What is an Dental Emergency?
You may be having a dental emergency if:
- You have intense pain when chewing, drinking or speaking
- You have lost a filling, cap, or crown and are experiencing pain
- You or your child have been in an accident, and teeth are damaged
- Your child has fallen and hit his or her mouth and the bleeding won’t stop
- You are experiencing abnormal pain when flossing or brushing your teeth
- If a food particle has become stuck in between your tooth and gum and the area is now swollen, or there is drainage around a tooth (a sign of infection)

Common Dental Emergencies
A dental emergency frequently involves trauma, which could cause teeth or gums to be visibly hurt. In such circumstances, a cold compress should be given and the mouth should be washed with cold water.
Put direct pressure on a bit tongue or lip, then phone our office. If a tooth is chipped, try to find the piece and call our office to let us know you're coming. Don't worry if you can't find the fragment.
In order to prevent drying out, any knocked-out teeth should be gathered and either placed in the socket and retained there with clean gauze, or placed in a small cup of chilled milk, saline solution, or ice water. To let us know you are coming, call our office.
Try to remain calm and call our clinic right away for kids who have mouth or tooth injuries. For permanent teeth, follow the instructions above. If a baby tooth is knocked out, don't worry; the permanent tooth will be examined to make sure there is no harm and will erupt when it is time to do so.
