Emergency Dental Care Q & A

When do I need emergency dental care?

Some situations, like a knocked-out tooth, are obvious cases for emergency care. Some other situations that might require urgent care include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Partially dislodged tooth
  • Lost filling or crown
  • Getting something stuck between two teeth
  • Abscess

If you’re experiencing any of these conditions or are unsure as to whether your condition is considered a dental emergency, call the office at Cedar Mountain Dental. One of the knowledgeable and friendly team members will be happy to consult with you over the phone to determine whether your situation requires emergency care.

How do you accommodate dental emergencies?

The doctors and staff at Cedar Mountain Dental are highly skilled in dealing with emergency situations. They’re not only adept in a variety of dental procedures but also highly capable of performing under pressure. Their calm, comforting, and compassionate chairside manner creates a relaxing atmosphere that puts those with dental emergencies at ease. 

The practice also takes extra measures to accommodate their patients in a time of emergencies. They’re open Saturdays and offer same-day appointments, giving patients the care they need when they need it. They charge a $69 appointment fee for emergency visits that’s credited towards any service performed that day.

How should I handle a knocked-out tooth?

A knocked-out tooth is always a dental emergency. If you’ve knocked out your tooth, get yourself to Cedar Mountain Dental immediately. There, your dentist will try to reattach it. If they’re unable to get your tooth back in its socket, they can offer several restorative options, like dental implants or a bridge.

Make sure to bring your tooth with you to the office. When you locate it, pick it up by the crown (never touch the roots) and rinse it off in lukewarm water. If possible, try to temporarily get it back in its socket and bite down gently until you arrive at Cedar Mountain Dental. If you can’t get it back in its socket, keeping it in a glass of milk or saliva will help prevent the roots from drying out.
