Is it an Emergency?

Not all bleeding is an emergency that requires urgent care. 

Some may be caused by cuts inside the mouth or irritated gums during brushing and flossing. If the bleeding is caused by severe trauma to the mouth or jaw or accompanied by significant pain or broken or loose teeth, it is likely an emergency.

The first thing to do is to try to stop the bleeding. Rinse your mouth and apply pressure to the bleeding site. If it does not stop or slow significantly within 10 minutes of continuous pressure, go to an emergency room. If the bleeding stops, apply a cold compress to the area to keep swelling down and contact an emergency dentist.

After an Emergency

Once the emergency is under control, there are several restorative options for repairing cracked, broken and dislodged teeth, as well as other damage. Cosmetic dentistry can also help improve a smile after an emergency.

At Pearl White, we can help you understand your options and choose a course of treatment designed to meet your goals.
