How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

If you’re experiencing severe oral pain or any out-of-the-ordinary symptoms, it’s vital to call our office as soon as possible. Our team will provide you with over-the-phone first-aid guidance and give you some tips to help relieve your pain until you reach our office. We’ve also included some helpful tips for some of the most common dental emergencies below.


Toothaches are often a sign of an infection that has developed in the inner chamber of your tooth, where the nerve is located. Until you arrive at our office, you can take an over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen to help ease your pain.

Chipped/Broken Tooth

If you’re able to find the piece of your tooth that has broken off, retrieve it and rinse it under cool water. Be sure to store it in a bag and bring it to your appointment. If the broken-off area has left a jagged edge, you can place a piece of orthodontic wax or sugar-free gum to prevent it from irritating your oral tissues.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Time is of the essence in this situation, and it’s vital to get to our office within an hour of the accident so we have the best chance of replanting the tooth. Retrieve your tooth, being sure to only handle it by the biting surface, and gently rinse it under cool water. Place it in a sealable container of milk or saltwater and bring it to our office.

Lost Filling/Crown

Damaged restorations can be cleaned off and temporarily reattached with a small dab of denture adhesive or a piece of sugar-free gum. However, to avoid an infection or sustaining additional damage, it’s important to get it repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Even though dental emergencies are impossible to completely avoid, there are some ways that you can dramatically reduce your risk of experiencing one:

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

Once we examine your mouth and determine what treatment needs to be conducted and the extent of the damage, we can outline a cost for you. Some situations, such as a chipped tooth, require non-invasive and fast solutions, such as cosmetic bonding. However, others, like a tooth infection, may require multiple services, such as root canal therapy and the placement of a dental crown. Whatever your needs, we offer several ways to pay and are more than happy to work with dental insurance plans.
