Emergency Dental Care FAQ
What can an emergency dentist treat?
Emergency dentists are able to treat things that are more complex, due to the need for urgent care. Common things an emergency dentist can treat are dislodged teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, and fractured jaws. We can treat pain, damaged teeth, and infection.
What if I have a toothache?
Dental pain can be very annoying, to the point of keeping you up at night. This type of severe and constant pain can be the indicator of a dental infection. If your tooth is infected, it’s important to understand that you need to seek treatment right away because an infection won’t heal on its own.
What should I do if my tooth gets knocked out?
Getting a tooth knocked can be scary, but don’t panic. It’s important that you act quickly in order for your dentist to have the best chance of saving it. You will need to transport it carefully to our dentistry office. During transport, placing it back into its socket is best if possible. If not, milk or water can be used to keep the cells moist and alive while you get to our office.
What are my options for relief when it comes to a Toothache?
If you have severe throbbing, you can brush and floss your teeth to remove any food fragments that are on your teeth. Aspirin will work well for the immediate pain, but you definitely do not want to put it directly against the gums where the aching tooth is. If the pain persists for more than a few days, call All Care Dentistry immediately, it may need an extraction.
