What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry refers to a wide range of services for people seeking immediate care. Most issues that qualify for emergency dentistry require treatment within 24 hours to protect their teeth, jaw, and gums. 

At JP Dental Care, the trusted team of professionals specialize in providing emergency dentistry. It’s essential to visit the office as soon as possible to prevent problems from worsening. 

What does emergency dentistry treat?

It’s important to understand the reasons for emergency dental care to ensure you receive the proper treatment for your needs in a timely manner. Issues like a minor toothache or a lost dental filling typically don’t require immediate assistance and can be treated during regular office hours.

Alternatively, you may need emergency dentistry if you experience:

  • Severe tooth or mouth pain
  • Injury to your mouth
  • Knocked out teeth
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Swelling in your mouth, gums, or tongue

If you experience bleeding from your gums, inside of your cheeks, or from your tongue, you most likely need emergency dentistry. Contact JP Dental Care as soon as possible if you’re experiencing these issues.

How do I know if I need emergency dentistry?

If you’re concerned that you have a dental emergency, contact JP Dental Care to determine if you need immediate assistance or if the issue can wait for a scheduled appointment. 

If your issue can wait, a team member at JP Dental Care shares remedies to help ease the discomfort of your dental problem. That may include using a cold compress to reduce swelling or rinsing your mouth with warm salt water to prevent infection.

If you have lost a tooth, crown, or bridge, place it in a secure area where it will not get thrown away. When you visit JP Dental Care, the team can secure your missing tooth or dental appliance back in place. 

Don't wait to schedule an appointment if you think you have a dental emergency. Call or reach out to JP Dental Care online as soon as possible to speak with a team member and receive the help you need.
