EMERGENCY DENTIST SERVICES

​At Amara Dental in Easton, PA, we emphasizethe importance of managing your dental mergency as soon as possible.

Being ready and prepared to handle your dental emergency means insuring the best outcome.

Traumatic Dental Injuries

A knocked-out permanent tooth requires immediate action and attention. There are ways to increase the chances that the tooth can be saved: Pick up the tooth without touching the root, gently rinse it with water and put it back in its socket. Use mild pressure to hold it in place as you make your way (quickly) to the dental office or emergency room. If the tooth can't be immediately planted, tuck it between the patient's cheek and gum, or carry it in a container of cold milk. If the tooth has been moved or loosened, treatment needs to take place within six hours. With uncontrollable bleeding, make sure to immediately go to the ER.

It's the less severe dental injuries that happen more frequently, believe it or not. Chipped teeth are actually the most common traumatic dental injury. It might be possible to reattach chipped pieces, so if this happens to you, make an appointment at our new Wall, NJ office to be seen as possible and make sure to bring the pieces with you!

Tooth Pain

Acute or persistent tooth pain is always a sign for an urgent visit to the dental office. Typically, the most common cause of dental pain is tooth decay. You may need a root canal treatment to relieve the pain of infection and keep the tooth from having to be removed. In some instances, pain may be caused by a loose filling or sensitive tooth.

Gum Emergencies

Injuries and infections involving the soft tissues of the mouth can also require emergency treatment. These include accidental bites, falls, sports injuries and scalding liquids – all of which can damage the tissues of the gums, tongue or cheek lining. Here is what to do when any injury to the soft tissues of the mouth should occur: rinse with diluted salt water, clear any visible debris, and control bleeding by pressing a clean, damp material on the area for 10-15 minutes. If bleeding continues, go to the emergency room immediately.

Paying careful attention to foreign bodies that may become loged below the gum line is important, too. These can develop into painful and potentially serious abscesses (canker sore or ulcer). Using dental floss or a toothpick to remove  the foreign body may do the trick, but if not, make a dental appointment so the area does not become further damaged or infected. Abcesses caused by infection require immediate dental attention.
