Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies can strike at any time, and when they do, you need help immediately. You don’t have time to wait around for an appointment. The Dental Team offers emergency dental care, and we strive to meet the emergency needs of our patients efficiently and quickly.
Many dental issues can wait, but emergencies need to be treated as soon as possible. Here are some common dental emergencies and a few tips on what to do before you get to the dentist.
Avoid touching the roots of a knocked-out tooth and handle it by its crown (the part that is normally seen in the mouth). Place the tooth back into the socket, if possible, or put it in a cup of milk to keep it moist.
Intense oral pain that prevents you from sleeping or focusing on day-to-day tasks is a dental emergency, and it’s usually a sign of a deep cavity or an abscess. Salt-water rinses, over-the-counter pain medications, and cold compresses can help with pain, but you need to get to a dentist to treat your dental emergency as soon as possible.
Soft-Tissue Injuries and Bleeding
Soft tissue injuries need emergency care if the bleeding doesn’t stop. Gently clean the area and see if a cold compress stops the bleeding
Contact an emergency care dentist if you’re having any of these issues. Explain what’s happening, and don’t minimize the pain you’re feeling. They will guide you to the best options for your situation.
Emergency Dental Care Solutions
The proper emergency dental care varies based on your issue. Here are some of the most common emergency dental care services.
Emergency Tooth Repair
Knocked out teeth should be replaced by the patient or parent at the site of the injury immediately. If the patient waits until they get to the dental office it will likely be too late.
If the tooth has an abscess it can often be saved with a root canal, but if that’s not possible, we can repair a cavity that goes into the root of your tooth with a root canal, but if that’s not possible, your dentist may recommend an emergency extraction.
