What To Do In A Dental Emergency?

Knocked Out Adult Tooth

  1. Pick up the tooth by the crown (the pointed part of the tooth usually covered by enamel), do not touch the root.
  2. Rinse the tooth - do not use soap, gently use water to rinse off any dirt. Don’t scrub or dry off the tooth.
  3. Try to put the tooth back in the socket – holding the crown you can gently push it in or set it above the socket and slowly close your mouth. Lightly bite down or use a finger to keep the tooth in place.

If you can’t put it in the socket, keep it moist. You can achieve this by keeping it in your mouth or putting it in a safe liquid such as milk (not tap water).

  1. See a dentist or endodontist within 60 minutes.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, don’t wait – act now. The faster you come see us at Advanced Dental Arts, the greater the chance you can save your tooth and the sooner you can be out of pain. The sooner you can get care the higher the chance of implantation – this will vary on a case-by-case basis, so still see a nearby dentist if you miss this deadline.

Broken, Cracked or Chipped Tooth

  1. Using warm water, rinse out your mouth and any broken pieces.
  2. For bleeding, apply material such as gauze to the affected area for 10 minutes, or until bleeding subsides.
  3.  To keep down swelling, hold a cold compress to the outside of the affected area (mouth, cheek, or lip).
  4. Bring any tooth fragments in a wet towel or gauze to the office as soon as possible.

Object Stuck/Caught In-between Teeth

Try to carefully use floss to remove the object if possible. Do not use something metal like a pin to attempt to prod the object- you risk cutting your gums or scratching the tooth. Instead, try using your tongue or dental floss. Be extra careful if you have TMJ or other jaw pain issues.

If this fails, schedule an appointment.

Missing Crown/Filling

Losing a crown or filling is not automatically an emergency, particularly when not caused by an injury. Sometimes it can happen when grinding or biting down on something. However, if the tooth is infected, you should immediately seek dental care.

Some signs of potential tooth infection:

  • Severe pain (especially when pain relievers do not help) - could be constant throbbing or present when biting/chewing
  • Swelling in face, jaw, lymph nodes, or around the gum area near the crown
  • Fever
  • Difficulty opening mouth/moving jaw
  • Yellow, green, or clear discharge

General Toothache

If you are unsure what is causing your toothache or pain, schedule an appointment. In the meantime, you can try the following for pain management:

  • Ice packs – hold against jaw for 20 minutes
  • Over-the-counter pain reliever/anesthetics
  • Use one of the following rinses:
    • Hydrogen peroxide – do not swallow, mix with water if not a prepackaged wash.
    • Saltwater – mix ½ teaspoon salt into 8 ounces water. Swish for 30 seconds and then spit.

Follow instructions and keep in mind any interactions with your current medications.

Bone Grafting

A bone grafting is a procedure during which, traditionally, a piece of bone is removed from another area of the body and transplanted to the jawbone. A bone graft is necessary when the jawbone is not strong enough to house implants, so the dentist reinforces it additional bone from other areas of the body.

Complete and Partial Dentures

Losing teeth to injury, disease, or decay can be very upsetting and frustrating. From difficulty eating to embarrassment in social situations, living with an incomplete set of teeth has many drawbacks. Fortunately, dentures make it possible to obtain a fully functional set of teeth that look and feel natural.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has rapidly become a very popular component of oral care because it focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth, and overall smile. From subtle changes like teeth whitening to major oral surgeries, cosmetic dentistry encompasses all techniques meant to improve and enhance overall oral appeal.

Teeth Cleaning

In addition to brushing and flossing every day, dental hygiene professionals recommend a teeth cleaning once every six months. In many cases, if patients skip a cleaning or two, they may discover that they have accumulated an unhealthy amount of plaque or bacteria in the mouth. A deep dental cleaning is a more involved process that can eliminate this harmful debris and bacteria that has collected underneath the gum line.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a great way to easily repair minor blemishes in the smile. Gaps, chips, cracks, and discoloration can occur for a number of reasons. These imperfections in our teeth can cause us to teeth can cause us to feel subconscious or embarrassed. Dental bonding is a popular choice because it is a cost-effective way to repair annoying little issues like minor chips or discoloration in the teeth.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge can be used to fill the space caused by teeth that have been lost. The bridge acts as a foundation upon which crowns are secured. They span the empty space in your mouth and are permanently attached by way of the surrounding teeth or implants.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are a popular dental procedure that many oral health care professionals recommend to patients to correct a number of imperfections and conditions in the mouth. Dental crowns can be used in both restorative dentistry procedures as well as cosmetic purposes.

Extractions

Adult teeth don’t always last a lifetime, so dental extraction makes it possible to remove damaged and unhealthy teeth that simply cannot be repaired. Advanced Dental Arts make the entire process quick, efficient, and simple.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an ideal option for patients who want to regain the confidence lost by missing teeth. Implants are intended to look and feel just like real teeth so that you can talk, chew, laugh and brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.

Periodontics

Periodontitis is a form of advanced gum disease that affects almost half of Americans older than 30, according to a study performed by the CDC. If left untreated, the possible result could be loss of several teeth. However, many treatment options are available to address periodontitis.

Veneers

If you're considering getting veneers, it's important to understand what they are and what the procedure involves.

Veneers are thin shells that are placed over the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are usually made of porcelain or composite resin, and they can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic dental issues, such as discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, and misaligned teeth.

We provide patients with a long-term solution that will leave you feeling better than ever both physically and emotionally.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are most commonly known for their use in treating cavities, but they can be beneficial for a number of other reasons. A filling or restoration is when decayed tooth structure, also called a cavity, is removed from the tooth and a tooth-colored replacement material is put in it’s place to restore the natural shape of the tooth.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

The process of full mouth rehabilitation involves working with the entire spectrum of your mouth, including the jaw, the gums, the teeth, and the bite. This is a highly individualized procedure and will vary on a case-by-case basis, but you can rest assured that the experts at Advanced Dental Arts will help you build a beautiful smile!

Implant Supported Dentures

While regular dentures are designed to replace missing teeth by simply resting along the gumline, implant supported dentures are attached to implants installed in the jawbone itself. This is a viable option if you have enough bone to support implants and prefer to secure your dentures with the help of such implants.

Invisalign™

Invisalign™ is a set of clear removable dental aligners that are custom made to fit each and every patient’s mouth. This advanced form of orthodontic treatment allows patients to discreetly correct their smile without the burden of traditional braces.

Overdenture

Dental implants and dentures are an excellent way to restore a healthy appearance to smiles that are missing teeth or rows of teeth. Individuals who are missing rows of teeth can seek permanent relieve from overdentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are a wonderful, affordable solution for patients who do not need full set dentures. Many patients use them as an alternative to permanent bridges and dental implants since they can fill the space of multiple missing teeth.

Teeth Whitening

There are a huge variety of tooth whitening services available to patients both over-the-counter and through your dentist in Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Lakeland, and New Port Richey.
