Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

What are common dental emergencies that require immediate care?

Common dental emergencies include severe toothache (possibly indicating an abscess), a broken or chipped tooth, a knocked-out tooth, injuries to the gums or soft tissues of the mouth, and lost fillings or crowns. These situations often need prompt attention to alleviate pain, prevent infection, and preserve the affected teeth.

How do I manage a dental emergency until I can get to the dentist?

In case of a dental emergency, taking immediate but careful action can help. For a knocked-out tooth, gently place it back in its socket (but don’t force it), or keep it moist in a container of milk or saliva. For toothaches, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and use a cold compress for swelling. It’s important to avoid applying aspirin directly to the gums, as this can cause additional complications. If you experience a dental emergency, even if you’re unsure your situation qualifies as an emergency, give us a call at Nala Smiles as soon as possible to get professional advice and schedule an emergency visit.

Is bleeding from the mouth considered a dental emergency?

Yes, bleeding from the mouth is often treated as a dental emergency. It can be a sign of injury to the gums, cheeks, lips, or tongue, or it might indicate a severe dental condition like advanced gum disease. It's important to seek immediate dental care to determine the cause of the bleeding and receive appropriate treatment.
