What is a Dental Emergency?
The most obvious category of dental emergencies is oral injuries which can result in:
- Damage to your teeth
- A loose or knocked-out tooth
- Cuts and lacerations to your gums, lips, and/or tongue
However, there are other types of dental emergencies, too. A pulled-out filling or crown is a serious emergency because it exposes your vulnerable enamel to further damage and could result in tooth infection. Even a case of advanced gum disease could be considered a dental emergency!
Is a Toothache Considered a Dental Emergency?
Without proper care, the infection will continue to worsen, and you may eventually even lose your tooth. If you want to save your tooth, it is important to come to McCue Dental Health for a root canal.
What Should I Do If My Tooth Is Knocked Out?
Once your tooth has been recovered, contact McCue Dental Health right away and let us know that you are coming in so we can prepare for your arrival. To save your tooth, you will need to have your it replaced in its socket within 1-2 hours of your injury.

Why is Immediate Care So Important?
Getting help right away also maximizes the chance that Dr. McCue will be able to save your tooth. In turn, this means you’ll spend less time and money on your dental treatment.
A cracked tooth, for example, is fairly easy to treat if you see Dr. McCue immediately. However, if you wait too long, it could become infected, requiring a root canal, or even resulting in the loss of your tooth, which is more costly and complicated to treat.
To prevent further complications, and ensure you get relief from your pain, you should always contact McCue Dental Health as soon as you begin to experience a dental emergency.
