Common Dental Emergencies

  • Broken or cracked tooth/teeth. In minor cases, these types of incidents can be cared for during regular office hours. For major broken or cracked teeth, give us a call as soon as you can. Keep the tooth as clean as possible. Depending on the pain level of the cracked or broken tooth, we can repair the damage quickly to ease your discomfort. Chipping or cracking a tooth can happen to anyone of any age. It’s important to see an emergency dentist if this happens to prevent possible infection from an exposed nerve setting in. If the chip is minor, we can advise on the best way to get your smile looking like new and may be able to fix the problem during the initial visit.
  • Broken jaw. Jaw fractures can greatly affect your dental health. As the anchor of your teeth, an untreated cracked or broken jaw can deform teeth and damage roots and cause you huge amounts of pain. Contact us in cases of minor damage or if you have facial swelling. If the fracture is major due to serious injury, we advise our patients to seek immediate medical care.
  • Permanent tooth knocked out. Some people may fear that losing a tooth will irrevocably change their lives for good. Contrary to this belief, you have many options when it comes to repairing your smile from tooth loss. If your tooth falls out or is knocked out and you can find it, try holding it back in its socket and contacting us as soon as possible. Your next best option is, yes, putting it in a glass of milk and bringing it straight to your emergency dentist. If the tooth is missing or not able to be reinserted, Kenmar Dental offers implants, bridges and many other cosmetic replacement treatments.Give us a call any time of day, and we can discuss a treatment plan that is right for you. If a serious accident or injury has knocked out teeth, call 911 and seek medical attention.
  • Object caught between teeth. Everyone has gotten something caught in their teeth. This feeling can be maddening. If you have exhausted every avenue of self-treatment, there is no need to potentially damage your teeth and make the situation worse. Contact our emergency dental office in Marietta, and we can help free your teeth of any wedged object. Remember that foreign objects left between teeth can have negative consequences for your dental health. Don’t wait too long to get help!
  • Severe toothache. There is no reason for you to continue to suffer from the pain of a toothache. The problem causing the pain can likely be discovered and treated in a single visit. If the problem is more serious, we can discuss how to best ease the discomfort and treat the problem correctly. If you have started having recurring issues with pain when eating, gum irritation or temperature sensitivity, these can be precursors to a more severe toothache. Please schedule an appointment so we can help you feel better. In more advanced cases, it’s likely that tooth decay or infection has occurred. Our emergency dentists will advise on the best course of action to prevent further pain.
  • Broken or dislodged crowns. No matter how well a crown was applied to your tooth, it can become detached. Our staff is available whenever you need a crown reattached. Be sure to come in as soon as possible to avoid damage to the underlying enamel and pulp. This is important even if you are not in pain as it will prevent possible infection or fractures to the tooth.
  • Facial swelling. If you have pain and swelling in your face or jaw, don’t hesitate to call us right away. A severe tooth or gum infection, usually caused by an abscessed tooth, can spread further into your jaw and surrounding tissue and can be life-threatening if not promptly treated.
  • Bleeding. If you are experiencing severe or continual bleeding from the mouth or gums, make a call to your local emergency dentist – Dr. Patel. Gum disease is usually the culprit and Kenmar Dental will help get your oral health back on track.
