Emergency Dental Care Q & A

What is emergency dental care?

The team at Almaden Dental Associates provides emergency dental care in order to treat any condition in your mouth requiring immediate attention.

Their dedicated professionals are particularly experienced in working with urgent dental care situations and have the skills and fortitude to fix your smile quickly to ensure that it stays healthy and beautiful.

Do I need emergency dental care?

A dental emergency can come in many forms. Whether it’s the result of a car crash, a sports injury, or just biting down on something awkwardly, a dental emergency could involve any of the structures or tissues in your mouth, including your teeth, gums, cheeks, tongue, and lips.

Some examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Severe pain in your tooth or mouth
  • A significantly broken or cracked tooth
  • Swelling in your gums, tongue, or mouth
  • A permanent tooth that’s come loose
  • Bleeding from your gums, tongue, or the insides of your cheeks
  • Physical trauma to the face or mouth
  • A cut or tear on your lips

Not all of these situations will always require emergency care, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you suspect that you’re dealing with a dental emergency, call the offices of Almaden Dental Associates immediately and consult with a professional. The dental experts will be able to tell you if you need to be seen immediately.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

If you’re suffering from a dental emergency, call Almaden Dental Associates or get to the office as soon as possible. Receiving treatment within 30 minutes of your injury might make the difference in saving your tooth.

If you’ve knocked your tooth completely out of its socket, try to locate it. Only hold it by its crown — the top part that would be visible in your mouth. Never touch your tooth by its roots.

You should rinse off the tooth and your mouth with warm water. If possible, try to reinsert the tooth into its socket and gently bite down to hold it in place.

If you can’t get the tooth back into its socket, you can keep it in the side of your mouth or put it in a glass of milk. This will make sure that its roots don’t dry out.
