Were you playing sports and knocked a tooth out? Are your gums swollen and bleeding? When unexpected oral discomfort strikes, our caring team provides prompt relief and the expert care you deserve.

What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can arise suddenly, causing pain and concern. Here are some examples of dental issues that require immediate attention:

  • Severe toothaches that hinder daily activities

  • Knocked-out teeth

  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth

  • Swelling and bleeding in the gums or mouth

  • Loose or displaced dental restorations, such as crowns or fillings

  • Oral infections and abscesses

What Do I Do During a Dental Emergency?

During a dental emergency, please stay calm and take appropriate actions to reduce pain and protect your oral health. If you're unsure of what to do, follow these steps:

  • Call River Valley Dental immediately, and our team will prioritize your case and schedule an urgent appointment.

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water and, if necessary, take over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate discomfort.

  • If a tooth gets knocked out, gently place it back into the socket or keep it moist between your cheek and gum until you reach our office.

  • Save any tooth fragments and rinse your mouth.

  • Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.

  • Refrain from placing aspirin directly on the tooth or gums, as it may cause further irritation.
