Emergency Dental

Logan Dental Clinic for Emergency Dental Services 

If you have recently had an injury that is affecting your teeth or have a toothache, it might be time to visit an emergency dentist to have it looked at. Dental emergencies should never be ignored as they can lead to other dental and overall health related problems. At Park Ridge Dental, we provide patients of all ages with quick, efficient and effective emergency dentistry services.  

What is a Dental Emergency?  

Which types of dental issues should be considered a dental emergency? You should consider consulting an emergency dentist if:  

  • You have sustained an injury on the mouth, teeth, jaw or gums while playing sports or have been in a road accident 
  • Your gums are swollen or inflamed 
  • You are experiencing any kind of persistent toothache. Even a constant dull toothache could be an indication of a more serious problem  
  • Pain in the jaw and surrounding muscles due to teeth clenching and grinding  

When it comes to resolving a dental emergency, time is of the essence. Whether you urgently need an x-ray to assess the extent of an injury or an emergency tooth extraction to prevent further complications, Park Ridge Dental is here for you.  

In order to provide patients with emergency dentistry services at a moment’s notice, we reserve a number of appointments each day for emergencies. Unsure about whether you need immediate dental care? Contact our friendly reception team, discuss your emergency and get expert advice on what to do next.  

How Do We Approach a Dental Emergency? 

If you have a chipped tooth, or if a tooth falls out, the first thing to do is keep the tooth in saliva or milk to prevent further damage. There is always a possibility that we can repair the tooth, so keeping it moist is very important.  

When you visit our clinic, the first thing we do is clean the affected area in the mouth and take x-rays to find out the severity of the problem.  

If you have a severe toothache, our dentists will attempt to reduce the pain, but may schedule more appointments if the problem needs more attention.  

Follow up appointments are a critical part of your treatment as they allow us to monitor your progress and catch early signs of nerve damage and decay caused by traumatic injury.  

What to Do if the Emergency Dental Clinic Is Closed? 

If you have been in a serious accident, we recommend visiting a hospital emergency room.  

In case of a serious toothache, rinse the mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to outside of the cheek,  

If you have a chipped or broken tooth, immediately place the pieces in milk or saliva, and apply a piece of gauze inside the mouth until the bleeding stops. A cold compress on the outside of the cheek will help manage the swelling.  

If you have a dental abscess and cannot reach our clinic immediately, rinse your mouth with a mild salt-water solution (½ teaspoon of table salt in 250 ml of water).
