The Most Common Dental EmergenciesDental emergencies either make themselves known as soon as they happen or are the result of untreated oral health problems that were either ignored or never noticed until they turned into a serious emergency. However, even if you’re dealing with a dental emergency, you need to make sure that you haven’t sustained head trauma, no matter how minor it may be. Head trauma must be treated before anything else – always remember that!
When You’ve Lost an Adult ToothThe first thing you need to do after the loss of a tooth is have any head trauma treated. If head trauma isn’t an issue, do your best to find the tooth, rinse it off with some water, and make sure you handle it by the crown. Handling the root of the tooth too much can cause some serious damage. If the root is badly damaged due to too much handling, or damage in general, the emergency dentist won’t be able to replant it back into the empty socket. The best way to keep it temporarily preserved is to put it back in the socket yourself. If you can’t for whatever reason, the next best thing is keeping it in a cup of milk or water.
How to Deal With an Oral Infection – Abscessed TeethOral infections, such as an abscessed tooth, are painful, time-sensitive, and can turn into a life-threatening dental emergency if they aren’t treated as soon as they are identified. The best way to figure out if you have an oral infection is to regularly check your mouth for small, red bumps. A good indication of an oral infection is any level of oral pain, so make sure you never ignore a toothache. Time is not on your side if you have an oral infection. If you suspect that you’ve got one, call us straight away.
What to Do About a Lost Filling or CrownFillings and crowns are put in place to protect a tooth from further harm. Unfortunately, they don’t last forever, so when one of yours has fallen out, you need to act quickly. Dental cement, cotton balls, pieces of gauze, whatever you can find that will protect the tooth. Make sure you stay consistent in keeping the tooth covered at all times. If you leave the tooth open and exposed, you’re risking total destruction to the point where the emergency dentist will have no point but to pull it.
Going in for an Emergency Tooth ExtractionNeeding an emergency tooth extraction, especially if you’re being told you need one, at the last minute can be quite a fright. The only way to really be prepared for an emergency tooth extraction is to know what to expect. Once the numbing agent kicks in fully, a pair of dental pliers will be used to remove the tooth whole or in smaller pieces by being broken up. After the tooth is extracted using whichever method, you will then be given important aftercare instructions to follow at home either by the emergency dentist or someone from their staff. It’s very important that you follow these instructions properly at home to keep the extraction site clean and free of infection.

Needing an Emergency Dentist vs an Emergency Room DoctorNo matter what’s happened to you, the type of injuries you have, and what state you may be in, you must seek treatment for your head trauma before you have anything else treated. Only an emergency room doctor can treat sustained head trauma. Some emergency rooms have emergency dentists on call, but don’t rely on this because it’s a very rare occurrence. We can book you an appointment with an emergency dentist while you receive treatment for your head, however.
