Is A Loose Tooth A Dental Emergency?

emergency dental office Bozeman

We hope you will never notice a loose tooth. But if you do, and there is no good explanation for it, remember us at Sven Bone Dentistry in Bozeman where we offer emergency dentistry.


An accident can knock a tooth loose. An injury to the mouth area is always an emergency—whether or not a tooth is loose.

When Do I See A Medical Doctor First?

For some injuries to the mouth, you should see a physician first. If you have a laceration in your mouth that’s bleeding profusely, head to the E.R. or urgent care clinic.

After the primary injury is treated, we can treat the trauma or decay. You may need a root canal, filling, and/or protective crown.

We Replace Missing Teeth

If the tooth cannot be saved, you may need an extraction. A can replace a missing tooth following extraction. At Sven Bone Dentistry, we provide all of these services.

We Treat Oral Infections

A localized infection can trigger or aggravate a loose tooth. Either gum disease or tooth decay can bring about an infection. You should see us as soon as possible if you suspect an infection.

Swelling Jaw?

If your jaw starts swelling, call us right away. This could indicate a dangerous infection that needs treatment promptly

We Treat Tooth Abscesses

Some infections lead to an abscess. An abscess is a pocket of pus. It can be located inside a tooth. Or in the gums. Or in the jaw bone near the tooth root. An abscess usually causes severe pain. If you suspect an abscess, you need to see us promptly. If left untreated, this can actually destroy the bone around the tooth and cause serious discomfort.
