What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
We recommend regular exams and professional dental cleaning appointments so that you never have to encounter a dental emergency, but we know that sometimes the unexpected happens. Whether you bit into something and cracked a tooth or you have unexplained dental pain, we can help restore your dental health.
At Mountain West Smiles, we encourage you to contact our office at the first signs of a dental emergency. If you have sudden pain, sensitivity, or if you break a tooth, calling us right away will allow us to get you taken care of more quickly.
Transparency Is Key!
When you contact us, give us as much information about your dental emergency as possible. Where is the pain located? What is the location of the affected tooth? If you lost a crown or other dental restoration, do you still have it? What were you doing when the emergency occurred? Giving us as much information as possible will help us determine the next step for your treatment.
Once you have a conversation with one of our team members or with Dr. Ken Cory, we might recommend an emergency exam in our Montrose dental office. At your exam, we will diagnose your condition and restore your comfort.
