Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can happen anytime. Our Canton MI emergency dentists are available every day to help you with your dental issue, whether it is a chipped or a broken tooth, a painful or a swollen tooth, or other unknown pain in your mouth.

Emergency Dentists Canton MI are able to help you eliminate your dental pain. Your dentist will take the necessary x-rays, do a thorough exam of the problem area and present you with the treatment options. Our Canton MI emergency dentist are able to extract broken teeth, painful wisdom teeth, carry out Root canal treatment, crowns, and any other treatment modality to address your painful condition, and alleviate your pain.

TOOTHACHE   A toothache can occur for several possible reasons. A tooth can be painful because of cavities that have led to an infection. If the cavity is moderate in size, the pain can be alleviated with a root canal treatment, followed by a crown placement. On the other hand, if the cavity is large or if the tooth has a large abscess, the tooth may not be restorable. In these cases, the tooth is usually extracted (which usually eliminates most of the pain). Typically, you will need to replace this missing tooth with a dental implant. Sometimes teeth are painful because of a deep fracture and the treatment can vary from a Root Canal, or a crown, or even an extraction. Your dentist will make the appropriate recommendation depending on your situation. There are many other scenarios that can lead to a painful dental condition, and the emergency dentist Canton MI will help you discover the source of the problem and provide appropriate treatment.

WHAT TO DO IF I HAD A:

Toothache

Some toothaches are simply caused by bacteria or food lodged between the teeth. Gently flossing in the area and then rinsing with warm salt water often takes care of the problem. If the tooth is still hurting, please call our office and most of the time, we can see you the same day. While you are waiting for your appointment time, you can take Over-the-counter pain relievers such as Advil.

Trauma or  Tooth knocked-out

The best chances for a successful “replantation” are within 30 minutes of the event. Your Canton Emergency Dentist can help with this type of emergencies.

  1. Call our Emergency dentist ASAP
  2. Softly pick up the tooth that got knocked out. Do not brush this tooth. Rinse very gently and if possible put the tooth back in the socket. Alternately, you can immerse the tooth in milk and bring it to your Emergency Canton Dentist as soon as possible.

Swelling

A swelling in your jaw or around a tooth is a potentially very dangerous condition and needs immediate attention, because the swelling can affect important structures/ organs including your brain, or breathing. If you feel that you are not able to breath properly or it is life-threatening, call 911 ASAP. You can call our office, so we can get you in and provide appropriate treatment. Swelling is usually addressed with either a cleaning, antibiotics, root canals, or extractions.

Broken or Chipped teeth

Rinse your mouth with warm water. If there is a swelling or the tooth is painful, apply ice to the cheek to temporarily relieve pain. Hometown Dental is available by phone after regular office hours, in the evenings, or weekends. To request an emergency appointment call (734) 667-4941.
