Emergency Dental Care Near Me

It can mean the difference between saving or losing a tooth if you know what to do in an oral emergency. In most dental situations, you need to act quickly and make an appointment right away. When you call Smile Island Pediatric & Adult Dental Group, we always make time for last-minute appointments. The information below will help you do what you need to do before you go to the emergency room.

Fillings that are broken

A broken filling is a minor problem that happens a lot of the time. Please make an appointment as soon as possible if you notice a broken or loose filling. A broken filling can make your tooth more likely to get cavities. During your visit, the filling will be changed to strengthen the tooth and keep germs out of the area.

Taking Out A Tooth

There are some things you can do to save a permanent tooth if you or someone in your family hits it out. Always keeping the tooth wet is the most important thing you can do. Put the tooth back in its place if you can. The tooth can also be put in a small bowl of milk or water. People like milk better. Hold the tooth by the top, never the root, whenever you touch it. Do not pull off or scrub off any pieces of connected tissue. If you get help within an hour, you have the best chance of saving the tooth.

Teeth that are chipped or broken

What you should do first if you chip or break a tooth is gather all the pieces. Next, you should rinse your mouth out with warm water right away to clean the area. A chipped tooth might not be a dental emergency right away, but it could get worse over time. We might offer dental bonding or a dental crown to make the tooth look better and work better.

Dental Pain and Damage

One of the most obvious signs that you may be having a dental emergency is when you are in a lot of pain. With a mouthguard, you can easily avoid trauma and injuries that can happen during sports and other hard activities. In the event that you do get hurt, a cold cloth can help reduce the swelling. A toothache or illness could be the cause of pain that seems to come from nowhere. If you have a severe toothache, you might need a therapeutic procedure like a root canal.

Tooth abscesses

In most cases, an abscess is caused by an infection with germs near the root of a tooth. This is a dangerous condition that can hurt the teeth or soft tissues around your mouth if you don't treat it. If you have an abscess, it needs to be cleaned right away to get rid of the infection. Most of the time, the infection is caused by decay inside the tooth that goes to the root. After the abscess is gone, you might need a root canal to get your tooth health back to normal.

Too much bleeding

When soft tissues are hurt, they often bleed too much. Tongue, face, lip, and gum injuries are all soft tissue injuries. To stop the bleeding, rinse your mouth with cold water and put a wet gauze pad over the area that is bleeding. Over-the-counter pain killers like Advil or Ibuprofen can help you deal with the pain. Make sure to get to your meeting as soon as possible if the bleeding doesn't stop.
