We understand that having you or your child injured can be scary and we want to make sure you feel confident and supported by our staff. Here is everything you need to know and emergency dental care in Toledo, OH.

What to do in a dental emergency?

In the case of a dental emergency, you can either go to an emergency room immediately or try to get an appointment with your dentist. For serious dental emergencies, we do suggest you go to the hospital so that you get the medical care you urgently need. If it can wait for a scheduled appointment, we will get you in as soon as we possibly can.
 
A cracked tooth, lost filling or mysterious toothache can most definitely be treated at Great Smiles Family Dentistry or your local dentist!

What are the most common dental emergencies?

Dental emergencies can range in severity, but here are the most common emergencies that we see in our clinic:
 
Cracked tooth
A cracked tooth can lead to bigger problems so make sure to book an appointment right away to get it fixed. While waiting for a dentist appointment, we recommend rinsing out your mouth and applying a cold compress to the damaged area.
 
Toothache
Toothaches can be caused by a plethora of problems and can be incredibly uncomfortable. Book an appointment with Great Smiles to find the cause of the toothache.
 
Loss of permanent tooth
An injury can cause the loss of a permanent tooth which may require you to go to the hospital. If you put the tooth in a glass of milk, there is a chance it can be put back in place.
 
Extruded tooth
An extruded tooth or a dislodged tooth needs immediate treatment from a dentist or emergency room. Apply a cold compress onto your face and get medical care right away to fix the tooth and prevent possible infection.
 
Injured gums and tongue
Emergency dental care also includes the gums and the tongues. Fortunately, these injuries tend to heal themselves; however, if the bleeding doesn’t stop, seek care to possibly get stitches.
 
Missing filling
A missing filling can get infected and cause a lot of pain. Call your dentist to prevent infection and in the meantime, consider placing a piece of sugarless gum onto your cavity to keep it as protected as possible.
