Most Common Dental Emergencies Treated Every Day

Knowing what the most common dental emergencies are can ease your mind and give you an idea of the severity of what you’re facing.

The majority of dental emergencies occur because of underlying oral health problems that were either undetected or ignored for however long. Other emergencies, such as a lost tooth or filling, however, tend to make themselves known as soon as they happen.

Even if you’ve lost all your teeth and your jaw is about to fall off, you must make sure you have any sustained head trauma treated fully first.

Knocked Out or Lost Teeth

Losing a tooth, no matter how it happened, is definitely an alarming situation to be in. However, before you do anything else, make sure you haven’t heard your head enough to sustain head trauma. If you have, ensure that it’s treated straight away.

If the tooth that was lost has been found, you can try to put it back in yourself as a temporary measure, but putting it in a cup of milk or water is another good preservation method that will work just fine. However, make sure when the tooth it picked up you handle it by the crown.

Handling the lost or knocked out tooth by the root may make it impossible to be safely put back into the empty socket due to irreversible damage.

Oral Infections and Abscessed Teeth

Oral infections are just as nasty and dangerous as an infection located anywhere else in your body. They require swift action on your part, which means you need to be treated straight away.

The best way to figure out if an oral infection is present in your mouth, is to monitor your levels of oral pain and look around for anything that looks like a pimple or a small, red bump. Oral pain, in general, is a good indication that something isn’t right with your oral health.

If you’re facing an oral infection, or suspect that you have one, in general, call us right away. Time is not on your side when it comes to any infection, whether it’s an oral or a bodily infection.

Losing a Filling or a Crown

Fillings and crowns aren’t designed to last for the rest of your life and were put in place to protect a tooth from further harm. When one falls out, you need to act as fast as you possibly can to save the tooth before it’s too late.

Whether it’s dental cement, gauze cut up into small pieces, or cotton balls, you must make sure that tooth stays covered at all times until your emergency dentist appointment.

If you just leave the tooth uncovered and exposed, you could be facing an extraction instead of having the emergency dentist refill or recap the tooth.

Emergency Tooth Extraction – What to Expect

Patients no doubt feel a bit better when they understand what they can expect from an emergency tooth extraction procedure. It’s never easy being told you need a tooth pulled, but knowing what’s about to happen can help ease your anxiety a bit.

Once the numbing agent has done its job to ensure no pain will be felt, the tooth will either be removed whole or by being broken up into pieces and removed that way. A special set of dental pliers will be used to do this, but they’re not as scary as they may sound!

After you’ve had a moment to relax, someone will go over aftercare instructions with you – either the emergency dentist or someone from their team. You need to follow their exact instructions to ensure you don’t develop an oral infection once you’re at home.
