What is a dental emergency?
Are you unsure if you are experiencing a dental emergency? If you are experiencing sharp, shooting pain, have had a tooth knocked loose or out, or have a broken or damaged dental restoration, you may be experiencing a dental emergency. While care may not seem to be immediately necessary, it is important to seek professional dental help as soon as you can.
Treating a dental emergency promptly can allow for more conservative treatment options and prevent further damage to your smile. Call our office right away if you are having a dental emergency. Our highly trained front desk staff can often help talk you through what to do.
What if I’m experiencing sudden and intense pain?
If you are experiencing sharp or shooting pain in your tooth our jaw call your dentist. Pain is commonly caused by tooth decay or a root canal infection but in rare cases is created by an abscess. An abscess is a serious medical condition that needs to be diagnosed and treated by a dentist. Prompt treatment can help prevent further dental issues and will help to relieve your discomfort.
What if my tooth gets knocked out and lost?
If your tooth gets knocked out in a sports injury or accident remain calm and call our Claremont dentist office. You can apply a clean, damp cloth to the site of the lost tooth to stop any bleeding. If you can locate the tooth handle it only by the crown (top of the tooth) and try to allow the root structure to remain attached. Place the tooth in a glass of milk or your own saliva. Bring the tooth with you to the dentist. The tooth may be able to be saved if attended to within a few hours.
What if my dental crown breaks or falls out?
If a dental crown, filling or other dental restoration breaks, becomes loose or falls out, it is essential to call our dentist office as soon as possible. You will most likely need to be seen for an emergency visit. Ignoring the issue can lead to infection and even tooth loss. If you can locate the restoration bring the piece with you to the dentist. NEVER attempt to reattach the filling or crown by yourself.
