Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry at Smile Perfector Dental Group includes premium, immediate dental care when time is of the essence. Dr. Shouhed and his team offer same-day treatment to get you the urgent dental care you need and reduce the risk of serious oral health complications.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

Tooth or gum problems that can indicate a situation requiring emergency dentistry might include:

  • Tooth or gum pain
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Cheek, tongue, or gum injuries
  • Abscess
  • Loose permanent teeth
  • Lost crown or filling
  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Loose or broken braces

If you’re unsure if your situation requires same-day dental care, the friendly staff at Smile Perfector Dental Group can help you over the phone.

What should I do during a dental emergency?

If you or your child experience a dental emergency, stay calm. In the case of a knocked out tooth, rinse the tooth in cool water. Place it back in its socket or in a container with milk, water, or saliva to keep it moist. Head to Smile Perfector Dental Group right away with the tooth. 

If you experience a chipped or fractured tooth, rinse your mouth out with water and apply a cold pack to the area to reduce swelling. If you have a tooth fragment, place it in milk or water and bring it with you to your emergency dentistry appointment. Use a cold compress to reduce the swelling and pain associated with a toothache until you get to Smile Perfector Dental Group.

What happens during emergency dentistry appointments?

When you arrive at a same-day emergency dentistry appointment at Smile Perfector Dental Group, you’re greeted by friendly staff members. If you or your child is in pain, they offer pain management solutions to optimize comfort.

Dr. Shouhed and his team review your symptoms, discuss your oral health history, and examine your teeth, gums, and mouth. They might also take dental X-rays. The right treatment for you depends on the type of dental emergency you experience. It might include:

  • Tooth-colored filling
