Emergency Dentist Clarkston, MI

In the event of a dental emergency, call Clarkston Dental Care at 248-985-2906. Our emergency dental services are a part of general dentistry services. If you have sustained a dental injury from an accident, visit a medical professional before our office.

Patient safety is important to us, and we want to ensure you’re healthy before receiving dental care. It is not always possible to prevent dental emergencies. However, if you visit the dentist regularly, care for your teeth at home, and maintain dental restorations, you can minimize the risk of an emergency.

Common dental problems that we treat in-office include:

Lost Teeth

Have you just knocked out a permanent tooth? If you can find the tooth, hold it by its top or crown. Gently rinse the tooth in cool water. Then, you can place the tooth back in its socket and gently bite it down.

Contact our office if you cannot put your tooth back. You may place the tooth in a cup of saliva to transport to our office. We recommend dental implant treatment if we cannot reattach the tooth. Dental implants are small screws that replace missing teeth at their root.

Tooth Pain

Dental injuries, gum disease, cavities, and TMD are the most common causes of tooth pain. Please get in touch with us, and we will examine your smile and consider your symptoms to provide proper treatment. In addition, we will help you find the source of your toothache and the right solution to alleviate your pain.

Broken Dental Restoration 

If you have a broken dental crown, filling, or dental bridge, please call our office. Do not try to place your restoration back in your mouth, as this can damage your teeth or gums. Instead, we will take digital impressions to create a new restoration. Additionally, we will provide you with a temporary restoration to protect your smile while we plan treatment. 

Excessive Bleeding

Patients may experience bleeding after oral surgery, including tooth extraction treatment. It is usual for patients to experience bleeding at their tooth socket for eight to twelve hours after surgery.

However, if you have bleeding at the socket that will not stop after a day, we ask that you contact us immediately. The body naturally creates blood clots that protect the nerves in the socket. Excessive, abnormal bleeding requires professional care.

Objects Stuck Between Teeth

Toothpicks are always an excellent method to remove objects stuck between teeth. You can also rinse your mouth with warm water and gently floss to remove the object. However, if you cannot dislodge an object stuck between your teeth, call our office, and we can safely remove it. Do not try any other methods that can damage your teeth.
