Dental Emergencies in Milwaukee, WI
Dental emergencies can happen at any time. That is why we focus on prevention at our West Allis dental office. In spite of all of the planning in the world, we know that unexpected dental problems arise. We want you to know that we are here for you in the event of an emergency.
When is it a Dental Emergency?
If you have an accident that involves hitting your head, dizziness, or uncontrolled bleeding, you should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. You may have injuries that require more immediate attention than your teeth. We will be here for you once we make sure that nothing more serious is happening.
Otherwise, you should call us right away if you are experiencing dental pain or if you have lost a restoration. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can take care of you and help you feel comfortable again.
Common Dental Emergencies
Some of the most common dental emergencies include:
- Fractured teeth
- Sore gums
- Lost tooth
- Broken or lost restoration
- Extreme sensitivity
If you experience any of these symptoms do not hesitate to give us a call. We can ask you the proper questions in order to determine the next step. For most dental emergencies, an office visit is required. If you call during business hours, we will do our best to see you on the same day.
Dr. Roberto Monteagudo understands that dental emergencies can be stressful, frightening, and inconvenient. Our team is compassionate and warm. We will never make you feel guilty for having an emergency. We just want to help you feel better!
Your Emergency Appointment
When you call our office, it is important that you share as much information as you can about the nature of your dental emergency. We will ask you questions that will help us prepare for your arrival and be able to treat you efficiently. If you lost a restoration, such as a dental crown, please bring it with you to your appointment. In some cases, we can reattach it. If you have a partial denture or complete denture, it is important that you bring those, as well.
Once you arrive at our office, Dr. Monteagudo will evaluate your condition and we will take a digital x-ray of the area to determine the cause of your emergency. If possible, we will treat your condition immediately. In the even that we need to reschedule you for treatment on another day, we will at least help you feel comfortable and provide you with a temporary solution until a permanent one can be arranged.
Are You Experiencing Pain?
Dental emergencies rarely resolve on their own and in many cases, they get worse. Putting off treatment for too long can cause more extensive problems and puts your teeth at risk. Call us right away. Our entire team at WisconsinSmiles is committed to helping you feel like yourself again.
