How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Whether your dental emergency stems from an accident that happened in the blink of an eye or an infection that took multiple months to develop, the best thing to do is seek out professional care right away. Our team will be able to relieve any pain and repair dental damage right away before the problem has the chance to worsen. Before you’re able to reach us, however, there are a few first-aid tips you can use on your own to handle various dental mishaps:

Toothaches

Is the pain dull and persistent, or sharp and severe? For minor pain, start by flossing around the tooth to dislodge anything that might be stuck between the teeth. If the pain is overwhelming, however, place a cold compress on the face and take an OTC medication.

Chipped/Broken Tooth

Place a cold compress on the same side of the face as the tooth for 10 minutes at a time to reduce any swelling and pain. Gather up any large pieces of the tooth you can find, and put a piece of sugar-free gum or dental wax over the remaining tooth to blunt any jagged-edges.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If the tooth is only partially dislodged, try to gently push it back into place, and hold it there by biting down onto a piece of gauze. However, for fully knocked out teeth, recover it and call us as soon as possible—we can replant the tooth only an hour or so after the initial accident!

Lost Filling/Crown

Find the restoration, give it a quick rinse, and try to place it back onto the tooth—a dab of toothpaste can help with this. If the tooth is feeling some pain or sensitivity, an OTC medication can help provide temporary relief.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

As you can see from this page, there are many different kinds of dental emergencies, and because of this, there is no fixed price for urgent dental care. One patient might just need a prescription to feel better, while another may require a root canal and crown. Every situation is different, and we will quickly go over your options so you’ll know exactly what you’ll be expected to pay.
