What You’ll Need for Your Emergency Dentist Appointment

what youll need for your emergency dentist appointment st. louis

You should make sure that you have everything listed below ready to bring to your appointment well before it’s time to go:

• If you have dental insurance – information needed to make and process an insurance claim
• Anything sent home with you from a recent visit to your regular dentist, such as a detailed receipt or copies of an x-ray
• A list that includes all of your medications you take on a regular basis as well as any known allergies you may have

 

To avoid having to rush, make sure you arrive with a minimum of 15 minutes to spare. You’ll need this time to fill out some paperwork, ask any questions you may have, or make your fears or general anxieties known toward your appointment.

What to Look for – The Most Common Dental Emergencies

Whether your dental emergency is the result of underlying oral health issues that snowballed or because you were in an accident and your oral health was affected, one thing stays the same – head trauma comes before everything else.

It’s extremely important that underlying oral health issues are identified and treated before they turn into a full-blown dental emergency.

What to Do About a Lost Tooth

what to do about a lost tooth st. louis

If you’ve lost one of your permanent teeth, the first thing you need to do is assess the situation, identify whether or not you have any head trauma, and go to your local ER for treatment if you have sustained head trauma.

Try your best to find the tooth you’ve lost – it can still be saved! Make sure you only handle it by the tooth and handled rarely by the root, if at all.

You can try to temporarily place it back in the socket yourself, but putting it in a cup of either milk or water and bringing it with you to your appointment later will also work, too.

What to Do With an Oral Infection

Oral infections should be treated just as a bodily infection should be – by taking swift action to get treatment before the infection can turn into a fatality.

The best way to see if you have an oral infection, other than paying attention to any levels of oral pain, is to look for anything that resembles a pimple, like a small, red bump.

Even if you suspect that you’re dealing with an oral infection but can’t see anything in your mouth, call us. Oral infections are not a joke and should never be left untreated for long.

How to Deal With Losing a Filling or a Crown

Losing a filling or a crown happens to pretty much every patient who has one. They don’t last forever, and tend to fall out or break due to age and damage. Even chewing a tough piece of meat can cause one to fall out.

However, if and/or when you lose one, that doesn’t mean you can book an appointment with your dentist and wait to have the tooth recapped or refilled. You need to find something to cover the tooth up and do it as quickly as possible.

Dental cement, gauze, cotton balls, whatever you can find, as long as you keep it covered and protected until you can see the emergency dentist we get for you. If you don’t, he or she may have to pull it out due to additional damage that will eliminate the possibility of recapping or refilling it.

Facing the Possibility of an Emergency Tooth Extraction

Being told that you need an emergency tooth extraction, especially if it’s at the last minute, can be extremely scary. Fortunately, the best way to be prepared for the future is to know a bit about the procedure so you know what to expect.

The tooth will be removed either whole or in pieces by using a special set of dental pliers. Don’t worry, you will only feel some pressure, no pain, thanks to the numbing agent that is administered before the procedure begins.

After the tooth has been successfully removed, you will be given a set of aftercare instructions by the emergency dentist or someone from their staff. You need to follow their instructions at home very carefully, or risk the extraction site becoming infected.

Emergency Dentist vs Emergency Room Doctor

It may not be clear whether you need to see an emergency dentist or an emergency room doctor first, which is where patients tend to mess up.

Head trauma is the most important injury that requires treatment before anything else, no matter how severe your other injuries may be.

Though head trauma comes first, that doesn’t mean you can’t call us while you receive your treatment for it so we can get working on booking you an appointment as quickly as possible.
