Emergency Dental Q & A

What are Emergency Dental Services?

If there is any sudden issue with your teeth or gums this is a dental emergency. If an injury goes beyond the mouth or is life threatening you should go directly to an emergency room at a hospital. The most common dental emergencies involve damage to teeth or damage to dental objects like implants, bridges, fillings and crowns.

How Do You Handle A Knocked Out Tooth?

When an adult tooth is knocked out for any reason, it can be an extremely scary situation. Like with many emergencies it is important to understand what to do. First and foremost, a knocked out adult tooth can sometimes be reimplanted but only if you get to a dentist quickly and take care of the tooth correctly. The tooth should only be touched by the crown (the part of the tooth that is usually visible). It should be rinsed off with tap water. If possible the tooth should be placed back in the person’s mouth who lost it. If not, if should be kept in a saline solution (most first aid kits have solution specifically for lost teeth) or kept in milk. For the person who lost the tooth, if there bleeding you should use gauze or a clean cloth to put pressure on the wound and stop the bleeding. If there is pain or swelling, you should use an ice pack or a cold compress to help relieve the pain and stop the swelling.

Is A Chipped Tooth An Emergency?

A chipped or cracked tooth might not be an emergency, but no matter what you should have it looked at. In some cases a small chip or crack can be purely cosmetic especially if it only impacts the enamel (the outermost layer of your tooth). But it could also lead to your tooth breaking in the future or lead to infection if the dentin or tooth pulp is exposed. No matter what, you should call a dentist so that they can provide a professional opinion.
