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.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

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!!
