The dentist you connected me with recapped my tooth with no problems! I couldn’t believe I was able to get help on a Saturday. The best thing was I didn’t have to call around and leave messages at dentist office after hours phone numbers and hope for a call back. Thank’s for doing all the work for me!

Stop your pain now by calling our emergency dentist referral hotline! We’ll find you a dentist in seconds!

Arriving at least 15 minutes early will be a great help in filling out paperwork, and giving the staff a few moments to prepare a ready doctor and room. Even though you are dealing with an event that hit you at the spur of the moment, try to make sure you know how you’re going to pay and if the dentist accepts your insurance or payment you wish to use.

Before you get started, make sure you know which medications you may be allergic to, if any and inform the doctor of these.

Common 24 Hour Dental Emergencies

types of dental emergencies in columbus ohio

There are many situations that may arise where you will need to track down an after hours dentist in Columbus, OH to make sure that you get the attention you need. Some of them include a lost crown, abscess, soft tissue injury, emergency tooth extraction, broken or bent braces wire, etc. A few of these emergencies that you may encounter are outlined below along with some tips on how to deal with each situation in the best way possible.

Lost Crown

When you lose a crown, you definitely need to see the dentist as soon as possible, and bring the crown along with you. If you are not able to see the dentist right away, one great tactic is to use a little clove oil where the area is very sensitive. This is a known natural remedy among dental professionals and it can help provide temporary comfort.

If at all possible, try to slip the crown back over the tooth. Before you attempt this, you can coat the inner surface with dental cement, adhesive, or even toothpaste will help to hold the crown in place.


An abscess is an infection that is very painful at the root of a tooth, most commonly caused by very severe tooth decay. Sometimes if a tooth is broken or chipped, an abscess may occur. Patients who are going through an abscess may have a fever, pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold, and a bitter taste in the mouth.

You can try to rinse your mouth with a mild salt water solution several times a day to improve your comfort level: a well-mixed solution is ½ a teaspoon of table salt in 8 ounces of water. Solutions such as garlic and clove oil may make you temporarily more comfortable, but you need the experience of an emergency dental care specialist to provide you the best care and diagnosis.

Soft Tissue Injuries

You may fall down in an accident, bite down too hard, or put food in your mouth that is too hot and it can cause instant injury to the soft tissue. The main objective to think about when dealing with soft tissue injuries is that you want to control the bleeding

To control bleeding and relieve pain, you can hold a cold compress to the outside of the cheek or mouth in the affected area. If the bleeding does not stop, it is imperative that you see a Columbus 24 hour dentist right away!

Emergency Room Vs. Emergency Dentist in Columbus

When you do have a dental emergency, it’s important to know exactly what to do and which treatment option will suit you best. If dental emergencies are not handled quickly and properly, you can suffer permanent tooth loss, infection, and other very serious consequences.

If you have had a sudden impact to the head or neck or difficulty breathing or swallowing, the hospital may be the best option. One benefit of going to the emergency room is that they are prepared to deal with blunt trauma and very profusely bleeding injuries. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is your best option for emergency care from our research.

Patients with a dental condition that is non-traumatic could be served better in a dental office setting because of the definitive type of care administered, and the likelihood that care will be continual, and focused. One important thing to remember is that dentists are going to know the anatomy of the teeth and the way they respond to care, and will quickly be able to specialize in any problem you may have regarding your teeth.
