How Can I Prevent Dental Emergencies?

While there will never be a way to avoid emergency situations with 100% certainty, families can reduce their overall risk by following some simple tips:

Don’t chew on the ice that comes in cold drinks.
Limit your exposure to foods that are extremely hard, sticky, or tough to chew.
Always wear a mouthguard when playing sports with physical contact.
Use scissors to open any difficult packaging and never your own teeth.
Remember to schedule checkups and cleanings every six months at Blackwell Dentistry!

Cost of Dental Emergencies

Depending on your type of injury, the treatment you will receive will vary. Because of this, it is impossible to determine how much a particular dental emergency will cost before scheduling an appointment. It is during this visit that your dentist will examine the problem area and determine the best course of action. Maybe you only require antibiotics? Or maybe you need root canal therapy to address a severely infected tooth? No matter the type of care you receive, it’s best to start by letting a qualified professional look at your smile and recommend an appropriate form of treatment.


How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

If you find yourself in a dental emergency situation, it’s important to act quickly. Stay calm, and contact our team right away so that we can get you scheduled as soon as possible. However, there are steps you may need to take on your own until you get to our office. Here are tips for certain scenarios you may face and how you can increase the chances of successful treatment.


Consistent tooth pain is often a sign of deep decay. You can reduce your discomfort by taking over-the-counter pain relievers, but do not place any directly on the tooth. You can also use an ice pack to control swelling and numb the area. Just be sure to apply it for 20 minutes and go at least 20 minutes before applying it again. Keep in mind that a root canal may be required to remove the source of the pain.

Chipped Tooth

If you can, find and bring all the pieces of the tooth with you to the appointment. Cover any sharp edges or points with dental wax if necessary. We will strive to salvage the natural tooth, but if the damage reaches below the gumline, the tooth may need to be extracted.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Quickly locate the tooth and pick it up by the crown. Do not touch the root structure of the tooth or any tissue attached. Gently rinse it off with clean, warm water, and try to reseat it in your gums. Otherwise, you can store it in milk. Be sure you come directly to our practice because the odds of successfully re-implanting the tooth drop an hour after the tooth comes out.

Broken or Lost Filling or Crown

Restorations don’t last forever, unfortunately. If possible, find the filling or crown and rinse it off. Make sure you also rinse out your mouth. Then, apply a dab of toothpaste to the restoration and reattach it. Remember this is only a short-term fix—you still need to visit us as soon as possible to get a new restoration placed.

Something Stuck Between The Teeth

An object stuck between your teeth can be more than just annoying. It can cause serious pain and actually move your teeth out of alignment. Try to work the object out by gently flossing between your teeth. If these attempts don’t work, contact us for an emergency visit. Do not use sharp instruments, such as a knife, to remove the object yourself.

Partially Dislodged Tooth

Similar to a knocked-out tooth, treating a partially dislodged tooth is time sensitive. It’s important to arrive at our office as soon as possible so that we can reset the tooth in its proper place.

Gum/Soft Tissue Injury

The soft tissues in your mouth will likely bleed if injured. Hold clean gauze up to the area and apply gentle pressure, and the bleeding should subside shortly. If the bleeding doesn’t stop after 10 minutes, go to an emergency room immediately. Otherwise, we strongly encourage you to come into our office so that we can check the area to ensure that no serious damage has been done.


Emergency Dentistry FAQs

Emergencies such as losing a tooth or severe oral pain are frightening enough on their own, but they can become even more nerve-wracking if you’re unprepared to deal with them. On this page, you’ll find some of the questions that patients often find themselves asking when it comes to dental emergencies; make sure you’re familiar with the answers so that you can act quickly when you need to. And of course, you can call us if you have any other concerns about the emergency care we provide.


You should always call the hospital for health issues that put your life in danger, and issues involving the mouth are now exception. If you experience uncontrollable swelling that gets in the way of breathing or swallowing, a severe injury that fractures or dislocates your jaw, or a deep cut accompanied by bleeding that you can’t control, get to the nearest emergency room as quickly as you can.

Other dental emergencies are less dire but still require immediate attention; this includes broken teeth or any infection that has yet to interfere with your breathing. In these cases, an expert dentist like Dr. Neale will be better equipped to help you than the doctors at an emergency room.


Toothaches are commonly caused by an infection that has taken hold of the soft tissue (also known as pulp) in the middle of the tooth. This tissue contains many nerve endings, so naturally you’ll experience quite a bit of discomfort when it’s under attack from bacteria. Root canal therapy is a very common solution for treating these infections before they cause you to lose the tooth altogether. There is no need to be afraid of this procedure; we will numb your mouth and take every step to make sure it’s as straightforward and painless as possible.


Virtually all dental emergencies become worse over time. A broken tooth will not repair itself and will instead suffer from further damage. Oral infections will gradually become more severe and start to spread to other areas of the mouth and body. A lost tooth will become virtually possible to replant if the attempt to do so isn’t made within the hour. To avoid long-term pain and more complex health problems, it’s always best to call Dr. Neale for help as soon as you can.


Unfortunately, this question is a little more difficult to answer than you might think. Not all dental plans are the same, and the coverage you’re entitled to is likely to vary. Your plan might help pay for certain parts of your emergency care without covering others. For instance, most insurance companies are more than willing to pay for a crown or filling, but they won’t necessarily cover implants for missing teeth. Our team will help you understand your benefits and find a way to keep your personal costs as low as possible.

Called at 9am to make an appointment because one of my wisdom teeth broke they got me in at 10am. Asked me if I wanted to go ahead and have all 4 wisdom teeth removed, as well as several fillings & a cleaning. So I did & I was VERY pleased with how well it went. All the girls were so friendly! Dr. Neale was so amazing & they made sure I was comfortable for the entire thing.

Dr Aaron Neale and his staff are wonderful! They are so kind and compassionate, they make you feel comfortable, and listen to their patients. I had avoided going to the dentist for so long prior because my experience at other dentist just wasn’t good. Dr Neale and his staff are so good, I didn’t feel anything with my extraction or my root canal, not even the shots to numb the area! I won’t go anywhere else!

This is the ONLY dentist I will ever take my daughters to. The entire staff has made dental visits no longer traumatized for my girls. Dr. Neale, himself has stopped working on other clients and made sure that when my girls were on the verge of having a meltdown, that they were able to get back down to their normal breathing and sweet hearted natures. Everyone in his office and on his staff, from the moment you Walk into the office, take their own time and special approach all to assure you of the best, care possible, without the fear, trauma, and brutal methods alot of other dentist s use to " manage" small children. The members of Blackwell dentistry actually do care about each and every patient they see, and I am grateful my girls are no longer fearful or having panic attacks when I inform them that their visit is due. Thank you guys so much for the time, patience, and care you give us each and every visit!!
