Frequently Asked Dental Emergency Questions

What is considered a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies can be very serious, even life-threatening. It’s important to be aware of what constitutes a dental emergency, especially if you have recently had dental work done, or have other health conditions that put you at risk. Here are some situations that would definitely require emergency dentistry:


Knocked-out tooth

Fractured or Cracked tooth

Soft Tissue Injury

Abscess or Infection

How to deal with a broken tooth?

If one or more of your teeth has become completely dislodged, preservation should be your number one priority. You will want to keep the tooth as protected and intact as possible, and that means making sure it doesn’t dry out.


There are a few ways you can do this: place the missing tooth in milk or an ADA-approved, tooth preservation material (e.g. Save-A-Tooth), keep it in your mouth between your cheek and gums, or gently place it back in the socket, taking care to not disturb the exposed root.

How to react to a cracked tooth or a severe toothache?

Cracked teeth should be immediately cleaned with warm water, then covered with a cold compress (ice packs and wet washcloths work well) while you are en route to the clinic. Patients experiencing severe toothache are advised to brush and floss the affected tooth as best as they can.

My tooth got knocked out in an accident, what should I do?

When one of your teeth gets knocked out, whether it’s in the midst of a fight or you’re in a traumatic accident (vehicle or sports), there are methods of saving the tooth (or teeth). In fact, sometimes your actual tooth can be re-implanted (though not always). This implant has to happen within minutes if you hope to keep that tooth for the rest of your life.


Find the tooth, but don’t pick it up by the root. Rinse with water or milk to remove any dirt (but do not keep it in the liquid).


You can replace the tooth before getting to the dentist to keep it as healthy as possible before your dentist can work on it. However, never replace a child’s baby tooth.

What can I do if my crown cracked?

A broken crown qualifies as a dental emergency, so the first thing you should do after noticing something is wrong is immediately call your dentist. Aside from potentially being painful, the risk of developing a bacterial infection goes up the longer you wait to have the crown repaired.
