How Do I Know If I Have A Dental Emergency?
Several different types of dental emergencies can happen at any time uninformed. Most people don’t know when they have one until it’s too late, and the situation has worsened.
Here are the most common dental emergencies, along with questions to ask yourself if you think you may be experiencing one:
Are You Experiencing Intense Tooth or Mouth Pain?
You need dental assistance immediately if you have sharp or severe tooth pain.
Once you feel the pain coming on, call us. We’ll do what we can to relieve your discomfort and get you back to normal as quickly as possible at our dentist’s office.
Have A Tooth or Multiple Teeth Been Knocked Out?
If you’ve knocked out your tooth, don’t panic, call us and we’ll see you immediately! If your whole tooth came out with the root, the best thing is to place it in the socket it came out of to prevent any additional infection.
Or please place it in a container with milk and bring it to our dental office. Sometimes, We can put the tooth back in your mouth, which may be okay.
If it’s a chip, get the fragment if it is large enough, although this part is not critical.
Is There Bleeding From The Gums or Mouth?
You might think this is a no-brainer, but most people don’t realize that bleeding gums can indicate a dental or gum emergency. Although not always the case, it’s usually best to call our office immediately to be safe.
Have An Object Lodged Itself In Your Gums?
Call us immediately if you think an object is lodged between your teeth. Knowing what it is will help us determine the proper action to take. If it could potentially damage your gums or tooth enamel, we’ll help you get into our dental office as soon as possible.
Some other emergencies we see include:
- A chipped or broken tooth
- An abscessed tooth or painful tooth
- A loose crown or filling
It doesn’t matter how severe, inconvenient, or painful it may be; if something has gone wrong with your teeth, mouth, or gums and you need immediate care to resolve the issue, call us!
What Should I Do If…
I Have A Severe Toothache
Take ibuprofen if you can handle it, and follow our expert doctor’s advice – we will relieve your toothache quickly. If you are in extreme pain and ibuprofen by itself does not help, you can also take tylenol and ibuprofen at the same time for up to 3 days. Tylenol and ibuprofen taken at the same time together relieve pain better than many prescription pain meds! Be sure not to exceed the dosage recommendations on the bottles; more is NOT better.
Your Jaw Is Severely Injured or Broken.
If you have a fractured jaw, go to the emergency department right away! A severe jaw or facial bone fracture should be treated as soon as possible in an emergency department. After your jawbone heals, we can care for your teeth and any other injuries. Don’t worry; we can permanently repair your teeth and provide you with a lovely smile after your wounds have healed.
A Crown or Filling Has Come Loose is Causing Me Discomfort.
If your crown or filling is loose, call us immediately. We can schedule an appointment to remove the old crown or fill and place a new one, relieving your discomfort. In the meantime, avoid biting down hard on the tooth and try a soft food diet until you can come in.
How To Prevent Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies are never convenient and often cause pain and discomfort. They are hard enough when they happen but even worse when they could have been prevented.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of things you can do to help reduce your chances of experiencing a dental emergency. Follow these tips, and you’ll be one step closer to avoiding this type of situation altogether:
Eat A Proper Diet
A proper diet is healthy for you as it helps your mouth, teeth, gums, and entire body in top shape. Reduce your sugar consumption; when you eat junk food, it can cause tooth decay and gum disease. These issues create the perfect storm for a dental emergency to happen. If not handled properly, gum disease is also a major factor in causing tooth loss and other serious diseases.
Brush And Floss Regularly
It may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many people neglect to brush and floss every day. Brushing and flossing are the two most important steps in proper dental hygiene. Together, they remove plaque and other debris from your teeth, which can help prevent all kinds of serious issues.
Use Dental Products Properly
Using dental products like toothpaste and mouthwash may seem simple enough, but most people don’t use them the right way or at all. If you need help using these products, ask your dentist for more information on using them correctly.
Avoid Unnecessary Risk
Doing things that aren’t good for your teeth, like consuming lots of candy or playing contact sports without a mouth guard, can be dangerous and increase your odds of requiring dental treatment. Avoid risk whenever possible to keep yourself out of harm’s way.
