What You’ll Need for Your Emergency Dentist Appointment
Make you have everything in the list below with you, ready to go before you leave for your emergency dentist appointment:
- • Any documentation or information, in general, given to you at the end of your most recent visit to your regular dentist
- • Insurance information needed for an insurance claim, if you have applicable dental insurance
- • A list detailing your current medications taken on a regular basis and/or any known allergies you may have
Make sure you arrive with at least 15 minutes to spare before your appointment is due to start. You will need this time to fill out important paperwork that goes toward your patient profile, ask any questions, or make any concerns you have known to the emergency dentist and their staff.
The Most Common Dental Emergencies Treated
Unless you’re dealing with a knocked out tooth, or some other dental emergency that makes itself known the second it occurs, the majority of dental emergencies are the painful end result of oral health problems that were ignored or went undetected.
This is why it’s so important for patients to go to their dentists regularly, at least twice per year, to have minor oral health issues identified and treated before they turn into a painful, major problem that will have to be treated by an emergency dentist.
However, nothing is as important as treating sustained head trauma before any other injuries, no matter how badly you’re hurt anywhere else.
Losing an Adult Tooth
Losing one of your permanent, or adult, teeth isn’t exactly supposed to happen. Although, when it does, make sure you haven’t sustained any head trauma that will require treatment. If not, do your best to find the tooth.
Make sure you pick the lost tooth up only by the crown. Try your best to never handle it by the root, especially when you rinse it off. You can attempt to temporarily stick it back in the socket, but don’t force it. You can also put it in a cup of milk or water to preserve it, as well.
Dealing With an Oral Infection
Oral infections are painful, dangerous, and a life-threatening dental emergency. The only way to be rid of one is to see an emergency dentist, more often than not because patients don’t realize they’re dealing with one until they become sick from the infection.
The best way to figure out if you have an oral infection is to check your mouth for small, red bumps. You can also check for oral infections by monitoring any oral pain, whether it’s minor or severe. Oral pain is never natural and always means that something is wrong, whether it’s due to an infection or something else, like a cavity.
Oral infections are time-sensitive and life-threatening. Call us as soon as you possibly can if you have, or suspect you have, an oral infection.
The Loss of a Crown or a Filling
Even though crowns and fillings aren’t made to last a lifetime, you should still spring into action when or if it happens to you. They’re put in place to protect the tooth from additional harm, so it’s now your job to temporarily protect it until you can ge to the appointment we’ve booked for you.
You can use dental cement, pieces of gauze, even some cotton balls. No matter which method you choose to use, make sure you’re consistent.
If you don’t protect the tooth until you can receive treatment, the emergency dentist will have nothing to safely recap or refill. He or she will have no choice but to extract the tooth.
What to Expect from an Emergency Tooth Extraction
It can be pretty scary when you’re told you need to have an emergency tooth extraction, especially if you’re being told at the last second. The only way to really be prepared for one, no matter the circumstance, is to know what you can expect.
The tooth will be removed either as a whole or by being broken up into fragments and removed in pieces. Don’t worry, you’ll only feel some minor pressure when it’s removed and no pain, thanks to the numbing agent that’s injected directly into the extraction site.

Do You Need an Emergency Dentist or an Emergency Room Doctor?
Knowing the difference between needing an emergency dentist or an emergency room doctor can actually be the difference between life and death.
The most important injury that must always be taken care of first is any level or amount of sustained head trauma.
If you’ve taken any damage to the head, but also need an emergency dentist, we can book an appointment for you while you receive treatment from an emergency room doctor.
