Everything You’ll Need for Your Emergency Appointment

everything youll need for your emergency appointment
Before you rush out the door to get to your appointment, it’s important that you make sure you bring the following listed below with you:
  • A detailed list of known allergies and current medications
  • Information to file and process an insurance claim, should you have applicable dental insurance coverage
  • Documentation and general information from a recent dentist appointment, should you have anything
You need to make sure that you arrive at the emergency dentist’s with at least 15 minutes to spare to fill out paperwork before you go in for your appointment. If you have any fears or general anxiety, using that time to speak up is also a good idea, as well. They will do everything they can to make sure you’re as comfortable as can be.

Most Common Dental Emergencies Among Patients

Severe toothaches, lost fillings and crowns, oral infections like abscessed teeth, loose braces, and injuries to the hard and soft tissues of the mouth are all the most common dental emergencies among patients seen and treated every day by emergency dentists. Unless a dental emergency has made itself known immediately as it happened, it’s usually due to underlying oral health problems that weren’t treated in time and grew into something much worse than what it initially was. However, no matter what type of dental emergency you’re facing, you must make sure that any sustained head trauma is treated before anything else.

Losing an Adult Tooth

Losing one of your adult teeth can be stressful, especially if it’s one of the visible ones in the front. Make sure the lost tooth is the only problem you’re dealing with, and seek treatment for any head trauma you may have sustained. If all else is well, try your best to find the tooth and, if you do, make sure you pick it up only by the crown. Picking it up by the root can cause it to be destroyed due to irreversible damage. Gently rinse it with water, ensuring you don’t damage it. The best way to preserve it is by putting it temporarily back into the empty socket, but storing it in a cup of milk or water is something else you can do if you’re not comfortable sticking it back in yourself.

Oral Infections – The Major Danger

Oral infections are extremely dangerous and should never be ignored, no matter what your current circumstance may be. They are just like any other type of infection and can be fatal if you don’t treat it by an emergency dentist fast enough. Indications that you could be dealing with an oral infection are red bumps, severe toothaches, and anything that resembles acne in your mouth. If you suspect for a second that you have an oral infection, call us right away. Oral infections start as a time-sensitive oral health issue that turn into a life-threatening dental emergency within days.

Losing a Filling or a Crown

Even though losing a filling or a crown isn’t exactly an uncommon thing, that does not mean you don’t need to act fast. Your tooth is now open and exposed to further damage, so you’ll need to get something to plug up the hole until you can get to the appointment we’ve booked for you. Dental cement, pieces of gauze, cotton balls, whatever you can get your hands on that will work. Just make sure that you stay consistent and keep the hole covered up. If you don’t, you could face losing the entire tooth due to irreversible damage.

How Emergency Tooth Extractions Work

Facing the possibility of going for an emergency tooth extraction is more than enough to keep a patient away, but the best way to prepare for the procedure, is to know what’s going to happen before, during, and after. Thanks to the numbing agent used in the extraction area, you won’t feel any pain throughout the procedure, just a little bit of pressure. Once it’s had a chance to set in, the emergency dentist will remove the tooth using a rocking motion and a pair of special dental pliers. If the tooth is unable to be removed whole, it will be broken up into smaller pieces and removed that way. After it’s out and you’ve had a second to relax, the emergency dentist or someone from their staff will take the time to go over aftercare instructions. You must follow these at home to ensure the extraction site is kept free from infection.
