What to do if you have a dental emergency
First, make sure there is no life-threatening risk to yourself or the person experiencing the dental emergency beyond the teeth. If there is, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
If your dental emergency is not life-threatening, you should call us ASAP to make an emergency appointment to see a dentist. Our team at All Brite Dental will treat your dental emergency with care and expertise.
In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to care for your dental emergency:
- If there is any bleeding, make sure you stop the bleeding with gauze or a handkerchief of some kind.
- If you have lost a tooth, try to put the tooth back into the socket. If you are unsuccessful in doing so, make sure to keep it moist at all times by placing it in milk, a tooth preservation product, or in between your gums and cheek.
- For a toothache or cracked tooth, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and place an ice pack on your cheek to numb the area.
- If you have a gum or pulpal abscess, take anti-inflammatory medication and rinse your mouth with saltwater.
- With pericoronitis, rinse your mouth with salt water and make sure that there is no food trapped under the gum flap. Anti-inflammatory medication and topical pain relievers will also help.

FAQs - Emergency Dentist
We can help patients to stay comfortable and live a life that is pain-free. If you visit All Brite Dental experiencing pain, we will identify what is creating the issue and the treatment options available for dealing with it. Often, we will also prescribe medication to help with the pain. This can prevent you from feeling discomfort while your tooth is being treated and at home. You may also want to apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area in order to reduce or prevent swelling.
Find the tooth and rinse it gently in cool water. (Do not scrub or clean it with soap — use only water!) If possible, replace the tooth in the socket immediately and hold it there with clean gauze or a wash cloth. If you can't put the tooth back in the socket, place the tooth in a clean container with cold milk, saliva or water. Get to the Emergency Dentist immediately. The faster you act, the better your chances of saving the tooth.
Contact your emergency dental office as soon as possible. The baby tooth should not be replanted because of the potential for subsequent damage to the developing permanent tooth.
Clear & metal braces have similar overall costs. However, clear braces are often slightly more expensive due to the use of higher quality materials that blend in with your natural teeth color.
Call our office immediately. Over-the-counter children's pain medication, dosed according to your child's weight and age, might ease the symptoms. You may apply a cold compress or ice wrapped in a cloth to the face in the area of the pain, but do not put heat or aspirin on the sore area.
