What is an emergency dentist?

An emergency dentist is a medical professional who specializes in caring for cracked, chipped, damaged, or knocked-out teeth. Emergency dentists like those at UpcareClinics have extensive training in oral surgery and other preservative techniques designed to keep your teeth, gums, and smile healthy.

If you or a loved one experiences a dental emergency, it’s important to act quickly and call UpCare Clinics as soon as possible. The team has an emergency phone number and an on-call staff member who is available at all times. 

What are some common dental emergencies?

Dental emergencies affect people of all ages, races, and genders. Some of the most common issues the team at UpcareClinics treats include:

Severe toothaches

Swollen gums

Gum abscesses

Cracked teeth

Chipped teeth

Knocked-out teeth

Loose teeth


Uncontrollable bleeding

Broken braces

Damaged prosthetics (crowns, bridges, or implants)

You might also benefit from meeting with an emergency dentist if you get a foreign object lodged between your teeth, such as a toothpick or a piece of food.

If I lose a permanent tooth, what steps should I take?

If you lose a permanent tooth while playing sports or working, stay calm and pick up the tooth by the top of the crown. Next, rinse the tooth off in tap water to eliminate any dirt or debris. Then, place your tooth back in its socket. If the tooth won’t stay in place, you can put it in a glass of milk or tuck it inside your cheek.

Once the tooth is secure, call the team at UpCare Clinics to schedule a same-day emergency dentistry appointment. When you speak with a staff member, explain the events responsible for your tooth loss. The team will get you in for an appointment. They may also provide you with tips to limit pain or bleeding on your way over.

Is there any way to prevent the need for an emergency dentist?

Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent the need for an emergency dentist. Accidents and injuries happen, often when you least expect. That said, there are steps you can take to lower your risk.

If you play contact sports like hockey, football, or basketball, always wear a mouthguard. If you grind your teeth or clench your jaw during sleep, wear a nightguard. You can also lower your risk of a dental emergency by avoiding bad habits. Try to avoid biting your fingernails and chewing on ice cubes, hard candies, or popcorn kernels.

Taking these preventive measures can significantly lower your risk of an accident or injury that harms your teeth, gums, or tongue.

Cavities and gum disease that require emergency treatment are also preventable. Visiting the team at UpCare Clinics for bi-annual exams and professional cleanings can significantly lower your risk of complications.

If you or a loved one needs to see an emergency dentist, schedule an appointment at UpCare Clinics. Call the office and speak with a team member or book a consultation online today.

What is emergency dentistry and when do you need it?

Emergency dentistry is a term used to describe the dental services that are needed when a person experiences a dental emergency. A dental emergency can include a toothache, a lost tooth, a broken tooth, or any other dental emergency that requires immediate attention.

People typically need emergency dentistry services when they experience a dental emergency that cannot wait. For example, if you have a broken tooth and the bone is exposed, you will likely need to see an emergency dentist right away to prevent infection. Similarly, if you have a severe toothache, you may need to see an emergency dentist get relief from the pain.

How to prepare for your dental emergency appointment?

If you need emergency dentistry services, be sure to call Upcare Clinics as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. We understand that emergencies can happen at any time, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

When you come in for your appointment, we will need to know what is causing the emergency. This will help us provide the best possible care for you. Please bring any dental records or x-rays with you to your appointment.

We also suggest that you arrive early so that we can get started on treating your emergency right away.

Tips for taking care of your teeth after an extraction or other procedure.

If you have recently had a tooth extraction or other dental procedure, it is important to take care of your teeth and gums to prevent infection and other complications. Here are a few tips for taking care of your teeth after an extraction:

  • Be sure to rinse your mouth with warm water several times a day, especially after eating.
  • Avoid drinking through a straw, as this can cause suction and increase the risk of infection.
  • Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen as needed to help relieve pain.
  • Brush your teeth gently, using a soft toothbrush.
  • Avoid biting down on the affected area until it has healed.
  • See your dentist for follow-up care.

Following these tips can help ensure that you recover quickly and safely from your emergency dental procedure.

Very happy with the care, everyone was so nice and my Dr. went above and beyond listening to my concerns and helping me figure out the best treatment plan for me. Highly recommend.”
