The 3 Most Common Dental Emergencies We Treat at Our St. Paul

Let’s face it; dental emergencies are stressful. When patients experience dental emergencies in St. Paul, we are here to help guide you through the process, taking the uncertainty out of the future of your smile.

Here are the three most common dental emergencies we treat here at Highgrove Dental Care.

A Toothache or Pain in the Mouth

Sometimes, the source of a toothache is easy to identify, especially if you bite into something and suddenly – crunch – you break a tooth. Other times, pain creeps in slowly and gradually becomes more dramatic. Either way, you should give us a call right away. A toothache indicates a problem, and the faster we treat it, the better chance we have of saving your tooth.

A Broken Tooth or Restoration

Speaking of broken teeth; they sometimes happen. Broken teeth are common for people who grind their teeth at night. Tiny fractures weaken teeth and biting into something can break the fracture. Your tooth may or may not be painful, depending on how close the break is to the nerve. We often repair broken teeth with beautiful, porcelain crowns.

Dental restorations are designed to last a long time, but they do have limits. A broken crown or filling may make your tooth sensitive. We can replace your restoration and restore your comfort.

A Knocked-Out Tooth

Kids are more likely to have a knocked-out tooth, but adults who play sports also put their teeth at risk. Auto accidents are another way that the teeth can become dislodged.

A knocked-out tooth can be put back in place by your dentist. The key is to rinse the tooth and try to gently reinsert it into the gums. If you can’t, place in a small container of milk or your own saliva and bring it with you to your appointment.

Dental emergencies in St. Paul do not have to cause anxiety. Let our compassionate and gentle team help. Call our St. Paul, MN emergency dental office today if you've got questions, concerns, or a dental emergency.
