Emergency Dental Care

Dental emergencies are an unfortunate part of life. You may be eating your favorite hard candy and feel a tooth crack, perhaps you experience an unrelenting toothache.

At Brookside Dental, we offer emergency dentistry services so you can receive the gentle and prompt care you need when you need it most. We welcome current patients and nonpatients to visit our dentist in Nampa for immediate dental care at Brookside Dental. Our current patients have priority, but we are pleased to assist anyone who needs efficient care. 

However, if you're experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please go to your local emergency room or call 911.

Common Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency can impact the health and function of your teeth, gums, and oral structures and tissues. Here are some of the most common reasons why people need emergency dental care:

Sudden Tooth Pain 

Tooth pain with no apparatus cause can indicate a severe dental issue, such as deep decay, gum disease, infected or abscessed teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, or exposed tooth roots. Ignoring the pain can exacerbate the problem, putting your oral health and wellness at risk. 

Chipped or Fractured Teeth 

A chipped, fractured, or broken tooth can occur from sudden trauma to the mouth or biting down on a hard piece of food or object. Cavities also weaken the internal structure of teeth, which can lead to an eventual fracture, and you may not even realize it until the damage is done. If your tooth breaks, try to collect the broken piece and bring it with you to your dental appointment. 

Lost Teeth 

Losing a tooth is a critical dental emergency. Your emergency dentist in Nampa can replace the natural tooth in some cases. Other times, we may have to replace the tooth with a dental bridge or dental implant. 

The chances of saving a natural tooth are best if we act quickly. We recommend collecting the tooth, rinsing it with lukewarm water, and replacing it in the socket without touching the root area. If you can't place the tooth back in the socket, keep it in a glass of your saliva or milk and bring it with you to your emergency dental visit.
