Emergency Treatments at Edmond Dental Center

Our emergency dental services are focused on relieving your discomfort and protecting the health of your teeth and gums. 

At Edmond Dental Center, we can use one or more of the following treatments to meet your dental needs:

Common Dental Emergencies 

A Knocked-Out Tooth 

Having a tooth knocked out can be a frightening experience. The American Association of Endodontists state immediate action increases your dentist’s chance of saving the tooth.

When you locate the knocked-out tooth, you can carefully rinse it with water if it's dirty. Without touching the root, try to reinsert it gently in the socket. If this is not possible, you can place it in a container of milk and bring it to our dental office. 

A Chipped, Broken, or Cracked Tooth

Did you bite down on something and feel a crack or break? A chipped tooth can mar your perfect smile and may even be painful if not treated quickly. 

Severe Toothache 

Tooth pain is never a good sign because it can indicate several different issues, including decay. Some toothaches are manageable without emergency care, but bleeding or swelling require urgent attention. 

Abscess 

A dental abscess is a possible sign of infection and a serious dental emergency. An untreated infection can spread to the rest of the body and cause severe health issues, some even life-threatening. 

Lost Filling or Crown 

A lost filling or dental crown can be painful and cause dental damage or infection if not repaired or replaced by your dentist.
