What is emergency treatment?

The Family Dental Group team treats all types of dental emergencies. The practice saves appointment times in their schedule to treat dental emergencies you or a loved one may encounter. The dental team uses the latest advances in same-day dental treatments to repair a damaged or knocked-out tooth, optimizing your results.

Why is emergency treatment important?

Emergency dentistry is offered because some situations can’t wait for a regular appointment to be dealt with. Seek emergency dentistry if you or a family member is struggling with:

  • Toothache
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Extreme hot or cold sensitivity
  • Pus in the gumline
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Knocked-out permanent teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Soft-tissue damage
  • Damaged or knocked-out tooth restoration 
  • Gum or facial swelling

Promptly treating a dental emergency increases the chances of saving an infected, damaged, or knocked-out tooth and preventing further problems.

What should I do during a dental emergency?

During a dental emergency, call the Family Dental Group office right away. Stay calm and place pressure on any bleeding. If you have a broken tooth, knocked-out tooth, or broken tooth restoration, save it and bring it to the office.

Place a knocked-out natural tooth in saliva or milk to keep it moist, and put an ice pack on swollen or painful areas of your mouth.

What should I expect during emergency treatments?

During emergency treatments, the Family Dental Group team sees you right away. They offer pain relief and examine your gums, teeth, and mouth. Your dentist also discusses your oral health history, reviews your symptoms, and often orders dental X-rays to determine which emergency dental treatment is needed.

You might be a candidate for:

  • Tooth-colored dental fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Root canal therapy
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Extractions
  • Minor surgery
  • Laser treatment 
  • Soft-tissue repair
  • Dental implants

If you require a minor procedure, your dentist first numbs the treatment area to ensure maximum comfort. They also offer a sedative to relax you.

Your provider follows up with you after emergency treatment to ensure effective, long-lasting results. Don’t hesitate to call the Family Dental Group office with questions about your treatment plan or if you require same-day dental care.
