Dental Emergency FAQs

Although no one ever expects to have a dental emergency, 1 in 6 Americans faces one every year. If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, it is normal to have several questions. We do not want to see you waste valuable time or place your smile at risk because you do not know what to do. Your emergency dentist, Dr. Makadia, has the answers you need to get help right away.

What is Considered a Dental Emergency?

Some dental emergencies are obvious, such as if you have a tooth knocked out or one breaks. Other times, it can be less obvious that you need immediate care, like if you have a toothache. We understand it can be confusing. A member of our team is only a phone call away if you have any concerns about an issue. We will tell you if you need an urgent appointment and how to provide first aid while you wait. Common dental emergencies include:

  • Knocked out or dislodged tooth
  • Chipped or cracked tooth
  • Object caught in teeth
  • Toothache
  • Lost crown or filling
  • Swelling
  • Severe pain
  • Bleeding
  • Oral sores
  • Abscess

Should I See a Dentist Near Me or Go to the Hospital?

As with any emergency, your first instinct may be to head to your local hospital instead of a dentist, but this may depend on the situation. Most emergency rooms are not equipped to provide dental services. As a result, they may not treat the dental issue. In most cases, you will want to visit your dentist; however, if you have uncontrollable bleeding, suspect a broken jaw, or have other injuries, head to the hospital first.

Can I Wait Until My Next Appointment?

No one has time in their schedule for an unexpected trip to their dentist. You may be tempted to wait until your next appointment to have the issue treated, but this could cost you your tooth. As with any emergency, time is of the utmost importance. Depending on the problem you are having, leaving it untreated could lead to an infection. Now, instead of a simple treatment, like a dental crown, you may need an extraction. Therefore, it is best to see your dentist right away!

When Is a Root Canal Necessary?

Does your tooth hurt, and it is not because of a sinus infection or lodged food? Have you taken over the counter pain medication and nothing seems to help? What do you do now? If the pain in your tooth has reached the inner layer, known as the pulp, it means the tooth is decayed or infected. The only way to find relief is to have a root canal. This procedure will safely and effectively remove the infection and eliminate the severe pain you are experiencing.
