When Do I Need to See An Emergency Dentist?

There are a number of reasons you may need to visit our office on short notice today. If you are experiencing any of them, please call immediately, and we will make room in our schedule to see you.

Is A Broken Tooth Or Chipped Tooth A Dental Emergency?

Seeing an emergency dentist immediately after a tooth is broken or chipped may help save your tooth. Use a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling until you can get in to see us.

Is Tooth Loss A Dental Emergency?

If an accident occurs and a tooth is knocked out, call us right away for an appointment. We will work quickly to try to save your tooth and eliminate your discomfort. Preserve the tooth by rinsing it in clean water. Be very gentle with the tooth and roots and avoid removing any tissue. Store the tooth in a covered container with warm milk.

Is An Object Stuck Between Teeth A Dental Emergency?

If you get an object lodged between your tooth, you should not attempt to remove it yourself. Instead, call us for immediate help and we will remove the object for you and prevent potentially serious damage.

Is Crippling Gum Or Tooth Pain Reason To See An Emergency Dentist?

If you are experiencing any kind of severe oral pain, call us immediately. There may be an active infection or other health complication. The sooner we see you, the sooner we can help reduce pain and prevent further health complications.

Should I See An Emergency Dentist for Dental Bleeding?

If you have had a facial injury or experience bleeding from the gums, please call our office for treatment. First aid may not be enough to resolve the issue and coming to see us will help avoid further oral health complications.

Are Broken Wires Or Braces A Dental Emergency?

If a bracket from your braces sticks out or a wire breaks, you will need to come into the office immediately for care to avoid potential injury to your mouth. If possible, reposition the bracket to avoid jabbing your tongue, cheek or gums. If you are unable to reposition the protruding wire or bracket, place a cotton ball in your mouth to block injury.

How Can I Prevent Future Dental Emergencies?

Dental emergencies can happen unexpectedly, usually without any kind of indication they will occur. Preventing them altogether may be impossible, but there are some things you can do to reduce your risk for the need of an emergency dentist including:

  • Practice proper oral hygiene and have twice annual checkups with your dentist
  • Avoid eating hard candies and other foods that may crack or chip your tooth or filling
  • Wear protective gear while playing sports

What Do I Do Until I Can See My Emergency Dentist?

Depending on what the emergency is, there may be a few things you can do until you're able to get to our office for emergency dental care.

Ice packs help reduce swelling and may alleviate pain temporarily. They can also help slow down blood flow. If there is heavy blood flow, use a strip of sterile gauze over the wound.

What Will It Cost To See An Emergency Dentist?

The cost of emergency dental care varies from situation to situation. The best way to understand what your cost will be is to visit our office in person to seek treatment. We will answer all questions regarding care, cost, and post-treatment concerns during your consultation.
