Dental Emergencies Q&A

What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is when you experience a dental problem requiring immediate treatment, whether to stop bleeding, alleviate pain, or to save a tooth that’s cracked or fallen out. 

You may need emergency dental care if you’re experiencing sudden swelling, lingering pain, or injury to your mouth and teeth. You shouldn’t wait for your regular dental appointment to get treatment for:

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Trauma to your jaw or any part of your mouth
  • Severe pain or discomfort
  • Restorations (bridgework, veneers, crowns) that have come lose
  • Unexplained bleeding
  • Infections or abscesses

Woodlands Elite Dental Partners stands ready to help you with skilled, compassionate care and same-day treatment for your dental emergency.

Is a toothache an emergency?

If you’re experiencing severe pain, don’t hesitate to seek emergency dental treatment. You should not wait for your next dental appointment. Pain is an indication of a problem. 

For example, you may be experiencing pain as a result of an infection. If you leave a tooth infection untreated, it not only worsens but may spread to other parts of your body and cause an even greater problem.

What should I do when a tooth gets knocked out?

If you have a knocked-out tooth, contact Woodlands Elite Dental Partners immediately. It’s important to receive treatment as soon as possible. If you have the tooth, you should try and place it back into the tooth socket. If this isn’t possible, place the tooth in some milk to keep the tooth alive. Get to Woodlands Elite Dental Partners as soon as possible for treatment.

How soon should I visit the dentist for treatment?

The sooner you get the treatment you need, the better. Prompt treatment is vital to prevent complications. It’s best to contact Woodlands Elite Dental Partners for advice on what to do when facing an emergency. 

How can I avoid common dental emergencies?

You can avoid dental emergencies by taking good care of your teeth. You should practice good oral hygiene and protect your teeth by wearing a mouthguard when engaging in any high-impact or high-contact sport.
