Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

What should I do in a dental emergency before reaching the dentist?

In a dental emergency, immediate steps can make a significant difference. For a knocked-out tooth, try to place it back in the socket, or keep it moist in milk. If you have a severe toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to your face. Avoid applying painkillers directly to the gums, as they can burn the tissue. Contact us as soon as possible for further guidance and to arrange an urgent appointment.

Can a chipped tooth be considered a dental emergency?

Yes, a chipped or fractured tooth is often treated as a dental emergency, especially if there's pain or sharp edges that can harm your mouth. It’s important to seek immediate dental care to prevent further damage and to determine if the tooth’s nerve is at risk.

Are dental abscesses treated as emergencies?

Absolutely. Dental abscesses can lead to serious infections if not treated promptly. If you suspect an abscess (noted by a painful, pimple-like swelling on your gums), contact us immediately. Timely treatment is essential to prevent the spread of infection.

How can I prevent dental emergencies?

While not all dental emergencies can be prevented, maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups can significantly reduce the risk. Protect your teeth during sports by using mouthguards, avoid chewing hard foods that can crack teeth, and never use your teeth to cut or open things. These preventive measures can help keep your teeth strong and reduce the likelihood of sudden dental issues.
