November 29, 2017

Man holding ice pack on cheekLike any other kind of emergency, dental emergencies can sneak up on you. If you or a member of your family in Spring Valley, Las Vegas, or other nearby communities experience a dental emergency, you can call the caring team at Advent Dental for all of your emergency dentistry needs. We offer same day emergency appointments whenever possible, and we’ll always walk you through first aid and pain management over the phone.

When to Call an Emergency Dentist

If you believe your oral health situation requires urgent treatment, you’re probably right. You know better than anyone else what your dental situation is and whether or not you need treatment right away. Some of the dental emergencies we see most often include:

  • Knocked out teeth or dental restorations
  • Protruding or partially knocked out teeth
  • Broken teeth or dental restorations
  • Severe toothache or dental sensitivity
  • Infection or inflammation in the oral soft tissues
  • Soft tissue lacerations

Caring for Your Smile at Home

If you are in the midst of a dental emergency, our team will be happy to walk you through first aid over the phone. Some of the basic steps you can take include:

  • Clean the damaged area using cool water, so you can see the damage clearly
  • Use gentle pressure or cold compresses to slow bleeding
  • Use ice packs to prevent swelling and inflammation and relieve pain
  • Take over the counter pain relievers as necessary, but don’t place aspirin directly onto the damaged tooth

Preventing Emergencies

You won’t always be able to avoid dental emergencies, but there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk for an emergency, including:

  • Keep up your two times a day teeth brushing and daily flossing
  • Visit Advent Dental twice a year for regular checkups
  • Use mouthguards during athletic events and to protect teeth during nighttime teeth grinding and clenching
  • Avoid habits like using teeth to open packages or chewing on ice and fingernails
