Common Dental Emergencies
Sometimes a toothache, while bothersome, can be managed for a few days until you can get in to see the dentist, but other times the situation requires immediate attention.
Common dental emergencies may include:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Teeth knocked out or seriously damaged
- Items stuck in or between teeth
- Sore, bleeding gums
- Complications with root canals, crowns, fillings, or dental work
- Throbbing toothaches that do not get better with basic home care
- Broken jaws
If you are experiencing an emergency, there are some steps you can take that may be able to help you until you are able to see a dentist and may help the dentist treat you more effectively. For broken teeth, clean the area with warm water and use ice or cold compresses to help reduce swelling. If possible, save the cracked piece in a wet towel and bring it with you to the dentist. In the case of knocked-out teeth, try to save the tooth by keeping it wet and call your dentist right away. Major toothaches can often be remedied with oral pain medication, but a dentist should be consulted as soon as possible.
While our Bethpage dentist office can help with a variety of emergencies, some emergencies require urgent care from a paramedic or hospital. In the case of major blood loss, broken bones, or severe trauma to the face or head, call 911 or go straight to the hospital.
