Emergency Dental Services

Emergency dental services provide relief from severe pain or swelling in or around the mouth and provide treatment for any new facial impact or trauma, which may have affected teeth. The emergency dental treatment could provide short and long-term relief, dependent on the severity of the damage.

Reasons for an Emergency Dental Visit

  • A toothache that does not go away after brushing, rinsing, and flossing.
  • A broken tooth: a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth is a sign to immediately call your dentist. If possible, it is best to keep the tooth in the mouth or, if there is any danger of the patient accidentally swallowing the tooth, in a cup of milk. Avoid keeping the tooth in tap water as it may damage the roots of teeth. To prevent unnecessary damage, it is best to avoid holding the tooth by the root.
  • Swelling or sore gums warrant an emergency visit to the dentist. Place a cold compress on the inflamed area and visit your dentist.
  • If you have cut or bitten the soft tissue in your mouth and the bleeding does not stop, apply pressure, and then seek out an emergency dental visit. Stitches may be needed for larger and deep wounds.
  • If you believe you may have broken your jaw, see your emergency dentist immediately.
