Emergency Dentistry Q&A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry encompasses a wide range of procedures, from root canals and extractions to administering restorations like crowns and fillings, all aimed at providing you immediate and urgent care in emergency situations.

Dental emergencies can happen suddenly, from sports injuries and car collisions to simply biting down too hard on something. A good emergency dentist has the skills to treat a variety of dental conditions, but they also have to be able to work well under pressure and in high stakes environments.

Dr. Jabaiti is proficient in providing emergency care. He provides same-day appointments and treatments for his patients at Avra Dental to get them out of pain and restore their oral health.

Is my condition an emergency?

Some examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Dislodged filling, crown, or bridge
  • Crack, chip, or fracture of your tooth
  • Severe toothache
  • Abscess
  • Cut or tear on your oral tissues, like lips, cheeks, gums, or tongue

If you’re experiencing any of these conditions, get to Avra Dental for emergency care as soon as possible. If you’re unsure about whether your condition constitutes an emergency, you can always call the office and speak with one of the friendly team members. They’ll be happy to consult with you over the phone to determine if you need to be seen immediately.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

You should seek treatment as soon as possible when you have a dental emergency. Depending on your particular condition, getting treatment in a timely manner could mean the difference between saving or losing your tooth. 

If you’ve dislodged a restoration or knocked out a tooth, be sure to bring it with you to Avra Dental. In the case of a knocked-out tooth, be careful to never touch the tooth by the roots, since it could damage them.

Instead, pick up the tooth by the crown (the part that normally sticks up out of your gum) and keep it in the side of your mouth or in a glass of milk or saliva until you can get to the clinic –– this will help to prevent the roots from drying out.

Don’t delay your treatment. Visit Avra Dental immediately for your emergency dentistry services or schedule an appointment by calling the office or using the online booking tool.
