Dental Emergency: Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do in the event of a dental emergency?
Call Austin Dental Care as soon as possible. Seeking immediate treatment is the most effective choice because many dental concerns worsen over time. However, if you are experiencing a dire emergency dial 911.
What do I do if my tooth gets knocked out?
If possible, retrieve the lost tooth, lightly rinse the tooth and place it in a cup of saliva or milk to transport it to us. A tooth that is preserved like this may be able to be replaced within one hour of loss. Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures are restorations that can be used to replace the missing tooth if it cannot be rescued soon enough.
What do I do if I feel severe tooth pain?
If you are feeling tooth pain, you can take an over the counter pain reliever to improve your symptoms. In the most severe cases, your pain may be caused by tooth decay or an abscess. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Wainwright if pain persists and apply a cold compress if you are experiencing swelling.
What do I do if an object is stuck between my teeth?
Do not use any sharp objects to try to remove the object as it may damage the tooth or gums. Gently floss between the teeth to see if this can remove the object. Contact our office if you can not remove the object.
What do I do if my dental crown or filling breaks or falls out?
Contact Austin Dental Care. We will be able to construct and fit you with a new dental restoration. Do not attempt to reglue your restoration or reach your crown or filling.
What do I do if my denture or dental bridge breaks?
If possible, schedule an appointment at our office and bring the broken appliance with you. Dr. Wainwright will help you to determine the best treatment plan for replacing the appliance.
