At Bryden General & Implant Dentistry, we understand that accidents (and tooth injuries) happen. Whether it be from a high-impact collision in a soccer match or a crown that’s starting to fall out, our team is on standby to get you the care you need — when you need it. Because no one expects a dental emergency to happen, we want to be the Lewiston dentist you can lean on if they do.

What to Do: Dental Emergency
So, what should you do if you are experiencing a dental emergency?
Remain Calm – When you’re nervous or scared, it’s easy to make decisions that aren’t in your best interest. It’s important to stay as relaxed as possible so that our team members can help you find the best solution for your situation.
Assess the Area – Next, assess the area. Where is the pain located? What happened before the pain started?
Give us a Call – Finally, give us a call at (208) 743-5032 to connect with our team. We will try to get you in as soon as possible — even on weekends or after hours.
Call 911 – If there’s excessive pain or bleeding — contact 911 immediately.
Examples of Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. They may also lead to serious complications that require immediate treatment.
Although there is no clear definition of what a dental emergency is, here are some common emergencies we see in our Lewiston office:
Toothache or pain that won’t go away
A knocked-out tooth (or chipped tooth)
Infection of the gums, tongue, or cheek
Swelling around the jaw area (TMJ issues)
A broken appliance (such as a crown)
Again, if you have a dental emergency, call our office at (208) 743-5032 so we can alleviate any tooth pain you may be feeling.
