  • What is a dental emergency?

    Certain situations qualify as dental emergencies, ranging from intense toothaches to accidents resulting in chipped or cracked teeth and issues with restorations (crowns or fillings) to lost or severely damaged teeth. 

    If any of the following apply, you have a dental emergency and should contact our office immediately. 

    • Are you experiencing intense pain or significant swelling?
    • Is there a toothache causing persistent pain that won’t go away?
    • Do you have a tooth that’s either loose or has been knocked out?
    • Is there swelling in your cheeks or face accompanied by a toothache?
    • Do you have severe sensitivity in a tooth?
    • Are you suffering from non-stop oral bleeding?
    • Have you had an injury to your jaw?

    Any dental issue requiring immediate attention to stop bleeding, alleviate intense pain, or save a tooth is an emergency. 

  • What is not a dental emergency?

    Not every dental issue is an emergency. These non-emergency situations include:

    • Minor toothaches
    • Small chips or cracks in teeth
    • Lost filling, crown, or bridge
    • Mild sensitivity
    • Food stuck between teeth
    • Bleeding gums from brushing or flossing
    • Dull toothache

    Contact us if you’re unsure whether your situation is an emergency. We can advise whether immediate action is needed or if it’s safe to wait for an appointment.

  • What’s the best way to handle a dental emergency?

    If you have a dental emergency in High Point, it’s important to contact us immediately. However, if the situation is extremely severe, go to an emergency room.

    If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, the most important thing is to remain calm and follow some of our tips below:

    • Create a mouthwash by dissolving a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water.
    • Save a knocked-out tooth in a glass of milk until you get dental care.
    • Use dental floss to relieve pressure from anything caught between your teeth.
    • Apply a cold compress to any areas of swelling or discomfort.
    • Taking over-the-counter medication to help manage the pain, following the recommended dosage instructions.
