Dealing with a dental emergency can be frustrating, but at Coniglio Family Dentistry, we want to make the process easier. One of the most effective ways we can show you we care is to assist you with your emergency with our compassionate and efficient dental team. Our goal is to relieve your pain as soon as possible!
We know you didn’t plan for an emergency, but we can schedule an appointment for you—often the same day! Our comfort dentistry policy can also help you feel more relaxed during a time that otherwise may be stressful.
Do I Have a Dental Emergency?
While some dental emergencies are obvious, other issues may be harder to determine. Dental emergencies can include:
- Severe tooth pain.
- A broken or chipped tooth.
- A tooth that has been knocked out.
- Gum or internal mouth injuries.
- A tooth with swelling or infection.
- An object stuck in between your teeth.
When in doubt, call a reliable member of our staff. However, if you have a broken jaw or severe bleeding, visit an emergency room right away!
What Should I Do in the Meantime?
If a piece of your tooth has broken off, keep the piece in some milk and bring it with you to your appointment. When an adult tooth has been knocked out, you can place the tooth back into the socket by handling the crown of the tooth (try not to touch the tooth root). Otherwise, you can also keep this tooth in a glass of milk.
For any swelling or pain, you can often use over-the-counter pain relievers or a cold compress. However, you may want to check with one of our staff before taking a pain reliever, and avoid ibuprofen until we can examine your tooth.
