Be Prepared for Your Next Dental Emergency

Regular dental cleanings and exams will go a long way toward helping prevent dental emergencies. However, many types of emergencies can’t be prevented with routine dental care. So, it’s important to know what to do when dealing with a dental crisis. Below we’ve listed several types of dental emergencies along with important steps to take before you arrive at our office:

  • Knocked-Out Tooth – Be careful to touch the tooth only by the crown; avoid touching the roots. Place the tooth in a container of milk, salt water, or saliva and bring it with you. We’ll try to save it if possible.
  • Toothache – Rinse your mouth with warm water. Then use an ice pack or cold compress on your jaw to help reduce any pain and swelling. A toothache can be a sign of an abscess (infection), so call us as soon as possible for an appointment.
  • Loose Crown – Using a small amount of dental cement or toothpaste on the inside surface of the crown, try to reattach it if possible. If it won’t stay on, be sure to bring it to your appointment so we can put it back in place.
  • Soft Tissue Injury – Use a small piece of gauze or a tea bag to stop any bleeding from your cheek, lips, gums, or tongue. If the bleeding doesn’t stop in a few minutes, go to the nearest emergency room or urgent treatment center.
  • Broken Tooth – Retrieve any pieces of tooth and bring them with you. You can use an ice pack to help with swelling and pain.

Common Questions About Dental Emergencies

What can I do for dental emergencies on the weekend?

Dental emergencies don’t care about regular office hours. They can happen anytime and anywhere. We understand this, and we encourage you to contact us as soon as you can if you or someone you care about needs emergency oral care. Our doctors provide their cell numbers to our established patients so they can reach us as quickly as possible. We try to see patients that same day whenever possible.

Can I go to the ER for dental emergencies?

It’s not necessary to go to the ER for a dental emergency in most situations unless someone’s life is at risk. We will do our best to see you on the same day you contact us. We know you want relief as quickly as possible when you are dealing with an oral emergency. We will do everything we can to end your pain and set the stage to repair your smile and your oral health.

What situations are considered dental emergencies?

Many situations can be considered dental emergencies. Broken and cracked teeth can be painful and may expose the softer tissue inside your teeth. You should seek help quickly if a tooth is knocked out of its socket. Toothaches can require emergency treatment. Loose restorations (such as crowns and bridges) should be repaired as soon as you are able. You also should contact us about gum, cheek, and tongue injuries.
