There are common signs or symptoms that may indicate you have a dental emergency. Dental emergencies require immediate medical attention, and should always be treated as soon as possible to avoid complications. If you think you are experiencing a dental emergency, we encourage you to contact Floor Dental Group as soon as possible.

Common Dental Emergencies

 

Severe Toothache

 

If you have tooth pain, sensitivity, or swelling in or around a tooth, this could indicate decay or an infection. Toothaches are caused by cavities or an infection in the pulp area of the tooth. While you wait to be seen a cold compress can be applied to the area to help ease pain and swelling.

 

Broken, Chipped, or Cracked Tooth

 

Chips and cracks to teeth in the front and back of the mouth can happen from biting down too hard on an object. Accidents can also cause this type of injury and should be treated right away. If you have a broken, cracked, or chipped tooth we encourage you to contact our office. Tooth fragments should be saved and brought in with you to your appointment. A cold compress can be placed on the area to help reduce swelling and ease any pain.

 

Facial Trauma

 

If you have suffered an injury that has caused trauma to the soft tissue of your mouth, lips, or gums you should contact our office. Our team can examine how severe the trauma is and determine if treatment is needed. If you experience any bleeding, you can apply pressure to help slow or stop the bleeding while you wait to be seen in our office.

 

Loose or Knocked Out Tooth

 

If you notice a tooth is loose or have suffered an injury to cause a tooth to be knocked out of your mouth, this requires immediate care. Loose teeth should be left in place until you are seen by our doctors. If your tooth is missing, try and find the missing tooth and bring the tooth in with you to your appointment. Our priority is always to save your natural tooth. If saving the tooth is not possible, we will discuss tooth replacement options.

 

Abscess

 

An abscess is an infection and can occur near the root of a tooth or between the teeth and gums. Any infection should be treated right away to prevent the infection from spreading to other areas. If you experience painful gums that are raised or swollen, this could indicate that you have an abscess. While you wait for treatment you can rinse with warm water and apply a cold compress to ease pain and swelling.

 

Broken or Loose Dental Restoration

 

Restorations can last for years and are durable, but in some cases, they can become loose or even fall out. If this happens you should be seen right away. Patients should try and find the missing restoration and bring it with them to their appointment. Avoid chewing food on the tooth and call our office right away to have your restoration repaired.

 

Excessive Bleeding

 

If you have recently had a tooth extraction or dental surgery, some bleeding is normal. Bleeding that is persistent or from trauma can be serious and should be addressed right away. To help slow down bleeding, gauze can be placed over the area and pressure should be applied. Avoid eating and drinking until you are seen in our office.
