What is a dental emergency?

It’s not always easy to differentiate between situations that require urgent dental care and dental issues that can be treated at a later time and date. Typically, the following problems require a same-day appointment with an emergency dentist:

  • Throbbing Toothache
  • Excessive Gum Swelling or Bleeding
  • Cracked, Broken, or Dislodged Tooth
  • Loose Adult Teeth
  • Dental Abscess
  • Foreign Object Stuck in Teeth

Should I see an emergency dentist or go to the ER?

In times of heightened stress and anxiety, some patients will head straight to the ER when they really should be going to see an emergency dentist. While emergency rooms can treat a wide variety of problems, they typically do not have the right equipment or any doctors with the experience necessary to treat dental emergencies. If you aren’t sure what to do, you are always welcome and encouraged to call our office so we can advise, and if you have any other injuries that require prompt attention, you may want to visit the ER first.

What should I do if I knock out a tooth?

The first thing you will want to do is locate the tooth and pick it up by the crown, not by the roots. If you can, rinse off any debris and then gently place the tooth back in the socket. If you don’t want to hold it in place, you can place a piece of gauze or clean cloth between the teeth and carefully bite down on it. If you can’t put the tooth back in the socket, keep it in a cup of milk or saliva until you get to our office. Time is of the essence, so make sure you head to our office immediately after taking these steps.
