Dental Emergencies in St. James

The following are some common dental emergencies and advice on what you can do.

  • Knocked Out Teeth

    If the knocked-out tooth is an adult (or permanent) tooth, we may be able to put it back in, but you must act quickly. If the tooth is put back in place or placed in a container of cold milk within 10 minutes, it has a fair chance of taking root again. After 2 hours, the chances are poor.

    Call our office as soon as possible. The sooner you get here after knocking out your tooth, the more likely it is that your dentist will be able to save it.

  • Chipped or Broken Teeth

    It is possible for a broken tooth to be saved. Call our office and explain what happened, and we will see you as soon as possible. If it’s a small break, we may use a filling to fix the tooth. If the break is serious, a root canal may be necessary and your tooth may also need a crown (also called a cap).

  • Lost Dental Fillings

    Put a piece of softened sugarless chewing gum in the spot where the filling was lost, as this will protect the area for a short period of time. Call our office to set up an appointment right away.

  • Severe Toothaches

    Contact us and explain your symptoms. We will do our best to see you the same day, or as soon as possible. For discomfort, take an over-the-counter pain medicine that works for you. Hold an ice pack against your face at the spot of the sore tooth. Do not put a heating pad, a hot water bottle, or any other source of heat on your jaw, as heat will likely make things worse.

    Rinse three times a day with warm salt water to reduce pain and swelling as much as possible.

    Continue to take any prescribed antibiotics, even if all signs and symptoms of infection are gone. To help protect the tooth, avoid eating sticky foods (especially gum), hard foods, and if possible, chew only on the opposite side of your mouth. It’s important to continue to brush and floss as usual.
