Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is dental care that’s geared towards urgent situations. Whether you’ve been in a sports accident or a car crash, get to The Wilhelm Dental Group as soon as you can. 

They know that emergencies happen, and they’re there to take care of their dental family. They offer last-minute and walk-in appointments for emergency situations, so that you can get out of pain and back in good health.

The sooner you get care, the more likely it is the team of emergency dentists will be able to provide you with effective treatment. Getting to the office within 30 minutes of your emergency might mean the difference between saving or losing your tooth.

Do I need emergency care?

Some of the reasons that you might need urgent dental care include:

  • Loose tooth or crown
  • Missing crown or filling
  • Pain in your tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Tear or laceration on your lips
  • Swelling or uncontrollable bleeding from your gums, tongue, or cheeks

Whether your dental emergency has resulted from a sudden injury or has just slowly developed to a tipping point, The Wilhelm Dental Group can help.

What emergency services do you offer?

Emergency treatments depend on your condition.

If you’ve knocked out a tooth, try to find it and rinse it under warm water, being careful to hold it by the crown (the top part) and not touch the roots. Place it in a cup of milk and bring it with you to The Wilhelm Dental Group. In many situations, their team of emergency dentists can save your tooth. If they can’t, they can replace the tooth with a bridge, dental implants, or dentures.

If you’ve broken, cracked, or chipped a tooth, the team at The Wilhelm Dental Group might be able to save it with a simple crown or dental veneers. A crown or veneers can protect your tooth from further damage while keeping your smile looking healthy and beautiful.

If you have a toothache that’s caused by an infection, your emergency dentists can alleviate your pain and rejuvenate your smile with a root canal or tooth extraction.

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call The Wilhelm Dental Group or come to the office immediately.
