It can happen when you least expect it. A toothache in the night. A smile-damaging trip and fall while out jogging. An old dental crown wrenched loose during a good meal. If you find yourself in sudden pain or discomfort, call 952-679-1365.
Our Bloomington, MN dental office can be there for you and your family during a dental emergency. Weddell Dental is located on Penn Avenue South moments from the 494 and 35W junction. Let a dentist who’s seen it all in his 30 years of dentistry help you find relief.
What Is A Dental Emergency?
Sometimes it can be difficult to decide whether what you’re experiencing is pain that can wait a few days or if you need to get in for an appointment immediately. If you’re ever unsure, you can call our office and we’ll help you decide what your next steps should be. Some scenarios that require immediate treatment are:
- Extreme toothache
- Loose or lost tooth
- Cracked tooth
- Permanent dental appliance or restoration that has come loose
Dr. Weddell will never make you feel like an inconvenience if you have to reach him after hours. His first priority is always his patients’ health.
What Should I Do During A Dental Emergency?
When you call our office, we’ll guide you through what you should do in your dental emergency prior to coming in for your appointment. Our instructions will vary by emergency, but you might receive advice like:
- Gently rinse the dirt or debris from a tooth that has been knocked out
- Hold an ice pack to your face to reduce swelling
- Take ibuprofen specifically for pain relief
You don’t have to wait until a dental emergency to call us. Weddell Dental can treat your smile for standard dental care too. Call 952-679-1365 or use our simple online form to connect with one of our friendly team members.
