Dental Services We Offer

Toothache or tooth pain

A very common dental emergency is an aching tooth. A toothache is often an indication that there is an infection in or around a tooth. To help ease the pain, Advil can sometimes be comforting, at least in the short term. If the tooth has a hole in it, you can use a cotton ball soaked in Oil of Cloves to relieve the discomfort. It’s important to get into see a dentist as quickly as possible though, to at least get an antibiotic prescription to reduce the pain until the tooth can be examined and properly treated.

A partially or fully knocked-out tooth

If the appropriate emergency steps are followed after a tooth is knocked-out in any kind of capacity, there is a decent chance that a full tooth can be reinserted, restored, and preserved. A dental appointment should be scheduled as quickly as possible to maximize the odds of a successful conclusion to this distressing situation.

Chipped, broken, cracked, or fractured tooth

With a chipped or mildly broken tooth, if there is no pain then this likely doesn’t mean it’s a dental emergency, and an appointment can be made to see a dentist within a few short days. Repairing the tooth may be as simple as smoothing the chip over, or using composite filling material to address the issue. With a cracked or fractured tooth, this is absolutely a serious dental emergency, and damage has likely been done to the outside and inside of the tooth. In this type of situation, be sure to call us right away to get looked at as soon as possible by our dentist.

Tissue injury
Any sort of puncturing, lacerations, or tears to the cheeks, lips, or gums is indeed a dental emergency, and depending on the severity, should be handled by an emergency room doctor at a local hospital before seeing a dentist. If there is bleeding, especially excessive bleeding, then pressure should be applied to the wound using a gauze until a doctor can treat the issue.
A lost filling or crown
Losing a filling can be extremely painful, and is dental emergency that should be tended to right away if possible so a filling replacement can be done. A crown falling off may not constitute a dental emergency, but a dentist should be seen relatively soon so that the crown can be reattached, or a new one may need to be created depending on the specific situation.
Other dental emergencies
Essentially a dental emergency can be classified as any dental problem that requires immediate treatment to alleviate severe pain, to stop tissue bleeding, or the saving of a tooth.

If you suffer from one of these issues, or another type of dental emergency that isn’t listed above, then please contact our office. Our team will also be able to provide you with instructions on how to take care of your issue until you are able to come to our office to meet with our dentist and receive professional treatment.
If you have experienced trauma to the head or neck, we recommend that you visit an emergency room or your general physician to get examined before coming to the dentist, even if your smile is also damaged. To learn more about dental emergency care, we invite you to call or visit our office today.
