Take Necessary Steps During a Dental Emergency

Our dentists at McNulty and Dancausse General Dentistry have extensive experience dealing with emergencies. Once you get to our office, you will be in excellent hands. But what should you do in the meantime? Here are some practical steps you can take to care for your mouth during a dental emergency.

  • Broken Tooth/Knocked-Out Tooth – Handle the tooth very carefully. Gently rinse the tooth or pieces, and immediately place it in a container of milk or saliva. Get to our office as quickly as possible.
  • Toothache – A toothache, especially if accompanied by swelling, tenderness, or redness, is often a sign of infection within your tooth. Gently rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water, take an ibuprofen to ease the pain, and give us a call!

There is no way to prevent every emergency, but you can make those situations less likely by visiting the dentist office every six months for routine care. Exams give us a chance to discover small problems and treat them before they turn into situations that require urgent care. We can even check the strength of your dental appliances to prevent them from breaking or coming loose unexpectedly.

Call us today at 704-766-8662 for prompt assistance with dental emergencies in Charlotte. We are here to help you when you need us most! You can also call or schedule online for any non-emergency appointments.

Common Questions About Dental Emergencies

What are dental emergencies?

A variety of situations are considered dental emergencies. Broken or cracked teeth can be painful and could expose soft tissue inside your teeth. Seek help quickly if a tooth or teeth are knocked out of their sockets. Toothaches also can require emergency treatment. Loose crowns and bridges should be repaired as soon as possible. Contact us when you suffer gum, cheek, and tongue injuries, too.

Are dental emergencies covered by insurance?

This varies between insurance providers and plans. Whether your emergency care is covered or not, we will work with you to manage the cost of your treatment. Our flexible payment options include third-party financing with LendingClub or CareCredit. This can help you spread out the cost of care with monthly payments. This financing also can assist with restorative care after we address your emergency.

Should I go to the ER for dental emergencies?

Most of the time you do not need to go to the emergency room for a dental emergency. We make every effort to see patients the same day they contact us about their oral emergencies. Our dental professionals will do everything we can to end your pain and get your mouth in a place where we can repair your oral health and your smile.
