What is a dental emergency?
If you or a loved one ever experience overwhelming dental pain, bleeding, or swelling, please give our office a call so our team can advise. It’s not always easy to tell what situations require urgent treatment, but the following examples are common dental emergencies that patients experience:
- Unbearable Toothache
- Cracked or Broken Tooth
- Knocked-Out Adult Tooth
- Dental Abscess
- Lost Dental Restoration
- Excessive Swelling or Bleeding
What can I do before my emergency appointment?
If dental trauma has caused severe bleeding, we recommend gently pressing a piece of clean cloth or gauze over the area for at least 15 minutes before checking to see if the bleeding has stopped. If a tooth has come out completely, carefully pick it up by the crown, rinse it off, and try to place it back in the socket or put it in a glass of milk. Rinsing your mouth with a warm saltwater rinse can help cleanse the area and numb pain. Ice packs and Ibuprofen help reduce swelling, while Tylenol is better for bleeding, as it’s not a blood thinner.
Is emergency dental care expensive?
When it comes to dental care and dental emergencies, one of the best things you can do is to seek treatment immediately before your situation requires more invasive and costly treatments. Some dental insurance plans offer full or partial coverage for emergency dental care, so we recommend checking with your provider to see what they cover. We also accept flexible financing through CareCredit®, which can help you get the care you need right away and divide up the upfront cost of emergency dental care into equal monthly payments.Learn More
