What To Do During a Dental Emergency
When an accident happens, it’s important to know what is considered a dental emergency. Trauma, especially to the face and mouth, can be painful, confusing, and distracting. Oral trauma often requires immediate attention.
Losing a Tooth – If one of your natural teeth is knocked out or falls out, it’s important to call us right away. If you can find your tooth, do not tough the root. You may gently rinse it and place it back in the original socket or hold the tooth in your cheek, between your cheek and remaining teeth. You can also put the tooth in a glass of milk.
Broken of Fractured Tooth – When a tooth breaks or becomes fractured, internal damage may occur, which requires immediate treatment. You can call Glen Brooke Dental right away if this happens. While you wait to be seen, you may rinse your mouth with warm water and reduce swelling with an ice pack.
Severe Toothache – Oral pain should not be ignored and may be a sign of an underlying issue. Oral pain could be caused by several problems, including damage, disease, and infection. Call Glen Brooke Dental to set up an appointment as soon as possible to avoid further risk.
Damage or Loss of Restorations – If you lose or damage a restoration, such as a filling or crown, re-injury could occur. In these situations, it’s important to call Glen Brooke Dental right away to set up an appointment.
