Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is centered around promptly treating dental injuries and pain that warrant medical attention as quickly as possible. Some dental emergencies involve saving knocked-out or broken teeth, while others involve treating severe toothache or a mouth wound.

If you or your loved one has a dental emergency, prompt dental care could help save your natural tooth. 

Dentistry at Kennesaw Point provides myriad effective emergency dentistry treatments, such as tooth extractions, crowns, root canals, fillings, and bridges.

How can I tell if it’s a dental emergency?

You should visit Dentistry at Kennesaw Point if you’re concerned about a moderate to severe mouth injury. If you take immediate action, you can receive treatment as quickly as possible. 

Examples of dental emergencies include: 

  • A loose permanent tooth
  • Intense mouth or tooth pain
  • Bleeding in your mouth
  • Trauma to your face or mouth area
  • Uncomfortable swelling in your mouth, gums, or tongue
  • A severely broken or cracked tooth
  • A tear or cut on your lips
  • Knocked-out teeth

If your tooth is slightly chipped and it isn’t painful, you might not have a dental emergency, but you should still visit Dentistry at Kennesaw for an evaluation and treatment.

Dr. Kalantari and her team take time to answer your questions, address your concerns, and discuss your treatment options and how you can best take care of and protect your teeth.

What should I do with a knocked-out tooth?

A knocked-out tooth is a serious dental emergency and without the right efficient emergency dental care, you could lose your tooth.

First you’ll need to clean your mouth and your injured tooth, especially if it’s fallen out and gotten dirty. Rinse your tooth and mouth with lukewarm water and try to avoid touching the roots of your tooth.

Don’t pick your tooth up from the root. Gently hold your tooth by the top or crown when you’re cleaning it. Carefully use light pressure to gently reposition your cleaned tooth into your empty gum socket.

To hold your tooth in place until you can visit Dentistry at Kennesaw Point, softly bite down on a gauze pad. You should call Dentistry at Kennesaw Point as soon as you can or have someone call to explain your dental emergency situation and get helpful medical advice.

If you can’t place your tooth back into the socket, place your tooth in a small cup of milk to help preserve it until you get to the dental office.

From extractions and root canals to fillings and crowns, Dentistry at Kennesaw Point has solutions. Call your nearest office or schedule online today.
