The Most Common Dental Emergencies TreatedEmergency 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.
Going for an Emergency Tooth ExtractionIt’s perfectly normal to be scared when facing the possibility of an emergency tooth extraction, especially if you don’t know much about the procedure or what will happen during one. If you’re fearful of going through pain, don’t worry – a numbing agent is used to numb the area. The only thing you will feel is a bit of pressure when the tooth is being removed, which will either be done by removing it whole or by doing so in smaller pieces. To ensure you don’t develop an infection in the extraction site, you must follow the aftercare instructions given to you a the end of your appointment properly.
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 Filling or CrownFillings and crowns are, unfortunately, not designed to last a lifetime. When a filling or a crown is lost, it’s very important that you act fast and keep it covered until your emergency appointment we’ve scheduled for you. Dental cement, cut up pieces of gauze, cotton balls, whatever you can get your hands on. If you leave the tooth open an exposed, you run the risk of destroying the tooth to the point of no return, which will result in an emergency tooth extraction instead of a refill or a recap.

Emergency Room Doctors vs Emergency DentistsUnfortunately, when accidents or injuries occur, both an emergency room doctor and an emergency dentist are required for various forms of treatment. This is especially true when head trauma has been sustained from said accident or injury. Only an emergency room doctor can treat sustained head trauma. Unfortunately, they cannot save your teeth. Some emergency rooms have emergency dentists on-call, but this is very rare, so we recommend that you do not rely on the slim possibility that your local ER has one. An emergency dentist cannot treat your head trauma, but they can help save your teeth, treat any oral injuries you may have, etc. While you are being treated for any head trauma present by an emergency room doctor at your local ER, give us a call. We can have an appointment booked for you while you are being treated so you can have peace of mind and know you’ll be taken care of by an emergency dentist soon after.
