How can I tell if I am experiencing a dental emergency?

It can be hard to know the difference between a dental emergency and a dental inconvenience. As a rule of thumb, seek out help immediately if you can’t do the following without severe pain or difficulty:

  • Eat and drink
  • Talk
  • Carry out daily tasks
  • Sleep

This type of pain is most common with fractured and knocked out teeth.

Can I save a knocked-out tooth?

If you act quickly, you can often save a knocked-out tooth. To give yourself the best shot at doing so, immediately seek emergency care and follow these steps as you prepare:

Pick up tooth by the crown

First, pick up the tooth by the crown, not the roots. If it’s dirty, run it under water, but don’t scrub it, as you could accidentally remove attached tissue fragments.

Store tooth

On your way to Broadmoor Dental, you need to store your tooth to keep it viable. You can do this either by sticking it back in the tooth socket or placing it in milk. In a pinch, you can also place it in a small container of water with just a touch of salt.

If you put your tooth back in your mouth, make sure it’s facing the right way, and don’t force it.

If you get to Broadmoor Dental for emergency care within 30 minutes to an hour, and you’ve kept the tooth moist, you have a good chance of saving it.

The team at Broadmoor Dental is trained and experienced in emergency dental care. They are ready to rise to the occasion for you, no matter your dental emergency. To get in immediately or within the day, call Broadmoor Dental or reach out via the online booking tool.
