Been bringing myself and my kids to Dr. Wong for 15 years. I have recommended her to others many times, and those who go to her agree with me that she is basically magic with dental work. Really appreciate her, and have had great experiences with others in her practice and associates she has referred us to for specialty work, too

Dental Emergency Concerns

At Avenue Dental, we understand how concerning a potential dental emergency can be. We’ve answered some of the most frequently asked dental emergency question below.

Recognizing a Dental Emergency

While dental emergencies come in various forms, severe toothaches—beyond just mild sensitivity—often indicate a more pressing issue, possibly even an infection that can spread if not addressed. Sometimes the nature of the emergency is evident, like an unexpected injury during a sports event or a daily activity. Immediate professional attention may be required for symptoms such as:

  • Intense tooth pain
  • Swelling or inflammation
  • Broken, loosened, or dislodged teeth
  • Damage to dental work or dentures
  • Significant tooth sensitivity
  • Gum complications or bleeding
  • A discolored tooth

When faced with a dental emergency, swift intervention is critical. Without timely attention, your situation might exacerbate. If you’ve suffered a major trauma, it’s advised to first visit an emergency room and contact Avenue Dental from there.

Determining the Urgency

While our Austin-based dental team would always recommend seeking advice if in doubt, certain minor symptoms might not demand immediate intervention. However, any persistent discomfort or change, even slight tooth sensitivity, shouldn’t be ignored as it could be an early indication of a bigger problem. Always let our professionals assess and guide you.

Saving Your Tooth

If your tooth has been knocked out or is loose, our primary objective at Avenue Dental is its preservation. Speedy treatment significantly improves the chances of successfully reattaching or stabilizing a tooth. Handle a dislodged tooth with care, rinse it gently, and if possible, reposition it in its socket or keep it moist until your appointment.

Your Emergency Dental Visit

Upon arrival at Avenue Dental in Austin, our compassionate team will inquire about the nature of your emergency, its onset, and any potential causes. After a digital dental x-ray and a comprehensive examination, we’ll provide immediate relief and, in many cases, complete the necessary treatment right away. Otherwise, we’ll stabilize the situation and schedule a subsequent visit.

Concerns About Pain

We understand dental anxiety. Our team strives to make every patient feel comfortable, and if required, we offer sedation options to ensure a pain-free experience. It’s worth noting that regular dental visits can often prevent many emergencies.

Long-term Impacts on Oral Health

Many emergencies, especially infections, can arise from neglect or sporadic dental care. Ignoring minor issues can eventually jeopardise your oral health, leading to more severe complications like gum disease or tooth loss. Regular check-ups at Avenue Dental can help you avoid such predicaments.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

Consistent dental care is the key to preventing many emergencies. Following guidelines by the American Dental Association, we recommend:

  • Brushing and flossing at least twice daily.
  • Regular check-ups and cleanings at Avenue Dental.
  • Using mouthguards during sports and considering nightguards if you grind your teeth.
