We are here to help you with your dental emergency and alleviate any discomfort you may be experiencing as soon as possible. For some dental emergencies, it is critical to be treated as soon as possible. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency right now, call the lines above. When it comes to dental emergencies, be on the safe side and seek treatment even if you are not experiencing severe discomfort.

Intense or Sudden Sharp Toothache

Intense toothaches are most commonly caused by infected teeth. If you are experiencing sharp tooth discomfort, you should see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. It is important to treat tooth infections to prevent them from spreading to other teeth or parts of the body or becoming more severe. If you are feeling anxious about visiting the dentist, rest assured that our kind and caring staff at Northstar will help you feel as comfortable as possible.

Swelling or Abscess

When an infection reaches the nerve of the tooth, it can cause an abscess. If this condition is not treated immediately, it will result in bone loss and a great deal of discomfort.

Knocked out or Dislodged Tooth

Our emergency dentist occasionally sees knocked out (avulsed) teeth. When teeth are loosened or even knocked out from trauma, it damages the mouth, nerves and surrounding tissues. It is critical to see a dentist to re-implant the tooth 30 minutes after the tooth is knocked out in order to have a good prognosis for the surrounding tissues to be able to support the tooth again.

Cracked Tooth

Teeth are extremely strong structures, but sometimes they crack and fracture. Although some cracks do not cause any discomfort, deeper cracks can if they extend to the root. Most deep cracks are caused by trauma, but grinding and biting into hard foods can also cause broken or cracked teeth. Sometimes it is possible to repair a cracked tooth with a filling. If you are experiencing severe discomfort upon biting, call our office for an evaluation.

Lost Fillings and Crowns

If fillings or crowns fall out, teeth can be very sensitive if the underlying dentin is exposed. Lost fillings and crowns are not considered urgent emergencies, but if you are experiencing severe sensitivity and are unable to eat they should be fixed as soon as possible.

Broken Dentures

Broken dentures can make eating and speaking properly very difficult. At Northstar dental we can often repair broken dentures while you are in our office. If your dentures require more extensive repairs, we can send them to a lab or take impressions for new dentures to be made for you in the lab.
