At City Creek Dental, our team is able to quickly and effectively treat a wide range of dental emergencies. When a dental emergency strikes, whether it be a knocked-out tooth, chipped tooth, or severe tooth pain, it’s vital to act quickly to ensure a positive treatment outcome and to alleviate any pain or bleeding that occurs.

Accidents and toothaches are the two main causes of emergency dental visits for our patients. A toothache may result from an injury or an infection. If you are in need of emergency dental care in Temple, TX, do not delay in giving us a call. We’ll get you in as soon as we can to assess the situation and determine how to alleviate your suffering.

Emergency Dental Care Examples


Knocked-Out, Loosened, or Chipped Teeth

Chipped, loosened, or knocked-out teeth should always be responded to immediately, because fast action betters the chances of your dentist being able to save the tooth. If you happen to have an adult tooth knocked out, be sure to take the tooth and place it back in its socket facing the correct way. If the tooth cannot be placed in its socket right away, place the tooth in a container of cold milk while you make your way to the dentist. For chipped teeth, be sure to collect the chipped pieces of the tooth as they can often be reattached through bonding. Loosened teeth also require immediate attention.

Toothaches and Severe Tooth Pain

Toothaches and moderate to severe tooth pain can often be a sign of underlying oral health concerns, such as tooth decay or a tooth with an infected root. Severe toothaches caused by an infected tooth root can be treated through a root canal, which, thankfully, are now routine dental procedures that can be performed with a minimal amount of discomfort for the patient. Keep in mind that root canals are meant to alleviate pain and discomfort by removing infected root tissue, not cause it!

If you’re experiencing a moderate to severe toothache, be sure to book an appointment with our emergency dentistry team as soon as possible so the true cause of the pain can be determined and treated.

Foreign Objects In the Gums and Teeth

Foreign objects and materials in the teeth and gum line can result in bleeding, infections, and other harmful consequences of leaving these materials in the mouth. Foreign objects can become lodged in the mouth during spring events and outside play, or through accidents and forceful bites. If you happen to be experiencing foreign objects caught in the teeth, try to remove the object with dental floss or by gently working a toothpick between the teeth and the object. If this fails to remove the object, immediately book an appointment with our emergency dentist in Temple, TX.
