What is a dental Emergency?
A dental emergency includes any trauma to the mouth that may cause bleeding gums, and dislodge or fracture teeth. Such emergencies can include extreme oral pain (teeth or gums), abscesses, infection, tooth sensitivity or a traumatic injury. A dental emergency may require immediate medical attention.
If you are unsure if you have a dental emergency, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you bleeding from the mouth?
- Are you in severe pain?
- Do you have any loose teeth?
- Do you have any swelling in the mouth or facial area?
- Do you have any bulges, swelling or knots on your gums?
If you said yes to any of these questions, please contact us immediately at 763-205-0526.
Types of Dental Emergencies
Such emergencies can include extreme oral pain (teeth or gums), abscesses, infection, tooth sensitivity or a traumatic injury.
You can't plan for every emergency. If you have experienced trauma to your mouth including dislodged teeth, fractured teeth, or bleeding, contact us for emergency dental care.
Tooth pain can indicate an underlying more serious problem. If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity to hot and cold for a prolonged period of time, then you will need emergency dental care. Root canals and other emergency dental work can alleviate your pain and save your tooth.
What to do in a Dental Emergency
When experiencing a dental emergency, it's important to receive a quick exam and treatment from your dentist. After contacting us for your emergency dental appointment, you should follow these guidelines:
- If a tooth is fractured or dislodged, collect your tooth and rinse off.
- Rinse out your mouth. Be sure to not scrub tooth or gums in this area.
- Put tooth in a small container and bring with you to your appointment.
- Take aceteminiphin or ibuprofen for pain relief.
What Not to Do in a Dental Emergency
Whether you've experienced an accident or tooth damage due to eating a piece of food that’s too hard, dental emergencies can include cracked, broken, or dislodged teeth. It is important to see a dentist for sudden tooth pain and mouth trauma because if left untreated, a dental emergency can lead to serious complications.
If you or someone in your family is experiencing an urgent dental care need, simply call our office and we will instruct you on your next steps to receive the proper care.
