Most Americans will experience a dental emergency of some sort in their lifetime. Finding a reputable emergency dentist ahead of time can dramatically reduce the stress and anxiety associated with a pressing dental issue.
Prevent Future Damage with Emergency Dental Treatments
When a dental emergency strikes, a lot of people tend to suffer silently until they can make room for an appointment. Our team wants to ensure your continued dental health, so we work with you to make sure you can be seen right away. If not treated immediately, some dental issues can turn into health issues very quickly.
Receiving swift and comprehensive dental care may save your tooth and prevent further damage to both your dental health and your physical health. Besides this, emergency dental care can provide immediate relief and even lower dental and health care costs in the future.
How Do I Know I Have a Dental Emergency?
Sometimes an accident or injury can cause damage to our teeth. It may be difficult to tell if you are experiencing a dental emergency or need a trip to the emergency room. To ensure your continued health, comfort, and safety, here are a few dental emergencies.
- Broken/Cracked/Chipped Teeth– Teeth can very commonly become chipped, cracked, or broken. Depending on the degree of damage, you may need to see your dentist without delay. If the crack is deep and you are experiencing pain, don’t wait- call your trusted dentist in Clemson, SC right away. A painful crack means sensitive areas of your tooth are exposed and vulnerable to decay and infections.
If your tooth is not painful, call your dentist as soon as possible for an appointment. They will also be better able to evaluate the damage and decide how quickly you will need to see the dentist.
- Loose/Missing Crowns or Fillings- This is a common issue. You will still want to seek treatment as soon as you can to prevent further damage to your tooth and avoid possible infections. Call the gentle and experienced staff at Carolina Oaks Dental Care and we’ll work with you to make sure you get the care you need.
While you wait to see your dentist, avoid tough, hard, or sticky foods. Very carefully, rinse your mouth with warm water. Make sure to keep your crown safe in a dry, clean place.
- A Puncture or Cut to the Face, Mouth or Tongue- Any cut or puncture you receive to your mouth or face can quickly become a dangerous emergency. Call your trusted dentist in Clemson, SC and head to the E.R. While you are getting ready to go to the emergency room, use warm water to very carefully rinse out your mouth. If your tongue is injured, gently and carefully add pressure to the area using a clean piece of gauze. Do Not Use Any Aspirin. Aspirin may decrease the blood clotting ability of the body.
- Lost/Missing Tooth or Teeth- If you have a tooth that has been knocked our dislodged accidentally, this is a serious emergency. Call your dentist right away. A missing tooth creates a dangerous empty gap in your mouth. Left untreated, the gap will lead to decay, damage to other teeth, and can even lead to serious health issues. As you wait to see your dentist, handle the tooth carefully. Do not touch the root or scrub the tooth. Delicate tissue on the root can be damaged or destroyed when you handle it. Don’t let the tooth dry out, keep it moist by placing it in a piece of clean gauze that is dampened with either your saliva or milk.

“After moving around the country the last few years I am embarrassed to admit making time for dentist appointments was not a high priority. I went in for a check up and cleaning today and they made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My cleaning was more than a bit over due and I was expecting
to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”
