Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What are the most common dental emergencies?

Broken teeth are by far the most common condition the Pinole Family Dental staff addresses. The Pinole Family Dental team also fixes crowns and fillings that come loose, along with broken braces or brackets. You can also visit their facility for excruciating toothaches that seem to come out of nowhere.

Other dental emergencies that Pinole Family Dental addresses include:

  • Knocked out teeth
  • Accidentally misaligned teeth
  • Oral tissue injuries

How do dentists treat dental emergencies?

It’s critical to visit Pinole Family Dental promptly for any dental emergency. If visiting Pinole Family Dental isn’t an option right now, go to the nearest emergency room.

If a tooth is chipped, your emergency dentist will fill it, conduct a root canal procedure, or install a temporary crown. If a tooth is loose or missing, your emergency dentist will assess the situation and attempt to re-implant the tooth (or give you a temporary implant, if necessary).

Depending on the procedure, your emergency dentist will use minimal sedation, moderate sedation, deep sedation, or general anesthesia.

What can I do in a dental emergency?

Be prepared far in advance: Purchase a Save-A-Tooth kit at your local pharmacy in case of an emergency.

If you knock out a permanent tooth, keep it moist in milk or lukewarm water. You can also place it inside your cheek, but be sure you’re not in danger of swallowing it. Do the same for a child’s baby tooth.

If you crack a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and visit Pinole Family Dental or the nearest emergency room. Dentists can also treat severe bites or cuts to the tongue or lips; visit Pinole Family Dental or the nearest emergency room if bleeding is extensive.

Many dentists see patients with emergency toothaches that are caused by food particles stuck between teeth. Try to floss, but never use sharp instruments to try to remove an object.

Although the Pinole Family Dental team hopes that you never experience a dental emergency, they are here for you and will care for any dental emergency you might encounter. They can usually book same-day appointments, and they offer convenient evening and weekend appointments.
