Common Examples of Emergency Dental Situations

A dental emergency refers to any injuries to the teeth or gums that isn’t life threatening, but still requires immediate attention. Examples include cracked or chipped structure, teeth that have been knocked loose or out completely, loose or missing restorations, or sudden toothaches. Objects caught between teeth that you cannot remove with floss are also a cause for concern. When these situations occur, don’t panic! Give us a call even outside of normal business hours so we can reach out with a time to see you. In the meantime, you can take action to limit your discomfort.

Steps to Ease Initial Discomfort

First, rinse with warm water and use a piece of cloth or gauze to stem any bleeding. You can also place a cold compress on the side of your face to reduce swelling, and take an over-the-counter pain reliever as well. If you damage a tooth, try and bring any pieces of it with you. If one is knocked out completely, pick it up only by the crown, never touch the root. Place it in a glass of milk or salt water, and bring with you. If you have a compromised restoration, such as a filling or crown, avoid very hot or cold foods and drinks, or items high in sugar, as the exposed tooth is very sensitive.

Our Treatment Options

When a tooth is knocked out and you see us in a timely manner, we can restore the tooth to its proper place in your smile. If you have minor damage, we could offer repair in one visit with dental bonding, using the same composite resin material as our tooth-colored dental fillings. We also have custom crowns to address more substantial damage, and can replace compromised restorations as needed. Our team may also use mouthguards, custom options to protect you or a member of your family who plays full contact sports. If you have any questions about our approach to emergency dental care, then contact our team today to learn more.
