Emergency Dentistry in Quakertown, PA
A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from a dental professional. At our office, we understand that you cannot always plan when you will need our care. If you experience a dental emergency, we encourage you to contact us immediately. Our team will schedule you to meet with our dentist as soon as possible so you can receive emergency dentistry services in our Quakertown, PA office.
We are happy to care for several types of dental emergencies, including:
There can be many causes of toothaches or tooth pain. A dental infection, tooth injury, or simple tooth sensitivity are common causes of tooth pain. If you are unsure of the cause of your pain, contact our office. We will perform a thorough examination to find the cause of your pain and recommend a solution. You can also take over-the-counter pain medication before your appointment.
Lost or Broken Dental Restoration
We can provide replacement if you lose or break a dental filling, dental bridge, denture, or tooth crown. Contact our office for a temporary restoration. Do not try to place the restoration back in your mouth, as you can damage your teeth or gums. You can also bring the restoration to our office; we will help you create a new restoration as needed.
Soft Tissue Damage
Damage to the mouth’s soft tissues, including the tongue, cheeks, lips, and gums, can be painful. At home, rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash or saltwater—place gauze against the injured area. Then, call our office, and we will assess your injury.
Rinse your mouth with warm water if you have just broken a tooth. You can retrieve any pieces that fell off your tooth and transport them to our office in a dry container. We often suggest dental bonding, a filling, or a crown depending on the extent of your damage.
Have you just lost a permanent tooth? If you can locate the tooth, hold it by its top or crown, and rinse it in cool water. You can try to place the tooth back in its socket by gently biting it down. Call us if you cannot reattach your tooth, and we will see if we can reattach it in our office. We recommend a dental implant if we cannot reattach the tooth. Implants can replace the missing tooth at the root and secure a dental crown.
If you suffer from one of these conditions or another type of dental emergency, please get in touch with our office. Our team will also be able to provide instructions on how to take care of your smile until you can come to our office to meet with us. If you have experienced trauma to the head or neck, we recommend that you visit the emergency room or your general physician before coming to us, even if your smile is also damaged.
