Emergency Dentistry: Quick, Compassionate Care When You Need It Most at Wareham Family Dental

Dental emergencies can happen to anyone, at any time, and require prompt and effective treatment. At Wareham Family Dental, we understand the urgency and the discomfort that comes with dental emergencies, which is why we provide quick, compassionate care to alleviate pain and address the problem as soon as possible. Here’s how we handle emergency situations and what you can do to get the help you need.

Understanding Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency is any situation that requires immediate dental care to save a tooth, stop ongoing tissue bleeding, or alleviate severe pain. Here are some common dental emergencies and how we address them:

Common Dental Emergencies

  • Toothaches: Severe toothaches can indicate issues like cavities, infections, or abscesses that need quick intervention.
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth: Accidents can lead to broken or chipped teeth, which we can often repair if treated promptly.
  • Knocked-Out Teeth: A knocked-out tooth is one of the most urgent dental emergencies. If addressed quickly, there’s a chance the tooth can be reinserted.
  • Lost Fillings or Crowns: Lost fillings or crowns can expose sensitive tooth structures, leading to pain and further damage.
  • Abscesses or Infections: These can be life-threatening if not treated promptly, as infections can spread to other parts of the body.

Immediate Steps in a Dental Emergency

  1. Contact Wareham Family Dental Immediately: The sooner you get in touch with us, the more we can do to help.
  2. Rinse Your Mouth with Warm Water: If your emergency involves trauma, rinse your mouth to clean the area and reduce the risk of infection.
  3. Apply Cold Compresses: To reduce swelling and numb pain, apply a cold compress to the affected area.
  4. Preserve Knocked-Out Teeth: If a tooth has been knocked out, try to place it back in the socket or keep it in a container of milk until you get to our office.
