Emergency Dentistry Q&A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is dental care provided when you need same-day treatment. They offer same-day appointments to treat oral health problems when time is of the essence. Doing so relieves pain and can even save your tooth.

Why might I need emergency dentistry?

If you or your child has one of the following dental problems, you may require emergency dentistry services at Hallmark Dental:

  • Loose permanent tooth
  • Knocked out permanent tooth
  • Severe tooth decay
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Tooth infection
  • Severe toothache
  • A tooth abscess, or pocket of pus
  • Facial or gum swelling
  • Tooth pain with a fever
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Visible hole in your tooth

Seeking immediate treatment during an emergency situation helps your Hallmark Dental provider reattach a knocked-out tooth or save a severely damaged tooth before it’s too late.

What should I do during a dental emergency?

If you or someone in your family experiences a dental emergency, consider the following until you arrive at Hallmark Dental:

  • Knocked-out tooth: keep the tooth moist in your mouth or in milk
  • Cracked tooth: rinse your mouth with warm water and ice the affected area
  • Toothache: rinse your mouth with warm water and apply ice
  • Objects stuck in the mouth: try gently removing the object with floss
  • Soft tissue injury: clean the area with warm water and apply ice

See the Hallmark Dental team as soon as you can after a dental emergency occurs.

What happens during my appointment?

During an emergency dentistry appointment, your Hallmark Dental provider examines your teeth and gums and takes dental X-rays if necessary. They can repair gum, lip, tongue, and cheek injuries or reattach knocked-out permanent teeth. Your provider might recommend a crown, bridge, implant, root canal, or tooth extraction, depending on the type of injury.

How can I prevent dental emergencies?

You can’t always prevent a dental emergency, but taking precautions reduces your risk. Wear a mouthguard during sports. Don’t chew on hard objects or use your teeth for anything other than chewing on gum or food. Wear a night guard if you grind your teeth while you sleep.

See the Hallmark Dental team every six months for professional cleanings and exams so the team can detect dental problems before serious complications arise.
