Types of Dental Emergencies

So, what constitutes a dental emergency? When a toothache or another dental emergency strikes, the oral surgeon at Premier Dental Partners Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center is trained to quickly respond by connecting you with a dentist who can give prompt relief. Our office handles a wide range of emergency dental issues, which may include:

  • Toothaches- Severe pain is a sign that something is amiss. The longer you wait, the more difficult (and expensive) the solution. Rinsing out your mouth with warm saltwater will hopefully dislodge any trapped food between your teeth. If you are experiencing facial swelling, use a cold compress and acetaminophen for temporary relief.
  • Cut Tongue, Lip, or Cheek- For bleeding, apply pressure with sterile gauze to reduce the chances of infection and complication. Use your better judgment as well; if the cut looks significant, and bleeding does not seem to be subsiding, contact an emergency room.
  • Broken or Cracked Tooth- Not sure what to do for a broken tooth?  Start by rinsing the area with warm water. Place a cold compress over the site of the injury. If you can, recover any broken tooth fragments. If possible, save the tooth fragment and rinse both your mouth and the salvaged tooth pieces with warm water.
  • Knocked Out Permanent Tooth- Recover the tooth and hold it by the crown (top), not the root. Do not over-clean or over-handle the tooth. Put and hold the tooth in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If reinsertion is impossible, carry the tooth in a cup of milk or water. Stopping the bleeding is most important. Don’t remove any attached tissue, they help re-secure the tooth.
  • Abscesses- Over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen can provide temporary relief as well. Use only as directed. An abscess is a serious infection that typically occurs in the gumline around the teeth. If left alone, infections might spread to the body. Visit your emergency dentist as soon as possible if you discover pain or swelling in the gums.

With emergency dental care, you can spend less time worrying about if the dentist is open and more time fixing the problem at hand!

How to Avoid Dental Emergencies

Accidents are unplanned, and therefore hard to prepare for. The best option for staying in front of a dental emergency is to be preventative. Schedule regular exams with your general dentist every six months and continue your regimen of good oral hygiene. Brush at least twice a day, floss once per day, and avoid brittle foods like hard candy that may damage your teeth!
