When Should I Call an Emergency Dentist?

Whenever you are experiencing dental pain that you cannot handle yourself, this constitutes a dental emergency. Dental emergencies can also happen if you get a tooth knocked out or broken, or if a filling or crown falls out or becomes loose. Other times you should call an emergency dentist include when you are experiencing excessive bleeding from the gums, extreme tooth sensitivity, or pain that won’t go away.

Dental emergencies can include:

  • Knocked out or broken teeth
  • Fillings or crowns that fall out or become loose
  • Heavy bleeding from the gums
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Persistent oral pain and toothaches

How to Deal with a Dental Emergency

The first step in dealing with a dental emergency is to remain calm. We know this can be difficult under extreme pain or the shock of an accident, but it is important to keep a clear head. The next step is to contact us for urgent dental care so we can handle the emergency.

If you wait too long, then you risk causing further dental problems. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to contact us immediately whenever you feel like you are experiencing a dental emergency. We will help identify the issue and take care of it before any further complications can arise.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If you have had a tooth knocked out, there are a few things you need to do to help preserve it and make it easier to save. If the tooth has fallen out of your mouth, always pick it up by the crown and not the root. Rinse it off with milk or water if it is dirty.

If possible, try to place the tooth back in its socket and keep it there until you can visit us to have it put it back in place. If you can’t comfortably do this, then another option is to hold it in your mouth between your cheek and your gums. When neither of these options works in your current situation, place the tooth in a cup of water or milk to keep it moist until you can see our emergency dentist.

Keeping the tooth moist helps to preserve its pulp so it can be placed back into your mouth and take root more easily. Depending on how long the tooth has been out of your mouth and the state of the tooth, the dentist may be able to splint it back into place until the root re-attaches to the bone. If the tooth or bone is broken, it may require a more complex repair procedure.
