About Dental Emergencies

  • What should I do in a dental emergency?

    The first thing you’ll want to do if you find yourself or someone in your family experiencing a dental emergency is call our office right away. This allows our team to offer advice and determine whether or not we need to see you right away or if an appointment can be made at a later date. If we decide that the best course of action is for you to visit your nearest Meadow Creek Family Dentistry location, we will clear a spot for you in our schedule and begin preparing a treatment room for your arrival so we can be ready to help right away.

  • What are some common types of dental emergencies?

    It’s not always clear whether or not an injury or affliction is truly an emergency, which is why we always recommend calling first. However, there are a few common types of dental emergencies that almost always require immediate or same-day dental care. These include:

    • Unrelenting tooth or mouth pain
    • Uncontrollable bleeding and/or swelling
    • Cracked, broken, or knocked-out tooth
    • Lost dental restoration
    • Foreign object lodged between teeth
    • Abscess
  • Should I go to the ER or the dentist?

    In many cases, patients will assume that the best thing to do is visit the closest urgent care or emergency room for treatment. If the problem is tooth, gum, or jaw-related however, the emergency room may not be able to do much except offer painkillers and refer you to an emergency dentist. Dental practices that offer emergency care have the tools and expertise required to do things like reattach knocked out teeth and perform emergency root canals, areas that emergency room doctors typically have no knowledge or experience in. Should you find yourself in a situation that requires emergency dental care, our team will be happy to assist.
