Dental Emergencies 
in Anchorage, Alaska

Like every sort of unexpected hazard in life, dental emergencies can occur anytime, anywhere. Considering this, you should not only be prepared beforehand for dental emergencies but also have a dependable and expert dentist on your phone’s speed dial. Dental emergencies can be anything ranging from a broken tooth to bleeding gums.

The best that you can do in these kinds of situations is to prepare for the worst and have someone dependable to whom you can reach out. Since any dental problem is a painful affair, taking some precaution beforehand pays off in the long run.

Common Types Of Dental Emergencies and How to Deal With Them

Before we move into the more expansive topic of how to deal with dental emergencies, first let’s have a look at some of the most common types of dental emergencies and how to immediately deal with them before a dentist’s aid is possible.

Broken and Knocked Out Teeth

Broken teeth are the most common type of dental emergency in the USA. Broken teeth can result from accidentally walking into a signpost or being punched in the face, so the range of damage differs according to the situation.

The first thing to do when a tooth is broken is to rinse your mouth thoroughly and bring the tooth to Delaney Park Dental in a separate bag. If possible, the broken tooth will be reattached through a dental bonding process. The same goes for knocked out teeth as well. In both cases, the patient should visit a dentist as soon as possible.

Loose Teeth

In certain situations after a heavy impact, instead of being broken or dislodged, a tooth might get loosened instead. As long as certain conditions are met, a dentist can easily save the loose tooth instead of opting for an extraction. If you suffer from a loose tooth, the best remedy until you get to visit a dentist is to apply cold pressure in the general area where the tooth is loose.

Displaced Tooth Filling

Sometimes due to strenuous mouth movement or a random accident, the filling in your tooth implanted through dental surgery can get displaced. In these kinds of situations, the best thing to do is apply dental cement that is available in any pharmacy around you until you’ve set an appointment with your dentist.

Displaced Crown

You may have received a crown previously to repair serious damage to a tooth. However, sometimes these crowns can get displaced in dental emergencies which can pose a big problem to the patient. In situations like these, the first thing that needs to be done is to replace the crown back where it was fitted if it can be found.

If not, then you should take appropriate measures to ease the pain (such as ibuprofen) until you can make it in to see Dr. Miles.

Dental Abscess/Infections

Though dental infections can often be correlated with bad oral hygiene, at times dental infections can strike those who take perfect care of their teeth. Usually, these infections occur between the tooth and the gum, deteriorating the health of both the physiological components of your mouth.

If not taken care of at the right time, dental infections may lead to permanent gum injury and tooth loss that will need comprehensive dental surgical procedures to fix. The best fix for these kinds of instances until you can come in for an appointment is to rinse your mouth with salt water. The water should be lukewarm to achieve the best results.

Tissue Injury

Other than the above-mentioned dental injuries, it is also possible for the sensitive soft tissues inside the mouth to get injured by accident. These can result from bruise and cuts in the gum that result in heavy bleeding which can turn serious. If you notice a soft tissue injury, call your dental office before you do anything else.

After that, you should dry the upper and lower lips properly before rinsing your mouth with cold salt water and applying pressure on it. Only stop applying pressure once the bleeding has stopped, and visit Delaney Park Dental immediately.

Our Patients Say It Best

Explore the heartfelt stories and experiences of our valued patients at Delaney Park Dental. Discover how our dental care has transformed smiles and lives, straight from the words of those who’ve entrusted us with their oral health.

I was nervous to commit to a new dentist for work I needed done representing a significant out of pocket financial investment. There are a lot of providers in Anchorage who offer the same service and aside from online reviews it can be difficult to vet them with confidence. After making a few calls and speaking to different practices I decided on Delaney Dental based on the quality of consultation and the price. I couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Miles and his staff. They were kind, non-judgemental, and professional. Everyone was responsive to my questions and requests over the 5 month treatment plan period and I’m very happy with the final outcome. Highly recommend.

Fabulous staff, caring professionals, and I feel welcome and appreciated as a patient. Thanks Doc Miles and Team! Special shout outs to Kelly, my outstanding hygienist, and Colleen, who hails from Stone’s practice! You guys rock!!

I was really nervous about getting ALL FOUR wisdom tooth removed at once but the staff here were so kind a reassuring. Dr.Sashi did a fantastic job going over the procedure with me before putting me under and I couldn’t have been more grateful. I am recovering perfectly and would highly recommend him to anyone feeling squeamish about any oral procedures.
