Emergency Dental Care for Severe Toothache
If you experience a sudden, severe toothache, it’s most likely to be caused by decay, an abscessed tooth, infection of the gums, fractured tooth, or a damaged filling.
Treatment for your severe toothache will be determined by the cause of the pain, usually revealed by an examination and/or an x-ray. Treatments range from extraction of the tooth if it’s not preservable to replacing a damaged filling.
Emergency Dental Care for Chipped or Cracked Tooth
Treatment for a broken, cracked, or chipped tooth will depend on the severity of the condition; you may need a filling, a dental cap or crown, veneer, or a root canal to treat this injury.
Emergency Dental Care for Knocked Out Tooth or Loosened Tooth
If you have knocked out a tooth, see a dentist as soon as possible. If you can, try placing the tooth back in its socket, and if it’s not possible, keep the tooth securely in a cup of milk. If you wash the tooth, be careful as you could accidentally remove tissues attached to the root. Knocked out teeth have the best chance of being saved if they are replaced in the socket and treated by a dentist within an hour.
Emergency Dental Care for Lost Crown or Tooth Filling
If you lose a dental crown or filling, it’s imperative for you to seek replacement treatment as soon as possible. Generally, this will require an examination of the area to ensure that the structure of the tooth is still viable, and then a preparation of the area to replace the crown or filling.
Emergency Dental Care for Broken Orthodontic Wires or Brackets
If a wire breaks or sticks out of a bracket or band and is poking your cheek, tongue or gum, try using the eraser end of a pencil to push the wire into a more comfortable position. If you can't reposition the wire, cover the end with orthodontic wax, a small cotton ball, or piece of gauze until you can get to our office.
Emergency Dental Care for Injury to Mouth or Gums
An injury to the soft tissue of the mouth may include wounds, cuts, or lacerations to the cheek, tongue, or lips. A thorough exam will be conducted, including making sure that there is no associated damage to the bone or teeth. Treatment will depend on the severity of the damage. Generally, smaller surface wounds will heal on their own with proper care (this may include using an antibiotic). If the injury is large and severe, it may require stitches.
