What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is most commonly associated with pain. The pain may be due to an infected tooth, an abscess in the gum or an unknown source of tooth pain. Pain may radiate throughout the mouth into the head and ears. The following are some common issues that require emergency dental treatment:
=
Tooth infection
=
Facial swelling due to unknown source
=
Toothache
=
Abscessed tooth or gums
=
Mouth or jaw pain from an unknown source
=
Cracked or broken tooth
If your situation is life-threatening, then a visit to the local emergency department (ED) is imperative. At the same time, a broken jaw or excessive bleeding that will not stop are also reasons to head to the ED. But if your situation is not life-threatening, we have the tools to help.

What to do During a Dental Emergency

When you call us for a dental emergency visit, mention to the receptionist that you are having an emergency, so he or she can schedule a priority visit for you. If you have to wait to come in, there are things you can do at home during a dental emergency to help reduce discomfort and possibly even save a tooth. The following guide can help.

Toothaches are the most common dental emergency. They are a result of hidden decay that can infect the tooth and root, causing pain that radiates into the bone and surrounding teeth. Over-the-counter pain medication is the first step to help reduce pain and swelling. Try dabbing clove oil onto the tooth, or add a drop of clove oil and a drop of olive oil to a cotton ball and rest it on the tooth, allowing the oil to soak in. If you don’t have oil, crush some of the herbs and place it on the tooth.

Another home remedy for a toothache, until you can see a dentist, is to use turmeric paste, made with a little of the herb mixed with water until it is a paste-like substance. Place it onto the tooth for pain relief and to help reduce the chance of infection. A cold or warm compress on the cheek may also help provide comfort. Call our office to schedule an appointment right away and let us know you are in pain.

An abscess is a bump or bubble on the gum, and is the result of an infection. These should be treated as soon as possible to avoid the infection from spreading. Schedule an emergency visit with us so the dentist can find the cause of the infection and eliminate it. Try rinsing with a solution of warm salt water with a dash of baking soda every couple of hours to help slow the spread of infection and try over-the-counter pain medication until you can get in to see us. Other home remedies to try are clove oil for pain, oregano essential oil mixed with olive or coconut oil to ward of more infection, and a cold compress to reduce swelling.

Chipped or broken teeth may not be painful, but being proactive can help prevent infection. Depending upon the situation, we may be able to quickly repair it with dental bonding or with another treatment. Call our office right away to schedule an emergency dental visit then rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water every hour or so to ensure the tooth stays clean.

Cracked teeth may happen due to an accident during sports or other rough activities. If a cracked tooth results in pain, try over-the-counter pain relievers to calm pain and reduce any associated swelling. Gently rinse with warm salt water to reduce the chance of infection and call us to schedule an emergency dental visit.

Knocked-out teeth may be the result of an accident, and there is hope if you lose a tooth. If you can save it, quickly rinse the broken tooth with water, but do not scrub or wash it. If it can fit back into place, quickly put it back into the socket. If you cannot fit it back into the socket, place it in a glass of full-fat milk or saline solution and let us know. Often if one can get to the dentist within 30 minutes, a tooth may be saved.
