At Brunswick Smiles Family Dentistry, we understand that emergencies can occur at any given time on any given day. In most cases, Brunswick Smiles Family Dentistry can provide emergency walk-in or same-day appointments. On occasion, next-day appointments are necessary. We guarantee to find you the earliest available appointment time to care for your emergency dental needs.
Emergency dental services provide relief from severe pain or swelling in or around the mouth and provide treatment for any new facial impact or trauma, which may have affected teeth. The emergency dental treatment could provide short and long-term relief, dependent on the severity of the damage.
Here are some suggestions on how to handle certain oral discomforts that often require emergency dental services.
-Toothache: When dealing with a toothache, see your emergency dentist for moderate and severe toothaches. Call to schedule an appointment with your dentist for mild pain or discomfort.
-Broken teeth: If you have a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth, see your dentist immediately. It is important to keep the tooth moist in the patient’s mouth if there is no danger of them swallowing it or in a glass of milk. It is best to avoid using tap water to keep the tooth moist as the chlorine found in tap water could damage the roots of teeth. Avoid grabbing the tooth by its roots, which could cause unnecessary damage
-Swelling: If your jaw or gums are sore, swollen, or you believe that they might be broken, apply ice or a cold compress to the area. Go to an emergency dentist immediately.
-Soft tissue injury: If you have cut or bitten your tongue, cheeks, or lip and find that the bleeding is excessive or does not stop, apply pressure using a clean cloth and then contact an emergency dentist. Stitches may be administered under our dental emergency services for larger or deeper wounds.
