An emergency dentist addresses any dental problem that requires immediate treatment to stop ongoing tissue bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth. Most dental emergencies are situations in which you might lose a broken or knocked-out tooth for good. Visiting Skyview Dental Partners, LLC within 30 minutes of your tooth or mouth injury could mean the difference between saving or losing the tooth.
At Skyview Dental Partners, LLC, the team also offers palliative care as part of its emergency dental services. That includes prescribed pain medication and other immediate pain relief options to alleviate discomfort following dental emergencies.
If you're worried about a severe mouth injury you or a family member has sustained, it's the right time to call an emergency dentist. Immediate treatment calls for immediate action. Common dental emergency situations include:
You may not be dealing with a dental emergency if you chip a tooth but it doesn't appear as if you'll lose the tooth entirely. That said, feel free to contact an experienced dentist at Skyview Dental Partners, LLC if you're concerned. They can explain how to take care of your tooth until you can make it into the office.
Quick action is imperative for a dental emergency like a knocked-out tooth. Without immediate dental care, you may be at risk of losing the tooth. Do your best to rinse your mouth and the damaged tooth. Rinse your mouth and tooth with warm water, being careful not to touch the tooth by the roots.
Gently handle the tooth by the crown (top) as you rinse it. If you can, hold the cleaned tooth by the crown and reinsert it into the empty socket. Try to gently bite down to keep your tooth in place until you can get to Skyview Dental Partners, LLC. Call immediately, or have someone call for you to explain the situation.
What should you do if you can't put the tooth back in your mouth? The goal is to keep the tooth moist at all times. Put it in a cup of milk or in your mouth next to your cheek to help preserve it until you arrive at the dental office. Skyview Dental Partners, LLC is here for you. Call for calm, expert assistance in the event of a dental emergency.
