If you think that your condition counts as an emergency, you’re probably right. There are lots of common dental emergencies, including chipped and broken teeth, loose or knocked-out teeth, lost dental work, and toothaches, to name just a few. If you’re in pain, your mouth is bleeding, and you don’t know what to do, contact Stevens Dental at (225) 291-2111 to schedule an emergency appointment right away.
Toothaches are the most common dental emergency. A toothache that lasts more than 1-2 days usually indicates a tooth infection, which could lead to the loss of the infected tooth unless you get proper treatment.

With our in-office milling unit, we can build common dental prosthetics like dental crowns in just a few minutes, using digital scans of your mouth and teeth.

First, emergency dentistry helps you get out of pain. Dental emergencies like toothaches or a broken tooth can be excruciatingly painful and interfere with your day-to-day life. With our help, you can get out of pain and get back to normal.
Early intervention is always best when it comes to dental emergencies. The sooner you get treatment for your issue, the more likely it is that you can avoid future complications related to your dental injury or other dental emergency.
Getting immediate care also saves you time and money. For example, if you get care for an infected tooth right away, Dr. Stevens can save your tooth and treat it with a root canal and a crown. But if you don’t get treatment in time, you may end up needing a tooth extraction and a replacement with a dental implant, which is a more costly and complex procedure.
First, call Stevens Dental at (225) 291-2111. Tell us about your issue, and we’ll schedule you for a consultation ASAP. Our team can also give you tips on how to deal with your situation before you visit our office in Baton Rouge.
If you’ve knocked out a tooth, grab it by the top, rinse it off, and put it into a container of cold milk. Bring it in with you to our office, and come in as soon as you can. Teeth must be replaced within 1-2 hours at most to save them. If you’ve lost a piece of dental work like a crown, simply recover it, rinse it off, and put it into a small plastic bag or container.
If you’re bleeding, use clean gauze, a cotton ball, or a paper towel to apply pressure to the area and absorb blood. You can take medicine like ibuprofen to help with pain, and ice the cheek near the affected area to help with swelling and pain.
You can’t treat dental emergencies on your own. So make sure you come into Stevens Dental as soon as you can. Dr. Kasan Stevens will provide you with the care you need to eliminate your pain, restore your oral health, and get back to your daily routine.
