What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency can include any situation in which your teeth, gums, tooth restorations, or other mouth structures need immediate attention. Among the most common dental emergencies are:

  • Knocked-out or loose tooth
  • Cracked or broken tooth
  • Very loose permanent tooth
  • Severe tooth or gum pain
  • Pronounced mouth or jaw swelling
  • Persistent bleeding anywhere in your mouth
  • Sudden injury to your mouth
  • Laceration of your gums or inner mouth
  • Very loose or detached crown or veneer
  • Very loose or detached dental implant

Many other situations could be dental emergencies. The general rule is to ask yourself if the situation is causing you enough distress to require treatment right away. If you can say “yes” to that question, then you probably have a dental emergency.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

Call Lashen Dental Group immediately if you have a dental emergency.

Tooth knocked loose

If your tooth is loose or knocked out, it’s crucial that you get help within an hour to have the best chance of saving the tooth. With a loose tooth, bring the tooth with you, submerged in a glass or cup of regular cow’s milk.

Lacerations and bleeding

For lacerations, bleeding, and other similar problems, apply gentle pressure to try to stem the bleeding until you get to Lashen Dental Group.

Severe swelling

If your jaw or mouth is swollen, you can apply an ice pack to the outer jaw to help reduce swelling and pain until you get to the office.

The team is prepared for all kinds of dental emergencies, so don’t worry.
