What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry provides same-day care for potentially serious oral health problems. If you develop a deep cavity or lose a tooth due to oral trauma, it’s important to visit All Smiles Dentistry right away. The sooner you make it to the office, the sooner the team can reduce your pain and prevent additional complications.

What conditions can benefit from emergency dentistry?

The team at All Smiles Dentistry offers emergency care for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Fractured and chipped teeth
  • Damaged or lost dental restorations
  • Bleeding that won’t stop
  • Oral abscesses
  • Foreign objects lodged between teeth
  • Toothaches
  • Jaw pain

You might also benefit from emergency dentistry if you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment and damage or lose your aligners.

How can I protect the health of my teeth and gums?

If you want to protect the health of your teeth and gums, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene. The team at All Smiles Dentistry recommends brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing before going to bed, and visiting All Smiles Dentistry every six months for a professional dental cleaning.

To reduce the risk of oral trauma, the team recommends wearing a mouthguard when playing sports and wearing a nightguard if you grind your teeth. Taking the time to implement these simple practices can preserve your smile.

If a permanent tooth falls out, what should I do?

If one of your permanent teeth falls out, carefully pick it up and rinse it in tap water. Try to put the tooth back in the socket, but if it moves around, tuck it inside your cheek or place it in a glass of milk. 

Once the tooth is secure, call the team at All Smiles Dentistry. The administrative staff can make recommendations to limit the pain and prevent swelling on your way to the office. The team will do whatever they can to save your permanent tooth, but sometimes restorations are necessary.

What should I bring to an emergency dental appointment?

If you’re a new patient at All Smiles Dentistry, bring a photo ID and health insurance card to your first appointment. If your mouth is bleeding or you’re experiencing pain, the team recommends using clean gauze or applying a pack of ice to your cheek.

To receive emergency dentistry, make an appointment at All Smiles Dentistry by calling the office today or scheduling online.
