What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Any time your teeth or oral tissues cause you severe or prolonged pain warrants emergency care. Pain is a sign that your body needs help.

Most frequently, we see the following cases on an emergency basis:

  • Abscesses – an abscess indicates a strong infection, and should be lanced and treated with antibiotics as soon as possible
  • Tooth Infection – when a tooth aches, it’s most likely caused by bacteria invading the tooth. Don’t risk tooth loss, get an emergency root canal from us as soon as possible.
  • Emergency Cosmetics – Chip a tooth right before an important event? We can make immediate adjustments in time for your big day.
  • Lost Teeth – If a tooth falls out, it’s not necessarily lost forever. Under the right circumstances, we can reattach it. Keep your tooth moist and come to us within 24 hours, and we may be able to reattach it. If not, we will explore replacement options with you.

What’s in a Dental Emergency Kit?

It’s good to have an emergency kit handy, this way you can be proactive and minimize the damage from emergencies.

Your kit should include painkillers, wound care materials, and a method to store avulsed teeth. Choose non-steroidal inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen, to minimize your discomfort and prevent excessive bleeding. Gauze and cotton balls can prevent excessive bleeding as well. Lastly, a Save-a-Tooth kit or appropriate solution and a container can work to keep your tooth alive for reattachment.
