Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is dental care for unexpected issues that can't wait for regular appointments. This type of dentistry helps with many different problems, including:

  • Toothache
  • Broken teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Severe swelling or inflammation
  • Broken or lost fillings
  • Broken or lost crowns
  • Severe tooth bleeding

At Central Avenue Dental, the experienced specialists can handle all types of dental emergencies, so don't wait to contact the office when you need help.

Do toothaches always require emergency dentistry?

Some toothaches may not require emergency dentistry. If you have a mild toothache, brushing and careful flossing to dislodge anything stuck in your teeth may solve the problem. A saltwater rinse can also soothe any mild discomfort.

But, some toothaches are far more serious. Abscesses are infections that usually occur around the tooth root. An abscess can cause not only serious tooth pain but also jaw swelling, bad breath, gum swelling, and fever. 

If you have severe tooth pain, particularly if it happens along with other symptoms, you need emergency dentistry right away.

What does emergency dentistry treatment involve?

Emergency dentistry treatment at Central Avenue Dental depends on the circumstances. The empathetic dental care providers prioritize symptom relief, which can include pain relievers and antibiotics, before expertly repairing damage and restoring your teeth.

If you have a damaged tooth, whether it's the natural tooth surface or a restoration like a crown, your specialist can repair the damage immediately in most cases. That may involve a new restoration.

In some cases, dental emergencies occur because of a serious problem that builds up over time, like an infection that you didn't know about. In this situation, you may need root canal therapy, a procedure in which your dental specialist removes the diseased part of the tooth to save the remaining healthy tooth.  

Although Central Avenue Dental always strives to save your natural teeth, there are some situations where it's impossible. But, you need not live without teeth thanks to innovative tooth replacement options like dental implants, All-on-4® implant dentures, and traditional dentures. 

Dental emergencies are inconvenient, but Central Avenue Dental makes sure that they're not scary or stressful. When you have any kind of urgent dental care needs, phone the office nearest you or use the online appointment maker to arrange an emergency dentistry visit as soon as possible.
