Dental Emergencies Treated by Emergency DentistsEmergency dentists see and treat a lot of different dental emergencies each day, so knowing what the are can help you to identify what you’re going through and give you a bit of peace. Dental emergencies occur, more often than not, as a result of an underlying oral health problem that was either unidentified or left untreated. That, or you know you’re having a dental emergency as soon as something happens. For example, you’ve had a tooth fall out during a car accident. No matter how badly you’re injured, head trauma will always come first on the list of priority injuries.
Lost or Knocked Out TeethNo matter how the tooth managed to come out of the socket, make sure you assess yourself for head trauma and get that treated before anything else. If you managed to find the tooth, you can try to put it back in the socket yourself or keep it safe in a cup of milk or water. However, make sure the tooth is picked up by the crown and not by the root. Picking it up by the wrong end can make it impossible for the emergency dentist to successfully implant it back in due to irreversible damage done to the root.
Oral Infections – Abscessed TeethOral infections, such as abscessed teeth, are extremely dangerous. They can infect the blood and be fatal, like any other type of infection, so they need to be treated as quickly as possible when one forms. The best way to figure out if you have an oral infection is to pay attention to any oral pain and look for anything that resembles a pimple or a red bump in your mouth. If you’re in any level of oral pain, have spotted a red bump in your mouth, or have a suspicion, in general, that you’re dealing with an oral infection, call us immediately.
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.
