So happy I found this place, everyone is always very professional and kind. They are guiding me through some dental work after not visiting a dentist for 15 years while also preventing any further issues. I feel like I'm in good hands.

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: Is a cavity a dental emergency?

A: A cavity that has recently formed is likely not a dental emergency in itself. However, cavities left untreated can progress to infections and abscesses, which could require an emergency root canal to correct if you are experiencing extreme pain. If you believe you have a cavity, make a regular appointment with us so we can correct it as soon as possible.

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.
