Emergency Dentistry Q & A

When should I go to the emergency dentist?

Some mouth injuries require immediate care, while others can wait until normal office hours, so it’s important to be able to recognize the difference. Tooth injuries can be caused by any number of things, from sports injuries or falls to biting a piece of food that’s too hard.

If you’ve suffered a severe crack or chip or your tooth has been knocked out, seek medical attention immediately. Pain that doesn’t go away or bleeding that doesn’t stop are signs that you need quick medical attention.

At Alluna Dental, the emergency dental department is equipped to handle many common mouth injuries. Cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth can all be treated by the Alluna Dental emergency dental team. If you think you’re experiencing a dental emergency, call the office and the team will help you get treatment quickly.

Should I go to the emergency dentist for a toothache?

Toothaches can be caused by abscesses or serious infections in your mouth. If left untreated for too long, these conditions can become life-threatening. Your toothache may be a dental emergency if you have:

  • Severe pain
  • An abscess
  • Facial swelling
  • Bumps on your gums
  • A fever

When you come to Alluna Dental for a dental emergency, the team assesses your toothache and provide treatment that can include pain relievers, tooth extraction or other care.

What should I do if a tooth is knocked out?

If a tooth is knocked out, first try to find it. Once you locate the lost tooth, try to handle it as little as possible. Rinse it in cool water to remove any visible dirt, but don’t scrub it or use soap. Try to put the tooth back in the socket and hold it in place with gauze.

If you can’t keep the tooth in the socket, place it in a glass of saliva or milk. Bring the tooth with you to the office. Sometimes, teeth that are knocked out can be saved. If the socket is bleeding, you can use a cold tea bag or gauze to help it stop bleeding.

At Alluna Dental, the goal is to keep your teeth and mouth healthy. If you experience a dental emergency like a lost tooth, toothache, or damaged tooth, the Alluna Dental emergency team is just a phone call away.
