Our dentists are always ready to help. Remember that tooth pain is not normal and should be diagnosed by a dentist and taken care of quickly. Sudden tooth aches can often mean other complications or severe issues. We encourage you to call us right away so that our emergency dentist in Ellicott City can ask you all the right questions.
If you are a new patient, don’t worry. We can iron all that out when you speak to someone at our dental practice.
We’ll have steps for you to follow or advice to help you manage pain until your next appointment.
Our dental office is located at 5126 Dorsey Hall Dr, Ellicott City, MD 21042. We’ve included both a map and street view for your convenience. You can also grab directions to our office right here.
The most frequent dental emergency is a toothache. It could be the result of a cavity or even teeth grinding. Whether you have a toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water and floss the affected area to examine if any food or other debris has become lodged and could be causing some irritation in that area.
If you have swelling, you can use an ice pack. DO NOT use anything warm to press against the affected area. We also recommend you contact your local emergency dentist before taking any pain medication. Allow them to ask you the right questions to determine the best course of action.
Neglecting cavities is another common dental problem we see often and can eventually become an emergency treatment. Do not leave these untreated when first discovered.
Even if you are uncertain whether your situation is an emergency or not, it is critical that you speak to a dentist as soon as possible. This is one of the reasons our emergency dentists are on call during off hours and weekends. This is also why we are open and offer appointment until 8PM Monday through Thursday.
There is always something you can do to prevent dental emergencies. These however will never protect you 100% of the time. As you know, things can happen. But if you get in the habit of keeping a few of these tips always present, you will greatly reduce chances of something going wrong.
That’s right. If you have a scheduled appointment, which we recommend every six months, make sure you go. Give your local dentist an opportunity to spot potential issues way ahead of time and before they become a dental emergency.
You know the deal, right? We understand some habits can be difficult to maintain and carry out in a consistent basis, but this one you should. Be honest with yourself. You know whether you are brushing two or three times per day, flossing after each meal, consuming excessive amounts of sugar-type foods, and drinking plenty of water. If not, what are you waiting for? A dental emergency to happen?
Sugar is all over the place! Your kitchen pantry, restaurants, in almost every isle at your local grocery store, and at every event. We get it. It’s really hard to avoid it. But you should spend some time understanding the effects of sugar on your teeth and why this is really (really) bad.
What type of sport/s are you doing? Do you grind your teeth when you sleep or when you are feeling anxious? Getting a mouthguard or a night guard to protect your teeth is just so simple! You should definitely be wearing some kind of mouthguard protection. Why not mention this on your next dental appointment?
You would think that’s an obvious one, right? But no! There are countless people (and we know for a fact because our patients admit to it) who use their mouth to open packages, tear up envelopes, and even remove bottle caps. Why? You are putting your oral health at risk, plain and simple as that. Here’s what we recommend – don’t do it!
First of all, we encourage anyone experiencing any kind of dental related pain, to schedule an appointment our dentists in Ellicott City, MD as quickly as possible. This could be a potential dental emergency and you will need a professional exam and diagnosis.
Here are a few things you can do (in the meantime) to relieve some of the pain temporarily. Next, call our office.
We'll get back with you quickly
