Try to Prevent Dental Problems but Be Prepared When They Happen

Your teeth should not cause you pain. If you are having dental pain, it’s likely a reason to see emergency care. Call us if a tooth falls out, you have a tooth knocked out, you break or crack a tooth, or experience a painful toothache. We offer many ways to help, including root canals, dental crowns, tooth removal, and more.

You can’t anticipate when a dental injury will occur, but you can reduce your risk of dental problems with preventive care at our general dental practice. Here are some simple things you can do:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – Visit us twice a year for professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar and thorough exams to identify any changes in your oral health.
  • Athletic Mouthguards – Anyone who plays sports should wear a mouthguard during practices and competitions. Custom mouthguards from your dentist provide the best protection for your smile.
  • Restorative Dentistry – If you know that you have a problem, treat it as soon as possible with restorative care. This can spare you painful consequences and more invasive treatments down the road.

Call Weddell Dental at 952-679-1365 right away when you have dental emergencies in Bloomington, MN. For non-emergency care, you can make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Dental Emergencies

Can I go to the ER for dental emergencies?

Yes, you can. However, since they have no dentists on staff, you won’t be able to get a root canal, extraction, or other dental procedure. If you have an infection, they can provide antibiotics to keep it under control until you can see us. They may also be able to prescribe pain-relieving medication that is stronger than an over-the-counter medication.

What are common dental emergencies?

There are few emergencies that Dr. Weddell hasn’t seen in his 30-plus years of practice. Some are certainly more common than others! Emergencies that we see fairly often include toothaches caused by a cavity or an infection, cracked teeth, broken teeth, and broken dental restorations. In most cases, we’re able to resolve all these situations with restorative dentistry.

Can I prevent dental emergencies?

No one can anticipate every possible dental emergency, but you can take steps to reduce your odds of having such a problem. Following ADA recommendations – brushing and flossing daily and getting regular dental cleanings – reduces your risk of tooth infections and gum disease. Plus, wearing athletic mouthguards during sports can protect your teeth from injuries.
