Emergency Dentist Q & A

Glad Dental P.C.

What are some of the most common dental emergencies?

The most common dental emergencies can include:

  • Trauma or injury to the teeth, face, or mouth
  • Infection or swelling of the gums, mouth, or face
  • Severe, unmanageable discomfort or pain in these areas

If any of these situations arise, seek dental assistance as soon as possible. Dr. Yakobashvili has the experience and training to handle many different kinds of dental emergencies. He offers a safe and comfortable environment offering the necessary diagnostic tools, anesthetics, and treatments for all of your dental needs or emergencies.

What if I have a dental injury?

If you have a dental emergency, such as an injury, stay calm and focused. You should stop any bleeding that is present and protect the injured tooth or area of the mouth. It is not recommended to treat yourself, even with aspirin or ibuprofen, as they are anticoagulants and can cause excessive bleeding. Dr. Yakobashvili recommends taking acetaminophen to help alleviate pain instead. Contact the office or your regular dentist as soon as possible.

What else is considered a dental emergency?

Most dental problems can wait until a standard appointment to get treatment. But there are some other orthodontic situations that should be considered an emergency and you should call Dr. Yakobashvili immediately.

  • A poking wire – If a wire pokes out from your braces
  • Sores or allergic reactions - sudden and serious reactions, like swelling, inflammation or difficulty swallowing or eating
  • Severe pain - Commonly caused by debris below the gum line, a lost filling, a broken, or cracked tooth or an infection. The pain can be alleviated by applying ice 10-20 minutes each hour.

If you think you’re having a dental emergency, contact Glad Dental P.C. as soon as possible to receive immediate medical attention and prevent further damage.
