Emergency Dental Care for severe tooth pain

If you are experiencing sudden, severe toothache, it’s most likely to be caused by decay, an abscessed tooth, gum infection, fractured tooth, or a damaged filling.
Treatment for your severe toothache will be determined by the cause of the pain, usually revealed by an examination and/or an x-ray. Treatments range from extraction of the tooth if it’s not preservable to replacing a damaged filling. In general, emergency dental care is focused on pain alleviation. Thereafter, follow-up appointments are used to treat the root issue.

Emergency Dental Care for Knocked Out Tooth or Loosened Tooth

If you have knocked out a tooth, see a dentist as soon as possible. If possible, try to place the tooth back in its socket, and if it’s not possible, keep the tooth securely in a cup of milk. If you wash the tooth, be careful as you could accidentally remove tissues attached to the root. Knocked out teeth have the best chance of being saved if they are replaced in the socket and treated by a dentist within one hour.

Emergency Dental Care for Chipped or Cracked Tooth

Treatment for a broken, cracked, or chipped tooth will depend on the how severe the condition is. You might need a tooth filling, a dental cap or crown, veneer, or a root canal to treat this injury.

Emergency Dental Care for soft tissue injury to mouth or gums

An injury to the soft tissue of the mouth may include wounds, cuts, or lacerations to the cheek, tongue, or lips. The dentist will conduct a thorough exam, including making sure that there is no associated damage to the bone or teeth.
Treatment depends on the severity of the damage. Generally, smaller surface wounds will heal on their own with proper care (this may include using an antibiotic). If the injury is large and severe, it may require stitches.

Emergency Dental Care for Lost Crown or Tooth Filling

If you lose a dental crown or filling, it’s important for you to seek replacement treatment as soon as possible. Generally, this will require an examination of the area to ensure that the structure of the tooth is still viable, and then a preparation of the area to replace the crown or filling.
