Emergency Dentistry Q & A

When would I need emergency dentistry?

A dental emergency can describe various circumstances where you need expert dentistry services right away. You generally need emergency care from Madison Dental Partners if you experience any of the following:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Lost crowns
  • Lost fillings
  • Tooth infections
  • Tooth abscess
  • Severe pain in your gums or teeth

In other cases, you may need same-day service for the following:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Gum therapy
  • Wisdom tooth removal
  • Surgical extractions

When you experience a dental emergency, the team at Madison Dental Partners is here to provide you with expedient relief. If needed, the staff can alleviate any pain or discomfort related to your dental emergency with nitrous oxide sedation.

I have a knocked-out tooth — now what?

Handle the tooth as little as possible. If you can’t place it in the socket, rinse it off and store it in a container of saliva or milk until you arrive at Madison Dental Partners. Apply a cold, wet compress to the open socket to help manage any bleeding.

What type of care is involved in emergency dentistry?

The team at Madison Dental Partners always allocates time in their schedule so they can treat dental emergencies the same day. Your dentist tailors your treatment to your type of injury or dental issue. They can quickly replace lost fillings and crowns, treat infections, and perform extractions to remove damaged or unhealthy teeth. 

If your wisdom teeth are impacted or growing in at an angle, this can lead to crowding, infection, and pain. Your dentist can discuss whether you need some or all of your wisdom teeth removed in an emergency dentistry consultation.

In cases where you’ve lost a tooth, Madison Dental Partners offers restorative dentistry services, such as dental implants, bridges, and crowns, to replace missing teeth with natural-looking ones.

How do I prevent dental emergencies?

Although it’s impossible to avoid all accidents, taking certain precautions can lessen your risk. Consider these steps:

  • Wear a mouthguard during sports
  • Avoid chewing on ice or hard candy
  • Don’t use your teeth to open items

Also, schedule regular visits to Madison Dental Partners and practice good oral hygiene to prevent tooth decay, which can turn into a dental emergency.
