What is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on treating dental problems that require immediate attention. It involves providing urgent dental care for people who are in pain or discomfort due to toothaches, lost teeth, broken teeth, or other dental emergencies. Emergency dentists, like Dr. Corie Rowe, are highly trained professionals who can quickly and effectively diagnose and treat patients with urgent dental concerns.

Our experienced and caring team of professionals is here to help when you need it most, providing you with the best possible care to help alleviate your dental issues. 

Toothache: A toothache can be a painful and uncomfortable experience. Fortunately, Comfort Family Dental has the solution. Dr. Rowe will assess the problem and provide the best solution to alleviate the pain. He will take the necessary steps to determine the underlying cause of the toothache and provide the necessary treatments to restore comfort and health. In the meantime, you can take over-the-counter pain relief to help with the discomfort until you can get to your appointment. You should also avoid eating anything too hot or cold and keep the affected area clean to prevent further irritation.

Lost Filling or Lost Crown: If you find yourself in a situation where you have lost a filling or crown, it is crucial to seek emergency dental care. Comfort Family Dental is a great place to start. Until you can get to your appointment, it is essential to avoid any food or drink that is either hot or cold and not chew on that side of your mouth. Avoiding those will help prevent further damage to your teeth and gums. Additionally, you should take over-the-counter pain relievers if you are experiencing any discomfort. Following these steps until you can get to your emergency appointment will help ensure your dental health and well-being.

Chipped or Broken Tooth: If you have a chipped or broken tooth, it is vital to take immediate action to minimize the potential damage. To reduce swelling, you should rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the affected area. Avoid eating or drinking anything too hot or cold, and avoid touching the area with your tongue or fingers. You can take an over-the-counter pain reliever if there is any pain or discomfort. Above all, staying calm and seeking the help of Dr. Rowe and the Comfort Family Dental team is essential. Make an emergency dental appointment to have the tooth repaired as soon as possible. Comfort Family Dental is available to provide you with the best care possible.

Knocked-Out Tooth: If you have a knocked-out tooth, it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately. To clean the area, gently rinse your mouth with warm water until you can get to your emergency dental appointment at Comfort Family Dental. Then, place the tooth back in the socket and hold it in place with a clean gauze pad. If you cannot put the tooth back in its place, store it in a container with milk or water to keep it moist until you can get to the dentist. Do not try to scrub or brush the tooth, as this can damage the root. Avoid eating hard or crunchy foods, and try not to touch the tooth.

Our team at Comfort Family Dental is here to help you with all your emergency dentistry needs. We strive to provide our patients with the best care possible during times of distress and to ensure that your smile remains healthy and beautiful.
