Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Emergencies
What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any situation in which you are in severe pain or require immediate dental treatment to save a tooth. We will make every effort to schedule a same-day appointment for you in these cases.
Can you go to the ER for a dental emergency?
We recommend going to the ER if you've suffered a facial injury in addition to dental trauma or are experiencing uncontrollable bleeding. Once your medical issues are taken care of, you can make an appointment with your dentist.
What helps unbearable tooth pain?
Cold compresses, numbing gels, and over-the-counter pain relievers can help tooth pain temporarily, but the only long-term solution is to get the dental care you need.
Can an emergency room pull a tooth?
No, dental services are not available in emergency rooms. A hospital may be able to give you medication if you have an infection, but they cannot perform a tooth extraction.
