Common Dental Emergencies


Toothaches are not as scary as other dental emergencies but can be equally as time sensitive. Toothaches can have a variety of causes, most commonly toothaches are caused by tooth decay or tooth damage. While toothaches can be a normal part of the developmental process for children, we should always take dental pain seriously. The first step is to grab some dental floss and try to remove debris from around the tooth, if this doesn't help take over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen and follow the instructions on the label. After that schedule an appointment with Dr. Zia and our team to get out of pain quickly!

Chipped Teeth & Broken Teeth

We put our teeth through excessive wear and tear every day. Even though our teeth are one of the strongest substances in our body, they are still prone to chipping. The type of repair on a chipped tooth depends on the severity of the chip. If the chip is small, we will be able to repair it with a tooth-colored filling or a bond. If the front of your tooth is chipped, we could apply a veneer to give you a flawless and natural solution. No matter the procedure, the process is quite simple and painless. If you have a chipped or broken tooth and it is not causing any pain or discomfort you can wait until regular business hours to receive care.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If you have a tooth knocked-out try to remain calm and look for the missing tooth. If you are able to find it, try to pick it up by the crown portion and rinse off the tooth. Ideally you should place the tooth in a glass of cold milk and head to the dentist immediately, there is still a good chance that we will be able to replant your tooth within an hour of the incident. In addition to replanting we also offer a variety of tooth replacement options for every budget.

Lost Filling/Crown

If you have lost a filling or crown restoration to your teeth please refrain from eating on that side of your mouth and book an appointment with Dr. Zia and our team ASAP. Your mouth will most likely feel sensitive in that area and it is important that you don't wait to receive treatment. We will do everything in our power to get you into our office as soon as possible as a lost filling or crown require immediate attention.

What to do in a dental emergency

Determine the severity of your dental emergency

The first step of any dental emergency is taking a few moments to not only calm down but to identify how severe your dental emergency is. If the person experiencing the dental emergency is in a great deal of pain or is bleeding profusely we highly recommend visiting the emergency room as time may be of the essence. If you aren't in too much pain and think you can make it into our office within the next few days, then we recommend giving our office a call as soon as possible. We have patient coordinators standing by and we always prioritize dental emergencies.

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

Unfortunately we can't know for sure what your dental emergency will cost to treat until you come into Classic Dental Care Gilbert and meet with Dr. Zia and our team, however, there are a few guidelines depending on the type of dental emergency that you are dealing with. If you are dealing with a simple cavity that is causing a toothache it will be significantly cheaper than a knocked out restoration. With that said, we are always available to work with you and your insurance plans to get you the best deal possible. If you don't have insurance we offer a variety of financing options to help you afford the treatment that you need.

To help you navigate the complicated situation that a dental emergency presents here are a few frequently asked questions and their answers.

When Should I Go To The Emergency Room?

Dental emergencies can be nerve-racking but in most cases the emergency room isn't necessary and visiting Dr. Zia is the best option. The reason is that Dr. Zia is a dedicated dentist that has handled oral health for decades. However, if you are experiencing oral bleeding lasting longer than 10 minutes, a broken jawbone, severe facial trauma or symptoms affecting your ability to breathe or swallow you should head to the emergency room immediately.

Is there anything i can do to ease the pain at home?

There are a few things you can do to help ease the pain from a dental emergency whether it be a toothache, or a knocked out tooth. Use a cold compress to alleviate swelling and temporarily numb the pain in the area, rinse your mouth with warm saltwater to prevent infection and clean out any open wounds in your mouth, and lastly take some over-the-counter pain medication to help manage the pain until you can visit Dr. Zia.

what should i keep at home in case of dental emergencies?

Being prepared can help prevent the severity of dental emergencies, and as we all know, accidents can happen. Some items to include in your emergency bag include floss, a dental mirror, temporary fillings, gauze, disposable gloves, a small container to hold a knocked-out tooth, over-the-counter pain medication and our contact information. If you experience any kind of dental emergency, Dr. Zia and our team can restore your smile painlessly.
