Emergency Dentistry Q&A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dental care encompasses various issues such as toothaches, chipped or fractured teeth, impacted or infected teeth, dislodged crowns, and broken dentures. 

Any time you suffer an injury due to a fall, sports play, or a car wreck or develop sudden mouth pain, you should seek immediate care at THE DENTAL BOUTIQUE. Waking up with extreme oral pain or developing an abscess on your gums also counts as a dental emergency. Sometimes, all it takes is biting into a hard piece of food to suffer tooth damage.

How do I know that I need emergency dental care?

Seek emergency dental care if you experience:

  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A tooth with a large crack or significant piece broken off
  • Damage to soft tissue (the gums or inside the cheek)
  • Severe tooth pain or an abscess
  • Lost dental restoration

Tiny chips can usually wait for a visit, but if you have concerns, definitely call the office. The friendly staff can help you determine if you should come in right away for care. Know that getting dental treatment sooner rather than later can often mean the difference between losing a tooth and saving it.

What are emergency dentistry treatments?

The goal of emergency dentistry is to provide relief while preventing further damage. Emergency dental treatments aim to get at the root cause of your complaint. The particulars of your treatment depend on your case.

For example, if you come to THE DENTAL BOUTIQUE with tooth pain because of an infection, you may need a root canal or extraction. A root canal removes the infection causing pain and restores the integrity of the affected tooth. For teeth that are beyond repair, an emergency extraction may be best.

If you have a tooth that’s knocked out, it may be reset if you act quickly enough. Brush any debris off the tooth and hold it inside your cheek or in a cup of milk as you make your way to THE DENTAL BOUTIQUE.

Dr. Cabanzon can replace broken dentures and crowns or reset them in an emergency visit. In some cases of chipped or broken teeth, you may need a new crown. The revolutionary CEREC® technology available at THE DENTAL BOUTIQUE means you can have a custom crown placed at one appointment.
