Signs You May Have A Dental Emergency

In some cases, it may be obvious you have a dental emergency. Because it could be a sign of a larger issue, dental pain usually means you have a dental emergency.

Here are some of the most common emergencies we see at our Houston, TX dental office:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Broken or severely cracked teeth
  • Severe chips
  • Toothaches
  • Damaged or broken dental restorations
  • Trauma

What To Do In A Dental Emergency

You can’t prevent accidents from happening, but you can have a plan in place if they do. Here are a few general tips and some specific examples of what to do in dental emergencies:

  • Stop any bleeding as soon as possible
  • Invest in a first aid kit
  • Wear a custom athletic mouthguard during physical activities
  • If a tooth gets knocked out or broken, store it in a small container of saliva or milk and bring it with you to our office
  • Use over-the-counter medications to relieve pain
  • Use a cold compress to reduce swelling

Dental Sedation Options

Emergencies are already stressful. But if you are also uncomfortable with the dentist, we can help relieve your dental anxiety with a variety of dental sedation options.
