Emergency Dentist Q & A

What is an emergency dentist?

Emergency dentists treat oral injuries and pain that need to be fixed or addressed immediately. Emergency dental situations usually involve saving knocked-out or broken teeth. Coming into Dentistry at Greenway within 30 minutes of your tooth or mouth injury could mean the difference between saving or losing the tooth.

Are you in need of emergency dental care?

Whenever you are concerned about a severe mouth injury or condition for yourself or a member of your family, it’s a good idea to seek immediate emergency dental care. Common dental emergencies often include:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • A loose permanent tooth
  • Extreme mouth or tooth pain
  • Bleeding inside your mouth from your gums, cheeks, or tongue
  • Trauma to your face or mouth
  • Swelling in your gums, tongue, or mouth
  • A severely cracked or broken tooth
  • A cut or tear on your lips

If you chip a tooth, but it doesn’t appear as if you may lose the tooth entirely, it may not be a dental emergency. With that said, don't hesitate to speak with one of Dentistry at Greenway's experienced dentists. They'll explain how to handle your tooth until you can visit the office.

What do I do with a knocked-out tooth?

A knocked-out tooth is no laughing matter. It's one of the most severe dental emergencies. Without immediate dental care, there's a chance you'll lose the tooth. Promptly clean your mouth and the injured tooth, especially if it's fallen out and gotten dirty. Rinse your mouth and tooth with lukewarm water. Avoid touching or holding the tooth's roots.

As you clean the tooth, hold it gently by the top, or crown. Never pick up your tooth from the root. Using light pressure, reposition the cleaned tooth in the empty socket in your gum. Try to gently bite down to keep your tooth in place until you can get to Dentistry at Greenway. Call the office right away. Or, have a family member or friend call to let our staff know you're on your way.

If the tooth cannot go back into the empty socket, hold the tooth in your mouth next to your cheek or keep it in a glass of milk. The moisture will help prevent the roots from drying out. Dentistry at Greenway is here for you. Call for calm, expert assistance in the event of a dental emergency.
