Dental Emergency FAQs

  • If a baby tooth is knocked out, is that a dental emergency?
    • Yes. Baby teeth are designed to come out at some point, but this needs to be a natural occurrence. Until then, they need to stay in place. Having a baby tooth knocked out before its time can cause damage to the tooth underneath. The dentist will not reinsert the baby tooth, but they will ensure that nothing has happened to the underlying tooth.
  • How should I sleep when I have tooth pain?
    • Sometimes you can’t get into the dentist office on the same day and getting a good night’s sleep while in pain can be difficult. When you call Williams Dental, we will give you instructions on how to care for your tooth pain overnight. In case you forget, here is a list of some things you should do:
      1.  Keep your head elevated
      2.  Avoid food or drinks that are cold, have a lot of sugar, or are acidic.
      3.  Take a pain reliever before you go to bed
      4. Put a cold compress on your face to help numb the pain
  • Can a chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth heal on its own?
    • The short answer is, NO. You need to seek treatment right away if your tooth becomes chipped, cracked, or fractured. Not only does it take away from your beautiful smile, but it can also expose the tooth to bacteria. Waiting a day or two if you’re not experiencing pain is fine, but you should definitely get this issue fixed sooner rather than later.
  • Should I use a toothpick to help get out food that is stuck?
    • Most dentists do not recommend using a toothpick for getting out stuck food. Not only can the sharp edges damage the soft tissues in your mouth, you could also be pushing the food further in between your teeth. Use floss to get food out, but if it is extremely stuck and won’t come out, talk to a dentist right away!
