The Most Common Dental Emergencies

Understanding what constitutes a dental emergency can help you decide when to seek immediate care. Here are some of the most common scenarios we handle:

Toothaches

Severe and persistent toothaches are often a sign of deep decay or an infection in the tooth’s pulp. Such conditions may require prompt treatment, like a root canal, to remove infected tissue and alleviate pain.

Chipped Or Cracked Tooth

These injuries can occur from biting down on something hard or an impact to the mouth. Minor chips might need simple smoothing, while significant cracks can compromise the tooth’s structure, requiring more intensive treatments like crowns or composite bonding.

Sensitivity To Hot & Cold

This usually indicates that the tooth’s enamel has worn down, exposing the dentin or root underneath. Treatment might involve applying a desensitizing agent or a protective restoration to reduce sensitivity and protect the tooth.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If a tooth is completely dislodged, time is critical for successful re-implantation. Handle the tooth by the crown (not the root), rinse it without scrubbing, and attempt to reinsert it into the socket. If that’s not possible, keep it moist in milk or saliva and get to our office immediately.

Lost Filling Or Crown

When a filling or crown falls out, the tooth is vulnerable to damage and decay. We can often reattach the original crown or create a new restoration to protect the tooth and restore functionality.

Broken Denture

Dentures that break can impair your ability to speak and eat properly. We can repair or replace broken dentures quickly, ensuring that you don’t have to go long without them.

Loose Tooth

A loose tooth in an adult could be caused by an injury or an infection attacking the supporting bone and tissues. Stabilization and treatment are necessary to save the tooth and prevent further damage.

Gums, Lips, Or Tongue Injury

Lacerations to soft tissues can lead to significant bleeding and may introduce bacteria that can cause infection. Proper cleaning and suturing may be required to promote healing.

Jaw Pain Or Clenching

This can be a symptom of TMJ disorders or may result from excessive stress on the jaw muscles and joints. Treatment options include mouthguards to prevent clenching and physical therapy.

Something Stuck Between Teeth

Objects stuck between teeth can cause pain and gum damage if not removed. Dental tools can safely extract the object without damaging the teeth or gums.

Understanding The Cost Of Dental Emergencies

We strive to make emergency dental care affordable and stress-free. While costs can vary depending on the severity of the emergency and required treatment, we offer transparent pricing and multiple payment options, including insurance and financing plans.

Dental Emergency FAQs

A dental emergency can include any sudden and severe oral injury or condition that requires immediate attention. This can include a knocked-out tooth, severe toothache, or broken filling.
