If you’ve ever had your plans ruined by an excruciating toothache, you understand how distressing a sudden dental emergency can be. You may also know that postponing emergency dental work can make your problem even worse. The pain, pressure and stress may leave you asking “Where can I quickly find emergency dental care near me?”

Where to Find a Skilled Emergency Dentist

When finding emergency dentists in Owings Mills is a priority, we’re here to help. Our emergency dental office provides comprehensive emergency dental care on an emergency basis during regular business hours. When you call our office, we’ll schedule a same-day appointment with one of our emergency dentists whenever possible. Our goals are to diagnose your condition, provide fast and effective pain relief and determine if you’ll need further treatment to prevent your pain and other symptoms from returning.

We always treat dental emergencies within 24 hours and provide after-hours emergencies with phone access to dental providers.

How Do Emergency Dental Services Work?

Emergency dental services include exams and treatments that address sudden and urgent symptoms. Urgent dental care is often necessary to prevent a dental problem from becoming much worse. Here are a few examples of emergency services we provide during business hours:

  • Treatment of toothaches and other causes of pain and pressure such as tooth decay and accidental injury
  • Emergency repair of broken, fractured or cracked teeth
  • Tooth extractions
  • Treatment for pain and swelling associated with wisdom teeth
  • Restoration of lost dental crowns and fillings
  • Management of orthodontic pain and repair of damaged or displaced wires and brackets
  • Treatment for dental infections

When Should I Seek Professional Emergency Dental Treatment?

I’m not sure what’s wrong with my tooth. When should I seek emergency dental care near me?

If you’re in pain or your symptoms are preventing you from normal activity, it’s time to seek emergency dental care. The following condition and symptoms can all be treated by our experienced emergency providers.

Broken Teeth and Tooth Fractures

It’s important to obtain treatment for broken or fractured teeth promptly to reduce the risk of infection and additional damage. If sharp tooth edges are causing soft tissue injury, use dental wax to protect your mouth, and call us to schedule treatment.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If your tooth is knocked out, our emergency dentists may be able to reimplant it. Rinse your tooth with warm water while holding it by the crown. Place it into your tooth socket or store it in the side of your mouth and call us for emergency instructions immediately.

Severe Toothache or Pressure

A severe toothache may be caused by decay, injury or infection. Contact us immediately if your tooth pain occurs with pressure, fever, ear pain or other symptoms.

Tooth Sensitivity

New or increasing tooth sensitivity may require urgent dental care to rule out infection, a tooth fracture or other problems. If your teeth hurt when exposed to cold, heat or sweet foods, schedule an emergency evaluation.

Dental Decay (Cavities)

Tooth decay is a gradual process that can result in large and painful cavities. Our emergency dentists will evaluate your teeth and determine if fillings or other treatments are needed to relieve pain permanently.

Tooth Abscess

A tooth abscess is a painful infection that often occurs around damaged or diseased teeth or gums. Symptoms include severe and constant tooth pain, pressure, fever, foul-smelling drainage, swollen glands in your neck and significant facial swelling. If you think that you may have a dental abscess, call our emergency dental office immediately. Delaying treatment can lead to serious medical complications.

Lost or Loosened Fillings

If your filling falls out or becomes unstable or loose, you may experience pain or sensitivity in the affected tooth. Contact us to obtain replacement fillings as soon as possible.

Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations

Broken crowns and missing restorations aren’t just an annoyance. Your treated teeth are weak and vulnerable without them. Our emergency dentists can provide either temporary or permanent restorations to keep your smile and dental health on the right track.

Orthodontic Pain or Injuries

Metal braces may cause painful sores or injuries when brackets and wires break or loosen. We can relieve your symptoms and help prevent further injuries by adjusting your orthodontic components.

Tooth Grinding and Enamel Damage

If you grind your teeth while you sleep, your tooth enamel can easily become damaged by the friction and pressure. Contact us for an emergency evaluation if you notice an increase in symptoms or detect new damage to your teeth. Our dentists can strengthen your enamel and offer devices to help curb your teeth grinding activity.

Sinus Pressure

Sinus pressure can sometimes be related to an underlying dental problem such as an impacted tooth or undetected infection. If you are experiencing unusual sinus pressure, we can help detect or rule out dental causes.

Managing a Serious Problem

My symptoms seem very serious. Should I call an emergency dental office near me, or, should I go to the emergency room?

Serious or life-threatening injuries and symptoms require more advanced care than emergency dentists in Owings Mills can supply. If you experience severe blood loss, uncontrollable bleeding, head, face or jaw injuries or severe swelling, seek care at a hospital emergency room or immediately call 911.

How Much Will Dental Emergency Treatments Cost?

The cost of emergency dental care varies. Your total fees and charges will depend on what type of treatments and tests you receive. Our emergency dentists offer convenient financing options and accept most insurance plans and credit card payments. If you don’t have insurance, you may benefit from joining our DentRite® discount plan. Although it’s not insurance, it can help you save anywhere from 20 to 70 percent on common dental procedures, preventative care and more. Contact our office to learn more about the program.

If I have a toothache on a Saturday night, should I wait until a weekday to contact an emergency dental office near me?

Our emergency dentists are available during business hours, but if you have severe symptoms, don’t suffer needlessly or compromise your dental health by waiting. Your local emergency room can provide emergency services to stabilize your condition. If your symptoms occur during our office hours, our emergency dentists in Owings Mills will be available to provide the prompt and compassionate care that you need.
