Signs of a Dental Emergency

What exactly is a dental emergency? Our general rule of thumb: you’ll know when you feel it. Most are very painful, a toothache, a broken or chipped tooth, a loose cap. Others result in bleeding. If your teeth are bleeding or under severe pain, you probably need to see us right away. Other examples of dental emergencies are chipped tooth repair, broken or cracked fillings, tooth crown pain, or a broken tooth extraction.

We advise:

  • Handle the tooth by the top.
  • Avoid touching the roots.
  • Rinse the tooth very gently.
  • Don’t scrub the tooth or attempt to remove any tissue attached to it.

Some common dental emergencies include a fractured or cracked tooth, a chipped tooth, a loose teeth, a mouth injury or facial pain. And even if the pain is not overwhelming, or can be controlled by Tylenol, it is critical to address it right way before the problem becomes worse and very expensive.

Give us a call and describe your symptoms. We’ll get you in right away and even suggest self-care methods to provide relief on the phone.

Don’t Feel Any Pain? Call Us Anyway!

Sometimes you have a dental emergency but don’t feel any pain. That’s fortunate. Maybe you had a root canal in the affected area and no longer feel sensation. Regardless, you should still call us anyway. We still need to see you as soon as possible.

If your filling fell out but you feel no pain, the dental issue still exists. A tooth may be exposed, which means the cavity will continue to grow and cause problems. You may risk serious infection that could make you severely sick. You may splinter the tooth, which could result in tooth loss or the need for an expensive dental implant.

Whether you’re in pain or not, dental issues are always best dealt with proactively. If you need to see an emergency dentist, give us a call. We’ll get you in as soon as possible.
