Emergency Dentistry FAQs
How do I treat tooth pain?
At home, take over-the-counter pain medication. If you are experiencing swelling, apply a cold compress to your jaw. Your tooth pain may be caused by a tooth or gum infection. Please schedule an appointment in our office as soon as possible so we can discover the cause of your pain.
What do I do if I knocked out a tooth?
If you find your lost tooth, lightly rinse it in water and place it in a cup of saliva or milk to transport to our dental office. If the tooth is preserved in this way, we may be able to reattach it within one hour of loss. We also provide dental implants if the missing tooth cannot be reattached. Dental implants replace teeth at the root. They feel and function just like natural teeth.
What can I do if my dental restoration breaks or falls out?
Bring the broken appliance with you to our office. Dr. Greenberg will determine the best treatment plan for replacing the appliance. He may recommend replacing the appliance with a more stable restoration.
How do I remove an object between my teeth?
If you have an object stuck in your teeth, gently floss between your teeth and do not use any sharp objects. If you cannot remove the object, please contact our office so that we can help you dislodge it.
How to Prevent Dental Emergencies
During routine visits to our dental office, our hygienists and dentists can examine your teeth and gums to catch dental problems early. Discovering dental problems early on can reduce your risk of experiencing a dental emergency. During preventive care visits, we can help our patients address developing oral health concerns and recommend the appropriate dental treatments. Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine at home also reduces plaque buildup and decreases your risk of developing gum disease. If you play contact sports, wearing a well-fitting mouthguard reduces your risk of injury to your teeth and gums and even concussions.
