Emergency Dentistry FAQs

What should I do if I lose a tooth?

In the event that a tooth is broken, knocked out or lost, remain calm and try to locate the tooth. If you are able to find the tooth, place it in milk, or a cup of your own saliva. Be careful to only handle the tooth by the crown, and do not disrupt any root material that may still be attached. Contact our Emerald Isle, NC dentist office immediately. You may rinse your mouth with warm water and use clean gauze to stop any bleeding.

Is a broken crown or filling a dental emergency?

It may be. Depending on how the crown of filling breaks, you may experience some discomfort or hyper sensitivity. NEVER attempt to replace the filling or crown yourself. Contact our Emerald Isle, NC dentist office right away.

I am experiencing intense pain in my tooth, what should I do?

If you are experiencing a sharp or shooting pain in your tooth or gums, contact our Emerald Isle dentist office right away. Tooth pain is often a sign of an infection or advanced tooth decay. In rare cases, you may have an abscess that should be treated as soon as possible.
