Our Emergency Dental Services
Access the emergency dental services you need when you need them:
Facial Pain and Swelling
When bacteria enters your gum’s soft tissues, the resulting facial pain and swelling could indicate an infection or dental abscess. Your dentist will find the source of the issue and, depending on the severity, might prescribe pain medication or antibiotics.
Chipped, Fractured or Cracked Teeth
Chipped, fractured or cracked teeth are a common problem that can lead to tooth pain or tooth loss if left untreated. Our dentists seek to treat these issues with solutions including dental fillings and dental crowns.
A dislodged filling is when a tooth’s filling moves from its original position, sometimes due to stress, pressure or grinding habits. For small displacements, your dentist might replace the filling without issue. If left untreated, they may need to remove new decay around the area and replace it with a new filling.
Mouth trauma can result from various injuries, including cuts and lacerations. To begin treatment, your dentist examines the site for bone and tooth damage. If necessary, they might place stitches to help the wound heal and prescribe antibiotics and painkillers.
What Can You Do Before Going to an Emergency Dental Clinic?
Prevent further damage and improve outcomes by taking immediate steps. Before coming to the clinic, call Dental Choice for instructions, or follow the tips below:
Swishing your mouth with warm water and flossing can dislodge debris contributing to discomfort. Additionally, a cold compress pressed on your cheek can relieve the pain and swelling associated with a toothache.
Broken or Dislodged Filling
Don’t eat or chew on the tooth if you’ve noticed a broken crown or dislodged filling. Bring the broken parts to the clinic, where we’ll assess the situation and discuss your options.
If you have a knocked-out tooth, lift it by the crown without touching the root. Rinse the tooth with cold water and place it in a small milk container. Try to see a dentist within the hour.
Broken or Chipped Tooth
If you break or chip a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water, use gauze to stop bleeding and bring the broken tooth pieces to your appointment. You can use a cold compress outside your cheek while waiting to see a professional.
Soft Tissue Injury
First, rinse the wound with saltwater for 30 seconds. Then apply pressure to the wound with moist gauze for 15 minutes. Finally, use a cold compress to reduce swelling and pain. For unrelenting and severe bleeding, please visit the emergency room.
