Common Dental Emergencies

The first step you should always take whenever you find yourself in the midst of a dental emergency is to call our dental office. We can walk you through first-aid steps and help situate you until you get to our dental office. We offer sedation dentistry as well, so you can feel more comfortable upon your arrival if you require immediate treatment. Below, we’ve also included some helpful tips to reduce your chance of sustaining additional oral damage until you reach your emergency dentist in Bloomingdale.

Toothaches

Toothaches that are persistent and don’t seem to go away are often signs of infections that have developed within the inner chamber of the tooth. In these cases, the only way to get rid of your pain for good is to receive treatment. Until you’re able to reach our dental office though, you can take an over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen to make you more comfortable.

Chipped/ Broken Tooth

If a piece of your tooth has broken off, try to retrieve it and bring it to your appointment with you. If the damage is irritating or scraping the inside of your lip or cheek, you can place a piece of orthodontic wax over the area.

Knocked-Out Tooth

In this situation, time is of the essence. Try to get to our dental office within an hour of the accident. Pick up your tooth, being sure to only handle it by the biting surface, and rinse it off gently under a stream of water. Store it in a sealable container of milk or salt water to keep it viable and be sure to bring it to your appointment with you.

Lost Filling/ Crown

If you’re able to retrieve your dental crown or filling, you can rinse it off and temporarily secure it back onto your tooth using a dab of denture adhesive or toothpaste. It’s important to remember that this is only a temporary solution, though. To prevent an infection from developing, you’ll need to have your restoration professionally repaired or replaced.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

While there’s no way you can completely avoid experiencing a dental emergency, there are a few precautionary measures you can take to reduce your risk of ending up in your emergency dentist’s treatment chair:

  • Visiting us every six months for a checkup and cleaning.
  • Maintaining a well-balanced diet.
  • Staying hydrated with water.
  • Avoid chewing and biting on hard items and especially chewy or sticky foods.
  • Protect your teeth from excessive grinding and clenching.
  • Get a custom-fitted mouthguard if you participate in sports.

Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

The cost of your dental emergency appointment will depend on a variety of factors, including whether you need dental sedation and what type of treatment you require. Our team at Pure Dental Spa accepts all PPO dental insurance policies, and we’re in-network with most major PPO plans. We also make sure that there are no hidden costs or surprises at the time of payment, and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have throughout the process.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is one of the most-feared treatments to receive, but the reality is that it has the ability to preserve your natural smile and keep you from needing more invasive treatments, like tooth extractions. We make sure to be gentle and ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort by administering a local anesthetic to the area before we begin. We also offer sedation dentistry as well if you’re nervous about your treatment.

Tooth Extractions

Our in-house oral surgeon is able to comfortably and seamlessly remove severely damaged or infected teeth to preserve the rest of your pearly whites. Once your procedure is complete, we can then replace your tooth with a lifelike replacement, like an implant-retained dental crown. We try to avoid removing your natural teeth whenever possible, but in cases where it will improve your oral health, this treatment may be the best option for you.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom teeth, also commonly referred to as third molars, are the last teeth that grow in between the ages of 15 and 24. Some dentists and oral surgeons will recommend removing them if they present a risk of developing oral health problems down the road, like orthodontic issues, infections, or cysts that could damage your jawbone. Our in-house oral surgeon in Bloomingdale is able to remove these teeth to help you maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime.
