What is an emergency dentist?

An emergency dentist can address urgent oral health issues and injuries promptly and effectively. A dental emergency can happen at any time and is often time-sensitive. Getting to an emergency dentist in time could save your natural tooth. 

The team at Century Park Dental Care reserves time slots for dental emergencies so they’re always prepared to help. 

They can help you find relief for severe pain or other symptoms of a dental emergency, and they work hard to give you the best possible outcome. Even if they’re unable to save your tooth, they find a long-term solution. 

If you experience a dental emergency, call Century Park Dental Care right away. If a partial or whole tooth falls out as a result of the emergency, you should keep the tooth either in your mouth or in a glass of milk for safekeeping until you can get to the office. 

When should I see an emergency dentist?

An emergency dentist can address many injuries and diseases that need immediate and effective care. The emergency dentists at Century Park Dental Care can help you handle:

  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A severely cracked or broken tooth
  • Severe tooth or jaw pain
  • Excessive gum bleeding from periodontal disease
  • Soft tissue injuries in your mouth
  • Objects stuck in your mouth

It’s usually easy to distinguish a dental emergency from something that can wait because it might involve severe bleeding, unbearable pain, or tooth loss or breakage.

Certain circumstances might seem like dental emergencies, but you can wait and book an appointment to address them. They include broken dental appliances like crowns or veneers, as well as lost fillings. 

How can I prevent future dental emergencies?

Not every injury is predictable or preventable, and a dental emergency can still happen no matter how many precautions you take. You can reduce your chances of experiencing a dental emergency by:

  • Brushing and flossing diligently
  • Attending regular dental exams and cleanings
  • Using a mouthguard for contact sports
  • Avoiding biting down on solid objects like pencils or hard candies
  • Avoiding using your teeth to rip or tear

Century Park Dental Care can help you find other ways to protect your teeth and the soft tissues in your mouth that are more specific to your lifestyle.
