Dental Emergencies Q&A

What are dental emergencies?

Dental emergencies are those that require immediate dental treatment to repair your teeth or gums, extract teeth, or save a severely damaged or knocked-out permanent tooth. The White Hill Dental specialists are here for you and your family whenever you need dental care. They offer same-day and walk-in visits to treat patients of all ages when time is of the essence.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies often include:

  • Tooth pain
  • Cracked tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Knocked-out permanent tooth
  • Loose permanent tooth 
  • Bleeding
  • Broken or missing crown or bridge
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Chipped tooth
  • Gum swelling
  • Pus within the gums

The White Hill Dental providers are here for you when you need them the most. If you’re unsure if you need same-day dental care, a friendly specialist happily answers your questions over the phone.

They make time during the day for patients who unexpectedly encounter dental emergencies and always accommodate them. 

What should I do during dental emergencies?

It’s important to know what to do during dental emergencies. For instance, you should place pressure on any bleeding, ice painful or swollen areas of your mouth, and attempt to save a knocked-out tooth, broken tooth, or fallen-out tooth restoration. Keep knocked-out teeth moist in saliva or milk and bring them with you to the White Hill Dental office.

What happens during same-day dental emergency visits?

Head to White Hill Dental at the first sign of a dental emergency. Your provider offers pain relief, if needed, and examines your teeth, gums, and mouth. They review your symptoms, discuss oral health history, and take dental X-rays if necessary.

Your dentist offers crowns and bridges, dental surgery, white composite fillings, root canals, soft tissue repair, and other same-day dental treatments. They can clean your teeth and mouth, remove tooth decay or infection, and offer tooth extractions when needed.

Your White Hill Dental provider tailors each treatment to save a damaged or knocked-out tooth and follows up with you to see how you’re doing afterward. They have your best interest at heart.

Stay calm during dental emergencies and call the White Hill Dental office. You can also schedule a visit online or simply walk in today.
