Emergency Dental Care

There’s never a convenient time for a dental emergency. At DiMichaelangelo Family Dentistry, we know how distressing mouth pain, a dental trauma, or broken tooth can be. That’s why we will take your emergency call 24/7.

Is This a Dental Emergency?

Before you call, evaluate the situation and decide if it is an emergency. In some cases, you may be able to wait until our office is open to talk with us. For example, if you have a broken crown, it can be repaired with a temporary, over-the-counter dental repair paste until you can make an appointment. The same paste can be used as a stopgap measure for lost fillings. These are not emergencies.
Are you experiencing, or have you experienced, any of the following?
  • Trauma to the face or mouth
  • Severe pain in the face or mouth
  • Bleeding
  • Loose teeth
  • Facial swelling
  • Bulging “knots” on the gum tissue
    These may indicate a dental emergency, and you should call us right away.
  • Keep these numbers posted, so they are readily available when you need them!








    What Should I Do?

    In some situations, there are steps you can take to reduce or eliminate pain and/or tooth loss.


    A mild toothache may be relieved with brushing, flossing, or rinsing your mouth with warm water. If you notice swelling in your mouth or gums, fever, or other symptoms of illness, you may require medical assistance. Call us immediately.

    Broken Tooth

    With or without pain, a broken or cracked tooth can open the door to more serious problems. Gently rinse your mouth with warm water, and call us to evaluate the tooth.

    Trauma and Lost Teeth

    If your tooth has been knocked out, save the tooth! Rinse it in warm water (no scrubbing!) and try to replace the tooth in the gum. Unable to replace it? Put the tooth in a container of milk and call us right away. Don’t forget to bring it with you to your appointment!

    Bit Your Tongue?

    In most cases, if you bite your tongue, cheek, or lip, it will bleed, but will not require emergency treatment. If bleeding does not stop, call us and be prepared to seek urgent care.

    When in doubt, call or contact us in Columbus, Westerville, Sunbury, or Blacklick, OH!
