If you are experiencing extreme pain, contact Dr. Gabriel Roybal, DDS at our Santa Fe office for emergency dental care. Even if you have never been to our dental office, we will have you come in right away so we can work to take away your pain. Often, a simple procedure can take away your pain and we can talk about a permanent solution to the underlying problem.
Typically, you should call for emergency dental care whenever the pain is too much to bear. Some reasons for emergency dental care include:
- Extremely painful toothache
- Broken crowns, fillings or bridge
- Broken dentures
- A broken tooth
- Knocked out tooth
- Burning or sore gums
- Swollen jaw
If you knocked out your tooth, never hold it by the roots. Keep it clean by putting it in a glass of milk or a glass of water mixed with salt. This will help keep the life of the tooth until you get to our office. If it is not too painful, try and put the tooth back in its socket as well.
The faster you get to our office, the more likely it will be that Dr. Roybal can save your tooth. Emergency dental care can save your teeth, so contact us right away.
A Note on Sedation Dentistry
Sometimes fear of going to the dentist is even worse than the extreme pain you’re in. That fear might be the reason for the pain in the first place! Don’t let anxiety prevent you from getting emergency dental care. We offer sedation dentistry so you can relax while we fix your dental pain.
