Procedures That Require an Emergency Dentist


There are numerous causes for tooth aches and sensitivity. They can happen suddenly and can be almost crippling as far as dental pain goes. When you have a toothache, you don’t want to wait for several days. Contact our office today at (208)529-0420 if you are having a dental emergency!

Gum Infections

Gum infections can cause a lot of pain, and if they are not taken care of can lead to very serious problems down the road, this often makes them one of the more urgent dental issues we see. If your gums are painful, red, or if they are bleeding, could be suffering from periodontal disease (gum disease), or you might have an infection in one of the roots of your teeth that needs a root canal. Whatever the case, our practice in Idaho Falls, ID has the right dental treatment for you! If you notice swelling, redness or bleeding in your gums you should consult with your dentist or dental hygienist right away!

Broken Tooth

There are different options for a broken tooth, but no matter what option is best for you, you want to take care of it as quickly as possible. The necessary work depends on several different factors. If you do have a broken tooth you should call a dentist immediately to get further guidance to ensure the best outcome.

Dental Trauma

Dental trauma is extremely common with a reported one third of children having had some sort of dental trauma by age five. When a child suffers some sort of injury to their mouth they should be examined by a dentist. There are issues that can arise down the road if dental trauma is not handled correctly.

What to Do in the Case of a Dental Emergency

It is clear that in most emergency scenarios you should at least speak with a dentist even if you are not planning to be seen by a dentist. Many dentists will give you recommendations and let you know whether or not you need to be seen in the office.

Whether you are young or old, have great dental health or poor dental health, there is nothing that you can do to ensure that you will never have a dental emergency.
