The most common dental emergencies

Are you suffering from a severe tooth infection, or did your tooth break in a sudden accident? Are you unsure if the symptoms you’re experiencing need urgent treatment? No matter what the situation, your first move should be to call our dental office to set up an appointment. While you’re on the line, we can give you personalized first-aid tips for taking care of your teeth and gums on your own. It’s important for you to be able to control your pain without making the damage to your mouth more severe. Below are some of the most common dental emergencies.

  • Toothaches
  • Chipped tooth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Lost filling or crown
  • Broken, cracked, or painful denture
  • Loose tooth
  • Gums, lip, or tongue injury
  • Jaw pain or clenching
  • Something stuck between teeth

Understanding the cost of dental emergencies

Do you just need a filling, or will your tooth have to be completely removed and replaced? Different emergencies call for different solutions, and the cost of treatment will vary from case to case. We’ll go over each of your options and make sure you understand the costs beforehand. We will explain how your dental insurance can defray cost and our options for financing.

How to prevent dental emergencies

Good brushing and flossing habits are key if you want to avoid dental emergencies. You shouldn’t neglect your routine checkups and cleanings; these visits could end up saving you from needing additional, more expensive treatments down the road. To lower the risk of breaking a tooth, avoid biting down on hard items like fingernails and pens, and never use your teeth to open packages. Also, if you play sports, wear a mouthguard.

Emergency Dentistry FAQs

When immediate care is needed, we’re here. In the meantime, we want to help you feel as prepared as possible just in case one of these scary situations occurs. For your convenience, we’ve gathered some of the most common questions we get about dental emergencies below so you can learn more about how to handle them. Of course, if you don’t see the information you need, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We are happy to help!

Should I go to the ER or a dentist?

Will my toothache go away on its own?

Do I need to visit a dentist if my chipped tooth doesn’t hurt?

How can I sleep with a toothache?

Should I go to the ER or a dentist?

The following emergencies should be treated at your local emergency room immediately:

  • Broken or dislocated jaw
  • Sustained bleeding (more than 10 minutes)
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing

However, for every other type of dental emergency, it’s best to give us a call first before going to the ER. Emergency rooms typically don’t have the staff or equipment to properly address oral health issues and dental problems. They’ll give you antibiotics or a pain reliever and then instruct you to visit a dentist. Save yourself the time, money, and any delay in treatment by calling SmileRenu.

Will my toothache go away on its own?

Many patients delay getting the treatment they need with the hope that the dental problem will improve on its own. Unfortunately, in the case of toothaches, the issue is more likely to become much worse the longer it goes untreated. Remember, teeth are unable to heal themselves, so if damage or an infection develops, it needs the correct treatment as early as possible. Having your toothache treated earlier rather than later can make all the difference between needing a simple filling and a more extensive treatment such as a root canal or tooth extraction.

Do I need to visit a dentist if my chipped tooth doesn’t hurt?

Chipped teeth are alarming but not usually painful. However, this doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be treated with urgency! Unlike a bruise or cold, a chipped tooth can lead to decay. The compromised enamel can allow bacteria into the softer inner tooth structure, with the risk of decay or a painful infection. Whether your chipped tooth hurts or not, call SmileRenu right away. We will arrange to see you as soon as possible to restore your tooth and your overall dental health.

How can I sleep with a toothache?

Toothaches feel worse at night for several reasons. For one, now that you’re winding down for the day and trying to concentrate on going to sleep, there’s nothing to distract you from your tooth pain. Secondly, when you lay down to go to sleep, the blood pressure in your head and face rises, which inevitably puts more pressure on the gums and mouth. If you’re trying to sleep with dental pain before your appointment with us, try to keep your head elevated. Additionally, taking an over-the-counter pain reliever as directed and applying an ice pack to the outside of your mouth for 10-minute intervals can help you manage the discomfort.
