Tips for Dealing with Common Dental Emergency Issues

Knowing what to do in a serious or time-sensitive situation can instantly improve your odds of feeling more comfortable and save vital oral structures. Following are some tips for dealing with common situations.

Normally, a toothache means that there is an issue with the inside of a tooth. A toothache means that the nerve endings of a tooth are involved. Until you can see us, you can take over the counter pain relief medication to alleviate discomfort. Cold compresses on the side of the face can also help with swelling and pain.

If a tooth has been knocked out or chipped, it is important to act fast. First, put the piece(s) of a tooth in milk or Save-A-Tooth solution (available at most pharmacies and big grocery stores). This will help keep the pieces or piece of your tooth alive. In the meantime, control bleeding with a piece of sterile gauze and call our office immediately.

We hope that you never have to endure a dental emergency, but if you do, our team is here to help you get back on track.

Emergency Dental Care FAQs

What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is a situation that requires immediate or same-day treatment from an oral healthcare provider. Common emergency situations include broken or knocked out teeth, toothaches, facial trauma, and damage to soft oral tissue. If you think you have a dental emergency, call Plantation Palms Dental as soon as you can so that we can accommodate you. Our mission is to alleviate your discomfort and restore oral function after treatment.

Do you need emergency dental care?

If you have injured a tooth, your lips, or gums, you might need emergency dental care. If your injuries are so severe that you are bleeding profusely or have injured another part of your body, go to your nearest hospital for treatment. Those who have sustained facial trauma such as a knocked out tooth or have developed a severe toothache, should call our office as soon as possible. Those who need same-day treatment will be asked to visit our office the day of their call.

What if I break a tooth?

Breaking a tooth is an incredibly stressful (not to mention a sometimes painful) situation. If you have broken your tooth, put any pieces of your tooth in milk or Save-A-Tooth solution (available at most large pharmacies). Placing broken or knocked out teeth into milk or Save-A-Tooth solution will help keep its structures alive until treatment. If you have a broken or dislodged tooth, it is important to contact our office and seek treatment as soon as possible.

Types of dental emergencies

There are a few reasons why a patient might need emergency treatment. The most common reasons for emergency dental visits include broken and knocked out teeth, loose or broken restorations, and infected teeth. Severe instances of trauma to the face or mouth might require hospital attention and ultimately, the expertise of an oral surgeon. If you are seriously hurt or have injured multiple parts of your body in an accident of some kind, visit your nearest emergency room for treatment. Plantation Palms Dental provides emergency and same-day dental care for those with broken or knocked out teeth or toothaches. Call us today to reserve an appointment.
