Emergency Dental Care Q & A

What is emergency dental care?

Emergency dental care focuses on helping people with urgent dental problems that can’t wait for a routine appointment.

Dental emergencies could happen anywhere at any time and can often cause extreme pain. Preva Dental provides emergency dental care services that address pain and provide immediate treatment for time-sensitive problems. They also can perform any additional work that you might need on your teeth during normal office hours.

What problems does emergency dental care cover?

Some of the most frequent dental emergencies the Preva Dental team sees include:

Severe toothache

Emergency dental care can help if you develop a toothache that is causing you severe distress. Symptoms like extreme pain when you bite down on your gums looking dark or discolored might call for an emergency root canal procedure. 

Knocked out tooth

If one of your teeth becomes loose and falls out after an accident or other trauma, carefully place it back in the hole or between your cheek and your teeth. You can also put the tooth into some milk or use an approved tooth preservation product to keep it alive.

Cracked or broken teeth

Cracked or broken teeth can be very painful if any part of the root becomes exposed. Damaged teeth are also vulnerable to infection.

Jaw injuries

Injuries to your jaw, like fractures, can cause extreme pain, swelling, and problems opening and closing your mouth.


If you have a lot of blood coming from your mouth, it’s important to get help from your emergency dentist. A small amount of blood from your gums when you brush is a sign of gum disease, but it’s not an emergency. In that case, you should make a routine appointment before it gets worse.

An object stuck in your teeth

If you have something trapped in your teeth that brushing and flossing can’t dislodge, your emergency dentist can extract it safely.

Broken crowns and dentures

If you have a crown, bridge, or dentures and they break, or if a filling falls out, contact Preva Dental as soon as possible. They can replace the lost artificial tooth or filling to protect your teeth and gums.
