Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry includes the dental care you need when time is of the essence. The cosmetic dentistry team restores severely damaged or decaying teeth to prevent permanent tooth loss. They also use the latest advances in dentistry to deliver superior results.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

When in doubt about whether your situation constitutes a dental emergency, call Marvel Dental for recommendations. Common dental problems that might require same-day care include:

  • A loose permanent tooth
  • A knocked-out permanent tooth
  • A toothache
  • Tooth or mouth trauma
  • A missing or loose dental restoration
  • Soft tissue damage
  • A cracked or chipped tooth
  • Decaying or infected teeth
  • Mouth or gum swelling

Seeking prompt treatment gives the Marvel Dental team the best chance of saving your tooth from falling out or requiring extraction. 

What should I do during a dental emergency?

In the case of tooth or mouth trauma, it’s important to stay calm. 

Place a knocked-out tooth back in its socket, in some milk, or between your gums and cheek to keep it moist. If you experience a toothache or injury, keep ice on the affected area, apply pressure to stop any bleeding, and head to Marvel Dental as soon as you can.

What should I expect during an emergency dentistry appointment?

The first priority when you arrive at Marvel Dental for emergency dental care is pain control. After that, Dr. Gazu examines your teeth and gums and reviews your oral health history. She might also take dental X-rays. 

Possible treatments you might be a good candidate for include:

  • Watchful waiting
  • Fillings
  • A root canal
  • A crown or bridge
  • Dental implants
  • Soft tissue repair
  • Oral surgery

The Marvel Dental team works quickly to get you the prompt care you need. They personalize each treatment to restore your teeth or gums and reduce the risk of complications.

How can I reduce my risk of a dental emergency?

While you can’t always avoid dental emergencies, taking certain precautions greatly reduces your risk. Attend routine dental cleanings and exams with Marvel Dental every six months. Don’t chew on hard objects, and wear a mouthguard if you grind your teeth at night or play contact sports.

At the first sign of a dental emergency, call Marvel Dental or simply walk in to receive exceptional same-day emergency dentistry care. Alternatively, you can book nonemergency appointments using the online booking tool.
