Common Dental Emergencies
Try rinsing with warm water to loosen any food particles that may be lodged in the surrounding tissue, then gently floss on either side of the affected tooth. Contact our office to make an appointment if symptoms persist or the area feels warm.
Soft Tissue Cuts
Use a clean washcloth or sterile gauze to apply pressure to the wound until the bleeding stops, then use a cold compress to bring down any swelling. Call your doctor if the bleeding persists.
Knocked Out Baby Tooth
While a knocked-out baby tooth cannot be put back in, we do recommend an appointment so we can rule out any other injuries and determine if a space maintainer is needed. Contact our office to schedule an appointment.
Knocked Out Permanent Tooth
Call our office right away so we can begin preparing for your arrival. Results are best when we see you within an hour of the tooth being knocked out. Find the tooth and hold it by the crown, being careful not to touch the root. Rinse the tooth gently with milk or water, but only if it’s dirty. Carefully insert the tooth back into the socket and bite down on a clean piece of gauze to hold it in place. If you’re not able to do this, place the tooth in a small glass of milk or saliva and bring it with you to your appointment.
Chipped or Broken Tooth
Place the piece of broken tooth in a small cup of milk or saliva; we may be able to bond it back into place. Rinse your mouth with warm water, then apply a cold compress if needed to reduce any swelling. Call our office to schedule an appointment for emergency dental care.

Frequently Asked Questions About Emergency Dentistry
What is a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies are situations in which you are in unbearable pain or need prompt dental care to save a tooth. In these situations, we will make every effort to accommodate you for a same-day appointment.
Can you go to the ER for a dental emergency?
If you've also suffered facial trauma or you’re experiencing uncontrollable bleeding, we urge you to go to your local emergency room for treatment. You can schedule an appointment at our office once your urgent medical concerns have been resolved. For any other dental emergency, you should see a dentist rather than going to the ER, as emergency rooms do not have dentists on staff.
What helps unbearable tooth pain?
Cold compresses, numbing gels, and over-the-counter pain medications can relieve tooth pain temporarily, but the only long-term solution is to get the dental care you need. Unbearable tooth pain is usually a sign of an infection, cracked tooth, or other serious dental issues.
Can an emergency room pull a tooth?
No, emergency rooms do not pull teeth or provide any other forms of dental care. If you have an infection, a hospital may be able to treat your pain, but you will still need to see a dentist to extract your tooth.
