Frequently Asked Questions About Emergency Dentistry

Understanding Emergency Dentistry

Emergency dentistry is crucial when you face unexpected dental issues that require immediate attention. Situations warranting a call include:

  • Severe toothaches or swelling.
  • Broken, chipped, or knocked-out teeth.
  • Lost dental restorations like fillings or crowns.
  • Traumatic injuries resulting in bleeding, lacerations, or jaw fractures.
  • Signs of infection, such as abscesses or severe swelling.

In any of these scenarios, it’s essential to get in touch with us swiftly. Prompt care can make the difference between saving or losing a tooth and can also prevent further complications.

If a tooth is knocked out, it’s paramount to act swiftly. Immediately contact us. Always handle the tooth by the crown, avoiding the root. If the tooth is dirty, give it a gentle rinse with water, resisting the urge to scrub or use soap. If feasible, reinsert the tooth gently into its socket. If this isn’t possible, preserve the tooth in milk or saline solution and bring it with you when you visit. The sooner you can get to us, the higher the chance of saving the tooth.

Undoubtedly, yes. A significant toothache can be indicative of problems such as infection, cavities, or internal tooth damage. Immediate attention is crucial, not just for pain relief but to pinpoint and address the underlying cause, preventing further deterioration.

While it’s impossible to foresee all emergencies, preventive measures can significantly reduce the risk. Regular oral care practices like brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are foundational. For those involved in contact sports, wearing protective gear like mouth guards can shield against trauma. Lastly, being cautious with hard foods can prevent chipping or breaking teeth.
