Dental Emergency Services

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental emergency is any dental situation that requires immediate attention. This could be excessive bleeding, sharp or throbbing pain, or acute swelling caused by jaw pain, knocked out tooth, a cracked or broken tooth, or loose filling or temporary crown. When experiencing a dental emergency, the best thing to do is to call us and speak to a qualified dentist who can then inform you on the best steps to take in your specific situation. Our dentists are trained to be able to handle dental emergencies and talk a patient through the steps.

The most important thing to remember when you knock out a tooth is to remain calm. If the tooth is fully removed, there will be blood, you should use a clean cloth to cover the area and contact your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist will provide you with more specific information on how to best proceed, then instruct you to make your way to our office. We recommend that you have a friend or family member drive you as the pain can distract from the road. Once you arrive at our office, our dentist will take care of everything and ensure that you receive the treatment that you require.

An emergency dental team will do what they can to avoid removing a tooth if that is an option, but if necessary, they can remove a tooth. The main goal of an emergency dental appointment is to relieve as much pain as possible and get whatever the problem is to a controlled level. This will help keep you comfortable and stable until your dentist can provide you with the best solution to permanently fix your problem.

Maintain good dental hygiene and take care of your teeth by brushing them twice a day and flossing every night before bed. Additionally, it’s in your best interest to safeguard your teeth by wearing a mouthguard and a helmet if you participate in any high-contact sports.

Toothaches could be a sign of much bigger problem. If you have a severe toothache, you can take action to lessen the discomfort before visiting the dentist. For instance, brushing and flossing your teeth might be beneficial because food particles that are left in the mouth occasionally create pain.

Aspirin can help ease the discomfort, but be careful not to apply it directly to the gum as this could aggravate it by burning the mouth. Remember that just because you are able to entirely eliminate your toothache doesn’t mean the situation is over. As was previously indicated, it might be a sign of something more serious. If the underlying problem is not resolved, it can lead to further suffering and expense in the near future.

Dislodged teeth: It is likely that an appointment with a general dentist will be required after the initial care, but an emergency dentist can stop bleeding and bring down pain or swelling

Crack or chip: An emergency dentist may be able to repair a crack or chip through bonding, filling or crown placement

Fractured jaw: A common problem that an emergency dentist experiences is patients who have fractured jaws; in these cases, a referral is made to a local oral surgeon when surgery may be required

Lost filling or crown: A filling or crown can come loose or fall out due to decay or wear and tear.

Abscess: An abscess is a pocket of pus that can form in the tooth or gums, usually due to an infection.
