Fast & Effective Emergency Treatment

While you may be tempted to go to an emergency room for a dental emergency, consider Westerville Smiles for mouth related injuries. We specialize in any dental emergency and are equipped to offer advanced treatments that restore the health, function and aesthetics of your smile. Regardless of your level of discomfort, we want to know about your dental problems as soon as possible. By addressing damage and tooth pain early, we may avoid more costly treatments at a later date.

Typical Urgent Dental Problems

Dental emergencies can vary widely. Here are some typical symptoms that require emergency dental care:

  • Loose or Missing Tooth

  • Chipped Tooth

  • Gum Problems

  • Lost Filling

  • Lost Crown

  • Severe Toothache

  • Abscess

Regardless of the type of dental problem, we have you covered.

Immediate Actions For Toothache

  • Thoroughly rinse your mouth with water

  • Use dental floss to remove any particles that may be lodged between your teeth

  • Apply a cold compress to the outside of the cheek where there is pain

For A Knocked-Out Crown

  • Retrieve the tooth, holding it by the crown (the part that’s exposed in the mouth) rinse the tooth off under running water if it is dirty.

  • Don’t scrub it or remove any tissue that may be attached.

  • Try to put the tooth back in place, making sure it’s facing the right way.

  • Don’t force it, if that’s not possible put it in a container with milk or one with water and a bit of salt if milk it’s available.

For A Chipped Or Broken Tooth

  • If there is bleeding, apply gauze to the affected area until bleeding stops
  • Apply a cold compress to the outside of the cheek near the injury

For A Lost Filling

  • Temporarily stick a piece of sugarless gum into the cavity or use over the counter dental cement
