Types of Dental Emergencies

Common dental emergencies that we can fix include severe toothaches, lost teeth, bleeding gums, and broken dental prosthetics. We can help you address most emergency dental problems in our Vienna dental office.

Severe Tooth Pain

A dental infection, cavities, broken tooth, dental trauma or a tooth abscess can cause toothaches. Call our dental office immediately if you have sudden and/or severe tooth pain. We can also monitor patients who experience minor tooth sensitivity and pain at regular dental visits. This will ensure that your tooth pain does not cause severe oral health issues later on.

Lost or Knocked-Out Teeth

If you have just lost a tooth, try to locate the tooth, hold it by the crown, and keep it safe. Rinse the knocked-out tooth in cold water and transport it to us in a cup of cold milk to keep it moist.

We may be able to save your tooth and reattach it if we receive it promptly. However, we can also provide single dental implants, bridges, or dentures if your dentist can not reattach the tooth. These dental prosthetics improve the health, look, and function, of the teeth. They also blend in with natural teeth.

Excessive Bleeding

Some patients with gingivitis, or gum inflammation, have gums that bleed when they brush or floss their teeth. Although this is not a dental emergency, patients that experience severe bleeding need urgent dental care. Keep note of any bleeding following a dental procedure. If your mouth is bleeding for many days after your treatment, call our office.

Broken Dental Restorations

A dental professional should check damaged or broken dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. Do not attempt to fix your broken dental restoration on your own. Call our office and we will help you decide if you need a new restoration. Our experienced dental team will create a custom treatment plan that matches your specific needs.

Objects Stuck Between Teeth

To remove a stuck object, gently floss between your teeth. If you cannot remove the object, contact our dental office. We do not recommend that patients use any other methods to try to free an object between their teeth.

You can accidentally damage your gums or tooth enamel using the wrong tool. Always contact a medical professional before using drastic measures to solve a dental problem.
