How We Handle Your Dental Emergency

Dr. Darcey explains how we handle dental emergencies at Clear Lake Dental Care with care and understanding.

Emergency Dental Care

Dental emergencies such as a lost filling, broken teeth, and a severe toothache should get immediate treatment. We know that emergencies happen, and if you are in Webster, TX, or the surrounding areas, please call Clear Lake Dental Care immediately if you are suffering from:

  • Knocked-out tooth or teeth
  • Toothache
  • Tooth loss
  • Injury or bleeding in the soft tissues of the mouth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Inflammation or pain in the cheeks, face, and mouth
  • Ongoing tooth pain even after taking pain relievers

Don’t delay treatment. Doing so can lead to more serious dental problems, including the spread of infection. Here are some ways to deal with this kind of dental issue while on your way to emergency care.


Knocked-Out Tooth

See your dentist right away to increase the chances of getting the knocked-out tooth reattached.

1.Handle the tooth with care.

2.Hold it by the top part (the crown) and gently rinse with running water.

3.Try to place the tooth back in the socket and keep it in place using a piece of gauze.

4.If it’s painful or uncomfortable to keep in the tooth socket, put the knocked-out tooth in a container of saliva or milk.


Toothache

Most dental emergency cases are because of toothache or pain. This can be caused by trauma, infection, cavities, or erupting wisdom teeth. A visit to your dentist can help find the cause of the pain and lasting relief with tooth extractions, sedation dentistry, and other dental treatments.

For severe and life-threatening injuries, please call 911 or, if possible, go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room. Your dentist in Webster can treat traumatic dental injuries, including lost, chipped, or knocked-out teeth as well as toothaches.


Toothache or Sore Gums

Thoroughly clean around sore area. Rinse by swishing with warm salt water and/or try to dislodge trapped food or debris with dental floss. You can take over the counter pain reliever like ibuprofen to help ease the pain until you can see us. If your face is swollen, apply a cold compress. Contact us immediately if swelling is present. In some cases, swelling can be a sign of infection and would require urgent treatment.

Bleeding After Baby Tooth Falls Out

Have child bite down on clean, folded gauze or cloth over the bleeding area for 15 minutes. Repeat if necessary, but call us if bleeding continues.

Possible Broken Jaw

Try to keep the jaw from moving by using a towel, tie or handkerchief. Get to nearest emergency room immediately.
