Emergency Dental Care at Dr Daniel Tebbi DMD, Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics
If you have a toothache or have suffered a facial injury affecting your teeth or gums, it’s vital to seek immediate dental care. Prolonging treatment may complicate your dental health and overall health as well as increase your treatment costs.
It’s best to establish a relationship with a good dentist to prevent dental emergencies from the start. When you visit us twice per year for a cleaning and exam, Dr. Tebbi can spot issues early, and you can avoid discomfort due to tooth decay and prevent further damage. Injuries are unpredictable, so the best way to defend against them is by using a mouth guard when engaging in sports or other activities where the risk of injury is increased.

In the Meantime
Until you arrive at our dental office, the following advice may help you manage this unexpected dental event:
The pain from a toothache, abscess, or injury can often be reduced with a cold compress or ice-pack. Over-the-counter pain relievers can also be used to ease discomfort if there are no allergies present.
An abscess is an infection that can spread and endanger other teeth; if you have swelling or pimple-like sores around a tooth, you probably have an abscess. Call us right away!
If a tooth is Avulsed (knocked out), try to place it back into the socket after rinsing your mouth and the tooth, gently. If a child has lost a permanent tooth, or if putting the tooth into the socket is impossible, place it in milk or slightly salted water. Time is of the essence in these cases, and we need to see you within the hour for the best outcome.
Broken or dislodged restorations should be repaired within a few days of the occurrence. This vigilance prevents gum tissue from growing into the space reserved for the fitted crown or bridge.
Lost filling or crown, Usually, a crown or filling comes loose while eating. Once it is out of the mouth, the affected tooth may be incredibly sensitive to temperature changes and pressure. Crowns generally become loose because the tooth beneath is decaying. The decay causes shape changes in the teeth – meaning that the crown no longer fits.
If a crown has dropped out of the mouth, make a dental appointment as soon as possible. Keep the crown in a safe place because there is a possibility that the dentist can reinsert it. If the crown is out of the mouth for a long period of time, the teeth may shift or sustain further damage.
