What are the different types of dental emergencies?
Before you can get help from an emergency dentist, it’s important to recognize what constitutes a dental emergency. Most dental problems are in fact not emergencies. Things like bad breath, teeth sensitivity, staining, and mild tooth pain can wait for a few days or even a week or two before they are evaluated. However, there are certain dental problems that must be looked at immediately. Here are some common dental emergencies and what to do if you experience them.
If you’re bleeding from the mouth, you should apply pressure at the site of the bleeding with a sterile gauze. If the bleeding does not stop after 10 minutes of applying pressure, go to the nearest emergency room.
If a tooth has been completely knocked out of your mouth, it is a dental emergency. You need to see an emergency dentist within 30-60 minutes to save the tooth. Call Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591 as soon as possible. We can get you an urgent appointment with an emergency dentist nearby.
In the meantime, you should try to keep the knocked-out tooth moist. Hold the tooth by the crown (white part) and not the root. Rinse the tooth with cold, clean water if it’s dirty. Try to put the tooth back in its socket in your mouth (do this for adult teeth only, not for baby teeth). Bite on a clean gauze or napkin to keep the tooth in place. If this is not possible, save the tooth in a small amount of saliva or milk. Do not wrap the tooth in tissue or cloth. You can also keep the tooth between your lower lip and tongue or in your cheek, but be careful not to swallow it. Then, make your way to an emergency dentist immediately. 1
If you’re having mild to moderate toothache, you can try to manage it with home remedies for toothache. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water may help. This can dislodge food particles from between your teeth which may be causing the pain. An over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen can help to take the edge off. You can also use a cold compress for temporary relief from pain and facial swelling.
Severe toothache should be checked out by an emergency dentist. Very often, severe dental pain is caused by tooth decay or a tooth abscess (a bacterial infection in the pulp of the tooth). Other possible causes of dental pain include tooth fracture, gum infection, and damaged dental appliances. An emergency dentist in Indiana can examine you and determine the cause of your dental pain. They can offer the appropriate treatment based on what’s causing your pain.
How much does it cost to visit an emergency dentist?
Unfortunately, it is often more expensive to get emergency dental care at night or on the weekend compared to routine dental care during business hours. So, that’s one reason to keep up with your regular dentist appointments. Going to the dentist every 6 months will ensure that you don’t develop severe oral health problems. Regular dental exams and timely treatment for any problems can help to prevent complications and dental emergencies in most people.
Other factors that can affect the cost of emergency dental care include your location (larger cities tend to be more expensive). Of course, dental insurance can significantly lower your out-of-pocket expenses for emergency dental procedures. But if you don’t have dental insurance, you will have to pay for your treatment with cash or credit cards. However, many emergency dentists offer flexible treatment plans and financing options.
Here are some indicative prices for dental procedures done on an urgent basis:
- Root canal treatment: $750 to $1,200
- Tooth extraction: $75 to $750 (with or without anesthesia)
- Cavity fillings: $100 to $250
- Dental crowns: $1,200 to $1,500
