As with most emergency situations, knowing just a little bit about what to do before they occur can help you make the best decisions when they occur. No emergency happens at a convenient or scheduled time, but knowing how to handle a dental emergency can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth.

The most important thing to understand is what constitutes as a dental emergency. The following all require the quick intervention of your dentist:

  • A cracked or broken tooth
  • A damaged dental bridge or crown
  • A knocked out tooth
  • A lost filling
  • An infection or abscess in the mouth
  • An injured jaw
  • Dental bleeding
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Swelling in the mouth
  • Tooth pain

It is often these situations that get dental patients into a great deal of trouble because many people choose to ignore these symptoms. However, it is very important to understand that none of the above listed issues will resolve themselves on their own. By ignoring them or putting off a visit to the dentist to address them, you are setting yourself up for more invasive and more expensive treatment.

A knocked out tooth is certainly a dental emergency, and it is imperative that you receive immediate intervention. Not all knocked out teeth can be saved, but you will have a much greater chance for success if you follow these steps:

  • Find the tooth!
  • Gently try to place the tooth back into its socket.
  • If unsuccessful at placing the tooth, keep it moist in your own saliva or milk.
  • Get to your dentist as quickly as possible.

At Crabapple Dental, we are here for all of your dental needs. If a dental emergency arises, please contact us immediately.

Kim B.

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!

Linda S.

Dr. Roberts and her entire staff are very friendly and professional. Dr. Roberts has a great "bedside manner" and clearly explains what she needs to and why, in a very calming manner. She is a perfectionist in her work, and I can honestly say I've never experienced pain during several crown procedures. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Skyler S.

Every time I walk into Dr. Roberts' office, I feel at home. The establishment is clean and welcoming, and the staff is so friendly! I live in Atlanta, and I still make the trip up to Alpharetta just to go back to Crabapple Dental because I appreciate everything they do so much. They always have the most up to date technology and tools that makes my mouth feel more clean each time I go. Definitely recommend!
