How Do I Know If I Have A Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency can be a scary thing, especially if you’re not sure what to do.
There are several different types of dental emergencies that can happen at any time. Most people don’t know when they have one until it’s too late and the damage is done.
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?
If your tooth pain is sharp, excruciating, or otherwise severe, there’s a dental emergency on its way.
Once you feel the pain coming on, call us as soon as possible, and we’ll do what we can to relieve your discomfort and get you feeling back to normal as quickly as possible.
Has a Tooth or Multiple Teeth Been Knocked Out?
If a tooth has been knocked out, you need to get it back in place as quickly as possible. Tooth roots are sensitive and delicate; they’re not designed to live outside the mouth. When this happens, you must act fast to give your teeth the best chance of survival.
Is There Bleeding from the Gums or somewhere Else (i.e., Mouth, Nose)?
You might think this is a no-brainer, but most people don’t realize that when your gums are bleeding, you may have a dental or gum emergency on your hands. Although not always the case, it’s usually best to call our office right away to be safe.
Has An Object Lodged Itself in Your Gums?
If you think there’s an object lodged between your teeth, call us immediately. Knowing what it is will help us determine the proper course of action to take. If it’s something that could potentially damage your gums or tooth enamel (such as a small stone), we’ll try and help as soon as we’re available.
Some other emergencies we see include:
- A chipped or broken tooth
- An abscessed tooth or painful tooth
- A loose crown or filling
These are just a few of the many types of dental emergencies you could face. Anything not listed is still fair game.
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. . .
A tooth has been knocked out.
If you’ve knocked out your tooth, don’t panic! Just call us immediately. If your whole tooth came out with the root, the best place for it is back in the socket it came from. Alternatively, place it in a container with milk and bring it to the office. We can sometimes put the tooth back in your mouth and it may be ok. If it’s a chip, bring the fragment if it is large enough, although it is not critical.
I have a severe toothache.
Call us right away! In the meantime, take ibuprofen if you can handle it and follow your doctor’s advice – with our help, you should be able to get relief from your toothache quickly.
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. We can worry about your teeth and any other injuries after healing your bones. Don’t worry; we can always repair your teeth and provide you with a lovely smile after your injuries have healed.
A crown or filling has come loose or is causing me discomfort.
If you’ve got a loose crown or filling, call us as soon as possible. We can schedule an appointment to remove the old crown or filling and place a new one, giving you some relief from 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 a lot of pain and discomfort. It’s hard enough when dental emergencies happen, but it’s even worse when they could have been prevented.
That’s why we’ve put together 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
Eating food that is healthy for you helps keep your mouth, teeth, gums, and entire body in top shape. 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 issues.
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. The two most important steps in proper dental hygiene are brushing and flossing. Together, they work to remove plaque and other debris from your teeth, which can lead to all kinds of 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 with using these types of 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 in the future. Avoid risk whenever possible to keep yourself out of harm’s way.
If you have any questions, feel free to call us and one of our staff members will be glad to help you out!
How Much will an Emergency Trip to the Dentist Cost Me?
Most emergency dental visits are covered by insurance. Check with us to see if you have any emergency dental benefits through your plan.
If not, that’s okay too! Our office can work with you to help find the best possible solution financially for you and your situation.
Life happens – we understand that and want to make sure you’re taken care of.
