Emergency Dental Services Pain

Trauma Dental Emergencies:

If you have had facial trauma that has resulted in broken or knocked out teeth, here’s what you need to do.

  1. Soak Knocked out Teeth: Soak in milk, saline or contact lens solution and get yourself into a dentist ASAP. These teeth can often be put back and survive if treated quickly enough. Every minute counts.
  2. Keep All the Pieces! If have a broken tooth dental emergency and you can find the pieces, gather them up and put them in a box or jar where they won’t get crushed. Bring them with you to your appointment.
  • Best case scenario: we can cement them back.
  • Worst case scenario: we can use them as a guide to re-make your new tooth.

Having the pieces also allows us to see if the tooth was diseased and to use that information to guide treatment.

If you’re holding pieces of tooth in your hand right now, I know exactly how you feel because I’ve been there myself. My pathetic broken tooth pictures are at the bottom of the page!

  1. Facial Trauma Dental Emergency: If you have broken bones, facial bleeding or any other medical emergency. Treat the medical emergency first. Call 911 or visit your closest emergency room. When you’re stable and able to give your dentist a call, asking for guidance going forward can help smooth treatment.

Broken Tooth? This Dentist Has Been There?

If you’re holding pieces of a poor, broken tooth in your hand and wondering how anyone is gonna fix it, I feel your pain! Breaking a tooth is a miserable (and painful!) surprise! I also know it’ll be ok in the end, not just because I’m a dentist who’s repaired countless broken teeth, but because I’ve had one of those nightmare broken teeth myself.

My family and I were 800 miles from home celebrating Christmas. It was vacation but I was sitting on the bed working on my laptop. I’m sure many of you have been in the same boat. Leaning forward slightly, I never saw it coming. WHAM!! the laptop flew off my knees into my face and smacked my front teeth with force I never would have thought possible. It felt like getting hit in the mouth with a baseball bat. As I peeled the laptop out of my mouth, I felt one of my front teeth crumble into pieces. Lucky for me, I had braces at the time and the brackets took the brunt of the hit and saved my other front teeth.

My wife ran over and started frantically collecting the sad shards of broken tooth. We saved all the pieces we could find in a little container and started calling dentists. (No, I don’t do my own dental work!). Fortunately, my wife’s uncle, who is also a dentist, was available and he rebuilt my tooth with the pieces we’d saved.

Broken teeth are painful, shocking and ugly. They’re also super inconvenient. Boy did I experience that first hand.

Give us a call today! We’ll will provide  Emergency Dental Services you need and put your tooth back together and get you smiling again!

Knowledgeable and Nice People

I?d like to recommend Dr. John Bec and his entire staff for one of the best patient experiences that I?ve ever had. I was in for an emergency with an acute pain on my teeth and they treated me immediately. I was also impressed with the systematization of their processes, which I?m sure, contributed to the excellent service. 2 thumbs up for these knowledgeable and nice people!
