  • Warm water rinses for sore teeth and gums.
  • Over the counter pain medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Ice packs applied to the outside of cheeks.
  • Dental anesthetics containing benzocaine may be used as directed on the package for pain.
  • Avoid overly hot and cold beverages and foods to reduce sensitivity.
  • Heating pads may be used for jaw pain.
  • Avoid chewing in the injured area.
  • If a broken tooth has a sharp edge, cotton can be placed over it to protect soft tissues in your mouth.

Pain-Free Emergencies

Some dental emergencies may not cause pain initially. For example, a cracked tooth may not hurt, but it may lead to nerve damage in the roots. For this reason, all of the listed conditions need immediate attention, whether or not pain is present.

We are here to help! Please contact your dentist if you have any emergency condition.

Dental Emergencies FAQs

What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation that poses an immediate threat to the health of your teeth and supporting tissues. Dental emergencies are often the result of impact to the mouth, but they also can be caused by infection. To ensure the best possible outcome, any dental emergency should be evaluated by a professional immediately.

How soon should I be seen?

You should be seen as soon as possible. Our office offers same-day appointments for most conditions during normal business hours, so call us to schedule yours today.

What to do if a tooth is knocked out?

For permanent teeth that are knocked out, rinse the tooth and put it back in the socket. If you can’t get the tooth back in the socket, place it in a container of milk, water or saliva to keep it moist. Do not touch the roots (handle the tooth by the crown) and don’t brush the tooth. Contact your general dentists IMMEDIATELY for information and emergency treatment – the sooner you get to us, the more likely your tooth can be saved!

For baby teeth that are unexpectedly knocked out, leave them out and contact the child’s dentist immediately for instructions.

What should I do if my denture breaks?

Some dentures, especially those that have been worn for many years, may need to be replaced if they are cracked or broken. The friendly, experienced team at The Denture Center is always happy to help with any denture problem, whether they need to be repaired or replaced. Call us to schedule your appointment.

What can I do if my dental crown falls off?

Keep your dental crown safe and bring it to the office. Often, we can attach the crown back into place. Sometimes, if the crown is damaged or not fitting correctly, it will need to be replaced. Call us for an appointment.

What happens if I chip a tooth?

If you chip a tooth, several things can happen:

  • Injure the tongue with sharp points
  • Break off more of the injured and compromised tooth
  • Damage a tooth with fillings

To avoid the risk of causing additional damage to your teeth, call us to schedule an appointment.
