What Is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is a specialty dental service that caters to patients who’ve suffered unexpected dental complications that require immediate or quick attention from a dentist in Bankers Hill. These complications (dental emergencies) require prompt treatment, and failure to do so could spiral into more severe conditions. At SmileStyle Dental Studio, we offer same-day appointments for dental emergencies so you can preserve your dental health in case of a dental emergency.

Knocked Out Tooth

Knocking out your tooth during an accident, physical sports, or after falling down is a dental emergency. Prompt treatment by a licensed dentist could salvage the tooth and eliminate tooth pain. You could save the tooth and sidestep dental implants if you get to the dentist within an hour of knocking out your teeth.

Severe Toothache

A severe toothache that doesn’t stop even after taking pain medication is also a dental emergency since emergency dentistry is the only way to stop the pain. The dentist will administer a local anesthetic to stop the pain before addressing the underlying issue behind the pain. They may also prescribe stronger medication to help deal with the pain.


Broken and Lost Dental Restorations

It’s important to see your dentist the moment you break or lose a dental restoration. Losing or breaking a restoration exposes vulnerable areas of your teeth and mouth to infection. Doing so is also extremely painful, and painkillers will do nothing to help. The dentist will repair or replace your restoration in no time.

Steps to Take in a Dental Emergency

Keep Calm and Assess the Situation

The first thing to do in a dental emergency is to keep a calm head. That way, you can properly assess the situation and provide a detailed description of the dental emergency when you contact your dentist. In case of bleeding, use a warm water solution to rinse your mouth gently and place a cotton gauze on the affected area to stop the bleeding.

Manage Pain and Discomfort

Pain is common with most dental emergencies. Consider buying OTC painkillers to help manage pain and discomfort before you get to the dentist's office. Alternatively, you can try homemade remedies to pain, like peppermint tea bags, hydrogen peroxide, and a cold compress.

Contact Your Dentist

After managing the pain, contact an emergency dentist, preferably one that offers same-day appointments like SmileStyle Dental Studio. Explain your dental emergency to the dentist as clearly and as accurately as possible, and wait for instructions from the dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions

The longer you delay getting emergency dental treatment, the worse your dental situation gets. Ignoring emergency treatment could exacerbate the dental issue, leading to more severe issues that are more complex and expensive to treat. Plus, getting emergency dental treatment is the best way to stop the pain from a dental emergency.

You can salvage a knocked-out tooth if you take the right steps after knocking it out. First, pick up the tooth and rinse it with cold running water. Next, palace the tooth in a jar of milk or saliva and take it with you to the dentist's office. If possible, you can put the tooth back in place (but don’t force it) until you see the dentist.
