What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is often a shocking and painful experience that can happen to anyone. The difference between a simple dental problem and an emergency depends on the urgency of the issue. Any dental situation that requires immediate assistance or treatment may be considered a dental emergency.

Is A Broken Tooth A Dental Emergency?

Yes, a broken tooth is a type of dental emergency. A chipped or fractured tooth leaves the sensitive inner pulp and nerves exposed, which can be both painful and risky for your oral health. You could develop an infection or cause damage to other teeth, gums, or your tongue if the broken tooth is sharp or jagged.

If you experience a broken tooth, do your best to remove any pieces of your tooth and gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water. Then, call our team to see which Absolute Dental location can see you right away.

Is A Loose Dental Implant An Emergency?

A loose or damaged dental implant could be a dental emergency because it could have a significant impact on your dental health. Your dental implant is a restoration that improves functionality and prevents bone loss in the jaw. However, a loose dental implant could be a sign of a gum infection or not enough support in the jawbone for the implant. Contact our team as soon as possible if you notice any issues with your dental implant.

What Dental Emergency Services Do We Offer In North Las Vegas?

Our Absolute Dental offices in North Las Vegas can help with different types of dental emergencies, including:

1. Severe Tooth Pain

A serious toothache is an obvious sign that something’s not quite right in your mouth. You may have an infection or other dental damage that could potentially get worse without treatment. Our team of emergency dentists will get to work to relieve the pain and figure out what is causing the toothache. Our treatment plans address the underlying issue and help patients get their dental health back on track.

2. Broken Or Cracked Teeth

A tooth can chip, fracture, or break if you experience a sudden impact or are chewing something particularly hard. When this happens, you run the risk of developing a painful infection that could eventually lead to more serious issues, including sepsis, if left untreated. Even if you think it’s not a big deal, you should see your dentist right away if you have a broken tooth.

3. Knocked-Out Tooth

A knocked-out tooth is a dental emergency you should never ignore. When a tooth completely detaches from the socket, there is very limited time to save the tooth. If this happens to you, here’s what the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends to do:

  • Avoid handling the tooth by the roots
  • If possible, carefully place the tooth back in the socket
  • If you can’t get it in the socket, you can place the tooth between your cheek and gums to keep it moist until you get help
  • You can also preserve the tooth in milk
  • See your dentist as soon as possible

4. Broken Braces Or Dental Restorations

If you have broken orthodontic gear or a damaged dental restoration, you should contact your dentist right away for treatment. Broken braces, including loose brackets or wires, can be dangerous if they are not repaired. Also, a loose or broken dental restoration could leave vulnerable teeth exposed to germs and infection. Our North Las Vegas offices can help with:

  • Loose or cracked dental crowns
  • Detached dental crowns
  • Loose or cracked dental fillings
  • Fillings that have fallen out of the tooth
  • Damaged metal or ceramic braces

5. Objects Stuck Between Teeth

Sometimes food or other small objects will become lodged between the teeth or stuck in the gums. If left there, they could cause severe irritation, infections, or even tooth shifting. Our special dental instruments and tools can safely remove the object before it becomes a bigger problem.
