Emergency Dentist Q & A

What are common dental emergencies?

Some of the most common dental emergencies are broken or knocked-out teeth. However, several other common conditions also require the attention of an emergency dentist. For example, you should contact Dr. Johnson for emergency dental care if you:

  • Lose a dental crown
  • Sustain a blow to your face that causes severe jaw pain
  • Severe tooth pain or sensitivity
  • Severe swelling in your gums
  • Unstoppable bleeding

Tooth pain or sensitivity to pressure or temperature are signs of infected teeth and gums and abscesses. Getting prompt dental treatment can prevent your condition and your pain from getting worse.

When should I contact an emergency dentist?

You should contact Dr. Johnson when you need an emergency dentist. Some of the signs that you need emergency dental care include a knocked out or broken tooth, pain that stops you from eating or talking, or bleeding that won’t stop.

Dr. Johnson provides round-the-clock emergency dentistry services. In addition to offering extended office hours in the evenings and on weekends, you can reach him at any time. His mission is to take care of you at all times, help you feel comfortable, and protect your dental and oral health.

If you have a dental emergency, call the office for personalized advice and instructions.

What should I do if a tooth is knocked out or broken?

If you knock out a tooth and you act quickly, you may be able to preserve the tooth. First, find the tooth and pick it up, but only touch the crown of the tooth.

If your tooth is dirty, gently rinse it with plain water. If possible, place the tooth back in its socket or nestle it between your cheek and gum. If you can’t put the tooth back into your mouth, put it into a small, sealed container of milk or an emergency tooth preservation kit.

Don’t store your tooth in tap water as the root can’t tolerate exposure to the chemicals in tap water for an extended time. When your tooth is secured, make your way to Dr. Johnson’s office.

Call Dr. Johsnson and let the office know that you’ve lost a tooth and are on your way. They can give you instructions and advice to increase your chances of saving your tooth.

Dr. Johnson is a dedicated and compassionate emergency dentist. If you have a dental emergency, call the practice or schedule a same-day appointment online and make your way to the office for immediate emergency dental care.
