Why Do I Have Tooth Pain?
If you have a toothache that bothers you throughout the day and keeps you up in the middle of the night, it is in your best interest to see a dentist right away. The tooth can either be infected, in need of an extraction, be erupted, or have trauma.
Please don’t wait to contact us, because waiting can make your tooth emergency worse and possibly even lead to a painful dental abscess. The source of your toothache will never really be known until you’re seen by a dentist.
How Can I Reduce the Toothache Before I Visit the Dentist?
One way we recommend to reduce the pain and swelling in your mouth is to apply a cold ice pack to the area. Whenever you arrive at our office, we will work as quickly as we can in order to eliminate any pain or discomfort you have. Our ideal outcome is to have you leave pain-free. Don’t hesitate to visit us, as we are here to help.
My Tooth Was Knocked Out or Fell Out
If your tooth was knocked out or simply fell out, try finding it, rinsing it in warm water, and placing it in a glass of milk. Although this may seem odd, Dr. Allen might be able to save your tooth.
If she can’t save it, the next option would be to discuss the possibility of a dental implant, bridge, or denture. It’s essential to note that, at times, root tips or pieces of a tooth remain after it’s been knocked out. For this reason, it is crucial that these fragments are removed from the mouth by our dentist during the emergency visit.
I Have an Infected Tooth; What Can You Do?
Another reason many people wish to see a dentist urgently is due to an infected tooth. Tooth pain is sometimes caused by an infection. During your visit with us, we will conduct a thorough examination, take X-rays, and check for sensitivity with a hot or cold stimulus.
Dr. Allen will provide the best treatment plan available to reduce the chance of the infection getting worse or turning into a dental abscess.
What Are Some Prevailing Signs That I Need to Visit The Dentist?
- Your roots can be exposed to bacteria through a cracked tooth.
- Any sort of trauma can lead to a risk to your dental health in the future.
- Face swelling is a sign of a severe dental emergency.
- An abscess is a dental emergency you must address right away.
What is an Emergency Dental Evaluation?

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency during business hours, the prices cited below might be accurate; however, if your dental emergency occurs outside of business hour,s the price of treatment might climb, because many dentists will not be available.
