What is a dental emergency?

If a dental issue requires immediate treatment, it is considered an emergency. Not addressing the problem may result in the loss of a tooth, excessive bleeding, pain, etc.

In most cases, you’ll know whether or not it’s an emergency. Call our office today if you believe you need immediate treatment!

What are some examples of dental emergencies?

Patients visit our office for a wide array of dental emergencies. Some of the most common include:

Tooth Extraction

We don’t like pulling teeth as much as you don’t like getting them removed. This is why we do everything we can to save a problem tooth. We only resort to extraction if:

  • The tooth is damaged beyond repair
  • There is severe overcrowding or impacting
  • There is severe decay or infection

Chipped/Cracked/Fractured Teeth

A chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth is serious. It can affect your teeth’s structural integrity and even lead to infection.

To adequately address your broken tooth, we will do an X-ray.

Damage to the pulp (the soft tissue inside of the tooth) means you’ll likely need a root canal. Damage to the outside might mean you just need a crown. Whatever the problem, our team will come up with the best course of action.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If one of your teeth gets knocked out, it’s essential to call a dentist right away. This will increase the chances of us being able to reinsert the tooth successfully.

You can also increase your chances of saving the tooth by adequately preserving it. Do this by picking up the tooth by the crown and gently washing it off. Carefully place the tooth back in the socket and bite down.
