What to do if you are experiencing a dental emergency
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, it is important to take action as quickly as possible to alleviate your pain and prevent further damage to your teeth and gums. Here are some steps you can take:
Contact your dentist
If you have a regular dentist, call their office to explain your situation and schedule an emergency appointment. If you do not have a regular dentist, Dr. Feldhake is an expert dentist with over 3 decades of experience helping the Glendale, AZ community.
Take over-the-counter pain medication
If you are in pain, you can take over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help alleviate your symptoms. Be sure to follow the instructions on the package and do not take more than the recommended dose.
Apply ice to the affected area
If you have swelling, you can apply ice to the affected area to help reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort. Place a towel over the ice to protect your skin, and apply the ice for 10-15 minutes at a time, several times a day.
Protect the affected tooth or area
If you have a broken or chipped tooth, try to cover the exposed area with a piece of sugarless gum or dental wax to protect it from further damage. If you have lost a filling or crown, you can try to temporarily replace it with a piece of sugarless gum or dental wax.
Seek immediate medical attention
If you are experiencing severe pain, difficulty breathing, or excessive bleeding, you should seek immediate medical attention. Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room for help. If you are not in immediate danger, call our practice for a free emergency dental exam!
By taking these steps, you can help to alleviate your pain and prevent further damage until you can see a dentist for emergency treatment.
Some of the emergency dental treatment options we offer include
If you are experiencing a toothache, we can provide medication to help alleviate the pain and determine the cause of the problem. We may also recommend a root canal to treat an infected tooth, or extract the tooth if it cannot be saved.
Repair of broken or chipped teeth
If you have a broken or chipped tooth, we can repair it using a filling, crown, or other restorative treatment. This can help to prevent further damage and restore the function and appearance of your tooth.
Lost fillings or crowns
If you have lost a filling or crown, we can provide a replacement to protect the tooth and restore its function. We can also evaluate the tooth to determine if further treatment is needed.
Emergency tooth extractions
In some cases, a tooth may need to be extracted due to advanced decay, infection, or trauma. We can perform the extraction as quickly and gently as possible to alleviate your pain and prevent further complications.
