Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry care used to treat conditions that require urgent attention. There are many causes for dental emergencies, from sports injuries and automobile accidents to simply biting down awkwardly on a hard piece of food.

The team at Unlimited Smiles, Moheb DMD INC is well-equipped to handle dental emergencies. They’re skilled in a variety of dental procedures and excel at working under pressure in high stakes environments. They’ll provide you with the care you need to restore your oral health and the appearance of your smile.

Is my condition a dental emergency?

There are a variety of conditions that are considered dental emergencies. Generally speaking, a dental emergency is any situation involving your oral tissues that needs urgent care. Some common dental emergencies include:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Severe toothache
  • Loose tooth
  • Cracked, chipped, fractured, or broken tooth
  • Loose or dislodged filling, crown, or bridge
  • Broken dentures or broken braces
  • Cut or tear on your lips, gums, cheeks, or tongue
  • Abscess

If you’re unsure whether your situation constitutes a dental emergency, err on the side of caution and call one of the offices at Unlimited Smiles, Moheb DMD INC. The friendly and knowledgeable team will happily consult with you over the phone to determine if you need to come in for emergency treatment.

Should I go to a dentist or a hospital?

If your emergency situation is confined to your oral tissues (teeth, gums, lips, cheeks, tongue, etc.), then you should visit an emergency dentist, like the team at Unlimited Smiles, Moheb DMD INC.

An emergency dentist is more skilled in oral conditions than an emergency room doctor and will be able to provide you with more targeted care. If you’ve knocked out a tooth, for example, an emergency room doctor might be able to stop your bleeding, but they won’t be as adept in reinserting your tooth back in its socket.

If you suffered trauma to your neck or head in addition to your dental emergency, then you should seek care at a hospital or emergency room first. An emergency dentist isn’t equipped to address head and neck trauma, and the treatment of those types of injuries needs to be prioritized to mitigate greater damage to your overall health.
