    No one expects a dental emergency to occur, but when it does, it never hurts to be prepared. When it comes to treating emergencies that affect the oral health system, timeliness is crucial to saving oral structures and alleviating discomfort. Parker-Nickolas-Read Dental offers emergency treatment to existing and new patients. If you have a dental emergency, call our office as soon as possible so that we can prepare for your visit. Following is some helpful information on common dental emergencies and what you can do until you see a dentist. 


    If you develop a toothache, it should not be ignored. A toothache is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Inside the tooth are nerve endings and cellular material. When a tooth is damaged or diseased, internal structures can become infected. When the inside of a tooth is infected, it can produce moderate to severe discomfort since nerve endings are involved.

    When a toothache strikes, it is important to call our practice as soon as you can so that we can schedule an examination. While waiting for your appointment, you can alleviate discomfort with over the counter pain medication and cold compresses.

    Facial Trauma
    Accidental falls, car accidents and sports injuries commonly lead to facial trauma. When teeth and soft tissues like the gums are injured, precise and expedient treatment is necessary in order to restore oral function. Our practice offers care for facial trauma and will provide treatment, within our capabilities, to improve comfort and repair damage done to oral structures. Keep in mind that severe facial trauma, such as a broken jaw, requires the attention of emergency physicians and oral surgeons. If your injuries are extensive, visit your nearest hospital. 
    Broken Teeth

    Broken and chipped teeth can often be repaired if patients respond to their emergencies properly and seek professional treatment quickly. If a tooth becomes displaced, chipped or broken, try to keep its pieces with you. Do not place the pieces of a tooth in water. If possible, place the pieces of a broken tooth or a knocked out tooth in milk or Save-A-Tooth solution (available at large pharmacies). This will help keep your tooth’s structures alive while you wait for treatment. Be sure to call our practice as soon as possible after breaking a tooth so that we can make accommodations for treatment at our office.

    We recommend saving our number in your mobile phone so that you can reach us easily. Feel free to take extra business cards and store them in your desk at work or your vehicle, too. When it comes to dental emergencies, our team is here to help you with compassionate and effective care.
