No Insurance, No Problem!
A dental emergency can happen to anybody at any time. You can best prepare for one of these situations by keeping your dentist’s phone number in your contacts list or written on an easy-to-find location. Seeking prompt emergency dental care may help to save a damaged or injured tooth and may prevent any complications that could occur from an infection or an injury.
Identifying a Dental Emergency
Understanding the difference between a true dental emergency and a problem that can wait until the dentist’s office resumes usual office hours is important. A severe toothache should be attended to as soon as possible. If you have chipped or broken a tooth, this is also an emergency that should be handled on the same day. A knocked-out tooth and severe swelling in your mouth are other examples of emergencies requiring an immediate response.
What to Do Until the Dentist Sees You
For a toothache, rinse your mouth with salt water and apply a cold compress. Save any pieces of broken or knocked-out teeth. For a soft tissue injury to your tongue, palate or gums, use clean gauze, and apply direct pressure to the area for 15 minutes. Call the emergency dentist and ask to be seen as soon as possible. Getting treated within an hour of a severe tooth injury boosts the chances of saving the tooth.
Seeking Emergency Treatment
A knocked-out tooth may be saved if it is attended to within an hour. In the case of swelling, emergency treatment might include antibiotics to get rid of the infection along with pain relievers to reduce your pain. A chipped, loose or broken tooth may need an emergency root canal or other treatment.

What Does Emergency Dentistry Involve?
Dental emergencies can include a wide variety of dental issues for which immediate dental treatment is required. Although they do not always have to cause acute pain, a dental emergency typically involves some sort of discomfort for which a patient must be seen by a dental provider right away. The diagnosis and treatment of dental emergencies is highly individualized, and there is no rule on what constitutes a dental emergency. These are some of the more common dental emergencies that we address.
If your tooth is broken or fractured, you should contact a dentist immediately for treatment. This could also include a fracture in the surrounding bone. It is possible for the root of the tooth to be lost along with the tooth in the event of trauma. This is a very serious situation that requires the immediate attention of a dentist.
If you have an implant or treated tooth that falls out, this is also cause for immediate concern. You may want to get this corrected as soon as possible for aesthetic reasons. Even though this may involve artificial material falling out, this emergency should be considered as severe as losing a natural tooth. While you may not experience extreme pain from the loss of a dental implant in some cases, it is still important to address this problem right away to protect your existing tooth and bone. Delay in treatment could result in intense pain late
