We know that dental emergencies can happen at any time. That’s why the dentists at Pioneer Dental Group are always available to see you – the same day. Whether you chipped your tooth or are experiencing immense pain, we are here to help you.
Even when you least expect it, tooth pain can pop up and become so bad that it can interfere with your daily activities. When this happens, don’t panic – call us! We see emergency patients the same day, even Saturdays. If you happen to need emergency care after hours, call our office and you will be directed to Dr. Pioch’s cell phone for immediate help. We will get you in as soon as possible and provide advice to relieve pain in the meantime.
Common Emergencies We See
When you experience an emergency, it helps to know that you are not alone. Some common dental emergencies that we treat on a regular basis include:
- Knocked-out tooth
- Severe tooth pain
- Chipped, broken, or fractured teeth
- Infection or abscess
- Trauma to the mouth
- Cuts inside of the mouth
- Loose teeth
- Broken restorations
What to Do in an Emergency Situation
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, first and foremost, call our office at (503) 305-5051. Once your appointment is scheduled, we recommend that you take an over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen to help alleviate any pain you may be experiencing.
You should never touch a tooth that is injured, loose, or damaged, as this can cause more damage to the area and exacerbate the pain you are feeling.
If you are experiencing severe pain, in addition to taking medication, you can place a cold pack on your cheek to help reduce swelling. Swishing warm salty water also helps to prevent infection in the area.
If you have a tooth knocked out, it is important that you recover the tooth immediately. If there is dirt or debris all over the tooth, you can rinse it off, but do not scrub it or remove tissues attached to the tooth. You also want to avoid touching the roots. Place the tooth back into your mouth or, if that’s not possible, you can place it in a container filled with milk or saliva.
