What You’ll Need to Take to Your Emergency Dentist AppointmentHaving everything you’ll need to take with you ready to go before your appointment will ensure that things go as smoothly as possible, so here is what you’ll need: A list that outlines your known allergies and the medications you’re currently taking Any type of paperwork and/or documentation given to you after a recent visit to your dentist Insurance information if you plan on making an insurance claim It’s extremely important that you give yourself some extra time, at least 15 minutes, to fill out paperwork for your patient profile. Don’t be scared to mention that you have a fear of the dentist or that you’re uncomfortable, in general. You definitely won’t be the first person they hear this from, so don’t be scared to speak up.
What Are the Most Common Dental Emergencies?The most common dental emergencies are lost fillings and crowns, severe toothaches, injuries to the soft and/or hard tissues of your mouth, and ever loose braces. However, all dental emergencies must wait to be treated if there is any sustained head trauma present in the list of injuries. Head trauma will always come first, no matter what. The majority of dental emergencies are the end result of untreated, underlying oral health problems, while others, such as a knocked out tooth, will let you know you’re having a dental emergency as soon as it happens.
Lost TeethNo matter how the tooth was lost, you need to check to make sure you don’t have any sustained head trauma that requires treatment before anything else. If you’re lucky and managed to find the tooth, make sure you pick it up by the crown and not by the root. Carefully rinse it with some water, making sure you don’t touch the root, once again. The best way to preserve a lost tooth is to temporarily put it back in the socket yourself, but storing it in a cup of water or even milk will do until you can get to the emergency appointment we’ve booked for you.
Abscessed Teeth and Other Oral InfectionsAny type of oral infection has the potential to kill you, just like an infection anywhere else in your body. If they are left untreated, you’re putting yourself in harm’s way through blood poisoning and eventually death. Minor to severe toothaches and red bumps in your mouth are both indications that you’re developing, or already have, an oral infection. Call us immediately if you’re suffering from an oral infection – your life could depend on it.
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.
