Emergency Dental Care: When to Call

I’m not sure if I should look for emergency dental care near me. When is it time to book an appointment for urgent dental care?

There’s no need to suffer when a dental emergency strikes. If you’re experiencing any of the following oral health issues, give our office a call to book an appointment.

Fractured, Broken, or Chipped Teeth

If you’ve accidentally broken or fractured your tooth, seeking help immediately can prevent infection or further damage. We recommend covering the jagged edges of the broken or fractured tooth with dental wax, then calling our office so schedule an appointment.

Avulsed Teeth

In dental terminology, “avulsed teeth” simply means “knocked-out teeth.” While this condition can be frightening, it’s important to note that emergency dentists can often restore your knocked-out tooth if you seek care quickly. Try to find as many tooth fragments as you can, and gently rinse them with warm water. Call us immediately if you need further instructions.

Toothache Pain and Pressure

Severe, throbbing toothache pain or pressure can be caused by a number of dental ailments. Our emergency dentists can treat the source of the toothache, easing your pain and preventing the issue from recurring.

Oral Sensitivity

While it’s not uncommon to experience occasional tooth sensitivity, a hypersensitive tooth can be cause for concern. A tooth that suddenly becomes sensitive may be fractured or infected.

Dental Decay (Cavities)

When tooth decay builds up, a cavity can form inside the tooth. Large cavities leave the tooth’s root exposed, creating extreme discomfort in some cases. See our emergency dentists as soon as possible if you suspect you have a cavity.

Dental Abscess

If gum disease or tooth decay is left untreated, a dental abscess can form at the tooth’s root. This infection can cause a tremendous amount of pain, along with fever, bad breath, and other symptoms. An abscessed tooth can lead to more severe complications, so treatment should be administered as soon as possible.

Missing or Loose Tooth Fillings

Fillings protect your teeth from further decay or injury. If you have lost or loose fillings, the affected teeth are exposed to damage. Call us immediately if you require a replacement filling.

Missing or Broken Tooth Crowns and Restorations

If you’ve broken or lost your dental crown or restoration, it can cause cosmetic flaws in your smile. However, broken crowns or lost restorations also leave the exposed area vulnerable to decay and damage. Our emergency dentists can provide a solution that restores your healthy smile.

Orthodontic Discomfort

Metal wires and brackets can occasionally cause orthodontic pain or injuries. If wearing your braces is uncomfortable, we can help. Our emergency dentists can adjust and stabilize your braces so they can be worn comfortably.

Teeth Grinding

Many people grind their teeth at night, causing damage to their tooth enamel over time. When enamel pain becomes too severe, see our dentists for a solution. You may require enamel reinforcement or a protective night guard.

Sinus Pain and Pressure

The sinuses and teeth are connected, consequently many dental health issues affect the sinuses, including infection and obstructed wisdom teeth. Sinus pressure that’s accompanied by a toothache should always be evaluated.

What to Do When Your Condition is Serious

I am concerned that my dental issue is serious. Should I get in touch with an emergency dental office near me, or contact 911?

Some dental injuries and conditions require immediate care that can’t always be provided at an emergency dental office. Call 911, your primary care doctor, or visit the nearest hospital if you experience the following:

  • Uncontrollable oral bleeding
  • Severe facial pain and swelling
  • Blunt trauma to the facial area, including the head, teeth, and jaw

What is the Cost of Emergency Dental Care?

Our emergency dentists provide a personalized treatment plan for each patient, so costs will vary depending on your unique situation. The cost of emergency dental care typically includes any necessary procedures, the materials used, and any required follow-up appointments. Our practice accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans for your convenience. Call us today to learn more about our payment options.
