Will my dental emergency be painful?

Sadly, most dental emergencies are painful.

While nobody ever wants to be in pain, the good news is that dental pain can help alert you to the seriousness of your situation and draw attention to the fact that you need emergency dental care. 

Dental emergencies can cause pain for several reasons. If your tooth is knocked out, or “avulsed,” this will likely be very painful—but it will be a different kind of pain than if you have a toothache or dental infection. 

If you sustain a dental emergency, you can and should take over-the-counter pain medication as soon as you can. A dose of acetaminophen or ibuprofen can reduce your pain and make your symptoms bearable until you can get to our dental office.

If you’re still in significant pain when you arrive, our clinical team will treat your pain with the appropriate medications. Dr. Fairfax can also prescribe a pain medication for after your treatment if she believes your pain will persist. 

Remember, the faster you can get to our dental office for an emergency visit, the sooner we can get you out of pain. We don’t want our patients living with painful smiles or broken teeth, so we’ll do everything we can to minimize your suffering and get you feeling better.
