How We Treat Dental Emergencies

A patient had two teeth completely knocked out onto the ground while playing ball.

Actual Patient Treated in this Office.

 

 

We told the mother to put them in milk and bring the child to the office immediately. We managed to re-implant the actual teeth and get them smiling again.

After 6 weeks of healing, the teeth were stable.

 

We also created a custom made sports guard so such an accident would not happen again.

What Constitutes A Dental Emergency?

 

Any tooth injury, pain or swelling in the jaw or mouth may require immediate attention. Loose or lost crowns or fillings can cause severe pain that shouldn't wait for treatment. Swelling, throbbing and sensitivity can indicate infected root pulp that requires an immediate root canal procedure before the infection becomes worse or spreads.

 

Teeth that have been knocked out can be replanted, but the best chance for saving the tooth is treatment within 30 minutes of the event. For best results, try to reinsert the tooth or, if that doesn't work, store it in milk until you can get to our office. Call us at the first sign of a toothache and let our 24-Hour Dentists preserve your smile.

 

If you need your teeth cleaned or a cavity filled, you can usually wait until regular office hours. But with the following situations, you may need immediate dental attention:

 

• Knocked-out teeth (avulsed)

• Severely cracked teeth

• Severe toothaches

• Dislodged crowns causing severe pain

• Loose fillings causing severe pain

• Severe facial swelling

• Severe bleeding gums

• Severe tooth pain
