What is a True Dental Emergency?
Some of the Top Reasons You Would Want to Call Our Office For a Dental Emergency Are:
- Severe Toothache – Tooth pain is the number one reason for dental calls to our office. If your tooth is causing a lightning-type pain that keeps you up at night, please call.
- A Fractured/Broken Tooth – If you have chipped or broken a piece of your tooth, a call may be necessary to prevent further pressure or pain breaking off even more of the tooth .
- An Infected Tooth – If you have a cavity containing bacteria gets to your nerve, it can cause an infection and sometimes form a wall around itself, turning into a dental cyst.
- A Tooth With Deep Decay to the Nerve – If your tooth has a cavity in close proximity to the nerve, it may cause irreversible pulpitis, or inflammation of your dental nerve.

At Open Late Dentistry, we are first concerned with getting our patients out of pain and lowering the chance of infection spreading. In an emergency appointment our goal is to perform treatment if a tooth is restorable the same day, unless infection is present.
Extreme tooth pain, broken teeth, infection are the typical reasons for a dental emergency. Please see our Blog Article for this subject at https://openlatedentistry.com/can-your-dental-emergency-wait/
Until your visit, you might also find temporarily relief with these few tips:
- Severe toothache – Apply a cold compress to the side of your mouth nearest the aching area to reduce discomfort and any swelling that may occur. If the tooth is bleeding around its socket, then bite down gently but firmly on a clean, moist piece of gauze.
- Broken tooth – If possible, gather the broken piece(s) of the tooth, rinse them carefully with warm water, and bring them with you to your emergency appointment. To reduce pain and swelling, follow the steps for a severe toothache above.
- Debris stuck between teeth – Rinse your mouth carefully with warm water and try to dislodge the debris using dental floss. If it does not come out easily, then don’t force it. Instead, call us and schedule an emergency visit to successfully remove it.
- Knocked-out (avulsed) tooth – Collect the tooth, if possible, and rinse it in cool water, taking care to hold it only by the crown and not the root. Try to gently replace the tooth in its socket, but if not successful, then place it in a small container of milk and bring it with you to your emergency dental appointment.
If you experience one of these critical signs, then seeking dental treatment as soon as possible is the best way to aleve any discomfort and mitigate any tooth damage that has resulted.
If your tooth has had a root canal, or is not causing pain, we recommend you not recement the crown for the possibility of aspirating it while asleep if over-the-counter cement fails.
If your tooth is causing pain and you must recement, or it is a front tooth you need for appearances, please use denture cream on a crown with the old cement cleaned out, or a temporary cement from a local pharmacy (e.g. Dentek) like CVS or Walgreens. Contact us and come in to have it evaluated for WHY it fell off and we can recement it with a more permanent cement.
