Emergency Dentist Need – Frequently Asked Questions

What’s Considered a Dental Emergency?

Not every dental problem is an emergency. For example, if your smile doesn’t look white enough, this isn’t an “emergency.” However, if you fall and one of your teeth become damaged or even knocked out, that’s an emergency. Severe pain or bleeding that won’t stop from a tooth or your gums is also a dental emergency. If you’re unsure if you are experiencing a dental emergency or not, feel free to contact us.

Knocked-Out or a Dislodged Tooth?

One of the most troubling dental emergencies that requires immediate attention is when a tooth is knocked out or dislodged.  If a tooth is knocked out, you need to first apply gauze or a towel to the bleeding socket.  Light pressure will help the bleeding stop. Next, you need to find the knocked-out tooth.  Pick it up by the crown and then rinse it off. Place your knocked-out tooth in a cup of milk, saliva or saltwater to prevent it from drying out. Your tooth needs to be replaced back in your mouth as soon as possible for successful re-integration.  After 30 minutes it becomes less likely the knocked out tooth can be “saved.”

Is a Damaged or Missing Restoration an Emergency?

Restorations like fillings, crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers or bridges keep your existing teeth healthy or looking good. If one of your restorations becomes damaged, loose, or falls out entirely, this is indeed a dental emergency. The longer you leave your restoration damaged, the more likely other problems can occur. Please contact Mandarin Dentistry immediately to address this dental emergency.

Is a Damaged Tooth a real “emergency?”

When a tooth breaks, cracks, or chips, it IS a “dental emergency”. A damaged tooth can cause more problems than just the physical damage you see. A big enough crack can lead to an infected tooth which may require a root canal. If you damage your tooth in any way, it’s helpful to have it assessed to ensure there isn’t a bigger problem.

Is a Tooth Abscess or infection an emergency?

Another dental emergency you might experience is a tooth abscess.  An abscess usually occurs when a cavity has gone untreated.  The abscess may appear on the outside of the tooth along the gumline or near the tooth root.  The area will look swollen and feel painful and tender.  If the abscess ruptures, it will give you a sensation of pain relief and taste a foul salty liquid.   Other symptoms of a tooth abscess include fever, facial swelling, temperature and pressure sensitivity and throbbing pain. If you believe you have a tooth abscess, please contact Mandarin Dentistry immediately!

Is a Toothache an “EMERGENCY?”

There are many reasons why you might experience a toothache. When you first notice the toothache, try rinsing your mouth and brushing and flossing your teeth first. Often a toothache is simply the result of a piece of food stuck in between the teeth. If the pain persists, try taking over-the-counter pain medication. If the pain becomes too much, please contact Mandarin Dentistry immediately.
