ICO Dental is available for same-day dental emergency appointments for new and existing patients. If you need immediate dental treatment near you, please call us immediately. Dental emergencies include several tooth-related or gum-related issues. Among the most urgent are broken jaws, bitten tongues or lips, and broken, chipped, or cracked teeth.
Severe toothaches can also be dental emergencies, especially when they occur suddenly. If you are experiencing an unexplained severe toothache, you should call ICO Dental right away. In the meantime, you can apply a cold compress or use over-the-counter medication to ease the pain.
Prolonged or unexplained gum bleeding is another reason to seek immediate dental care. Bleeding during brushing or flossing may be an issue but isn’t an emergency. It’s only an emergency if it seems to happen for no reason or if the bleeding does not stop.
A knocked-out tooth is another situation where immediate dental care is necessary for the best chance of saving the tooth. Take care to avoid touching the lost tooth’s root and gently rinse the tooth. Then, attempt to reinsert your tooth into the socket. If that’s not possible, keeping it in a small container of milk is the next best option. Reach out to our team right away in this scenario.
Crown damage, missing fillings, and other issues with dental prostheses should also be dealt with as quickly as possible. These devices protect sensitive and fragile tissue from further decay, and broken or missing crowns and fillings leave that tissue exposed. You’ll need at least a temporary replacement right away to prevent any issues.
