What counts as a Dental Emergency?

We know that emergencies can happen to anyone at any time, and our dental team is ready to help.

If you're not sure if you are experiencing a dental emergency, read on to see some of the most common dental emergencies requiring immediate attention. Contact our dental clinic so we can schedule an appointment as soon as possible. 

  • Lost Fillings or Crowns

    Attempt to identify and find any broken or lost fillings or crowns. Use water to rinse the filling/crown and try to place it back on your tooth, then contact our office as soon as possible to arrange an appointment to have it fixed. 

  • Chipped or Broken Teeth

    Has your tooth been broken or chipped? Do your best to find the missing tooth or piece, store it in a clean container, and bring it along with you to your appointment. Your dentist can potentially reattach it, but regardless it needs to be repaired right away by a professional dentist.

  • Knocked-Out Teeth

    If you can find the tooth that has been knocked out, make sure to hold it by the crown (the top) - not the roots - rinse, and re-insert it into your tooth socket by gently biting down once it's in the right place. Keeping it moist is key; try putting it in a glass of milk or keeping it your mouth until you get to your dentist's office. 

    Over-the-counter pain medication can help with discomfort, but avoid aspirin if you are bleeding. Apply a cold compress against your cheek where your tooth has been injured in order to help reduce pain and swelling.

    Come to the office as soon as possible; the sooner you can be treated after a tooth has been knocked out, the greater chance that your dentist could save it.

  • Severe Swelling, Pain or Discomfort

    Do areas of your face, mouth or neck have sudden moderate-to-severe swelling, or are you experiencing severe pain or discomfort in or around your mouth?

    Contact us as soon as possible and follow these steps to help manage the pain:

    1. Gently apply a cold compress to your cheek on the painful area. 

    2. Take an over-the-counter pain medication (avoid aspirin if there is bleeding).

    3. Use saltwater to gently flush the area that is in pain. This can help remove debris that could be causing a toothache.

    See a dentist right away so that they can diagnose the cause of the swelling or other condition and plan quick, effective treatment.
