Urgent Dental Care

Dental emergencies are frightening and uncomfortable. If you or a loved one is in need, don’t hesitate to contact Libby Dental. When you call ahead for urgent care, we make it our effort to aid you as soon as possible. If you are unable to stop into our office, we can offer a few tips over the phone on temporary care.

Emergency dentistry is not for every emergency:

Emergencies that involve the face or mouth and need immediate care include jaw fractures and dislocations, serious soft-tissue injuries, and abscesses with severe swelling. If you are immunocompromised or have a serious illness, it is especially important to get treated by emergency medical personnel.

Conditions that require you to call 911 or go directly to the hospital include sudden impact to the head or neck, severe swelling or bleeding, and difficulty breathing or swallowing. When your symptoms do not stem from these frightening emergencies, we can help you by relieving pain and restoring your health.
