Milwaukee Area Dentist Tony Cigno Releases New Article with Specifics on How to Deal with Holiday Dental Emergencies

Milwaukee area dentist Dr. Tony Cigno shares the best way to manage emergency dental treatment over the holidays when many family dental offices in Milwaukee or Greenfield are closed.

Greenfield, WI — December 19, 2017— Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published an article titled, “How to Handle Dental Emergencies Over the Holidays.”

Perhaps the first – and most important – piece of advice about dealing with holiday dental emergencies, says Dr. Cigno, is knowing what constitutes a dental emergency. There are actually very few real dental emergencies, he explains. However, for those situations that are emergencies involving a tooth, teeth, gums, fast treatment is critical.

This can be – or feel – challenging empathizes Dr. Cigno, when your Milwaukee dentist office or Greenfield dental office is closed for the holidays.

On the other hand, he elaborates, the good news is that most things that might happen with your teeth and gums over the holidays, can likely wait a day or two until your dentist is back open. Furthermore, for those that do require critical attention, many emergency rooms can and do provide such services.

However, Dr. Cigno again reminds that one must know if their situation is a dental emergency. He states, “Key to making sure your dental emergency is properly attended is knowing what constitutes a true dental emergency, what can wait a day or two to be addressed, and for those things that can wait, what to do in the meantime to make certain a bigger problem is not created.”

Thus, the crux of this article explains what those dental emergencies are and how each one should be handled for the least possible damage and best possible chance of minimal complications.
