Emergency Dental Services
What is a Dental Emergency?
Emergencies can happen at any time, and we are here to help in those stressful moments.
Unsure if you are experiencing a dental emergency? Here are some of the common dental emergencies that our dentists should treat right away. Contact our dental clinic so we can schedule an appointment and have you seen as soon as possible.
Lost Fillings or Crowns
Try to identify and find any broken or lost fillings or crowns. Rinse the filling or crown and attempt to put it back in place while you wait to be seen. Call our office as soon as possible to arrange an appointment to have it fixed.
Chipped or Broken Teeth
Have you experienced an accident resulting in a broken or chipped tooth? Try to look for your missing piece of tooth, put it in a clean container and bring it with you to your appointment. Your dentist can potentially reattach it. Contact our dentists immediately, whether the piece is found or not.
If you can find your tooth you should rinse it, hold it by the crown - not the roots - and re-insert it into your tooth socket by gently biting down once it is in its place. Keep your tooth moist by putting it in a glass of milk or holding it in your mouth until you arrive at your office.
Take an over-the-counter pain medication. If you are bleeding, do not take aspirin. Apply a cold compress against your cheek where your tooth has been fractured. This will help reduce your pain and swelling.
Please give our office a call and head on over as soon as we say you can. The sooner you can be treated after a tooth has been knocked out, the better the chance your dentist will have of saving it.
Severe Swelling, Pain or Discomfort
Do you notice your face, mouth or neck areas have sudden moderate to severe swelling or are you experiencing severe pain or discomfort in or around your mouth?
Call us as soon as possible and utilize the following step to help alleviate some of the pain you are experiencing:
1. Apply a cold compress to your cheek, where you feel pain.
2. Take an over-the-counter pain medication.
3. Use salt water to flush the area that is in pain. This will help remove any debris that could be causing the toothache.
Our dentists should see the swelling or condition to diagnose the cause and plan quick, effective treatment.
