Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies don’t run on a schedule, and at iSmile Dentists we understand that. When these problems arise, we will make the time for you by staying late, shifting appointments and focusing on getting you out of pain with our emergency dental care!
Dental trauma involving a lost tooth is a dental emergency! If your permanent tooth falls out of your mouth due to injury, the iSmile dentists suggests to gently clean off the root, if still in tact, and try to replace it in the socket in the appropriate orientation as soon as possible. If you can replace the tooth within 30 minutes, research shows a much higher percentage of keeping your original tooth! Other tips include storing the tooth in saliva (like in your cheek), or milk. You should not wait over two hours to be seen by a dental professional.
Dental trauma involving a broken tooth is a dental emergency. If you are experiencing pain, please come into one of our locations ASAP. We will do our absolute best to squeeze you into that day’s schedule.
Dental abscess is a dental emergency and should be treated immediately. Dental swellings could spread and become dangerous situations if not treated properly.
If your gums are spontaneously bleeding, yet you have regular cleanings and checkups, this is a dental emergency. Please visit your medical doctor immediately to check the status of your health, and let your iSmile dental office location know as soon as possible. Bleeding gums could be a symptom of more serious health conditions.
