The sooner you act to save a tooth, the more likely you’ll have a good outcome. Continue reading to learn how to respond to a toothache, knocked-out tooth, loose tooth, and other situations that require urgent dental care. If you think you have a dental emergency, call our office right away to see our emergency dentists.
What is considered a dental emergency?
Call our emergency dentists if you have sharp and/or consistent oral pain, tissue bleeding that won’t stop, abscesses, or broken teeth. If you aren’t sure if you have a dental emergency, you should still call our office for further instructions. Getting emergency dental care in time can help you save a tooth.
Many mild toothaches are caused by food caught between teeth. Before calling our emergency dentists, gently floss to remove any trapped food particles that could be causing pain and rinse with warm water. If the toothache persists, call our office as soon as possible and take over-the-counter pain relievers until your appointment. DO NOT put crushed aspirin on your tooth, as this burns gums and destroys tooth enamel.
Your best chance to replant a knocked-out tooth is within 30 minutes of injury. Our emergency dentists can help with these types of emergencies, giving you the best chance of saving your tooth.
