What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?

If you have ever had an “uh-oh” moment biting down on food or you suffered a fall and knocked out a tooth, you’ve got a reason to seek emergency help. Dental emergencies can happen suddenly, without warning, and their immediate care is critical to save the tooth, stop bleeding, or alleviate serious pain.

Qualifications of a Dental Emergencies:

  • chipped, cracked, or broken tooth
  • knocked out tooth
  • toothache or swollen mouth
  • objects trapped between teeth
  • broken jaw
  • loose or falling out crown
  • broken denture

If you have a serious dental concern or are experiencing a great deal of pain in your mouth, gums, or teeth, seek the help of a Dr. Bloom now. Sometimes problems such as a chipped tooth may seem like a more cosmetic issue that doesn’t need to be taken care of right away, but the sooner the problems are addressed the better your teeth will look and feel, and the sooner you can get back to a normal routine. If you feel you are experiencing a dental emergency, call us immediately.

Dental Emergency Tips

Broken or cracked teeth—Rinse your mouth carefully to keep the area clean. Apply a cold compress like an ice pack to the mouth to reduce swelling if swollen, and go to the dentist right away.

Toothache or swollen mouth—Rinse your mouth with warm water and gently floss to remove any trapped food particles. Monitor the pain and seek dental care if pain is persistent, extreme , or if it is debilitating. You may have a cavity or other potentially serious problem.

Knocked out teeth—Call or have someone call the dentist immediately. Hold the tooth from the crown. Rinse the root of the tooth without removing any tissue fragments. Then gently place the tooth in its socket and hold it there, or place it in cold whole milk (if reinserting the tooth is not an option). It’s important to keep the tooth from drying out and seek care right away. If the gums or mouth are bleeding apply gauze and light pressure. A cold compress can be used to reduce swelling.

Loose or dislodged crown—Don’t wait to have your crown replaced. If your crown is loose, it may be a sign of problems developing beneath the crown. Do not wait more than a few days and call Bloom Family Dental office to schedule an appointment.

Object trapped between teeth—Sometimes gentle flossing, or flossing with a small knot in the line to add support, may remove an object trapped between teeth. But if the problem persists, avoid using any sharp or pointed objects like needs to try to remove the object. These can injure the surrounding teeth or gums and make removal more difficult.

It is important to never apply aspirin or medication directly on your teeth or gum tissues, because this may result in burning the gum and increasing damage. If you have a dental emergency, please contact Dr. Bloom and the team at Bloom Family Dental right away. Our team is standing by and is ready to accept dental emergencies.
