When Should I See an Emergency Dentist?
It is best to visit an emergency dentist right away if you are experiencing any of the following:
Toothache – If you have a toothache, please contact our office right away.
BrokenTooth – If you have a broken tooth, it is best to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible to prevent risk of infection or further damage.
Lost Dental Filling or Crown – Please save and bring the crown to your appointment if possible.
Dental Abscess – If you notice swelling of the face or gums, it is best to contact our office immediately. Dental abscesses can lead to serious infections if not treated immediately.
Object Stuck in Teeth – If careful flossing does not remove something jammed in your gums or between teeth, please call our office for a emergency dental care.
Sore Jaw – If you are experiencing pain opening or closing your jaw or the muscles surrounding the jaw are sore, please schedule an appointment for a TMD exam.
If you experience intense bleeding or your dental emergency is beyond emergency dental care, please go to the nearest emergency room for assistance.
Temporary Crown Falls Out – If your temporary crown falls out and you still have it, dry your natural tooth, apply a small dab of toothpaste or fixodent to the temporary and reattach it. Please call our emergency dental care office so that we can check and recement your temporary as soon as possible.
Knocked Out Tooth – Rinse the tooth gently under water to remove debris. Place the tooth into the socket and hold it in place until you get to our office. Otherwise, put the tooth into a baggie of milk and bring it to us so that we can determine whether reattachment is possible.
Cut/Bitten Tongue or Lip – Thoroughly clean the cut, then hold a cold compress against it. If bleeding does not stop, go to your local emergency room. You may need stitches.
Broken Tooth – A cracked or broken tooth should be rinsed immediately with warm water. Then hold a cold compress against the affected tooth to reduce swelling while on your way to our office for urgent dental care.
Possibly Broken Jaw – If you think your jaw may be broken, apply a cold compress and proceed to your local emergency room immediately. If you lost or damaged teeth during your injury, please call our office for emergency dental care.
Severe Toothache – Rinse your mouth and the area around the tooth, then floss around the tooth to make sure that debris is not causing the pain. Do not put an aspirin on the tooth because it can damage your gum tissue. Call our office for urgent dental care if the pain persists.
Something Caught Between Teeth – Use dental floss to gently remove the debris, and be sure that you don’t cut your gums with the floss. Do not use a sharp instrument to dislodge the debris. If floss doesn’t help, call our office for an appointment.
