What do emergency dentists do?

Emergency dentists are highly trained and qualified to treat dental pain and injuries requiring medical attention as quickly as possible. In a dental emergency, the right efficient dental care could help you save your natural tooth.

Am I experiencing a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies include:

  • A severely broken or cracked tooth
  • Bleeding in your mouth
  • Uncomfortable swelling in your mouth
  • Trauma to your mouth or jaw area
  • A tear or cut on your lips
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • A loose permanent tooth
  • Intense mouth or tooth pain

Even if you don’t think it’s a dental emergency — for example, if you have a slightly chipped tooth that’s not painful — you should still visit Superior Family Dental for an evaluation and to be proactive with your dental health.

Dr. Saigh can discuss your treatment options and educate you on the best ways to optimize your dental health.

What treatments can an emergency dentist provide?

At Superior Family Dental, Dr. Saigh has ample experience performing tooth extractions, treating oral abscesses, repairing broken teeth, and more. Dr. Saigh also offers restorative procedures to strengthen cracked, decayed, or weakened teeth. He can also treat impacted wisdom teeth when needed.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

It’s important you act as quickly as possible if you or your loved one is experiencing a dental emergency.

For example, if you break or chip a tooth, you’ll need to clean your mouth and your injured tooth with lukewarm water.

If you have a knocked-out tooth, it’s a serious dental emergency, and you might lose your tooth without prompt emergency dental care.

First, clean your tooth. When you’re cleaning your tooth with lukewarm water, gently hold it by the top or crown and try to avoid touching your tooth’s roots. Use gentle pressure to reposition your cleaned tooth into your empty gum socket carefully. Bite down softly on a gauze pad to hold it in place until you can visit Superior Family Dental, or you can place the tooth in a glass of milk.

If you have a swollen or bleeding lip or gum, Dr. Saigh might also suggest placing gauze on the affected area or using an ice pack to decrease swelling until you arrive at the office.

Dr. Saigh can treat any dental emergency. If you’re experiencing a dental crisis, call Superior Family Dental, walk-in, or book online.
