The Importance of Seeing the Dentist in a Dental Emergency

  • Pain Relief: Dental emergencies can be excruciatingly painful, affecting your overall well-being. Our experienced dentists can provide effective pain relief and alleviate discomfort quickly.
  • Preventing Complications: Delaying treatment for a dental emergency can lead to more severe complications, such as infections, abscesses, or permanent tooth loss. Early intervention helps avoid these issues and preserves your oral health.
  • Restoring Functionality: Whether you've chipped a tooth or lost a filling, our emergency dental services are focused on restoring your oral functionality, ensuring you can chew and speak comfortably again.
  • Preserving Your Smile: Our skilled dental team is dedicated to preserving your natural smile. By promptly addressing dental emergencies, we can often save damaged teeth and prevent the need for more extensive treatments later on.

A Full Range of Emergency Services

  • Cracked Tooth Repair: When a tooth is cracked, it can cause pain, sensitivity, and compromised structural integrity. Cracked tooth repair involves various techniques to restore the tooth's strength and function. Depending on the severity of the crack, treatment options may include dental bonding, dental veneers, dental crowns, or root canal therapy. These procedures aim to protect the tooth, alleviate pain, and prevent further damage.
  • Crowns: Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are tooth-shaped restorations that cover the entire visible portion of a damaged tooth. They are commonly used to restore teeth that have undergone significant decay, fractures, or have undergone root canal therapy. Crowns provide strength, protection, and improve the appearance of a tooth. They are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, providing a durable and aesthetic solution.
  • Fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been affected by cavities or minor damage. During the procedure, the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth is removed, and the resulting space is filled with a dental material such as composite resin or amalgam. The filling restores the tooth's shape, function, and prevents further decay. Tooth-colored fillings are often used for their aesthetic appeal, blending seamlessly with the natural tooth.

  • Root Canals: Root canal treatment becomes necessary when the innermost part of the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected or inflamed. This can happen due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or trauma. During a root canal procedure, the infected pulp is carefully removed, the root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. This treatment relieves pain, eliminates infection, and preserves the natural tooth. 
  • Tooth Extractions: Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure may be necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease, overcrowding, or trauma. The extraction process is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be required for impacted teeth or teeth with complex root structures. 
  • Wisdom Tooth Removals: Wisdom tooth removal is a common dental procedure involving the extraction of the third molars, also known as wisdom teeth. These teeth often emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood and can cause problems due to limited space in the mouth. Wisdom teeth may become impacted, partially erupted, or grow at an angle, leading to pain, infections, and damage to adjacent teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my dental insurance cover emergency dental treatments?

Dental insurance coverage varies depending on the policy. Most dental insurance plans provide coverage for emergency dental treatments. Contact your dental insurance provider to understand your coverage and discuss any potential out-of-pocket expenses.

What should I do if I have a tooth knocked out?

If a tooth is knocked out, try to reinsert it gently into its socket. If not possible, keep the tooth moist by placing it in milk or saliva and see a dentist immediately. Time is critical for successful re-implantation, so act quickly.

What is considered a dental emergency?

A dental emergency refers to any sudden and unexpected dental issue that requires immediate attention to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, or save a tooth. Examples include severe toothaches, knocked-out teeth, broken teeth, and oral infections.

Should I go to the emergency room or a dentist for a dental emergency?

In most cases, it is best to seek emergency dental care from a dentist for dental emergencies. Dentists are specifically trained to handle dental issues and can provide specialized treatments and pain relief. However, if you experience a severe facial injury or suspect a broken jaw, it is recommended to visit the emergency room first.

How soon should I see a dentist for a dental emergency?

It is crucial to seek dental care as soon as possible for a dental emergency. Prompt treatment increases the chances of saving a tooth, alleviates pain, and prevents complications. Contact your dentist immediately for guidance and to schedule an appointment.

How can I relieve a severe toothache before seeing a dentist?

Rinse your mouth with warm water, gently floss around the affected tooth to remove any trapped debris, and apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek to reduce swelling. Avoid placing aspirin or any pain-relieving gel directly on the tooth, as it may cause damage.

How can I prevent dental emergencies?

While some emergencies are unavoidable, you can reduce the risk of dental emergencies by maintaining good oral hygiene, wearing mouthguards during sports activities, avoiding chewing on hard objects, and scheduling regular dental check-ups to detect and address potential issues early.

Can I use over-the-counter painkillers for dental pain?

Over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help temporarily alleviate dental pain before seeing a dentist. However, it is important to remember that they provide temporary relief and should not substitute professional dental care.

Can a cracked tooth heal on its own?

Unfortunately, a cracked tooth cannot heal on its own. It requires professional dental treatment to prevent further damage and infection. If you have a cracked tooth, visit your emergency dentist for an evaluation and appropriate treatment options.
