Everything You’ll Need for Your Emergency Dentist Appointment
Before you leave for your appointment, you’ll need to make sure that you have the following with you, ready to go:
- Insurance information needed to process and file an insurance claim, if you have dental insurance and plan on filing a claim
- Any recent paperwork or documentation given to you to take home during a previous visit to your regular dentist
- A full list of known allergies and/or current medications you’re taking on a regular basis
Make sure you give yourself an extra 15 minutes to fill out paperwork when you arrive and, if applicable, to let the emergency dentist and their staff know about any questions or fears you have over going to the dentist.
The Most Common Dental Emergencies Treated by Emergency Dentists
Most dental injuries are caused by underlying dental health problems that went untreated for any length of time, which is why it’s so important to see your dentist twice a year. However, other dental emergencies make themselves known basically as soon as they happen.
No matter what you’re facing, you need to make sure that you put any sustained head trauma first.
Lost and/or Knocked Out Teeth
Losing a tooth can be extremely stressful, but you can save it if you work fast and do things the right way. Although, you need to make sure any sustained head trauma is dealt with before you look for the lost tooth.
If you were able to find it, make sure you don’t pick it up by the root. Doing so can cause irreversible damage that will make it impossible for the emergency dentist to successfully plant it back in. Make sure you rinse it with some water.
You can try to put the tooth back in yourself, but you can also store it in a cup of milk or water if you’re unable to do so for whatever reason.
Oral Infections and Abscessed Teeth
Oral infections are a lot more dangerous than patients realize. They have the potential to become fatal, just like any other type of infection does.
The best way to figure out if you have an oral infection is by looking for a red bump, or anything that generally looks like acne, in your mouth. Pain is also a good indication of an oral infection, which is why you should never ignore oral pain, whatsoever.
If you suspect you have an oral infection, call us immediately.
Losing a Filling or a Crown
Losing a filling or a crown can happen anytime… even on a weekend, and you need to act fast in order to reduce the chance of further damage. You’ll need to get something to plug up the hole until you can get to the appointment we’ve booked for you.
Dental cement, pieces of gauze, cotton balls, whatever you can get your hands on that will work. Just make sure that you stay consistent and keep the hole covered up.
If you don’t, you could face losing the entire tooth due to irreversible damage.
Emergency Tooth Extractions
Facing the possibility of going for an emergency tooth extraction is more than enough to keep a patient away, but the best way to prepare for the procedure, is to know what’s going to happen before, during, and after.
Thanks to the numbing agent used in the extraction area, you won’t feel any pain throughout the procedure, just a little bit of pressure.
Once it’s had a chance to set in, the emergency dentist will remove the tooth using a rocking motion and a pair of special dental pliers. If the tooth is unable to be removed whole, it will be broken up into smaller pieces and removed that way.
After it’s out and you’ve had a second to relax, the emergency dentist or someone from their staff will take the time to go over aftercare instructions. You must follow these at home to ensure the extraction site is kept free from infection.

Emergency Room Doctor or Emergency Dentist?
Knowing where you need to go first is extremely important when a trip to the emergency room and a trip to the emergency dentist are both needed.
Remember, sustained head trauma always comes first on the treatment list, no matter how bad your oral health is at the time.
While you receive treatment for your head trauma from an emergency room doctor, give us a call so we can have an appointment booked for you with an emergency dentist as soon as possible.
