Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is the treatment of dental conditions that require immediate attention, like a knocked-out tooth, severe pain, or tissue bleeding. An emergency dentist is equipped to handle urgent problems, and is trained to work well under pressure, operate quickly, and take every measure possible to restore your oral health.

If you’ve suffered an injury that requires immediate care, get yourself to the Beech Avenue Dental offices as soon as possible, preferably within 30 minutes after the injury. Good and prompt emergency dentistry could mean the difference between saving or losing your tooth.

Do I need emergency dental care?

Some of the conditions that require emergency dentistry include:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Severe pain in your tooth or mouth
  • A significantly broken or cracked tooth
  • Swelling in your gums, tongue, or mouth
  • A permanent tooth that’s come loose
  • Bleeding from your gums, tongue, or the insides of your cheeks
  • Physical trauma to the face or mouth
  • A cut or tear on your lips

You might not need emergency dentistry for all of these situations, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you think you might need immediate treatment, either visit Beech Avenue Dental immediately or call the office so that one of the dental professionals can determine if you need emergency care.

What emergency dentistry services do you provide?

Beech Avenue Dental provides a wide range of emergency dental services, from crown restoration and dental bonding to root canals and tooth extractions.

If your dental emergency is caused by a severely infected or damaged tooth that the Beech Avenue Dental team determines is beyond saving, they might recommend an emergency extraction. Your dentist first numbs your tooth and its surrounding tissues with a local anesthetic, then widens your socket and gently rocks the tooth back and forth until they’ve removed it.

An emergency extraction can save you a great deal of pain in the long run and prevent your nearby teeth from getting infected as well. You might experience some dull pain and swelling for a few days after your extraction, but this is expected. You can minimize your discomfort by icing your face and staying away from hard foods.

If you’re suffering from a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call Beech Avenue Dental or book an appointment online. They’ll get your mouth back to optimal health in no time.
