Getting Emergency Dental Care

One way to think about dental emergency care is to consider whether the issue can wait to be addressed during a routinely scheduled appointment or if you need to see Dr. Khanian as soon as possible. There is no definitive “list” for what constitutes a dental emergency.

What Should I do for a Knocked-Out Tooth?

A knocked-out, or avulsed, tooth is among the most common types of dental emergencies for both children and adults. Knowing how to respond can make the difference between saving or losing the tooth. Begin by locating the tooth, taking care to never touch the root portion. If the tooth is dirty, rinse it under a gentle stream of clean water. If possible, place the tooth back into its socket and bite down gently on a piece of gauze or clean cloth to hold it in place. You can also try to hold the tooth in the space between your cheek and gums, where it will remain in contact with your saliva. Another option is to place the tooth in a small container and cover it with room-temperature milk. No matter how you store the tooth, the most important thing is to get in to see Dr. Khanian as swiftly as possible.

How can I Prevent Dental Emergencies?

Many dental emergencies occur as a result of athletic or fitness accidents. Wearing the proper protective gear can greatly reduce your risk of traumatic dental injuries. Mouth guards and helmets offer protection from sudden impacts. Coming in for routine dental exams is another great way to reduce dental emergencies.

These visits give your dental care team a chance to catch signs of decay or tissue abnormalities in the early stages when treatment is often most effective. While there are steps you can take to prevent many types of dental emergencies, no degree of preparation can eliminate the risk that you may need emergency dental treatment at some point.

We will do everything it takes to get you in as quickly as possible for a diagnosis and treatment, whether it’s because of an accident or unexpected tooth discomfort. It usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes to complete an emergency exam.

Dental Emergency

Chipped teeth: Depending on how severe they are and where they are, you may need a filling.

​Temperature sensitivity: This could be a sign that the nerve is irritated. If necessary, our medical staff can evaluate the delicate area and treat it, or they can suggest that you see an endodontist.

Antibiotics: Antibiotics may be recommended to prevent infection in the tooth, but this will depend on the specifics of your case.

Having a trusted team to turn to is a great way to preserve your dental health in the event of a dental emergency. Call All Smiles Family Dentistry as soon as possible to schedule a visit, and know that online booking is also an option for future scheduling needs.
