Dental Emergencies Q&A

What is involved in emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is reserved for cases in which you have an accident or severe pain that can’t wait for a future appointment. Newport Dental is here for you and your family members when you need them so you can get the care necessary to preserve your oral health.

When might I need emergency dentistry?

The team at Newport Dental commonly sees the following dental emergencies:

  • Tooth infections
  • Intense toothache
  • Severe tooth decay
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Loose or knocked-out permanent tooth
  • Lost, broken, or missing tooth restorations
  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Pus within your gum line
  • Gum or facial swelling

Call the staff if you’re unsure if your dental problem qualifies as a dental emergency. They can guide you in scheduling the appropriate care. 

How should I care for myself during a dental emergency?

The immediate action you take for a dental emergency depends on the nature of the problem. Stay calm and ice painful or swollen areas of your teeth, gums, or mouth. If you notice any bleeding, place pressure on the affected area to stop the bleeding.

If you experience a knocked-out or broken tooth, save it, place it in saliva or milk, and bring it with you to the Newport Dental office. If you have a damaged tooth restoration, such as a crown or dental implant, save it and bring it to your emergency dentistry visit. 

What can I expect during emergency dentistry visits?

When you arrive at Newport Dental for emergency dentistry care, you’ll be evaluated as soon as possible. Your dentist examines your gums and teeth, reviews your dental health history, and takes dental X-rays if necessary.

Your dentist will offer the appropriate care if you need immediate pain relief. They’ll also customize an emergency dentistry treatment plan that may include dental fillings, dental bonding, a root canal, crowns, bridges, or tooth extraction.

Before restoring a damaged or infected tooth, they remove any tooth decay. They also offer gum disease treatments.
