When to See Our Dentist in Reno, NV for a Dental Emergency - Atencio Dentistry

When you are experiencing tooth pain, whether from a cavity, a cracked tooth or a lost filling, putting off seeing a dentist can often cause your condition to worsen. You can experience complications, including infection or increased damage to your tooth. It’s always better to see a dentist sooner rather than later in the event of a dental emergency – but how do you know when to give our dentist in Reno, NV a call? 

Matters of Emergency

Chipped Tooth – If you have a fractured or broken tooth, it’s best to see our dentist as soon as possible. Whether it occurs from playing sports, a traumatic event, or just horsing around, a chipped, cracked or broken tooth is a common dental emergency and should be taken seriously.

Oral Infection – If you are experiencing any type of oral infection, it’s important to call our office immediately, especially if your mouth begins to swell. An infection that makes it hard for you to breathe, swallow or sleep should not be overlooked or put off as it may lead to even bigger emergencies. Infections, like a dental abscess, can occur from an untreated cavity, old dental work, or some type of injury. Our dentist will drain the abscess and you might need a root canal or antibiotics. In more serious situations, the tooth may need to be pulled. 

Losing a Dental Crown or Filling – If this happens, see our dentist as soon as possible as it can lead to further tooth decay or cause your tooth to shift. If you can’t get to our dental office right away, there are temporary over-the-counter dental fillings and orthodontic wax you can use. Avoid using the tooth and remember, that it is temporary and not a permanent fix.

Had a recent visit to Atencio Dentistry as a new patient; staff was wonderful and accommodating to my disability needs from appointment scheduling to cleaning. My hygienist was very gentle. Dr. Atencio was present to review my dental X-rays and properly evaluated what needed to be done. Needed referral for evaluation for my jaw discomfort. Will be back to get what needs to be done and for my next cleaning.

Dr. Atencio and his staff are so friendly, kind, gentle and professional! I had a tooth pulled today, and everyone was awesome. Dr. Atencio was amazing and when he was done I was shocked that the tooth had been pulled. I highly recommend Dr. Atencio for any of your dental needs!

I like Karian, my new hygienist. She is personable, professional, knows her craft and made me feel comfortable and at ease. A very nice addition to Atencio's team. I also love the new air filtering equipment that has been added in each hygienist work station. An extra measure of precaution during this pandemic.
Nice to see a profession that is so proactive and protective during these challenging times
