When to Seek Emergency Dental Care

Certain oral health conditions and injuries require urgent attention from an experienced dentist. If you or a family member experiences any of the following situations, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention:

  • Severe tooth or mouth pain: Persistent and intense dental pain may indicate an underlying issue that requires immediate treatment.
  • A loose permanent tooth: If one of your permanent teeth becomes loose, it is essential to have it evaluated by a dentist as soon as possible.
  • A cracked or broken tooth: Cracks or fractures in teeth can lead to further damage and infection if left untreated. Seek prompt dental care if you have a cracked or broken tooth.
  • Bleeding from your gums, cheeks, or tongue: Excessive bleeding from your oral tissues may indicate a serious oral health problem that requires immediate attention.
  • Facial or mouth injuries: Trauma to your face or mouth, such as fractures, dislocations, or severe lacerations, necessitates emergency dental care.
  • Swelling in your mouth, gums, or tongue: Swelling can be a sign of infection or an allergic reaction, both of which require urgent evaluation by a dentist.
  • A laceration or tear on your lips: Deep cuts or tears on your lips should be treated promptly to prevent complications and promote proper healing.
  • Knocked-out teeth: If a tooth gets knocked out due to an injury or accident, time is of the essence. Seek immediate dental care for the best chance of saving the tooth.

 

Emergency Dentist Q&A

Q: Does a chipped tooth require urgent care?

A: If you chip a tooth, but it doesn’t appear as if you may lose the tooth entirely, it may not be a dental emergency. However, it’s still a good idea to speak to Dr. Dennis or one of his team members, who can advise you on how to care for your tooth until you come into the office.

Q: What should I do if my tooth is knocked out?

A: Anytime you have a knocked-out tooth, you should seek urgent dental care. If you don’t receive prompt emergency dentistry, you may risk losing the tooth for good. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Handle the tooth carefully: Rinse your mouth and the tooth with warm water, avoiding touching the roots. Hold the tooth by the crown (top) as you rinse it.
  2. Try to reposition the tooth: If possible, place the tooth back into the socket in your gum where it used to be. Gently bite down on a clean cloth or gauze to hold it in place until you can visit Abington Center for Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
  3. Preserve the tooth: If you can’t reposition the tooth, place it in a small cup of milk to help preserve it until you arrive at our office.
