Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

If you’re suffering from an urgent dental condition, emergency dentistry can restore your oral health. Dental emergencies happen for many reasons, including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • Blow to the face
  • Biting down awkwardly on a hard piece of food

You might also need emergency dentistry services for a chronic or acute condition, like tooth decay or a toothache.

What conditions are considered dental emergencies?

Many dental concerns require emergency care, such as:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Chipped, fractured, or broken tooth
  • Severe toothache
  • Abscess
  • Cut or tear on your oral tissues
  • Loose tooth
  • Dislodged filling or crown

If you’re experiencing a condition not listed above and are unsure if it requires emergency care, don’t hesitate to call the offices at Presidential Dental Group. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and the team of friendly experts are happy to assess your situation over the phone and determine if you need to come in for emergency dentistry services.

How should I handle a knocked-out tooth?

If you’ve knocked out a tooth, you should get to the Presidential Dental Group office as soon as possible. The sooner you receive treatment for your knocked-out tooth, the more likely your dentist will be able to salvage it.

If you can locate your tooth, bring it with you to your appointment. Rinse it under lukewarm water, but avoid touching the tooth by its roots. Instead, hold it by the crown.

When transporting your tooth to the office, keep it in a glass of milk or saliva. This will keep the roots moist.

How do you treat a dental emergency?

Your specific treatment depends on the nature of your emergency. In many cases, emergency dentistry treatments are similar to regular dentistry treatments. If you’ve significantly damaged a tooth, for example, your dentist might fit you with a crown. Or if you have severe tooth decay, your dentist might recommend performing a root canal.
