What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can range from mildly uncomfortable to severely painful situations that require immediate attention. Here are some common scenarios that qualify as dental emergencies:

  • Severe Toothache: Persistent, unbearable tooth pain that doesn't subside with over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • Knocked-out Tooth: If you've had a tooth knocked out due to an accident, it's crucial to seek immediate dental care for the best chance of saving the tooth.
  • Chipped or Broken Tooth: A chipped or fractured tooth can lead to infection and further damage if not treated promptly.
  • Abscess or Swelling: Facial swelling, especially if accompanied by fever, can be a sign of a dental abscess, a serious infection requiring immediate treatment.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: When a filling or dental crown falls out, it can expose sensitive dental tissue, causing pain and discomfort.
  • Severe Bleeding: Uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth after an injury or dental procedure requires immediate attention.
  • Loose or Dislodged Tooth: Teeth that are loose or out of alignment due to an injury should be evaluated right away.
  • Pain or Injury to the Gums, Lips, or Tongue: Any severe injuries to the soft tissues inside the mouth should be examined by a dentist.

How SkyeView Dental Can Help

Dental Exams

When you arrive with a dental emergency, our skilled dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth. She will identify the root cause of your discomfort and develop a personalized treatment plan to address it.

Pain Relief

We understand that dental pain can be excruciating. Our top priority is to alleviate your pain quickly and effectively. Whether it's through medication, local anesthesia, or other methods, we'll make sure you're comfortable during your visit.

Abscess Treatment

Dental abscesses are serious infections that can lead to severe pain and complications. Our dental team is experienced in diagnosing and treating abscesses promptly, preventing the infection from spreading.

Chipped Tooth Repair

A chipped or broken tooth can affect your smile and cause discomfort. We offer cosmetic dentistry services, including tooth-colored fillings and dental bonding, to restore the appearance and function of your damaged tooth.


In cases where a tooth is extensively damaged or weakened, a dental crown may be the best solution. Crowns provide support and protection, allowing you to maintain your natural tooth.

Root Canals

When tooth decay reaches the pulp of your tooth, it can be extremely painful. Our dentist performs root canals to remove the infected tissue, relieve your pain, and save your tooth.

Tooth Extractions

In some situations, a tooth extraction may be the best course of action. Our dentist is experienced in performing extractions with minimal discomfort to the patient.

What to Do During a Dental Emergency

While you await your visit to SkyeView Dental, there are some steps you can take to manage a dental emergency:

  • Toothache: Rinse your mouth with warm water and floss gently to remove any debris. Avoid placing aspirin directly on the tooth, as it can damage the gums.
  • Knocked-out Tooth: Handle the tooth by the crown (not the root), rinse it gently with water, and try to reinsert it into the socket if possible. If not, keep it moist in milk or saliva and seek immediate care.
  • Chipped or Broken Tooth: Rinse your mouth with warm water and save any broken pieces. Use a cold compress to reduce swelling.

  • Abscess or Swelling: Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater and use a cold compress to alleviate swelling. Avoid applying heat to the area.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: If you still have the filling or crown, you can use over-the-counter dental cement or temporary dental adhesive to temporarily reattach it. Avoid using glue or household items.
  • Loose or Dislodged Tooth: Gently try to reposition the tooth with light pressure and bite down to hold it in place. Seek immediate care.
  • Severe Bleeding: Apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth or gauze to stop the bleeding. If bleeding persists, seek immediate attention.

Remember, in any dental emergency, time is of the essence. Don't hesitate to call SkyeView Dental for prompt, expert care.

Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifies as a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation involving your oral health that requires immediate attention to relieve pain, prevent further damage, or save a tooth. Common examples include severe toothaches, knocked-out teeth, chipped or broken teeth, and abscesses.

When should I seek emergency dental care?

You should seek emergency dental care if you experience severe or persistent pain, bleeding, swelling, or have an injury to your mouth or teeth. It's crucial to act promptly to prevent complications.

What should I do if I knock out a tooth?

If you knock out a tooth, gently rinse it with water, avoid touching the root, and try to reinsert it into the socket if possible. If that's not feasible, store the tooth in milk or saliva and see a dentist immediately. Time is crucial for saving a knocked-out tooth.

Can I go to the emergency room for dental emergencies?

While the emergency room can temporarily relieve severe dental pain or infections, they are not equipped to provide long-term dental care. It's best to contact an emergency dentist for specialized dental treatment.

How can I relieve toothache pain at home?

To temporarily relieve toothache pain at home, rinse your mouth with warm saltwater, floss gently to remove debris, and take over-the-counter pain relievers as directed. However, these are just temporary measures; you should still see a dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

What is a dental abscess, and how is it treated?

A dental abscess is a painful infection that can form at the root of a tooth or in the gum tissue. Treatment typically involves draining the abscess, possibly a root canal, and antibiotics to clear the infection. It's essential to see a dentist promptly, as abscesses can lead to serious complications.

Can a chipped or broken tooth be repaired?

Yes, a chipped or broken tooth can often be repaired. The treatment depends on the extent of the damage but may include dental bonding, dental crowns, or veneers to restore the tooth's appearance and function.

Do I need a root canal for a severe toothache?

A root canal may be necessary if a severe toothache is caused by infection or damage to the pulp inside the tooth. During a root canal, the infected tissue is removed, and the tooth is sealed to prevent further infection. This procedure can save the tooth.

How much does emergency dental care cost?

The cost of emergency dental care varies depending on the specific treatment needed, the severity of the issue, and your dental insurance coverage. Our team will provide an estimate of treatment costs and provide a breakdown of all your payment options, including financing.

How can I prevent dental emergencies?

While some emergencies are unavoidable, you can reduce the risk by practicing good oral hygiene, wearing protective gear during sports or physical activities, avoiding chewing on hard objects, and attending regular dental check-ups to catch issues early.
