Protect Your Smile With Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies can occur at any time and often require immediate attention to prevent further complications. At Family Dental Care in Mesa, our experienced team is here to provide prompt and compassionate emergency dental care, ensuring the best possible outcome for your oral health.

What are some of the most common dental emergencies?

Toothaches: Severe tooth pain can be a sign of an infection, decay, or an abscess that requires urgent dental care.

Broken or Chipped Teeth: Accidents and injuries can result in broken or chipped teeth, which may expose the tooth's nerves and cause severe pain.

Knocked-Out Tooth: A knocked-out tooth can often be saved if treated promptly by a dental professional.

Lost Fillings or Crowns: A lost filling or crown leaves the tooth vulnerable to further damage and decay.

Dental Abscesses: An abscess is a painful infection that can spread and lead to serious health complications if left untreated.

How should dental emergencies be cared for until our team sees you?

Toothaches: Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater and use over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate discomfort.

Broken or Chipped Teeth: Rinse your mouth gently, apply a cold compress to the affected area, and avoid chewing on the damaged tooth.

Knocked-Out Tooth: Rinse the tooth gently without touching the root, place it back in its socket if possible, or store it in milk or a saline solution until you reach our office.

Lost Fillings or Crowns: Apply dental cement or toothpaste to the affected area and bring the crown or filling with you to our office.

Dental Abscesses: Rinse with warm salt water to alleviate pain and swelling, but do not attempt to drain the abscess yourself.

Why is it vital to seek out emergency care for dental issues?

Receiving timely emergency dental care can prevent further damage, alleviate pain, and minimize the risk of complications. Neglecting dental emergencies can lead to tooth loss, the spread of infection, and even serious health issues.
