Need an Emergency Dentist?

There are a variety of situations that may require an emergency dentist. You need to be prepared and know what to do, and when to call Reflection Ridge Dental. 

Types of Dental Emergencies 

It’s summer and people play hard, which increases the risk of knocking out teeth. If your tooth is knocked out, follow these steps:  

  1. Pick it up without touching the root. 
  1. Rinse it carefully, and if possible, re-insert the tooth back into the socket — if you can’t re-insert the tooth, put it in a sealed container of milk or water. 
  1. Finally, contact the emergency dentist at Reflection Ridge Dental right away.

Sometimes crowns will break or pull off the tooth. If this happens, your tooth could become sensitive to the touch, hot, or cold. You are also at a greater risk for infection. Contact one of our dentists to avoid further damage to the tooth or the nerves. Missing fillings are like broken crowns. Missing fillings can expose your tooth’s roots and cause extreme pain and infection and must be treated right away. 

A tooth abscess is also a dental emergency. In these cases, the infection has set into the tooth. Abscesses can cause fever, swelling on the face or gums, sensitivity to hot or cold, and pain. Abscesses can be potentially life-threatening if not treated appropriately and quickly. Don’t waste time, contact Reflection Ridge Dental if you suspect you have an abscess. 

A persistent, unexplained toothache is also a reason to reach out to the dentist. Constant pain and swelling indicate a bigger issue that should be diagnosed immediately. If you experience tooth pain, there are steps you can take to help. First, apply a cold compress to your mouth where the ache is. Then rinse your mouth with salt water and use an over-the-counter medication such as Orajel to help with the pain. Call the dental team at Reflection Ridge immediately.

Lost Tooth

Furthermore, if you have a tooth that has been knocked out, here is what you can do before seeing an emergency dentist.

First, handle the tooth with care. In addition, you should always hold the tooth by the crown, also known as the chewing surface. It’s important not to touch the root as it’s protected by enamel.

Second, it’s important to keep the tooth moist by immersing it in milk. Lastly, it’s crucial to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Our skilled and compassionate team is ready to help with your emergency. Call us after hours to get on our schedule for first thing the next day.
