What Is a Dental Emergency?

Dr's With Faceshields

A dental emergency is any oral health condition that is causing you serious discomfort, pain, or bleeding. This includes a wide variety of issues including dental trauma (knocked-out, loose, broken teeth), cuts to the gums, cheeks, and lips, serious toothaches, missing or pulled-out dental work, just to name a few. If you think your issue counts as an emergency, you’re probably right. So give us a call at (404) 261-4941 to get an emergency appointment right away.

What to Do During a Dental Emergency

Call Goldstein Garber & Salama

Before you do anything else, contact our Atlanta dental practice to tell us about your condition and get a same-day appointment. Immediate care is essential for protecting your oral health.

Recover Tooth/Dental Work (If Applicable)

If you’ve lost a tooth, pick it up by the top (crown) and rinse it with warm water. Put it in a container of cold milk to keep it moist. Pulled-out dental work can be recovered, rinsed, and placed in a plastic bag to bring with you to our office.

Treat Pain & Discomfort Until Your Appointment

Depending on your issue, you can take steps like absorbing blood with gauze or cotton balls, taking medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen, or using an ice pack to help with pain and swelling. However, make sure you come to our office as soon as you can for permanent treatment.

Why Is Immediate Care So Important?

In some cases, immediate care is required to prevent further complications and save your tooth. A knocked-out tooth, for example, needs to be splinted into place within 1-2 hours, or it will die and we will not be able to save the tooth. By getting immediate care, you can avoid complications that can cause you more pain, and end up costing you more time and money at the dentist, too. 

Immediate dental care also provides you with peace of mind and relief from your pain and discomfort. We’ll address your other oral health issue right away, get you back to your day-to-day routine.
