Emergency Dentistry Q & A
What is emergency dentistry?
Emergency dentistry is immediate care from dental professionals when time is of the essence. The experts at Omni Dental Specialty make time in their busy schedules when dental emergencies strike by offering same-day and walk-in appointments.
What are some signs I require emergency dentistry?
The following signs and symptoms can indicate a dental emergency:
- A toothache
- A cracked or chipped tooth
- Hot and cold sensitivity
- A visible hole in your tooth
- Tooth discoloration
- A deep mouth or gum laceration
- Knocked-out permanent teeth
- Broken or missing fillings, crowns, or bridges
- Broken dentures
The earlier you seek treatment from your dental provider, the better the chance they can save a damaged tooth. If you’re unsure if you require emergency dental care, call Omni Dental Specialty, where their friendly team is happy to assist you.
What should I do during a dental emergency?
Stay calm during a dental emergency and head to Omni Dental Specialty as soon as possible. If you or your child has a knocked-out tooth, keep the tooth moist by placing it back in its socket, in milk, or between your gums and cheek, and bring it with you to your appointment.
If you experience a laceration, apply pressure to the area to stop the bleeding. Apply ice as needed to reduce swelling and pain. For a toothache or cracked tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the area.
Which emergency dentistry services are available?
Dr. Keihani and his team offer a wide array of emergency dentistry services, including:
Soft tissue repair
If you have a laceration, Dr. Keihani and his team can repair the injury with stitches or other treatments to optimize healing.
Fillings and crowns
If you experience tooth decay or a chipped or cracked tooth, the Omni Dental Specialty team offers tooth-colored fillings and crowns to restore it and protect your tooth from future damage.
If you have a severely decayed or infected tooth, a root canal can restore it to prevent tooth loss or the need for extraction. Dr. Keihani first numbs the area, cleans the inside of your tooth, fills it with special dental materials, and covers it with a filling or crown.
If you saved a knocked-out permanent tooth, Dr. Keihani does his best to reimplant it into its socket to save the tooth.
If you have severe tooth decay or an infection requiring extraction, Dr. Keihani can perform the procedure and replace the missing tooth with a dental implant or bridge.
When a dental emergency strikes, trust the experts at Omni Dental Specialty with your care. Book an appointment over the phone or online, or simply walk in.
