Common Dental Emergencies

A few of the most common dental emergencies include:

  • Persistent Toothaches- A toothache that does not go away within a few days can indicate a serious cavity. Infected teeth are also a common problem that can cause symptoms like a toothache, discoloration, and swelling near the affected site.
  • Knocked-out Teeth- If your tooth is knocked-out due to an accident like a slip-and-fall or a hard hit in a contact sport, it is an extremely urgent dental emergency. It is crucial that you see us within 1-2 hours to save a knocked-out tooth.
  • Bleeding Gums- This symptom also indicates a potential dental emergency. Oral trauma can cause cuts and lacerations to your gums. If your gums are bleeding for no apparent reason, you may have a serious case of gum disease, which counts as an urgent dental emergency.
  • Damaged Teeth- If your tooth is impacted or severely damaged, it may be better to remove it and replace it with a dental bridge or dental implant.

What to Do in a Dental Emergency

First, call the team at Dulles Life Smiles to get help right away. Next, recover your tooth and put it in a small container of cold milk to keep the root alive until your appointment. Pulled-out dental work (like a filling or crown) can be put in a plastic bag. Remember to bring your tooth or dental work with you to your appointment!
 
If you have time before your appointment, you can treat bleeding with clean gauze or cotton balls, and take medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Icing your cheek near the affected area may also help with your pain.

Above all, though, make sure you see the team at Dulles Life Smiles as soon as you can. Don't delay, or you’ll be at risk of developing further complications.
