Dental emergencies can come out of nowhere and quickly sink your plans for the weekend. If you have ever suffered tooth pain or the worrisome moment you discover a cracked tooth, you understand the initial panic of needing emergency dental care. Having an established relationship with a dentist that offers emergency hours can be a real comfort if you find yourself in need of emergency dental services. But if you are new to the area or simply do not have a dental office that you see regularly, you may be asking yourself, “Where should I go for a dental emergency in Coralville, IA?” The answer is to simply call Coral West Dental to get the best, personalized care you need for your dental emergency.

What is a dental emergency

Tooth pain or broken or chipped teeth do not always happen during normal, weekday office hours. Deciding when it is a dental emergency or if it can wait until Monday may be a difficult decision to make. If you have suffered some sort of life-threatening injuries such as broken jar or facial fractures that have a potential to obstruct airways from swelling, you should call 9-1-1 or quickly make your way to the ER.

If you can determine that nothing is getting worse with time, generally, you can make an appointment during normal office hours and wait for your appointment. But it is still important to call to make an appointment as soon as possible. Dental problems should never be put on the back burner.

But if you are suffering from

  • Constant gum bleeding
  • Increasing or severe tooth pain
  • Permanent, adult tooth knockout or lost
  • Abscess or infection
  • A situation that makes eating difficult to impossible

These are examples of dental emergencies and should be seen by a dentist as soon as possible.
