Emergency Dentistry: All You Need to Know

Emergency Dentistry is the critical and urgent treatment to save the teeth and restore oral health after an accident or other dental emergency. Such emergencies, if left untreated, may lead to tooth loss or worse. Robinson Family Dentistry is ready and just a call away from treating your emergency dentistry condition.

When Would You Need to Rush to an Emergency Dentist?

A dental emergency can occur any time and anywhere, and you will need immediate attention. These emergencies include:

  • Knocked-out teeth: It is easier for us to treat and save your teeth if we take immediate action. If the tooth is still in the socket, do not pull it. If it is completely knocked out, rinse the tooth with water and wash off the dirt. Follow the emergency guidance we provide.
  • Soft tissue lacerations: Injuries to soft tissues such as gums, lips, cheeks, tongue, and the palate could cause bleeding. Use salt water to rinse your mouth carefully, press an ice pack on your cheek and come immediately to Robinson Family Dentistry for your treatment.
  • Broken teeth or chipped teeth: If your teeth fracture extends to the root, or you have severe tooth sensitivity, see us at Robinson Family Dentistry immediately. We are always ready to help.
  • Abscess: Abscess is a dental emergency because it may spread to the rest of the body if not treated. Contact our dentist if you notice any hurtful pimples on the gum.
  • Tooth decay: Due to the bacterial action, your tooth may get damaged, and cavities develop. We at Robinson Family Dentistry can repair your teeth.
  • Gum disease: This serious gum infection could damage the gum and your jawbone if not treated early.
  • Missing or loose dental restoration: Both permanent and temporary restorations can loosen or fall out during accidents. We can provide emergency dental procedures at Robinson Family Dentistry to repair or replace them.
  • Serious tooth infection: You need to seek immediate treatment for severe tooth infection; left untreated may lead to other problems.

How to Protect Your Teeth?

  • Use a mouthguard
  • Watch what and how you eat
  • Don't chew on anything bad for your teeth
