Dental Emergencies

What qualifies as a dental emergency?

Any situation causing severe pain, bleeding, or trauma to the teeth or gums, like a knocked-out tooth, severe infection, or broken tooth, is an emergency.

Can I wait to see my dentist if my tooth is knocked out?

No, time is crucial. Try to see your dentist immediately, ideally within an hour, to increase the chance of saving the tooth.

What should I do if I have a severe toothache?

Rinse your mouth with warm water, gently use dental floss to remove any trapped food, and contact your dentist. Avoid applying aspirin directly to the gum.

How do I handle a chipped or broken tooth?

Save any pieces. Rinse your mouth and the fragments with warm water. If there’s bleeding, apply gauze, and use a cold compress to reduce swelling. See your dentist as soon as possible.

What can I do for a lost filling or crown?

Keep the crown or filling if you find it. For a lost filling, use sugar-free gum or dental cement as a temporary fix. If a crown falls out, dental cement can reattach it temporarily. See your dentist quickly.

What if I have a dental emergency and the office is closed?

Many dentists have an emergency contact number for after-hours. If not, visit the emergency room for immediate care, especially if the situation is severe.
