Emergency Dentistry

If you experience a dental emergency, such as toothaches, broken teeth, lost fillings, and other urgent dental issues, it is important to seek urgent dental care as soon as possible. Delaying treatment can lead to further complications and can even result in the loss of a tooth.

Some common dental emergencies that may require urgent care include:

  • Severe toothache: If you experience a severe toothache that does not go away with over-the-counter pain medication, you may have an infection or abscess in your tooth that requires immediate treatment.
  • Broken or knocked-out tooth: If you have a broken or knocked-out tooth, you should try to save the tooth if possible. Rinse it gently with water and place it back in the socket, or place it in a cup of milk or saliva under tongue if it cannot be reinserted.
  • Lost filling or crown: If you have lost a filling or crown, you should try to replace it as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your tooth. If you are unable to replace the filling or crown, you can use a piece of sugar-free gum or wax to cover the area to protect it until you can get to a dentist.
