless, it is critical to your oral health that you contact us if you believe you have a dental emergency. Not sure if your dental emergency is an emergency? Determine if you have an emergency dental scare with these questions:

  • Are you bleeding from the mouth? Is the bleeding not stopping?
  • Are you in severe pain? (over-the-counter medication isn’t working) 
  • Are any of your teeth loose, chipped, or broken?
  • Have you been hit in the face and/or mouth?
  • Is your mouth, jaw, or face around your mouth swollen?
  • Are there any bulges, swelling, or knots in your gums?
  • Do you have an injured or swollen jaw?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to contact our emergency dental office* locations in either Idaho Falls, Rexburg, Twin Falls, or Pocatello (whatever location is closest to you). As Idaho’s #1 Leader in sedation dentistry we invite you to leave your fears at the door, and let us take care of you. We will help you snooze through your procedure.

*When you contact us, we will need to have a basic understanding of what happened to cause the dental emergency and the current state that you are in. Once we know what’s going on we will be able to either direct you to one of our emergency dental care locations or an emergency room. We are here to help.
