What Is a Dental Emergency?

At our office, our rule of thumb is that if you think your condition is a dental emergency, it probably is. Any issue that is causing you serious pain, discomfort, or bleeding should be treated right away.

The most obvious dental emergencies are oral injuries. If your tooth is cracked, chipped, loose, knocked out of its socket, or driven back into the gum line, this is a serious issue. Lacerations to your gums, lips, tongue, and cheeks should also be treated by an emergency dentist. However, other common issues like a missing or loose filling or dental crown are also considered emergencies. This is because damage to your dental work can expose your vulnerable enamel and lead to further complications. 

A serious toothache is also a dental emergency, as it may indicate damage to your tooth or even an infection. When in doubt, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Loveland Lakes Family Dentistry. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

What Should I Do If My Tooth Is Knocked Out?

- First, you should recover your tooth. If it’s dirty, do not wash it with soap. Instead, rinse it gently with warm water. Next, put the tooth back into its socket, if possible. If you can’t replace it in the socket, put it in a small baggie of cold milk. 

- After this, contact Loveland Lakes Family Dentistry immediately to tell us that you’re coming in. Your tooth must be replaced within 1-2 hours for it to be saved, so don't wait!

- You can treat any bleeding with clean gauze or cotton balls. For your pain and discomfort, you can take ibuprofen (Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve). These NSAIDs can help with both pain and swelling. You can also use an ice pack, applied externally to the cheek, for pain relief and to control swelling and inflammation.

- During a dental emergency, it is important to come to our office as soon as possible.
