Experiencing Pain & Sensitivity?

When To See An Emergency Dentist

Depending on the severity of the pain and type of injury you have sustained, it is important to see your dentist as soon as possible. For broken and knocked-out teeth, this can mean the difference between saving or losing your tooth.

 If you are uncertain about the cause of pain in your gums or toothache, it is still important to make an appointment with your dentist. Discomfort in your mouth can be a sign of infection or other underlying dental problems that require treatment.

When speaking to the dentist, be sure to describe your symptoms in as much detail as possible and be honest about the level of pain you are experiencing. This will help them determine the best course of treatment for you.

What To Do In An Emergency

The first step in any dental emergency is to stay calm. This will help you think more clearly and follow the necessary steps to address the problem.

If you have a knocked-out tooth, try to find the tooth and pick it up by the crown (top part of the tooth). If it is dirty, it is possible to rinse the tooth gently with milk or saliva to remove any dirt and debris. Keep it most by submerging it with milk and immediately seek an emergency appointment.

For toothaches, if swelling is present place a cold compress on the outside of the mouth or cheek. For quick dental pain relief, ask your dentist or pharmacist about any over-the-counter pain medication. If the pain persists, see your dentist as soon as possible as you may have a tooth infection.

If a cavity develops underneath a filling or crown, it can become loose and fall out. This exposes the dentin and your tooth will be sensitive to any hot or cold foods. A new filling or crown will be needed as soon as possible to avoid further pain and sensitivity.
