Why Choose Dental Center of Lakewood for Emergency Dentistry?

How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Rather than racing to your closest emergency room or urgent care clinic, it’s always best to contact a dentist when your teeth or gums are concerned. Our team has the training and equipment to handle these types of issues that other medical facilities simply don’t, meaning we’ll be able to treat the root of the problem as well as your current symptoms. Before you’re able to come see us, here are a few ways you can take control during some common dental emergencies.

Toothaches

Rinse and floss around the hurting tooth to remove any food debris that might be stuck and causing the pain. Take an OTC medication if this doesn’t help and apply a cold compress if there is any swelling. Swishing with warm saltwater a few times an hour can help temporarily relieve the discomfort as well.

Chipped/Broken Teeth

Recover as many pieces of the tooth that you can, put them in a safe container, and remember to bring them to our dental office. Use a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling, and cover the remaining tooth with some sugarless gum so a rough edge can’t accidentally injure the mouth or lips.

Knocked-Out Tooth

The sooner we’re able to see you, the better chance we’ll have of replanting the tooth. Ideally, you should make it to our dental office within an hour or so of the accident. Place the tooth either under your tongue or in a container of milk to keep it alive. Apply some gentle pressure using gauze or a clean rag to stop any bleeding.

Lost Filling / Crown

Put the restoration back onto the tooth and avoid chewing with it until you can see us. A little dab of toothpaste can help it stay in place, but this is only a temporary fix. If the restoration is completely broken or lost, cover the tooth with some dental cement.

Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

No two dental emergencies are exactly alike, and because of this, the treatment (and associated costs) are always different from patient to patient. We’ll go over your options and give you a price estimate after we’ve evaluated you in person. We’re happy to accept dental insurance and offer flexible financing to make this type of care easily affordable, so don’t delay in seeking emergency care if you ever need it!
