Emergency dentistry – Things to know

There are a number of problems which are categorized under dental emergencies. It is important for patients to not panic during such situations. An awareness of steps to be followed can give confidence to patients when facing an emergency dental condition. Following are some of the critical conditions that require immediate dental care.

Toothache

One of the most common reasons for a toothache is decay. Patients who are suffering from toothache can rinse the mouth with warm water and use cold compress if there is swelling. Pain medicine can temporarily relieve patients from pain. During the dental visit our emergency dentist removes the decayed part and restores tooth using appropriate materials.

Knocked out tooth

Knocked out tooth can be saved if it is put back in place within an hour of the accident. The tooth should be gently picked holding the crown and rinsed to clean the dirt without disturbing the root. Patients can try and put the tooth back in place. If it doesn’t work, the tooth should be preserved in the vestibule and the patient should visit the emergency dentist at the earliest.

Chipped tooth

Broken pieces of the chipped tooth should be collected. Patients should rinse the mouth with warm water. If there is bleeding, gauze can be used to stop it. Patients should visit the dentist at the earliest to restore the damaged tooth.

Fallen crown

Only a dentist can put a fallen crown back in place. A cotton swab dipped in clove oil can be used over the tooth if there is a pain. Patients can try to temporarily put the crown back in place using toothpaste before visiting the emergency dentist.

I am normally one of those anxious people who go to the dentist, but at Apex Smiles I did not feel this way. Everyone there is great and very calming.
