FAQs for Dental Emergencies

First, if you can, keep any broken pieces of the tooth to bring to our dentist. Contact or visit our dental emergency office as soon as possible. Before you arrive, rinse your mouth with warm water. Place gauze on the affected area if it begins to bleed. To prevent swelling, press a cold compress on the outside of your mouth.
Should one of your permanent teeth suddenly fall out or get knocked out, take the tooth by the crown (the top part of the tooth that you normally see; avoid touching the tooth root). Rinse off the tooth gently with water. Do not use a toothbrush or toothpaste to scrub the tooth clean.

If possible, place the tooth back into its former position as soon as you can. Get in touch with our emergency oral surgeon immediately and keep the tooth well moisturized on your way to our El Paso office. Either hold the tooth in place or transport it with you in a glass of milk.
If a filling falls out, you don’t want bacteria to get inside and infect your tooth. Clean the affected area gently before leaving to meet with our emergency dentist. He will replace the filling at no extra charge to you.

In a similar way, losing a crown can expose a sensitive tooth to bacteria and substances that may irritate the area. Bring your crown to our dental clinic when possible so that we can reattach the crown. If the crown is damaged or missing, we will place a temporary crown on your tooth or dental implant before creating and attaching a permanent crown.
When the patient is in serious danger, call 911 and visit your local emergency room as soon as possible. However, if the issue is the dental emergency doesn’t put the patient at serious risk of other health conditions, visiting a 24-hour emergency dentist is generally the better option.

The ER may be equipped to help you handle pain, but they will not have the experience or in-depth knowledge to handle dental emergencies like our emergency oral surgeon. He can provide the same quick care you need, but offer more specialized treatment for your oral health needs.
