Why Choose White Cosmetic & Family Dentistry for Same-Day Emergency Dentistry?

How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

In almost all dental emergencies, you’ll need to call our office to see our dentists as soon as possible. We also provide guidance on how to manage you or your child’s emergency until you’re able to reach our office. However, if you or a loved one is experiencing heavy oral bleeding or a possible broken jaw, please proceed straight to your nearest emergency room for treatment. Here are a few helpful tips for some of the most common situations we see:

Painful Toothaches

Rinse your mouth and floss thoroughly around the hurting tooth. There may be something stuck that’s causing the discomfort. If you find nothing and the pain is persisting, contact our office right away. Many times, toothaches result from the pulp, or innermost layer of your tooth, being exposed to harmful bacteria. In this case, you may need a root canal.

Chipped/Broken Tooth

Rinse the area with water right away. A cold compress held against the appropriate cheek should reduce any swelling until you reach us. If the damage to your broken tooth is severe, we may have to consider extraction.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If you still have the tooth, rinse it carefully and place it back into its socket. If this isn’t possible, place it in a baggie or cup of milk instead. Once you arrive, Dr. White can determine if reattachment is a viable option.

Knocked Out Temporary Crown

Take a small dab of toothpaste or a tiny piece of dental adhesive and place it over the tooth in question. Then, carefully reattach the crown. This serves as a temporary solution until you reach Dr. White.

Lost Filling/Crown

Unfortunately, most dental work doesn’t last forever. If your filling or crown comes out unexpectedly, call our office right away. You can keep the area clean by rinsing your mouth with warm water. Try to avoid using that area of your teeth for eating until we can restore your dental work.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Preventing all dental emergencies is impossible, but you can avoid many of them by taking certain precautions. When you implement the following into your life, you’ll be less likely to experience painful, stressful dental emergencies:

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

Every dental emergency is unique and requires customized treatment, making it difficult to give a generalized estimate of the cost. Before we begin treatment, we can discuss the costs associated with your options and ways to make treatment more affordable. We accept financing through CareCredit and are in-network for a few insurance providers. To learn more, you can contact our knowledgeable team.
