What Is Emergency Dentistry?

Dental work can't always wait for an appointment scheduled days or weeks away. Dental pain can significantly interfere with your quality of life, leading to daytime discomfort and lost sleep.

If you have a dental emergency, it is crucial to know where to turn. Our practice offers emergency appointments.

Why Choose Advanced Dentistry of Stockbridge?

Our family-friendly practice welcomes all patients. We use high-tech equipment and techniques to enhance patient care. We can deal with your dental emergency as quickly as possible and restore your ability to chew, relax, and sleep.

Procedures Offered


Call us for an appointment if your tooth is damaged in an injury or accident. We will evaluate whether we can save it or whether it needs extraction.

Weakened teeth may also break and fall apart, leading to jagged edges and a tooth that must come out. We can address your problem quickly and return you to your normal activities.

Root Canals

Teeth that need root canals sometimes become painful very suddenly. They may have swelling or pus around the gums, and they may cause extreme pain when biting or chewing. If you suffer from disruptive dental pain, call our office as soon as possible to receive an appointment.

Below are instructions for handling minor dental emergencies.

In the case of a toothache...

Gently clean the area around the tooth by rinsing the mouth with warm water and gently flossing to remove any particles that may be lodged in the tissue around the tooth. If the pain continues, or if the area around the affected tooth is warm, please call our office to schedule an appointment.

If a lip, gum, cheek, or tongue gets cut...

Apply ice to help reduce swelling and apply pressure with a clean cloth or sterile gauze to stop any bleeding. If the bleeding continues, call your physician or visit your local emergency room.

If a baby tooth gets knocked out...

Please call our office to schedule an appointment.

If a permanent tooth gets knocked out...

Call our office right away and take these steps.

  1. Do not touch the tooth root, but hold the tooth by the crown and gently rinse the tooth with water.
  2. Place the tooth back into the socket as quickly as possible and bite down on clean gauze to hold it in place.
  3. If the tooth cannot be placed in the socket, put the tooth in a small container of milk or saliva and bring it with you to your appointment.
If a tooth gets chipped or broken...

Gently rinse the area with lukewarm water and place a cold compress on the face to reduce swelling. If you can locate the piece of the broken tooth, place the piece in milk, and bring it with you to the office. If more than half of the tooth is broken off, please call us immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions About Emergency Dentistry

What constitutes a dental emergency?

A dental problem that needs immediate treatment is an emergency. Emergency dental procedures alleviate pain, stop bleeding, and sometimes save compromised teeth.

Other conditions that are urgent dental emergencies include:

  • Mouth lacerations
  • Severe toothache
  • Loose tooth
  • Dental abscess
  • Broken tooth
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • A large chip or crack in a tooth
What should I do if I knock out a tooth?
If your tooth is completely knocked out but still intact, save it inside your cheek or in a glass of milk and call us immediately. The sooner we see you, the more likely we will be able to reset your tooth.
What are signs that my toothache is an emergency?
Any toothache that disturbs your normal routine needs prompt care. If it is a dull ache, it can wait for a regular appointment. If you are not sure whether your pain is an emergency, we can help evaluate your problem.
Should it be considered an emergency if I lose a filling or crown?
If this happens, you may need a prompt appointment, but it is generally not considered an urgent emergency. Call our office for advice.
Can you extract my tooth in an emergency?
Yes, if we determine that your tooth needs to come out. Often, the dentist can save a damaged tooth with a root canal, crown, or other treatment.
