Contact our caring staff at 832.662.2852 to help alleviate your concerns about safeguards during the pandemic.
I Have a Dental Emergency
Not every issue you experience will be a dental emergency or require immediate attention. But it’s good to have an understanding of the kinds of issues that do qualify. For example, contact Lovett Dental Katy if you experience any of the following:
- Is your tooth extremely loose
- Has your tooth been knocked out
- Did you lose a filling
- Did you lose a crown
- Is your tooth chipped
- Your tooth chipping
- Is your tooth cracked
- Have you broken your jaw
Saying “I have a dental emergency” must be followed up with action. If a tooth has been knocked out of your mouth, look for the tooth at the earliest chance. Of course, if you have to deal with other eminent first aid – do it. However, finding a lost tooth or tooth fragments should be addressed as soon as possible. There is a chance that your dentist will be able to replace the missing tooth if you can bring it in in a timely fashion.
Take Care of Pain and Swelling as Soon as Possible
A cool compress or an ice pack will help with the swelling of your gums and face. Make certain that the pain reliever you use is not a blood thinner. This may make bleeding more severe. If the pain persists despite the pain reliever or after the prescribed time of efficacy – contact a professional.
During the Pandemic Many People Have Opted Not To Seek Emergency Help
This is a great mistake. Saying “I have a dental emergency” is an assertive statement. It shows that you are taking your health seriously and want to seek help for your emergency. Not taking care of your dental health has far-reaching consequences on your general health. Follow up with a dentist as soon as possible. There are safe ways to interact with others during the pandemic. At Lovett Dental Katy, we will ensure that your dental emergency is properly addressed. We will not shy away from you when you say, “I have a dental emergency.”
