Common Dental Emergencies
Learn how to address a sudden dental emergency at home as well as what we can do to help in our office:
Knocked-Out Permanent Tooth
If you have just lost a permanent tooth, don’t panic. Pick the tooth up by its crown, or top. Do not try to place it back in your mouth as this can damage the tooth roots. Place the tooth in a cup of cold milk to transport it to our office. We may be able to reattach the tooth if it is preserved in this way.
We can also provide you with a single dental implant to replace your tooth. Implants are durable, long-lasting restorations that look and feel just like natural teeth.
There are several common causes of toothaches, tooth sensitivity, and tooth pain. Patients with tooth pain may have worn teeth, gum disease, cavities, TMJ disorders, impacted teeth, or dental injuries. Contact our office if you have severe or sudden tooth pain. We will find the cause of your pain and recommend the right treatment to fit your needs.
Broken Dental Restoration
Have you just broken a tooth crown, dental bridge, or denture? Call our dental office immediately. Do not try to put your restoration back on your teeth or in your mouth. Bring the restoration to our office. If we cannot reattach it, we will help create a new, durable, and custom-made restoration.
Object Stuck Between Teeth
The best way to remove an object stuck between your teeth is to gently floss. Do not try any other methods, as this can damage your smile. Please contact us if you cannot remove the stuck object. Our dentists have specialized dental tools that can safely remove the object and alleviate any pain or soreness between your teeth.
It is normal for a tooth socket to continue bleeding after a dental extraction. However, it is abnormal for the extraction site to continue to bleed. Call our dental office if your extraction site is bleeding excessively days after your treatment. We will stop the bleeding and find the cause.
