Urgent & Emergency Dental Care

What qualifies as a dental emergency or urgent care appointment? Even minor pain related to the mouth or teeth might require an urgent dental care appointment in order to prevent permanent damage to your teeth, gingiva (gums) or supporting bone structure. That’s why it’s important to be evaluated by one of Raynor Dental’s dentists as soon as possible.

If you’re in serious pain due to an accident involving the teeth or jaw, suspected gum infection, toothache or chronic mouth issues of any kind, please contact Raynor Dental for a same-day, urgent care appointment.

Emergency or urgent dental care appointments are available daily for patients & non-patients alike.

Call Raynor Dental immediately if you or a family member are experiencing a dental emergency.

Tips for common Dental Emergencies from the American Dental Association (ADA)

  • For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, keep it moist at all times. If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that’s not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Then, get to the Raynor Dental office immediately.
  • For a cracked tooth, immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area. Put cold compresses on the face to keep any swelling down.
  • If you bite your tongue or lip, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress.
  • For toothaches, rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth. Do not put aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues.
  • For objects stuck in the mouth, try to gently remove with floss but do not try to remove it with sharp or pointed instruments.

To avoid seeing the Raynor Dental team outside of regular preventative care appointments, here are a few simple precautions that you can take to avoid accident and injury to the teeth:   

  • Wear a mouthguard when participating in sports or recreational activities.
  • Avoid chewing ice, popcorn kernels and hard candy, all of which can crack a tooth.
  • Use scissors, NEVER your teeth, to cut things.
  • Receive routine dental care
