Emergency Dentist in Riverton
We know how difficult emergency situations can be and how important it is to get prompt medical treatment when you are having problems with your teeth, gums, or your mouth. Dr. Pearson can provide emergency care for same-day emergencies and is also available on call for dental emergencies after hours.
How to Handle a Dental Emergency
If you are woken up from a painful tooth problem, we recommend following these tips to reduce pain until you can reach our Riverton dental office:
• Toothache – Call our office immediately for treatment. We recommend using over-the-counter pain relievers to aid in reducing discomfort.
• Broken, chipped, or cracked tooth – Use warm water to rinse your mouth and place a cold compress to your face. Call our office immediately for treatment of the broken, chipped, or cracked tooth.
• Loose or knocked-out tooth – Trauma can occur that leads you to have a loose or knocked out tooth. Bring the knocked out tooth to our office right away so Dr. Pearson can determine if it is possible to fix it.
• Bitten tongue or lip – if you bite your tongue or lip and it is bleeding profusely, use a wet cloth and cold compress to reduce pain and swelling.
Dental Emergency in Riverton
Sometimes the problem will not be as clear as a broken tooth or knocked out tooth. If you find yourself dealing with pain or a serious dental problem, call our office immediately. An abscess tooth is a serious emergency that does require treatment as it can cause serious problems and may need to be treated through root canal therapy. Riverton Dental leaves appointments open for dental emergencies to ensure our patients are given the care they need to maintain adequate oral health.
