When You May Need to Visit an
Emergency Dentist

Do You Need to Book a Same-Day Dental Appointment?

There are numerous reasons why you might need an emergency dentist in Georgetown. When an emergency strikes and you need dental work right away, you may not be able to get into your regular dentist’s office. In this case, it would have a quality emergency dentist assist you with your severe toothache or other issue.

Common Dental Issues
Requiring an Emergency Georgetown Dentist

Among the most common emergency dental issues are the following:

  • Toothache or jaw pain that is associated with an abscessed tooth – This may require drainage, a root canal, or antibiotics. Other symptoms include fever, difficulty swallowing, a sour taste, and/or swelling
  • Broken or cracked tooth – If it’s broken, be sure to rinse your mouth with warm water and then apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
  • Knocked-out tooth/teeth – Only touch the crown; avoid the root. Attempt to put the tooth back in its socket if you can. If unable to do this, place it between your gum and cheek or into a container of milk. Put a wet, cold compress on for any bleeding.
  • Soft tissue injury – If you have severe cuts/bites on your lip or tongue, you should clean out this area with water and put a cold compress on it. If you have any injuries that need stitches, contact a medical professional. This doesn’t often require that you go to an emergency dentist.
  • Aching or bleeding gums – If you’re bleeding from the mouth, you definitely want to have this attended to immediately. You may have periodontal disease if you have frequent or excessive bleeding and aching gums. This is best handled by a dentist you have a history with or who will be your regular dentist. They will come up with a treatment plan in order to maintain healthy gums, tissue, teeth, and bones.

What Is Emergency Dentistry and Why To See an Emergency Dentist?

Most people visit the dentist about every six months to a year for a dental checkup that involves cleaning and X-rays. You would discuss ongoing dental issues and how your at-home routine has been working towards improvement of these issues. Dental emergencies occur in between these appointments and require fast action to alleviate discomfort and pain and prevent further trauma. This can be frustrating and give you a great deal of anxiety, especially if you’re someone who ordinarily gets anxious visiting the dentist. Fortunately, you can be prepared by doing your research and locating a top-notch emergency dentist in Georgetown. This way, you know you’re going to someone who will be mindful of your sensitive teeth and other particulars.
