Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is a Dental Emergency?

Some dental emergencies, such as a knocked-out tooth, obviously need urgent care. Other issues that result from trauma might not seem dire at first but could benefit from immediate care to prevent complications such as swelling, pain, and infection.

Common dental emergencies include:

  • Extreme gum or mouth pain
  • A broken tooth
  • Severe tooth pain
  • Sudden bleeding or swelling in soft tissue
  • A loose or missing crown or filling

 

If you experience any of these, contact PDADental right away. The staff will evaluate your oral needs and provide appropriate care.

What Can I Do While Waiting for an Emergency Dental Appointment?

If you experience a dental emergency, call PDADental first. While on your way to the office or while waiting for your appointment, take the appropriate steps to ease your pain and save your tooth.

If you have a knocked-out tooth, find the tooth and brush off any debris, but leave the root intact. If possible, place it back in the socket to preserve it or hold it in milk as you make you’re way to the office.

If you have swelling in your gums or inside of your cheek or severe tooth pain, apply a cold compress to the outside of your face and get to the office right away.

Cracked or chipped teeth might not be an emergency situation – but the only way to know is to get them checked immediately. Rinse your mouth with salt water and head in for your appointment.
