Dr. Valle can help in relieving pain, saving teeth from permanent damage, and promoting overall dental health. Common dental emergencies include chipped teeth, toothaches, lost fillings, swelling of the gums, and dental bleeding. We recognize that a dental emergency could happen to anyone, so we offer an emergency line available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide treatment for patients who have suffered dental trauma or have an infection that requires immediate attention.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, it is essential to seek treatment from an emergency dentist as soon as possible.
What to Do if You Experience a Dental Emergency
It’s important to stay calm and take immediate action. The first step is to assess the situation and determine whether you need to see a dentist right away or if you can wait until regular business hours. If the dental emergency is severe and you are in pain, you should go to the nearest hospital emergency room. If the situation is not as serious, you can contact our after-hours number for assistance.
If you have a knocked-out tooth, it’s essential to find the tooth and then rinse it off with water. Take care only to handle the tooth by the crown, so you don’t damage the sensitive tooth root area. Once you have done this, you can try to put the tooth back in its socket. If this is not possible, you can place the tooth in a cup of milk or saltwater. It’s also essential to control any bleeding by applying pressure with a clean cloth or gauze.
If you have a toothache, you can try to relieve the pain by rinsing your mouth with warm water or taking over-the-counter pain medication. It’s also important to avoid chewing on hard foods or putting pressure on the tooth that is causing the pain.
If you suspect you have an infection, it’s essential to see a dentist as soon as possible. Symptoms of an infection include severe pain, swelling, and fever. If you experience these symptoms, you should contact our office immediately.
If you follow these steps, you will be able to handle most dental emergencies effectively. However, it’s always best to seek professional help as soon as possible to ensure that the problem is appropriately taken care of and to avoid any further complications.
How to Prepare for a Dental Emergency
You can’t always predict when a dental emergency will happen, but there are some things you can do to prepare. First, it’s crucial to have the contact information for our office and our after-hours number so you can quickly get in touch with us if you need to. It’s also good to keep a small first-aid kit in your home that includes gauze, pain-relieving medication, and a clean cloth to control bleeding. Finally, it’s important to know where your nearest hospital emergency room is located in case you need to go there for treatment.
