Emergency Dental Treatments

We consider these conditions reason for an emergency:

  • Knocked-out permanent teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Abscess
  • Missing fillings or crowns with exposed nerves
  • Dental infection

Dental Emergency Preparation

Dental emergencies happen at the worst times and at any time. You can safeguard yourself against some impending emergencies by wearing a mouthguard during physical activities and staying away from hard candy that might break sensitive teeth. It’s always important to be prepared. You should create a dental first aid kit with a small container that holds any missing teeth, acetaminophen to reduce pain, and gauze for bleeding.

What To Do Between Emergency and Appointment

Between the time of your emergency and your appointment, you can do a few things to stay calm and promote recovery, including:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water.
  • Keep your lost or broken fragments of teeth in a glass of milk. Try to reinsert your tooth and keep it in place with a gauze pad.
  • Write down details of the accident so we can better serve you.

What Should I Expect From An Emergency Appointment?

We’ll keep you calm first and foremost during your emergency appointment. Our Mountain Shadows Family Dental professionals will locate and treat the cause of the dental emergency. We will offer pain relief if needed and may need to remove a tooth causing pain. We may be able to reinsert a tooth if you’ve knocked one out, or we will replace it with a bridge or recommend an implant. If you have an abscess, we will attempt to remove it with a root canal, tooth extraction, or incision for drainage. If you need further treatment, we will fit you in as soon as possible. We’ll take care of you with precision and compassion during emergency visits.

Visit The ER vs. the Dentist

Dental emergencies can require different levels of care. If your life is threatened, you need to go to the emergency room. The ER should treat dislocations, severe infections, fractures, and severe lacerations. If you are not at immediate risk of harm, an emergency trip to the dentist is in your best interest. We have the knowledge and experience to treat most dental emergencies in a safe and calm environment.
