Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Emergencies

What is considered a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any one of the following situations: unbearable pain, severe infection, uncontrolled bleeding, and a tooth that needs urgent care in order to be saved. If you’re not sure if you’re dealing with a dental emergency, call our office and we can help you determine whether immediate care is needed.
When should I go to the ER for tooth pain?
If our office is closed and the pain you’re feeling is so severe that you can’t eat or sleep, you may decide that you need to go to the ER. It’s important to understand that the emergency room does not have dentists on staff, so you’ll still need to come to our office for the dental care you need. Emergency room doctors can help with pain management, drain an abscess, and prescribe antibiotics, but they cannot perform dental services.
Is a toothache an emergency?
If your toothache is severe and affects your ability to eat, sleep, and go about your daily activities, it’s considered an emergency. A severe toothache is usually a symptom of a serious dental problem, such as a fractured tooth or infection.
What should I do if a permanent tooth gets knocked out?
With prompt action, you can save a knocked out permanent tooth. Only touch the crown of the tooth (the portion that is usually visible above the gum line), never the root; holding the crown, rinse the tooth gently with cow’s milk or water. Attempt to push the tooth back into the socket, if you can, and have your child bite down on a clean piece of gauze to hold it in place. If this isn’t possible, put the tooth in a small cup of milk or saliva. Call our office right away and we will begin preparing for your arrival. Once the tooth is back in the socket, we can use splints to hold it in place until the gums reattach.
Is a broken or chipped tooth an emergency?
Broken teeth are often dental emergencies, but not always. If your tooth is merely chipped and it’s not painful, urgent care is not needed, but you can make an appointment with us, and we can fill in the chipped area with dental bonding. If your broken tooth is sharp or painful, we consider that a dental emergency, so you should call our office right away for an appointment.
How should I handle cuts to my lip, gum, cheek, or tongue?
The soft tissues in the mouth can bleed a great deal even when an injury is minor, so don’t panic! Use a clean cloth or sterile gauze to place pressure on the wound until it stops bleeding. Once bleeding is under control, use an ice pack to reduce any swelling. If the bleeding won’t stop, call your/your child’s physician or visit your local emergency room.
