Have the victim rinse their mouth with warm water, and try to place the tooth back into its socket. If this isn’t possible, put it in a container of milk or saltwater.

Tooth fractures are also a common dental emergency and may happen for several reasons. Most of the time teeth that fracture is weakened by dental decay. In some situations, grinding may also contribute to tooth fracture causing loss of tooth structure.
Fractured teeth may experience some pain and or sensitivity to hot or cold intermittently. If you have a tooth that has fractured, please give us a call as soon as possible. In some situations, depending on the severity and extent of the fracture, we may recommend a simple filling or if you have symptoms the tooth may need additional care.
Dental Cavities and Tooth Pain
Is your child complaining about a very bad toothache? Is that small cavity you’ve ignored now causing your mouth to throb with pain? If so, the problem could be a serious infection within the tooth, so you should contact Starlite Dental immediately. Have the person gently rinse their mouth with warm water, and they can place a cold compress on their face to lessen any pain. They can take an OTC medicine as well, but avoid placing a pill directly on the gums, as this can damage them.
Dental pain is the most common dental emergency experienced by adults and kids alike. Dental pain could be due to several reasons but most common cause of pain in both kids and adults is dental decay or cavities. Anytime a cavity is getting close to the nerve of the tooth, it well manifests itself in the form of a sharp, aching type of pain that is increasing in intensity. If you or your child is an experiencing a sharp, aching type of pain, we recommend giving us a call as soon as possible.
Root canals often invoke negative feelings and a sense of pain. At Starlite Dental, however, root canals are only performed when needed and only using the most comfortable and best technology with minimal pain and discomfort. The only thing our patients say after say after their root canals is “Oh! I didn’t feel a thing.”
Often, a really bad toothache stems from an infection in the dental pulp, which is where the sensitive nerve of a tooth is located. In the past, the only solution to this problem was to remove the tooth, but now, Dr. Jaiswal can save it with a root canal. This procedure involves numbing a patient, removing the damaged tissue, and then rebuilding the tooth using a custom-made restoration. Thanks to Dr. Jaiswal’s expert touch and our sedation options, patients report feeling little to no discomfort during this procedure.
During the procedure, we are here to care for you. Let us know if you need anything to relax and we will help make your experience soothing and stress free.
Emergency Tooth Extractions
While extracting a tooth is never our first choice, sometimes, it’s the only one. Dr. Jaiswal may recommend an emergency extraction if:
- A tooth has a cavity that is too large to be repaired with a filling or crown
- A tooth is too broken to be put back together
- Advanced periodontal disease is present
- Decay in one tooth is beginning to threaten the surrounding teeth
- A tooth is impacted (stuck while trying to erupt), painful, or infected
Should you ever need a dental extraction, our team will go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable the entire time. We will discuss with you anesthesia and after care instructions thoroughly both before and after your appointments to make sure you are well cared for. If appropriate, we will discuss options and put together a plan to replace the tooth as soon as possible so you don’t have to deal with an incomplete smile. We are here for you during from your consultation visit to the end of the procedure helping you every step of the way.
