Emergency Dentist FAQs

What is a dental emergency?

Dental Emergencies can range from severe damage and trauma to malfunctions in your restorations. Some examples of a dental emergency include:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Broken braces
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • A tooth that is partly or completely knocked out of its socket
  • Injury to the gums, tongue or other soft tissue
  • Oral abscess
  • Losing a filling, crown or other dental restoration
What should I do if I loose a tooth?

In the event that you have lost or broken a tooth, getting to the dentist within 30 minutes can potentially save the tooth. Stay calm, try to locate the tooth, and place it in a cup of milk or your own saliva. Only touch the tooth by the crown. You may wish to rinse the tooth, just be sure not to scrub it or remove any root material attached.

There are some steps you can take to help increase the chance of saving a knocked-out tooth:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water
  • Gently place a piece of gauze or a moist cloth in your mouth to stop bleeding and reduce swelling
  • Apply cold compress on the outside of the painful portion of your mouth
  • Collect pieces of cracked or broken teeth and rinse them off, then bring the pieces with you to the office
  • If you lose a tooth, don’t handle it by the root
What should I do if my crown or filling breaks or falls out?

If your crown or filling breaks, or falls out, try to locate the broken piece. NEVER attempt to reattach the broken filling or crown by yourself. In some cases, Dr. Barakat may be able to reattach your restoration, if not, we offer same day dental restorations with CEREC and work closely with a local lab to restore your smile.

Is tooth pain a dental emergency?

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, it is important to get to the dentist as soon as possible. Cavities and gum disease are common causes of tooth pain. In rare cases, an abscess may be causing the pain and it is essential to seek treatment quickly to prevent further damage.
