Why Choose Renaissance Dental for Emergency Dentistry?

How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

While some dental emergencies usually take months to develop before symptoms can appear, others can happen in an instant, such as a physical injury from a bad fall or sporting accident. No matter the cause, you should start by calling our office the moment you notice dental discomfort. This way, we can get you scheduled for an urgent dental appointment and provide first-aid tips over the phone. Here’s what you should do next in the event of the following dental emergencies.

Toothaches

Start by gently flossing around the tooth to ensure no food particles are stuck in between them. If pain persists, take ibuprofen. However, you should avoid placing aspirin directly onto the gums near the tooth.

Chipped/Broken Tooth

Collect all the pieces of the tooth that you can and bring them to our office. If bleeding is present, use a clean rag or napkin to create a cold compress, then apply that compress to your face to reduce any swelling. If your tooth is sharp or jagged following the break, cover it with dental wax or sugar-free chewing gum if nothing else is available to prevent additional soft tissue injuries.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Touch the crown portion of the tooth only. Avoid removing any tissue that’s attached to the pointed end (the root). Gently rinse it with water and place the tooth either in the open socket or under the tongue to keep it preserved. Get to our office within an hour so you can improve your chances of getting the tooth reimplanted.

Lost Filling/Crown

Rinse the restoration before attaching it back onto the tooth using dental cement, denture adhesive, or chewing gum as a last resort. Schedule a visit with our office right away to get the restoration repaired. You can cover the damaged portion of the tooth temporarily if needed.

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

Every dental emergency will have a unique cost. This is because it depends on the patient’s unique situation. However, if one thing is true, it’s that you should seek help as soon as you can. Waiting to treat the problem only allows it to get worse and require even more complex treatment. If you want to end your discomfort and reduce your oral healthcare costs, call us right away.
