What You’ll Need for Your AppointmentMake sure you have the following with you before you leave for your appointment with the emergency dentist: Documentation or any sort of paperwork from your most recent dental visit Insurance information needed for filing a claim, if you have dental insurance A list containing medications you take on a daily or regular basis and known allergies You need to give yourself some extra time to ask questions and fill out paperwork when you arrive. A minimum of 15 minutes should be more than enough. You should also use this time to explain to the emergency dentist and their team that you’re nervous or afraid, if you are feeling these emotions. Knowing your mindset and how you’re feeling is the best way for them to go the extra mile to keep you comfortable.
The Most Common Dental Emergencies TreatedNo matter what you’re going through, head trauma will always be the top priority on your injury list. This type of injury must be dealt with and treated before anything else. Dental emergencies are either the result of an oral health problem that went untreated or undetected for however long, or because of an accident that resulted in injury.
Knocked Out or Otherwise Lost TeethBefore you do anything else, you need to make sure that any sustained head trauma is seen and treated by a doctor. If you managed to find the tooth, you can try to put it back in the socket yourself or keep it safe in a cup of milk or water. However, make sure the tooth is picked up by the crown and not by the root. Picking it up by the wrong end can make it impossible for the emergency dentist to successfully implant it back in due to irreversible damage done to the root.
Oral Infections – Abscessed TeethOral infections, such as abscessed teeth, are extremely dangerous. They can infect the blood and be fatal, like any other type of infection, so they need to be treated as quickly as possible when one forms. The best way to figure out if you have an oral infection is to pay attention to any oral pain and look for anything that resembles a pimple or a red bump in your mouth. If you’re in any level of oral pain, have spotted a red bump in your mouth, or have a suspicion, in general, that you’re dealing with an oral infection, call us immediately.
Lost Fillings or CrownsIt’s not uncommon for a filling or a crown to fall out because of the fact that they wear out due to age and possible damage. However, if you lose one or the other, fast action is required on your part. You need to pick up some dental cement, gauze, cotton balls, whatever you can find that will help you to consistently cover the tooth up. If the tooth isn’t protected using one of these methods, you may be facing an emergency tooth extraction due to further damage.
Going for an Emergency Tooth ExtractionNothing is as scary as being told you need to have an emergency tooth extraction. Even if you don’t know you need one until the very last second, the best way to prepare for one is to know what happens during the procedure. A numbing agent will be administered to the extraction site to ensure no pain will be felt throughout the entire procedure, just some minor pressure. Once it’s set in, a special pair of dental pliers will be used to remove the tooth whole or by breaking it up into smaller pieces and removing it by the fragment. Once the tooth is out using either method, you will then be given important aftercare instructions that you will need to follow at home in order to avoid infection.
