Dental Emergencies

DENTAL EMERGENCIES

Unfortunately, accidents are a part of life. Sometimes, these accidents cause damage to your teeth, mouth, or gums. Magnolia Family Dental Care is proud to provide emergency dental care services to our patients. Seeking assistance from a dental professional following a dental emergency can provide you with an easier recovery and better options for treatment. 

 

Dental emergencies are easily described as any situation that requires an immediate response to stop bleeding, replace a tooth, or alleviate severe pain.

WHY IS EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE IMPORTANT?

Many dental emergencies result in the loss of a natural tooth. However, this doesn’t have to be the case! By contacting the team at Magnolia Family Dental Care immediately after your dental emergency, we can walk you through this unfortunate circumstance, sometimes enabling you to repair your natural tooth. 

 

Waiting too long to seek out dental care following an emergency will almost always result in the loss of a natural tooth and the need for more invasive dental procedures. When facing a potential dental emergency first ask yourself the questions listed below. Once you determine if your situation is, in fact, a dental emergency, call our team and discuss the next steps you should take towards treatment.

ASSESSING A DENTAL EMERGENCY

There are a few ways to determine if the problem you are experiencing is truly a dental emergency. The following are questions to ask while assessing your problem:

 

  • Is there bleeding from the mouth?
  • Are any teeth loose or missing?
  • Is there swelling in the mouth or face?
  • Are there noticeable abscesses or swelling on the gums? 
  • Is there severe pain involved?

 

If the answer ‘yes’ to any of the questions listed above, it is wise to call the team at Magnolia Family Dental Care for further advice on your situation. Getting professional assistance in a timely manner can save your natural teeth and allow for quicker recovery time.

COMMON DENTAL EMERGENCIES

Although there are many dental emergencies that can occur, there are a few common dental emergencies we handle often.

The dental emergencies listed below are only a few of the emergencies we see on a regular basis at Magnolia Family Dental Care. If you are experiencing bleeding, severe pain, or have lost or damaged a tooth, call our team to determine if you require emergency dental care. Our team is ready to serve you! 

Tooth Loss

By far the most common dental emergency we deal with at Magnolia Family Dental is teeth that have become loose or have been knocked out. In some situations, immediate response allows us to replace the natural tooth, eliminating the need for a crown or artificial replacement.

Cracked Tooth

Whether caused by an accident or simply biting on something too hard, cracked teeth are another common dental emergency. Some tooth fractures are more serious than others, depending on the size and location of the crack. If your cracked tooth is not causing you pain, it is not likely a dental emergency. However, you should schedule an appointment within a few days of your accident.

Abscess or Infection

Abscess or infection on the gum line is something that we see often at Magnolia Family Dental. This is often a sign of a bacterial infection in the gums that could quickly spread to the surrounding teeth.
