Dental Emergency? Our Yuma AZ Dental Specialists are Here for You!
A dental emergency can be scary and painful. At Yuma Dental, you'll be taken care of, both during and after your dental emergency care or surgery. Yuma AZ patients have come to rely on us for a variety of dental emergency needs including:
You may experience tooth pain much too severe to wait for your routine dental exam appointment. If your toothache is extreme, call us at 928-344-5700 for a same-day dental emergency visit with a licensed Yuma Arizona dentist.
A toothache is a sign something is wrong. It may indicate a tooth has abscessed or is likely to do so. Scheduling an appointment to get your tooth checked is important in preventing more serious complications.
Until your appointment, our emergency dentist in Yuma AZ recommends the following:
- Rinse with lukewarm water, which may help to release a food particle causing you pain
- Try using a toothpick or floss to gently remove food that was not released by rinsing alone
- Wrap an ice pack in a towel or wash cloth and apply for 10 minutes, followed by 10 minutes off
- Use pain medication as directed on label; never put pain medication, such as Tylenol or aspirin, directly on the tooth as chemical burns can result
Broken or Chipped Tooth
You may experience a broken or chipped tooth due to a blow to your mouth or as a consequence from a weakened tooth experiencing too much pressure.
If your tooth chips or breaks, save any pieces you can. Rinse the pieces and place them in a zip-lock bag.
In the event you're bleeding, apply a piece of gauze to the area until the bleeding stops. Apply a cold compress for 10 minutes, then off for 10, to reduce swelling and pain.
Broken or chipped teeth can be painful. As soon as you realize your tooth is broken or chipped, please give our office a call at 928-344-5700 so we can fix your broken tooth immediately. We'll work with you to schedule the fastest appointment possible so you don't have to experience ongoing pain as a result of your broken or chipped tooth.
Sometimes fillings can come loose from your tooth. This is more common in older fillings.
Should your filling come loose and you experience pain, contact us at 928-344-5700 for a same-day dental emergency visit with our Yuma AZ dentist.
Until your appointment, place a piece of sugarless gum in the hole or use temporary dental cement, available at most drugstores. If you do use gum, make sure it is sugarless since sugar directly on the tooth could cause additional pain.
If your dental crown comes off, never use super glue to reattach it. Call us at 928-344-5700 to see our emergency dentist in Yuma AZ so your crown can be properly reattached.
If you're experiencing pain, apply oil of cloves to the sensitive area using a cotton swab.
Getting a tooth knocked out is not only painful, it can also be quite traumatic.
If your tooth gets knocked out, try not to panic. If possible, pick up the tooth by touching the enamel part only, not the roots. Rinse the tooth off with clean water. Do not scrub the tooth, which can remove tissue fragments that may be helpful in reattaching to your bone. You can place your tooth in a cup of milk, water with a pinch of salt, or use Save-a-Tooth, which is available at most drug stores.
To give your tooth the best chance possible of being saved, you need to be seen within 1 hour of it being knocked out. Call us at 928-344-5700 to schedule your emergency dental care with our Yuma AZ dentist.
