What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?
Are you experiencing pain, a dislodged tooth, a filling failure, or another unplanned issue that’s causing you discomfort or pain? Our office specializes in comforting patients and offering immediate relief from many common dental emergencies, such as toothache and chipped teeth.
If you’re experiencing any of the following issues, call our office now:
When infection reaches the inside of the tooth, it causes inflammation and pain. To alleviate these issues, patients must undergo procedures to eliminate the cause of infection and improve the oral environment.
If you’re experiencing a toothache, take ibuprofen to reduce swelling and pain. Rinse the mouth with warm water to wash away excess bacteria, debris, and other irritants. Call our office and schedule the next available appointment for relief.
If a tooth has been knocked clean from a smile, it has a chance of reattachment.
While playing sports or during other physical activities, blunt trauma to the mouth can result in a knocked out tooth. Recover the tooth, handling it by only its crown and preserve it in over-the-counter solution or milk. Apply a cold compress and gauze to the affected area to reduce swelling and stop any bleeding.
Quickly call our office and schedule for the next available appointment to see Dr. Timothy, Dr. Robison, or Dr. Eric for immediate aftercare.
Restoration or filling failure
In many cases, most restorations have a lifespan. After years of wear and tear, prosthetics can fail and fall out, leaving the smile vulnerable. If this occurs to you, call our office to schedule an examination and a proper fitting for a replacement crown, filling, bridge, or denture.
Stay Prepared for a Dental Emergency
You don’t want to get caught in the rain without an umbrella. Likewise, you never want to be ill-prepared for a dental emergency. Keep these items in your first-aid kit to ensure you always think safety first.
Ice Packs are used to reduce swelling and pain. Ice packs are essential in the recovery process and help to encourage proper healing.
Gauze can be applied to wounds or bleeding in the mouth. Using a clean gauze ensure sanitary dental care, reducing the risk for infection.
Synthetic saliva solution helps to preserve teeth that have been knock as well as treat issues like dry mouth.
