Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry provides prompt attention to serious oral health problems. It’s a quick, effective, and convenient way to preserve your smile in the event of an accident or injury.

If you bite down on a hard object and crack your tooth or a tooth falls out after an impact, seek out emergency dental care as soon as possible. Making it to the nearest ToothDocs office within an hour of your initial symptoms could mean the difference between saving a tooth or undergoing oral surgery.

What problems does emergency dentistry treat?

The team at ToothDocs uses emergency dentistry to treat various oral health problems, including:

  • Fractured or broken teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Severe toothaches
  • Bleeding that won’t stop
  • Swollen lips or gums
  • Oral abscesses
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Objects lodged between the teeth

You might also benefit from emergency dentistry if you damage or lose a dental restoration, like a dental crown, dental bridge, or dental implant.

What should I do if I lose a tooth or dental restoration?

If you lose a tooth or dental restoration, don’t wait to take action.

If a permanent tooth gets knocked out, carefully pick it up and rinse it in cool tap water. Try to put the tooth back in its socket, but if it wobbles around, tuck it inside your cheek. Call the team at ToothDocs right away and explain the events leading up to your injury. The administrative staff can make recommendations to limit pain, swelling, or bleeding on your way to the office.

If you lose a dental restoration, carefully pick up any pieces and put them inside a plastic bag. Call the team at ToothDocs and let them know what caused the damage and its severity. Whenever possible, the team sets aside time for same-day emergency dentistry appointments, ensuring you receive rapid care.

How can I protect my teeth from a dental emergency?

The easiest way to protect your teeth from a dental emergency is to practice good oral hygiene. The team at ToothDocs recommends brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and visiting the nearest office every six months for an oral exam and professional cleaning.

If you play contact or extreme sports, always wear a mouthguard. Avoid bad habits, too. Biting your nails, chewing on hard objects like ice cubes, and opening objects with your teeth significantly increase your risk of tooth loss, receding gums, and damage to your enamel.
