The Most Common Dental Emergencies

There are two main types of dental emergencies. The first type is pain that develops over time until it becomes unbearable. In other cases, an accident, injury, or other situation arises that seems to come out of nowhere. At Trinity Dental, we can help in both situations! If you have a dental emergency, the first step is to call us right away. Then, while you’re waiting to be seen, you can do the following:

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Every situation and patient is unique. In some cases, a simple prescription for antibiotics and a filling are needed. In others, an extraction may be necessary, followed by a plan for tooth replacement.

If you’re having an emergency, call us right away. Our highly skilled team is gentle and compassionate, and we’ll get you out of pain in record time. We’ll also discuss all of your treatment options to make sure you have a healthy smile for many years to come!

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

When it comes to dental emergencies, the best offense is defense! Regular checkups and good oral hygiene habits at home will go a long way toward preventing many emergencies.

Also, wear a protective mouthguard for any contact sports or recreational activities such as mountain biking. It’s much easier to avoid a knocked-out tooth altogether than to get treatment for it.

Finally, avoid chewing on ice, pens, or hard candies. And if you’re one of the many people who clench and grind at night, ask us about a nightguard to protect your teeth from damage.

Are you still wondering what you would do if you had a dental emergency on your hands? If an accident occurs or you’re experiencing severe pain, time is of the essence. That’s why it’s important to be prepared and know what steps to take. You can also prevent further damage from occurring by acting fast. We want you to be ready for any situation that comes your way, which is why we’ve compiled some common questions we get from patients about dental emergencies for your convenience.

What qualifies as a dental emergency?

The term “dental emergency” is an umbrella phrase for any situation that’s causing you oral pain, or problems that need immediate attention. Most patients are hesitant to schedule an appointment with their dentist right away because they don’t want to make a big deal out of a small problem. Some signs that you are experiencing a dental emergency include:

  • Sudden swelling.
  • Bleeding that won’t stop, even after placing pressure on the area.
  • Severe pain.
  • Discolored gums or teeth.
  • Copper taste in the mouth.
  • A broken restoration.

At Trinity Dental, we’re able to ease your pain and make a stressful situation less so when you call us as soon as possible. We’d be more than happy to walk you through first aid and help you determine whether or not your issue requires emergency care.

Should I visit the ER or emergency dentist first?

Certain injuries require immediate medical attention that our dental office isn’t equipped to handle. Facial traumas like jaw fractures, dislocation, cuts on the face or mouth, or any issues that are impacting your ability to breathe and swallow, all require visits to your local emergency room. After you receive the necessary attention from a medical doctor, you can visit us for any of your dental needs immediately after.
