When should I seek emergency dental care near me?
Broken Teeth and Tooth Fractures
It’s important to obtain treatment for broken or fractured teeth promptly to reduce the risk of infection and additional damage. If sharp tooth edges are causing soft tissue injury, use dental wax to protect your mouth, and call us to schedule treatment.
If your tooth is knocked out, our emergency dentists may be able to reimplant it. Rinse your tooth with warm water while holding it by the crown. Place it into your tooth socket or store it in the side of your mouth and call us for emergency instructions immediately.
Severe Toothache or Pressure
A severe toothache may be caused by decay, injury or infection. Contact us immediately if your tooth pain occurs with pressure, fever, ear pain or other symptoms.
New or increasing tooth sensitivity may require urgent dental care to rule out infection, a tooth fracture or other problems. If your teeth hurt when exposed to cold, heat or sweet foods, schedule an emergency evaluation.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
Tooth decay is a gradual process that can result in large and painful cavities. Our emergency dentists will evaluate your teeth and determine if fillings or other treatments are needed to relieve pain permanently.
A tooth abscess is a painful infection that often occurs around damaged or diseased teeth or gums. Symptoms include severe and constant tooth pain, pressure, fever, foul-smelling drainage, swollen glands in your neck and significant facial swelling. If you think that you may have a dental abscess, call our emergency dental office immediately. Delaying treatment can lead to serious medical complications.
Lost or Loosened Fillings
If your filling falls out or becomes unstable or loose, you may experience pain or sensitivity in the affected tooth. Contact us to obtain replacement fillings as soon as possible.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
Broken crowns and missing restorations aren’t just an annoyance. Your treated teeth are weak and vulnerable without them. Our emergency dentists can provide either temporary or permanent restorations to keep your smile and dental health on the right track.
Tooth Grinding and Enamel Damage
If you grind your teeth while you sleep, your tooth enamel can easily become damaged by the friction and pressure. Contact us for an emergency evaluation if you notice an increase in symptoms or detect new damage to your teeth. Our dentists can strengthen your enamel and offer devices to help curb your teeth grinding activity.
