Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry at Comprehensive Dental Group includes same-day dental evaluations, diagnoses, and treatments for oral health problems that require immediate attention. The practice’s expert providers are here for you and your family the same day you experience a dental emergency.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

  • Hot or cold sensitivity
  • Pus in your gumline
  • Soft tissue (gum) damage
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Restoration for a lost or missing tooth 
  • Knocked-out permanent teeth
  • Loose permanent teeth

If you’re not sure whether your situation constitutes a dental emergency, call the Comprehensive Dental Group office, and friendly staff members will happily assist you. 

What should I do during a dental emergency?

During a dental emergency, it’s important to stay calm and know what to do:

Knocked-out tooth

If you or a loved one has a knocked-out tooth, pick it up by the chewing surface, not by the tooth’s roots. Rinse the tooth with water and put it back in its socket if possible. You can also place the tooth between your gums and cheek, in saliva, or in some milk to keep it moist. 

Bring the tooth with you to the Comprehensive Dental Group office during your same-day appointment.

Soft tissue damage

In the case of gum, lip, tongue, or mouth damage, apply pressure to any bleeding and ice to the affected area until you can get to the office.

Toothache

If you have a toothache or swelling, place a cold compress on the affected area to reduce pain and swelling. 

Broken tooth

In the case of a broken tooth, save the broken-off piece of tooth and bring it with you to Comprehensive Dental Group. Keep the tooth fragment moist if you can. 

Damaged tooth restoration

If you have a crown, filling, inlay, onlay, or other type of tooth restoration that falls out of your mouth, bring it with you to an emergency dentistry visit to Comprehensive Dental Group. 

What should I expect when receiving emergency dentistry care?

Your Comprehensive Dental Group provider’s first priority during emergency dentistry is to reduce discomfort using an anesthetic or pain reliever if needed. They ask about your symptoms, review your oral health history, and examine your teeth and gums. You might also need dental X-rays.

Your dentist personalizes each emergency dentistry treatment based on your unique needs and desired outcome. To restore affected teeth, they offer fillings, sutures, crowns, bridges, dental implants, dentures, root canals, and other dental procedures. 

Comprehensive Dental Group specialists also offer tooth extractions for teeth that can’t be saved. They have your best interest at heart and save affected teeth whenever possible.
