Emergency Dental Care & Extractions
Although severe emergency dental care & extractions are rare, they do happen, and we want all of our Oak Hollow Family Dentistry patients and other residents in Draper, Utah, to know that we are here to help. Please get in touch with our office immediately at (801) 495-4440 to schedule a same-day appointment. If you have a dental emergency after hours, please call our office, and our voice message will have an emergency phone number for you to call.
Time-sensitive dental emergencies include:
In our office, we consider a broken or chipped tooth a severe dental emergency and urge you to contact us immediately. A tooth can break in many different ways and can be the reason for infection and decay. If the majority of your tooth has broken off, we encourage you to locate the tooth, keep it moist, and call us.
In some cases, it is possible to reattach the broken portion. If reattachment is not possible, we also offer many beautiful restorative options.
Getting a tooth abruptly knocked out can be severely painful and scary. This dental emergency could happen to anyone at any time, so taking preventative measures to protect your teeth if you are participating in dangerous physical activities is important.
If you have a knocked-out tooth, time is of the essence. If you receive professional treatment quickly enough, the tooth can be reattached and continue to function. The first thing you should do is gently pick up the tooth by the crown. Take care not to touch the tooth root, as you can easily damage the delicate nerve tissues.
Rinse the tooth using cool water and try to place it back into the socket. If you cannot do this, place the tooth in a container of milk or saliva, and seek professional help as soon as possible.
If you or a family member gets a tooth knocked out, call us to know what to do and see us right away. Our priority at Oak Hollow Dentistry in Draper, UT, is to relieve pain and restore your smile.
A severely infected tooth is often dark and discolored, with the surrounding gum tissues constantly swollen. With severely infected teeth, taking immediate action is highly encouraged to prevent further problems. We offer many emergency dental care & extraction treatments that can resolve the infection and allow you to keep your natural tooth.
