HANDLING DENTAL EMERGENCIES

All types of dental emergencies can be potentially serious, especially injuries to the teeth or gums. If ignored, these oral injuries can increase the risk of permanent damage. This may even lead to an extensive and costly treatment later on.

When you have a dental emergency, it is best to visit us as soon as possible or book an appointment through our 24/7 online scheduling system. In the meantime, here are a few tips on how to properly handle some common dental emergencies.

  • Toothaches: If you are suffering from a severe toothache, thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water. Gently floss between teeth to remove any food that may be stuck.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: If your tooth has been knocked out completely, try to retrieve the tooth if possible, holding it only by the crown. Put the tooth back in place in your mouth, but do not force it into the socket. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, place it into a small container of milk.
  • Broken or Chipped Tooth: If you have a broken or chipped your tooth, you may experience bleeding and swelling. Try to save any pieces of the tooth that may have broken off, and place a piece of gauze over the tooth to absorb any blood. Swelling can be reduced with a cold compress applied to the outside of the mouth.
  • Abscess: A dental abscess is a type of infection that occurs around the root of the tooth or in the space between the gums and teeth. If left untreated, an abscess can damage the teeth and the surrounding tissues. The infection may also spread to other areas of the body.

Most permanent damage to teeth, gums, and soft oral tissues can be reduced or eliminated by visiting our emergency dentist soon after the accident or problem occurs. Contact us at 704-752-7602 to schedule a prompt appointment.
