What Can I Do In A Dental Emergency?
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), contact sports are responsible for up to half of all dental injuries. Common dental injuries can even happen at home, after a fall or after biting into a hard candy. Some of the most common dental emergencies include the following:
Damaged, cracked or chipped teeth:
Stay calm and have a loved one call the dentist while you apply an icepack to the outside of your cheek. You may also wish to rinse your mouth gently with warm water to remove debris. Never put aspirin or other medications directly on the damaged tooth.
A knocked-out or loose tooth:
If you have lost a tooth, place it in a small container of saliva or whole milk if possible while you call the emergency dentist for immediate care.
An object caught between teeth:
Never use a sharp or pointed tool to attempt to remove an object that is stuck between your teeth. Instead, floss and rinse your mouth gently with warm water. If the object remains stuck, please call to schedule an appointment.
Painful toothache or pain in the mouth:
Sudden or constant dental pain may be the result of a cavity, infection or fractured tooth. If you are in dental pain that seems to be getting worse over time, don’t wait to call our office and arrange a convenient appointment.
Damage to gums or soft tissues:
Healthy gums are the foundation for healthy teeth. Whether you have been in an accident, have unusually sensitive gums or noticed a lesion in your mouth, call us to explain your dental concerns and make time to come in for treatment.
Prevention is Key!
There are two good ways to prevent a dental emergency.
#1 Keep your teeth clean by brushing and flossing daily.
#2 See your dentist a minimum of every 6 months to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums. If a problem arises, it will probably be very small and we can catch it before it becomes an emergency.
