What is considered a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any urgent situation that requires immediate attention. If you aren’t sure whether or not you or a loved one need to see an emergency dentist, please give our office a call, and we’ll be happy to assist. Some common dental emergencies include:
- Severe Dental Pain
- Chipped, Cracked, or BrokenTooth
- Knocked-Out Adult Tooth
- Uncontrollable Gum Bleeding
- Dental Abscess
- Foreign Object Stuck Between Teeth
What can I do for my tooth pain?
If your tooth pain is mild and it comes and goes, our team will certainly want to take a look at the tooth and treat it, but you won’t necessarily need to come in for an emergency appointment. Creating a warm saltwater rinse and swishing it around your mouth for thirty seconds can help to kill bacteria and numb tooth pain. Home remedies like vanilla extract or garlic paste can be applied to the tooth and used to reduce pain. If your tooth pain becomes much worse or you develop a fever, please call our office to schedule an emergency dental appointment.
Should I see an emergency dentist or go to the ER?
In many cases, patients will head straight to an emergency room for a tooth, gum, or mouth-related injury. Unfortunately, many emergency rooms lack the tools and experienced staff required to properly treat dental-related issues. If you have other serious injuries that are very time-sensitive, then it may be better for you to head straight to an ER. Otherwise, your tooth pain, dental trauma, or other issues should be treated by a Joplin emergency dentist.Contact Us
