How soon can I see a dentist if I need emergency dental care?

Emergency dentistry addresses dental concerns that require responsive treatment to prevent further damage and relieve pain. If you experience a dental emergency, it’s essential to seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid potential complications, like infection or permanent damage. 
The experienced dental team at Mowry Dental provides same-day emergency dental care for people with urgent dental issues. Whether you have a sudden problem or worsening symptoms from an existing condition, the team prioritizes your oral health and safety.

What are some examples of problems that need emergency dental care?

Some examples of problems that demand emergency dental care include:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Significant tooth pain
  • Loose permanent teeth
  • Sudden swelling
  • Mouth or jaw injuries
  • Dental abscess
  • Lost crowns or fillings
  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Broken jaw

The sooner you seek treatment for a dental emergency, the better the outcome. Putting off an emergency appointment can lead to additional pain, discomfort, and potentially more complicated and expensive treatment in the future.

How do I know if I need emergency dental care?

Any dental concern that can’t wait 24 hours requires emergency care. If you’re experiencing severe pain or bleeding in your mouth, face, or jaw, or have experienced trauma or injury to your teeth or mouth, don’t hesitate to contact the team at Mowry Dental for emergency dental care. 

How can I manage the pain until I can see a provider for emergency dental care?

Before your appointment, call Mowry Dental for advice tailored to your specific needs.
The team may provide guidance for the following concerns:

Knocked-out teeth

Try to locate the missing tooth and place it in a container of saliva or milk if you can’t insert it back into the socket. Apply a cold compress and take over-the-counter (OTC) anti-inflammatory pain relievers in the meantime.

Fractured teeth

Use a cold compress and OTC pain reliever to reduce swelling and discomfort. If the remaining tooth is jagged, place a small piece of sugar-free gum over the edges to avoid additional injuries.

Tooth pain

Uncovering the cause of tooth pain is critical before the dental team can provide treatment. You can apply a cold compress to the area, but don’t take any medication until the team diagnoses your condition.

Don’t wait to seek professional care for a dental emergency. Call Mowry Dental today or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
