How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Tooth infections and traumatic accidents that damage your smile can occur at any time, and while your first step should be to contact our office for help, you should also be able to manage the situation on your own in the meantime to stop it from growing any worse. The following are a few general tips for handling some of the most common dental emergencies you might experience.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

You can protect your smile by taking some very basic steps. Get a mouthguard to protect your teeth while playing sports. Do not bite down on hard objects or use your teeth to open packages and bottles. Brush and floss at least two times every day to remove harmful bacteria and keep the enamel resistant to decay and damage. And of course, come to our office every six months so that we can catch small dental problems early.

The Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of your care will vary based on the nature of the emergency in question. Different situations will call for different treatments, and this affects the amount you end up paying. Before we move forward with any sort of treatment, we’ll make sure that you’re aware of the costs involved, and we’ll review all your options with you so that you can make a proper decision. This will help you avoid unpleasant surprises when it comes time to pay.

Root Canals

If you are experiencing irritation, pain, or swelling in a specific tooth, you may need root canal therapy. During a root canal, we remove the nerve and pulp, smooth the tooth’s interior, and fill the area with a special material. A crown is usually added to ensure continued protection.

Tooth Extractions

Sometimes, other restorative dentistry options aren’t viable. Maybe you have impacted wisdom teeth or extensively damaged teeth that cannot be saved by other means. In either case, we will remove the affected teeth to prevent further infections.
