Below are some of the most common dental emergencies we treat, and how to take care of them in the meantime. However, if your dental emergency is not on this list, do not hesitate to call us anyway! Our well-versed dental professionals have the experience and knowledge to handle whatever dental emergency you may have.

Broken Tooth, Chipped Tooth, or Lost Tooth

Should you break, chip, crack, or lose a tooth, please give our emergency dentists a call today! Tooth damage can be extremely painful, so it is important to get into a dentist’s chair as soon as possible to relieve the pain early on. If your dental emergency involves a damaged tooth, rinse your mouth out with warm water and apply an icepack to the affected area. If a piece of the tooth or the tooth itself came out, make sure to locate it and bring it along with you to the dentist. Do not let the tooth or tooth fragment dry out. You’ll want to either keep it in an emergency tooth preservation kit, a glass of milk, or in your mouth next to your cheek or under your tongue. If the tooth is knocked out of the socket, gently insert the tooth back in and hold it in place. Go to the dentist IMMEDIATELY after tooth-related trauma occurs.

Severe Bitten Tongue or Lip

Most cases of bitten tongue or lip are mild and will heal on their own. However, if you experience and intense bite that has either removed a significant amount of tissue or caused a significant laceration, it is time to see an emergency dentist. Clean the area with warm water, and hold ice to the affected area to reduce swelling for the time being. Then go to the dentist or an emergency center IMMEDIATELY.

Broken Jaw

You may not know immediately whether a jaw injury you’ve sustained is a break or not. However, if there is even the slightest suspicion that the injury could be a fracture, contact your emergency dentist IMMEDIATELY. Holding ice to the affected area can help ease the pain and reduce swelling, but the best course of action will be going in right away to see your emergency dental professional.
