  • Tooth knocked out: First, try to stick the tooth back in place and hold it there while you rush to see the dentist. If that’s impossible, put the tooth is a container of milk (or water if milk is not available) and take it and the patient to the dentist immediately.
  • Fractured Tooth: To avoid further aggravating the damaged tooth, place a piece of soft wax into the area of the tooth that was chipped. You should eat only soft foods and try to avoid food and drink that are hot and cold to the touch until you can contact us with you emergency dental issue.
  • Broken or lost filling: While having a filling come out or break may not seem like a dental emergency, it is many times the result of a deeper problem in the tooth such as decay underneath the filling or a crack in the tooth. If this is not treated the problem can become much more serious resulting in the need for a root canal and a crown.
  • Abscessed tooth: An abscessed tooth can cause incredible pain, and sometimes it is even difficult to tell which area of your mouth the pain is coming from. An abscess will definitely send you out looking for an emergency dentist! In most cases an abscessed tooth will need a root canal or an extraction, both of which we can do right here in our office in a short period of time.
  • Broken crowns: If your dental emergency is an existing crown that has come off, do not wait to come see our dentists. Many times the crown can be cemented back on, but sometimes the crown has come off of the tooth because of decay underneath the crown. In this case a new crown will have to be made.
  • Toothache: An aching tooth is a very common dental emergency. A toothache is often a sign of infection in or around a tooth. Tylenol or aspirin can sometimes be effective in temporarily comforting pain. If there is a hole in the tooth, you may place Oil of Cloves on a small cotton pellet and place it in the site to temporarily relieve pain. Come see our dentists to find the cause of your discomfort and a treatment plan to get you comfortable again!
  • Many times a tooth that is infected or inflamed will be very sensitive to hot or especially cold. Cold drinks will cause pain to shoot through the area around the tooth. Pain when biting down and applying pressure to the tooth is also a telling sign of infection or abscess. These symptoms may linger or come and go, but once you experience them they are likely to only get worse.
