It’s human nature for every person to respond differently to their understanding of an emergency. For example, if you have a partially dislodged tooth or you’ve recently been involved in an injury that’s resulting in heavy bleeding from your mouth or gums, those are considered more urgent than a toothache.
Also important is if you experience any adverse conditions post-dental procedure that your dentist did not prepare you for. A few examples include fever, chills, and excessive swelling or bleeding. In those situations, you should immediately contact the dentist that performed the procedure. If you are visiting from out of town, please contact Fox Creek Family Dental for emergency guidance and possible treatment methods that you can use at home until you can be seen during normal office hours.
In many cases, our expert team can consult with you over the telephone or online to determine the extent of your emergency and provide treatment advice until you can be seen in our office. We’ve found that just knowing that we’re available to help over a phone call has provided the emotional comfort many patients need until they can be seen in our dentist office. Whether it’s pointers on a cracked tooth, broken teeth, loss of a permanent tooth, an abscess, oral disease, or anything else that’s causing you concern, Fox Creek Family Dental is here to help.
