Most Common Dental Emergencies Among PatientsSevere 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.

Oral Infections – The Major DangerOral 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.

How Emergency Tooth Extractions WorkFacing 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.
