Our team is here to provide you with the utmost quality of care during a frightening time.

What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency may be something as simple as a small chip in a tooth to a severe dental infection like a facial cellulitis. If you are concerned you may have a tooth problem or you are experiencing pain when eating and biting, it is best to call your dentist at Eureka Ridge Dentistry so get properly treated.

Dental emergencies may include:

  • Chipped or fractured teeth
  • Dental infection
  • Dislodged teeth
  • Tooth loss
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Post-operative pain or infection
  • Broken dental appliances

When should you seek emergency care?

In dentistry, it is always better to be seen as soon as you suspect there is a problem. If you have a filling that fell out, leaving it out for a long period can lead to tooth decay or gum problems that require more than a filling.

A tooth that is avulsed (tooth loss) from an injury requires immediate dental care to hopefully save the tooth. Remember to place an avulsed tooth in saline or milk solution to keep it hydrated and call our office as soon as the injury occurs so it can be properly reinserted.

While a dental emergency can occur at any time, you should remember to call Eureka Ridge Dentistry for an urgent appointment so that we can tend to any dental needs. If you are unable to reach us, you should always call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room for dental care.
