Frequently Asked Questions

Can emergency dentistry save my tooth?

In many cases, prompt emergency dental care can save your tooth, especially in cases of trauma or infection. The sooner you can get treatment, the better the chances of a positive outcome.

Will my insurance cover emergency dental treatment?

Coverage can vary depending on your insurance plan. Our team at Laughlin Dental can help you understand your benefits and also offers various financing options.

How does Laughlin Dental handle emergency dental care?

At Laughlin Dental, we prioritize your emergency by offering prompt, compassionate care. Our team is equipped to handle a variety of dental emergencies with the goal of relieving pain and providing effective solutions.

What should I do if I’m experiencing bleeding?

Apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth or gauze. If the bleeding is severe or doesn’t stop, seek immediate medical attention.

How do I manage pain in a dental emergency?

Until you can get to our office, over-the-counter pain relievers can help manage pain. Applying a cold compress to the outside of your cheek can also help reduce pain and swelling.

Are lost fillings or crowns considered emergencies?

While not always as urgent as other emergencies, lost fillings or crowns should be addressed promptly. They protect your tooth from damage and exposure to bacteria, so getting them fixed quickly is important.

Can a severe toothache be considered an emergency?

Yes, a severe toothache can be a sign of serious underlying issues, such as infection or abscess. It’s important to get it examined as soon as possible to avoid further complications.

How quickly should I seek treatment in a dental emergency?

You should seek treatment as soon as possible. Many dental emergencies, like a knocked-out tooth, require treatment within an hour for the best chance of saving the tooth.

What should I do if I have a knocked-out tooth?

If you have a knocked-out tooth, try to handle it by the crown, not the root. If possible, gently place it back in its socket or keep it moist in milk or saliva. Contact us immediately since time is crucial in saving the tooth.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

A dental emergency typically includes situations like severe toothache, knocked-out or broken teeth, lost fillings or crowns, abscesses, bleeding that doesn’t stop, and any injury causing severe pain or damage to your teeth or gums.
