Everything You’ll Need for the Emergency AppointmentBefore you leave your home for the emergency dentist appointment we’ve booked for you, make sure you have the following with you: A thorough, detailed list of all medications and known allergies Insurance information needed for a dental insurance claim Any paperwork or documentation given to you after a recent dental appointment In order to make sure you don’t have to rush when you arrive, give yourself an extra 15 minutes. You’ll no doubt need this time to ask any questions you may have, fill out paperwork, and let the emergency dentist or their staff know if you’re feeling nervous or fearful.
Common Dental Emergencies Treated by Emergency DentistsDental emergencies are either the result of underlying oral health problems or an accident that caused it. Whatever the case may be, any sustained head trauma must be assessed and treated before anything else.
The Loss of an Adult ToothThe first thing you must do after the loss of an adult tooth is to make sure any sustained head trauma is identified and treated. Once that’s taken care of, or no sustained head trauma could be found, try to find the tooth. Making sure to not handle the root when you pick it up and rinse it off, you can then try to temporarily put it back into the socket yourself. If you’re not comfortable with doing so, or you can’t put it back in, you can also fill up a cup with milk or water and store the lost tooth in it. Remember to try and not handle the root of the tooth as much as possible. If you handle it by the root too much, you could damage the tooth to the point of no return, making it impossible to implant it back into the empty socket.

Oral Infections – Abscessed TeethOral infections, such as an abscessed tooth, for example, are an absolute nightmare of a dental emergency. Not only are they extremely painful, they’re a time-sensitive turned life-threatening dental emergency, so you need to act quickly when you have one. Monitor any amount of oral pain you may be experiencing and take a thorough look around your mouth for small, red bumps. If you’re in oral pain, find a small, red bump in your mouth, or are even dealing with both, chances are you have an oral infection. If you have an oral infection or suspect one is brewing, you need to call us straight away. You’re putting your life at risk if you ignore an oral infection for too long.
The Loss of a Filling or CrownEven though fillings and crowns tend to break and/or fall out as they age or through damage, you still need to take action as soon as one or the other falls out. They are put in place in order to protect a damaged tooth from further harm, which is why you need to find dental cement, pieces of gauze, even some cotton balls. Whichever method you’re able to use, you need to stay consistent and keep the covered. If you don’t, and the tooth takes further damage, you may have to have an emergency tooth extraction instead of a recap or a refill.
How to Face an Emergency Tooth ExtractionThe best way to face an emergency tooth extraction is to know how the procedure works and what you can expect. It’s never easy being told you need to have an emergency tooth extraction, especially if the emergency dentist calls for one at the last second. A numbing agent is used to ensure you won’t feel any pain, just some minor pressure. Once its had a chance to kick in and become effective, the emergency dentist will then use a pair of dental pliers to either remove the tooth whole or in pieces by breaking it up into smaller fragments. Once the tooth has been extracted using either method to remove it, you will then go over aftercare instructions. In order to avoid the extraction site becoming infected, you need to make sure that all their instructions are followed to the absolute letter.
