What You’ll Need for Your Columbus Emergency Dentist Appointment

What to Bring for Your ColumbusEmergency Dental Visit

While we’re booking your appointment for you, you can get ready by gathering a number of things you’ll need. For example, make sure your driver’s license or a birth certificate, some form of acceptable personal identification, is out and ready to bring with you.

Any recent documentation or paperwork from your regular dentist, recent being up to a year. Anything from a dental x-ray to even a detailed receipt that outlined the treatments you received will work just fine. Whatever you can find and bring with you will help the emergency dentist and their staff understand your oral health better.

You will also need to let the emergency dentist and their staff know about any current medications you are taking, as well as any allergies you have that you know for certain about. Making a list is a good idea! They need to know this information to ensure that nothing is given to you that could cause a reaction to your medication or an allergic reaction at any point during your treatment.

Once we’ve called you back to give you all of the details of your appointment, calling ahead to ask if your current dental coverage, should you have dental insurance, is accepted is never a bad idea. If you don’t have insurance, however, you should still call to ask for a quote. Calling ahead to ask will ensure that there are no surprises at the end of your appointment when it comes time to pay.

On the day of your appointment, make sure you arrive at the office with at least 15 minutes to spare before your appointment is scheduled to start. You’ll need some time to fill out paperwork, ask questions, and, if applicable, make any concerns you have known to the emergency dentist and their staff.

Don’t be scared to speak up if you have a fear of the dentist, either. Emergency dentists and their staff have quite a bit of experience when it comes to patients who have a fear of the dentist, so they know how to keep fearful patients calm and comfortable for the entire duration of your appointment.

Dental Emergencies Most Commonly Seen in Patients

The best way to get through a dental emergency is by knowing what you’re up against and what you can do to best help what you’re going through. Going through a dental emergency is never easy, especially if the pain level you’re experiencing is above your pain threshold, so knowing a bit about the most common dental emergencies can help you more than you might think.

Unfortunately, dental emergencies don’t have a schedule to adhere to, so they certainly don’t care about yours. When was the last time you had a dental emergency when it was convenient? Probably never.

Although, we must remind you of the importance of going to the emergency room if you’ve sustained any head trauma. No matter what happened or if there are any other injuries you’re dealing with as a result, head trauma always comes first on the treatment list.

Teeth That Have Been Lost or Knocked Out

Whether you lost a tooth because it randomly fell out or it was knocked out, for whatever reason, making sure you have no head trauma is the number one priority.

Once you’re certain everything else is okay, finding the lost tooth in question is what you need to be doing. If you’ve managed to locate it, make sure you pick it up by the part that is visible in your mouth, known as the crown. Picking it up by the root, the part you don’t see when it was in the socket, can seriously damage it.

If you want to have the tooth put back in by an emergency dentist in Columbus, try not to touch the root at all and make sure it’s safe. Damaging the root can actually ruin your chances of having it implanted back into the empty socket.

Preserving it can be done a couple of ways, but the best way to do it is by trying to put it back into the socket yourself temporarily. If this is something you can’t do for whatever reason, you can also put it in a cup of milk or water until your appointment.

Abscessed Teeth and Other Oral Infections

Oral infections are the worst kind of dental emergency you could ever have. They’re extremely dangerous, very painful, and can even be life-threatening if you don’t seek treatment as soon as possible.

If you’ve had a chip close to the gum line recently, you’re at risk of developing an abscessed tooth. Chips along the gum line often create an open door to the inside of the tooth, where your toothbrush cannot reach. You should also check your mouth regularly for swollen, red bumps or what looks to be acne, as well.

If you believe you have an abscessed tooth, don’t wait any longer and call us as soon as you have that hunch. Time is not on your side when it comes to oral infections. You need to act fast and seek help immediately before it turns into a life-threatening emergency.

Losing a Crown or a Filling

Chances are, you had a crown or a filling put in to restore and/or protect the tooth from further harm, so having one fall out is definitely a dental emergency. They don’t last forever, especially when they’ve aged quite a bit or have been damaged at any point in time.

You need to act quickly if you’ve lost a crown or a filling. Picking up some dental cement, pieces of gauze, or even a couple of cotton balls is your next main priority. Whichever you use, you need to be consistent and keep the tooth covered at all times.

If the tooth is left open and is damaged further, the emergency dentist won’t be able to refill it or recap it. Instead, you may be facing an emergency tooth extraction, so make sure you use something to protect it until your appointment.

Having to Have an Emergency Tooth Extraction

If you’re going in to have an emergency tooth extraction, or have been told that you need one when you were expecting a different procedure, can be both stressful and scary. The best way to be fully prepared for your emergency extraction is to know a bit about what happens during the procedure.

You won’t be made to feel any pain, just some minor pressure, due to the fact that the emergency dentist will numb the entire extraction area. Once you’ve had a few minutes for the numbing to take full effect, he or she will make a couple of incisions in order to help loosen the tooth up.

Using a pair of dental pliers, which won’t be as scary as you may think, the emergency dentist will use a rocking motion to loosen the tooth until it pops out. If this method doesn’t work in removing the tooth, it will be broken up into sections and be removed by the piece, instead.

After the procedure is finished and you’ve had a few minutes to settle, you will then be given aftercare instructions to follow at home. You must make sure that these instructions are followed to the letter at home to keep the extraction site clean, free from infection, and to lessen the amount of time that it will take to heal.

Knowing Whether You Need an ER Doctor vs an Emergency Dentist

If you’re in a situation or have had an accident and have multiple injuries, knowing whether you need an emergency room doctor versus an emergency dentist first is crucial. Your broken teeth do not come before your concussion.

Emergency room doctors are not equipped to save your teeth, but they can treat your head trauma, help you manage any pain, and treat your other injuries. Emergency dentists are not equipped to treat your head trauma, but they can save your teeth, treat oral injuries, and manage your pain to a certain extent.

Remember, no matter what happened, your head trauma will always need to be treated before anything else.
