Posted on 12/19/2022 by Water's Edge Dental
What to do when you get a dental emergencyIt is critical that you get prompt medical attention if you have a dental emergency, such as an injury to your gums or teeth. It might mean the difference between keeping or losing your teeth. If you want to maintain good oral health, you should never neglect a dental emergency. Dental emergency can also occur in an instant. You're having a great time skating with your buddies one minute, and then you're holding your tooth in your palm the next. The most essential thing is to remain calm and to get quick assistance from a dentist. In any event, if you have a dental injury or accident, you have two options: seek emergency medical attention or manage the problem on your own until you can visit a dentist.

For toothaches

This is the pain you experience as a result of factors such as tooth decay or gum infection. Before heading to the dentist, the greatest thing you can do at home is to rinse your mouth with warm salty water, which can help ease some of the discomfort. If your cheeks are swollen, use a cold compress from the outside. Before you go to the dentist, take some pain relievers.

For loss of permanent teeth

This can occur if you sustain a significant injury, such as a fall. It is critical to find the tooth and bring it to the clinic for prompt treatment. Avoid scrubbing the dropped tooth just clean it by rinsing it with clean water. You can try to put the tooth back in its original position, if it gets so painful, place it in fresh milk and bring it to the dentist office as soon as possible. Our dental team will be ready to help you with dental emergency.
