A Few of the Common Dental Emergencies We Can Resolve For You

We are prepared to address any and all of your dental concerns. The following selections are a few of the most common dental emergencies that patients bring to our office.

  • TOOTHACHE | When you start to feel tooth pain, that is your body telling you there is a problem. That tooth discomfort is often an indication that the healthy parts of your tooth are under attack. Every day you delay treatment makes the damage to your tooth more extensive.

    Whether your toothache has become absolutely unbearable or is simply an annoyance, schedule your visit right now. Don’t torture yourself by letting the tooth pain intensify. Our emergency dentist can take immediate action to soothe the tooth pain and treat the underlying cause.

    Depending on the state of your oral health, emergency care for tooth pain can include procedures such as root canal therapy, which is a remarkable procedure that can save a tooth and provide lasting relief from your tooth pain! Whatever the cause of your toothache, our dental office is here to help.

  • KNOCKED-OUT TOOTH | Teeth can be knocked out completely in sporting events, fights, auto accidents, or other traumatic experiences. If addressed immediately, it is often possible to restore the tooth and preserve it; however, the response must be swift in order to have any chance of rescuing the knocked-out tooth.

    If you have knocked out your tooth, pick up the tooth by the crown (the visible portion of the tooth in your smile); take care not to touch the roots of the tooth, which can easily become damaged. Without scrubbing the tooth, use warm water to gently rinse off any particles.

    If you can, reinsert the tooth into the socket it came from. If you are having trouble inserting the tooth, put it in a small bottle or container with milk or clean water and bring it with you to our office.

  • BROKEN TOOTH | A small chip, broken off from your tooth, is not a dental emergency unless it is causing pain. However, a broken or fractured tooth can be tremendously painful.

    When the enamel of the tooth (the hard exterior surface) is broken, nerves and blood vessels may be exposed. If left untreated, this area may become infected and lead to a serious dental problem, such as a tooth infection.

    If you find yourself in this situation, schedule a visit with us immediately. Neglecting a broken tooth is never a good idea.

  • BROKEN DENTAL RESTORATIONS | If you have a filling or crown that is cracked or broken, please call your dentist. Broken dental restorations can cause additional damage to your tooth as well as the surrounding structures. Failure to address broken restorations may mean that you will need more intensive solutions later.

    When you contact our office, we can place a new restoration to preserve the tooth underneath and protect your other teeth from damage.

  • ABSCESSED TOOTH | An abscessed tooth refers to an infected tooth. This infection can spread rapidly and painfully.

    Common side effects of an abscessed tooth include fever, tooth sensitivity, severe toothache, swelling portions of the face, and even neck pain. If you notice a bump or swell in your gums which seems to be the source of the pain, you need emergency dental care to prevent tooth loss.

    This situation is a true emergency. If not addressed promptly, the infection may also spread to your jaw and other areas of the body. In fact, the infection can eventually spread to your brain and lead to death.

    We are not trying to scare you into visiting our practice. It is imperative though that you understand how an abscessed tooth emergency can cause a much more serious health condition. Don’t hesitate! Please call our office immediately!

  • PAINFUL, INFLAMED GUMS | Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss among adults in the United States. The most common signs of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, are gum pain and inflammation; you may also notice swelling and bleeding as you brush and floss your teeth.

    Most adults do not realize how quickly the minor symptoms of gingivitis—the earliest stage of gum disease—can spiral into tooth loss. Prompt action can reverse the effects of gum disease and restore your oral health. Early treatment can help you prevent tooth loss.

    We want to help you save your smile, which is why you should call our emergency dentists if you notice any issues with your gums—however minor they may seem to you.

  • JAW INJURIES | Although we are always happy to help you in the event of dental injuries, dental offices are not well-equipped to help you with a broken jaw. We recommend that patients who have jaw injuries seek help from an emergency room instead. If you are bleeding, you can apply a cold compress to help stop the bleeding until you can reach a hospital.
