When You Need Emergency Dentistry

No one expects them or plans for them, but dental emergencies do occur. And like any other accident, dental emergencies should not be ignored as they can potentially lead to larger dental problems as well as permanent damage which could result in more expensive and involved dental procedures over time.

When You Need Emergency Dentistry - Jacqueline S. Brown, DDSThere are various types of dental problems which require emergency dentistry. They range from aches to injuries and an emergency dentist will know how to help. Knowing what to do when an accident occurs can mean the difference between losing and saving teeth.

Injuries can occur to both teeth and the tissue which surrounds them. When tissue becomes infected or an abscess appears, it can be very painful. Warm salt water rinses or even cold water can help, but a dentist will have to get to the root of the toothache in order to treat the problem successfully.

Other tissue injuries include bleeding of the tongue, cheeks, gums and lips. Bleeding can be the result of a broken tooth irritating the soft tissue around it, or other reasons. Rinsing with salt water, applying pressure with gauze, and cold compresses should reduce the bleeding. If the bleeding will not stop, seek immediate medical attention.

Tooth loss can happen when teeth are knocked out accidentally or extruded partially. Either way, see the dentist right away. Often times a knocked out tooth can be preserved and replaced in its original spot without any cosmetic dentistry. However a broken or chipped tooth, filling or crown will need to be repaired or replaced.

Objects caught between teeth can seem small but annoying. If you are unable to remove the lodged object gently with dental floss, then make an appointment with the dentist. Trying to remove the object with sharp objects may cause further injury to your gums and teeth.

Not all accidents can be avoided. But there are things that can be done to protect teeth and mouths. Wearing a mouth guard during sports activities has the ability to cut down on injury. Using appropriate tools for tearing and cutting instead of your teeth can also minimize the risk of injury. Foods like popcorn kernels, hard candy and ice can crack and damage teeth and should be avoided or consumed conscientiously.

For more information on avoiding dental emergencies as well as treating them when they arise, talk to Dr. Brown and her staff. They will prepare you for a lifetime of outstanding smile care.
