When A Dental Emergency Haunts Your Halloween… [BLOG]

You and your family are looking forward to several Halloween parties and events, especially a fun night of trick-or-treating.

What you aren’t expecting is a dental emergency!

Although you could experience something like this out of the blue and should do what you can to minimize your risk for dental problems and injuries, you don’t have to let it haunt your Halloween memories.

That’s because you know you can turn to your St. Louis dentist for emergency dental care and fast relief for tooth pain. During your appointment at The DentaLink, we’ll make sure you get a quick, effective solution to the oral health issue you’re facing.

When Your Halloween Is Haunted By Dental Problems

So often, we hear from patients who are really miserable because of dental pain and discomfort, yet they aren’t sure if they’re making too big a deal out of it. Our top priority is to make sure you’re comfortable, so we want to do everything we can to relieve your pain as soon as possible.

In other words, if you’re in pain because of a sudden dental problem or injury, don’t wonder whether or not you need emergency dental care! Call us right away, and we will set up the soonest available appointment.

If you’re anxious about dental treatment, we’ll do everything we can to ensure your comfort. We offer two levels of dental sedation so that you don’t have to put off treatment and risk the underlying oral health issue getting worse.

Don’t Wonder If Your Tooth Pain Or Injury Is An Emergency!

Take a look at these common dental emergencies we often see in our St. Louis and Ballwin practices so you have a better idea of the kind of oral health problems that often need immediate treatment:

  • You have a toothache that doesn’t respond to OTC pain relievers.
  • You have an infected or abscessed tooth.
  • You’re experiencing pain when you chew.
  • You’ve lost a tooth, a crown, or a filling.
  • You have a loose or damaged tooth or restoration.

You and the kids are bobbing for apples, you’re eating sticky, hard candy, and soon you’ll be guiding their foot path while trick-or-treating. It’s no wonder why we see a lot of dental emergencies around Halloween.

But you can minimize your family’s risk for sudden dental problems by making sure their costumes and masks don’t make it harder for them to walk or see where they’re going, carrying a flashlight while trick-or-treating, practicing moderation with candy, and maintaining good dental habits.

If you find yourself needing emergency dental care anyway, you can trust your friends at The DentaLink to help you out!
