Should You Call a Dentist?

Woman with jaw painIf you’re in pain, unable to go to work or can’t eat, you need to seek immediate dental care. Some of the most common types of dental emergencies that we see include:

  • Knocked-out, broken or chipped teeth
  • Throbbing or sharp tooth pain
  • Bleeding gums
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Broken dentures
  • Swollen gums
  • Crown or filling falling out

What to do During a Dental Emergency

When it comes to dental injuries, fast action is crucial. If you’ve broken or knocked out a tooth, locate it immediately and store it in a sealed container with milk or saline. A whole tooth can be gently rinsed (do not scrub the root surface) and put back into the socket in some cases. Seeing us within the hour is crucial.

Bleeding? Apply a clean gauze or tea bag with firm pressure. If you’re unable to control any heavy bleeding, head to the nearest emergency room.

Don’t Wait Until You’re in Pain

Most dental emergencies can be avoided by having conditions such as tooth decay treated as soon as they’re diagnosed. As a prevention-based team, we aim to carefully screen each patient for concerns while they’re easily managed.
