Dental Emergency FAQs

  • Does a damaged or knocked-out baby tooth warrant a dental emergency?
    • Yes! Baby teeth are not permanent but if they experience trauma or are knocked out before their time, it could cause problems for the permanent tooth that is underneath. The dentist will not reinsert the baby tooth, but they will ensure that the underlying tooth is free from damage or injury.
  • What is the best way to sleep when I have tooth pain?
    • If you can’t get into the dentist office on the same day, they will give you instructions on how to deal with the pain when you call in. Here are some examples:
      1. Try to keep your head elevated
      2. Avoid drinking or eating things that are cold and high in sugar or acid.
      3. Take an over-the-counter painkiller
      4. Use a cold compress to help number the pain.
  • Is it ok to use a toothpick to try and get something out of my teeth?
    • If something is stuck in between your teeth and you’re having difficulty removing it or it’s causing pain, call your dentist right away and wait for them to remove it. For generally removing food between your teeth, most dentists recommend using floss. A toothpick has sharp edges and can easily cause damage to the soft tissue in your mouth.
  • Do crack or chipped teeth heal on their own?
    • Unfortunately, your teeth will not heal on their own. This is because there are no blood vessels in your enamel. If your tooth becomes broken in any way, you need to make a dentist appointment right away. Not only does it take away from your smile, but it exposes your tooth to bacteria, which can cause infection and lead to more severe damage.
