Which Dental Injuries Require an Emergency Dentist?

Dental injuries can happen to anyone at any time of the day or night. To tell if your dental damage demands emergency treatment, follow this helpful guide.

A Cracked or Broken Tooth

The location and severity of the dental damage will tell you if you need to seek emergency dental services Downtown Detroit. If the problem is minor, then you can wait until the dentist’s normal office hours. But you’ll need an emergency dentist if you’re faced with these tooth troubles:

  • A major crack or break in your teeth
  • A large shard of your tooth is missing
  • The tooth has a sharp edge that could damage your gums or make it hard to chew
  • The tooth is extremely painful or completely numb

A Knocked-out Tooth

This can occur for a number of reasons, such as a sports injury, biting on a hard piece of food, a slip and fall, or other random accident. If your tooth is completely knocked out, then you should get to an emergency dentist Downtown Detroit immediately. Try to retrieve the lost tooth and keep it in good condition by rinsing it gently and then reinserting it in the socket or keeping it in a cup of milk until you get to the emergency dentist.

Troubling Tooth Pain

While tooth pain is never normal, it can be difficult to know whether it requires emergency dental services Downtown Detroit. If the pain is mild, you can usually wait to call your dentist until their regular hours. But if the pain is severe and causing swelling or other dental problems, you’ll need emergency treatment. But before seeking out an emergency dentist Downtown Detroit, try calling your dentist’s office because many leave openings for emergency cases or offer an emergency phone number if the office is closed.
