Emergency Dentistry Q&A
What is emergency dentistry?
Emergency dentistry is urgent care for your teeth, gums, or oral tissues. Dental emergencies can happen for a variety of reasons, from a car accident or sports injury to simply biting down wrong on a hard piece of food.
Dr. Aurasteh and her team are highly skilled in dealing with dental emergencies, and take every measure to accommodate you and provide the care you need, when you need it the most.
How do I know if I need emergency dental care?
There are several situations that call for emergency care, including:
- Knocked-out tooth
- Dislodged filling, crown, or bridge
- Crack, fracture, or chip on your tooth
- Severe toothache
- Cut on your tongue, gums, lips, or cheek
If you’re unsure whether your dental condition is an emergency, call Dr. Aurasteh and her team. They are happy to consult with you over the phone to determine if you need emergency dental care.
How should I handle a dental emergency?
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, get yourself to Oral Care Dentistry: Parnaz Aurasteh, DDS, as soon as possible. Depending on your situation, receiving proper care within 30 minutes of your emergency could mean the difference between saving or losing your tooth.
If your dental emergency involves a dislodged filling or restoration, make sure to bring it with you to the office.
If you’ve knocked out your tooth, you should also bring it with you to the office, but first, rinse off the tooth with warm water. Try to reinsert it into the empty socket and gently bite down until you can see Dr. Aurasteh.
If you’re unable to get the tooth back in the socket, you can protect the roots from drying out by keeping it in a glass of milk or saliva. When handling the tooth, make sure to avoid touching the roots.
What emergency dental treatments are available?
Your emergency dentistry treatment depends on your particular dental emergency. For example, if you have a severe toothache or a significantly damaged tooth, Dr. Aurasteh might perform an emergency root canal or recommend an extraction.
The team at Oral Care Dentistry: Parnaz Aurasteh, DDS, always makes sure to consider your safety and comfort, providing you with pain management and procedures that are safe and effective.
