Dental Emergencies - Don't be scared...
Dental emergencies can involve:
• Chipped or Broken teeth
• Lost Tooth
• Bitten Lip or Tongue
• Item Stuck in your Teeth
• and much more
Tooth ache can be a constant nuisance and is caused by a variety of factors. So, it is imperative that one seeks professional help as soon as possible. In the meantime, to mitigate the pain, over- the -counter pain medication can be taken. Application of ice pack on the cheek over the painful area, also further helps to reduce the pain and swelling. Do not apply heat, as it will worsen the pain.
When your tooth is chipped or broken due to a fall or accident, seek the medical attention as soon as possible. The earlier dental treatment is sought, the chance of saving the tooth is better. Small breaks can be fixed by using tooth colored white fillings, while larger ones may need root canal treatment and crown.
Knocked out / Lost Tooth
A dentist often can fix a tooth that is knocked out subsequent to a fall or accident, provided the tooth is intact and in good condition. The root can reattach to the same socket if the tooth is put back at the earliest, preferably within ten minutes, or sometimes even within 2 hours.
So, remember, in such a situation, as a back -up plan, place the tooth in cold milk and get it to the dentist without delay.
Bitten Lip / Tongue
If you have sustained a serious bite injury on your lip or tongue and it is consistently bleeding, apply pressure to the wound with a clean cloth and seek professional medical attention. An ice pack can also be used to reduce swelling. If the bleeding doesn’t stop, you should go the emergency room at a closest hospital.
Item Stuck in Your Teeth
Having something stuck in your teeth can be extremely irritating and uncomfortable. If dental floss doesn’t do the trick, call your dentist to make an appointment. Avoid using any sharp or pointy items as it can scratch your teeth or hurt your gums.
