A dental emergency is any situation that poses an immediate threat to the health of your teeth and supporting tissues.
Dental emergencies are often the result of impact to the mouth, but they also can be caused by infection. To ensure the best possible outcome, any dental emergency should be evaluated by a professional immediately.

We offer same-day emergency services for most conditions during our normal office hours Monday-Thursday.
For severe dental emergencies after hours, such as significant infection, pain, trauma or lost teeth, please call Birmingham Family Dental Services: (205) 251-8128.
For permanent teeth that are knocked out, rinse the tooth and put it back in the socket. If you can’t get the tooth back in the socket, place it in a container of milk, water or saliva to keep it moist. Do not touch the roots (handle the tooth by the crown) and don’t brush the tooth. Contact us IMMEDIATELY for information and emergency treatment – the sooner you get to us, the more likely we can save your tooth!
For baby teeth that are unexpectedly knocked out, leave them out and contact us immediately for instructions.
If you can’t get into our office immediately, here is a list of effective home remedies to make you more comfortable while you wait for care:
Some dental emergencies may not cause pain initially. For example, a cracked tooth may not hurt, but it may lead to nerve damage in the roots. For this reason, all of the listed conditions need immediate attention, whether or not pain is present.
