Emergency Dental Services in Dundalk, MD
Learn about common dental emergencies we treat in-office as well as what you can do at home before calling our office:
Do you have chronic tooth pain? Is tooth sensitivity making it painful to bite and chew? Contact our office, and we will find the source of your tooth pain. Common causes of toothaches include worn tooth enamel, cavities, and dental injuries. At home, you can take a pain reliever and avoid eating crunchy or hard foods before your appointment. A soft diet can prevent further pain or discomfort.
If you have just lost a permanent tooth, hold it by the top or crown. Gently rinse the tooth in cool water and place it back in its socket. Then, slowly bite down on the tooth. If you cannot safely place the tooth back, keep it between your gums and cheek. Contact our dental office, and we can help you reattach your tooth or even create a restorative treatment plan.
Broken Dental Restorations
Have you just broken a tooth crown, dental bridge, or denture? Call our dental office. Do not try to place your restoration back in your mouth, as you can accidentally damage your teeth and gums. Instead, our dental team will work with you to create a new restoration that feels comfortable and looks natural.
Object Stuck Between Teeth
The best way to remove an object stuck between your teeth is to floss gently. If you cannot dislodge the object, call our office. Do not attempt other methods to remove the object because it may damage your natural teeth.
It is normal for patients with gum inflammation to experience bleeding gums when they brush or floss. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits can prevent gingivitis from turning into gum disease. However, it is abnormal for patients to experience excessive bleeding in their mouth, particularly after a dental procedure. If you have just undergone oral surgery and experience bleeding days after your procedure, place gauze or a clean cloth where you are bleeding and apply pressure. Then, contact our office immediately and we will find the cause of the bleeding.
