Emergency Dental Care

Sometimes, there are dental problems that simply can’t wait. Middleton Family Dentistry is here to help patients of all ages. Not only are some oral problems persistently painful. Some problems, such as infection, can worsen and cause other health problems.

What constitutes an emergency?

Sometimes, we brush off pain as unimportant or something that can wait. While many of us lead busy lives, pain is your body’s way of signaling to you that something is wrong. In the case of a dental emergency, time is of the essence. Emergency dental care includes treatment for:

  • Swollen or infected gums
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Cavities
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • A knocked out tooth
  • Broken dentures
  • Lost crowns
  • Loose fillings

If you’re facing a dental emergency, we are here to help. Whether you are experiencing a problem that requires urgent care, or your child needs immediate attention, Middleton Family Dentistry wants to help your entire family keep happy, healthy smiles. If your tooth is broken or knocked out, here are a few steps you can take to numb the pain and minimize further damage until you can get to our office:

  1. If the tooth is knocked out, see if you can reinsert it back into the socket. Bite down on a strip of gauze or a wet tea bag and see us as soon as possible. Be careful not to swallow the tooth.
  2. If you cannot reinsert the tooth, rinse of the tooth and carefully remove any dirt or debris. Be gentle so as not to damage the tooth. Preserve the tooth in a container of milk or tooth preservative.
  3. Apply a cold compress to the site of injury to minimize pain and reduce bleeding.

If you or a family member face a dental emergency, do not hesitate to give us call.
