Emergency Dentist Q & A

What constitutes a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is sudden and severe tooth trauma or pain that requires immediate treatment. Common dental emergencies include:

  • Broken, chipped, or cracked tooth
  • Tooth or jaw pain
  • Abscess
  • Bleeding tooth
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Broken filling

Emergency dentists at any of Dental Made Easy’s three locations evaluate your condition, relieve your pain, and resolve your problem.

What should I do if I’ve knocked out a tooth?

If you’ve lost a tooth, there’s a risk that the tooth won’t survive unless you get medical care as quickly as possible. To improve your chances of saving the tooth, act quickly and follow these steps:

  • Rinse the tooth in milk or saline solution (do not use tap water)
  • Lightly press the tooth back into the socket
  • Bite down on a piece of gauze to hold the tooth in place

If you can't keep the tooth in its socket until you get to Dental Made Easy, drop it in a small container of milk to keep it moist and preserve the roots (do not use tap water). If milk is not available, hold the tooth under your tongue or in your cheek until you arrive at the Dental Made Easy office.

Getting help within an hour is imperative. A tooth may be successfully reimplanted if you receive treatment quickly.

What is included in emergency dental care services?
