Emergency Dental Care

Emergency Dental Care

It is important to remember that dental emergencies could occur at any time, can happen to any of us, and are very stressful for parents and their children. The sooner that dental treatment is sought, the better.

If the Tooth is Missing

If it happens to be one of your permanent teeth, the dentist will attempt to re-implant it. It’s more successful if it can be repaired within one hour after the tooth has been knocked out.

  • Do your best to find the tooth. Don’t touch the tooth’s roots. Only touch the crown of the tooth.
  • Rinse off the debris and dirt with water but do not scrub or scrape your tooth.
  • If your tooth is a permanent tooth, try to put the tooth back in its socket it fell out of using gentle pressure.
  • Or, if it is a primary tooth, you can submerge it in a glass of milk in the case of a small child, so they will not swallow it. The dentist may not re-implant the tooth if the procedure could damage the tooth bud of the permanent tooth that has yet to make its appearance.
  • Whatever you do, do not allow the tooth to dry out during your trip to the dentist. Keeping the tooth wet is most critical for the reimplantation to be a success.

Timing is of the essence to save your tooth. Be sure and call as soon as possible to tell us you are on your way.

If It Is a Crown Fracture

Root Fracture

If you suffer a root fracture, it is usually caused by some direct trauma to the root of the tooth and may not be noticeable to your naked eye. If you suspect your tooth has a root fracture, the dentist will need to take a digital dental x-ray. If there is a fracture and depending on the level or degree of fracture the tooth can be treated, monitored, or in the worst-case scenario it may have to be extracted.

One of the main situations seen in an emergency dental clinic is the ‘knocked-out’ tooth. Your first step, of course, is to save your tooth.
