Why should I visit you for emergency dental care instead of going to the ER?
Although emergency department doctors are proficient in handling medical emergencies, they are not trained in dental care. They can treat whatever issue you have by assisting with the bleeding, but they cannot repair a broken tooth.
Additionally, if you go to the emergency room due to dental discomfort, they can only relieve your pain; they cannot determine the source of your pain and take steps to address it. You should go to the dentist instead because of this. Remember that even if you visit the emergency department, you will probably still need to see a dentist. Instead of going through the additional agony, effort, and expense, see us for emergency dental care.

What to do in a Dental Emergency
A dental emergency can be a very frightening experience. Whether you are dealing with a cracked tooth, a loose filling, or severe pain, it is important to know what to do to get the treatment you need as quickly as possible. Here are some tips on what to do if you find yourself in a dental emergency.
- Stay calm: This may be easier said than done, but it is important to try and stay calm to assess the situation and figure out the best course of action. If you are feeling panicked, take some deep breaths and try to focus on the task at hand.
- Call our dental office: The first thing you should do in a dental emergency is to call our dental office and explain what is happening. We will be able to give you specific instructions on what to do next and schedule an appointment for you if necessary. The sooner you are seen, the less damage there will be and the easier it will be to treat.
- Rinse your mouth: If you are dealing with a toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it out and help reduce any swelling. You can also use a cold compress on your cheek to help reduce pain and swelling from a cracked tooth or abscessed tooth.
- Take over-the-counter medication: If you are in pain, take Ibuprofen or another over-the-counter pain reliever until you can be seen in our office. Do not put aspirin directly on an abscessed tooth or gum tissue, as this can burn the tissue.
- Apply pressure: If you are bleeding from your mouth, apply firm pressure with a clean cloth or gauze pad until the bleeding stops.
Dental emergencies can be scary, but it is important to know what to do to get the treatment you need quickly and minimize damage. Remember to stay calm, call our office, rinse your mouth, take over-the-counter medication if necessary, and apply pressure if there is bleeding. Following these steps will help ensure that you promptly get the care you need.
