The Most Common Emergencies Treated by Emergency DentistsKnowing what you’re going through can help you gain some peace of mind before you’re able to get to the emergency dentist appointment we’ve booked for you. Dental emergencies come in different ways – they’re either the result of an accident or another event that results in a dental emergency, or because of ignored or underlying oral health problems that were never properly treated. Either way, you need to make sure that any head trauma is treated first. Head trauma outweighs any other injuries present, no matter what.
Knocked Out or Lost Teeth
Abscessed Teeth and Other Oral InfectionsIt’s important to understand that oral infections, no matter the form, are a time-sensitive dental emergency that can easily turn into a life-threatening one if they aren’t taken care of by an emergency dentist as soon as possible. If you even suspect that you have an oral infection, call us right away. The best way to figure out if you have an oral infection is to check your mouth for small, red bumps. Oral pain is always an indication that something is wrong, so make sure you pay attention to that, as well.
Lost Fillings and Crowns
Having an Emergency Tooth ExtractionHaving to face an emergency tooth extraction is never easy – especially if you’ve been told at the absolute last minute that you need one. However, you can be fully ready to have one done if you know a little about the procedure and what you can expect. A numbing agent will be used to ensure you feel no pain, just a bit of pressure. Once it’s had a chance to kick in, the emergency dentist will use a set of dental pliers to remove the tooth whole or break it up into smaller pieces and remove them by the fragment. Once the tooth has been successfully removed, the emergency dentist or one of their staff members will take some time to discuss important aftercare instructions with you. You’ll need to follow their instructions at home to make sure the extraction site stays clean and free of infection.
