What To Do if You Have a Dental Emergency

At Highgrove Dental Care, we often treat dental emergencies. Dr. O’Neil and the caring staff in our St. Paul, MN dental office understand how stressful and scary dental emergencies can be! We also understand that it’s not always easy to distinguish between an emergency situation and a dental issue that can wait a day or even a few days. 

Common Dental Emergencies

There are many types of dental emergencies including:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Swelling in the jaw or face
  • A fractured tooth
  • A damaged or lost crown
  • A lost filling
  • Trauma
  • Infection
  • Fever
  • Tooth loss

If you have a significant fracture or infection, failure to seek treatment promptly may result in tooth loss or other major health issues. Also, if you have lost a tooth, quick dental care may result in replacing the tooth successfully. 

At Highgrove Dental Care, we always strive to save your teeth and bring comfort as quickly as possible.

Dental Issues That Can Sometimes Wait

Some dental issues can wait a few days, or at least until the next day:

  • Mild trauma
  • A small chip or fracture
  • Mild tooth sensitivity

Mild tooth trauma usually doesn’t require emergency dental care unless the tooth is bleeding excessively or loose. If a small chip or fracture occurs, keep the tooth clean and make an appointment as soon as possible at our St. Paul, MN dental office!

Handling a Dental Emergency in St. Paul, MN

If a dental emergency occurs when you’re on holiday or in the middle of the night, seek care in an emergency room immediately. Antibiotics and pain medications may be prescribed to keep you comfortable and help save your tooth and overall health!

Don’t Wait to See an Emergency Dentist
