Expert Emergency Care
Toothaches

A serious and prolonged toothache usually means that you either have a very deep cavity, or your tooth has become infected and may require a root canal. Either way, a toothache that lasts more than 1-2 days and causes you severe pain is an emergency, and you should get assistance from a dentist immediately.

Oral Trauma

Oral trauma can result in a loose tooth, a knocked-out (avulsed) tooth, or a cracked or broken tooth. All of these issues require immediate dental care. Knocked-out teeth, in particular, must be replaced within 1-2 hours of loss to save the tooth, so contact Country Day Dental right away to get help.

Lost Or Damaged Dental Work

If you pull out a filling or lose a dental crown, you need to have it replaced right away. Losing dental work exposes the vulnerable tooth structure beneath it to decay and further damage. This could result in a cavity or other oral health problems if you do not replace your dental work right away. 

Bleeding Gums

Cuts and lacerations to the gums and other oral tissues may need to be stitched by a dentist if they do not stop bleeding within 1-2 hours. In addition, gums bleeding randomly could be a sign of periodontal (gum) disease, which should also be diagnosed by a dentist right away.

What Constitutes A Dental Emergency?

If you think that dental emergencies only are things like broken teeth, you may be surprised at how broad this category really is. 

As a rule, any oral health problem that is causing you serious pain or bleeding and that you can’t treat on your own qualifies as a dental emergency. Let’s look at a few common dental emergencies now.

What Do I Do If I Have A Dental Emergency And Can’t Come Into The Office?

Some dental emergencies are more urgent than others. A knocked-out tooth, for example, can’t wait. 

Some other emergencies are less urgent, such as lost or damaged dental work. You can call Country Day Dental and Dr. Schmidgall to understand whether your situation is an “emergency” or an “urgency” and we can provide guidance on next steps for solving your issue. You should do your best to relieve your pain and discomfort until you can come into our office.

You can take Advil, Tylenol or other pain relievers to help with discomfort, use gauze to absorb any blood, and apply ice packs to the outside of your mouth to help with pain and swelling. Then, when you have the time, you can come to Country Day Dental to get a permanent solution to your dental emergency.
