What Are Dental Emergencies?
Anytime you notice an abnormality in your mouth, please visit your dentist as soon as possible. The following scenarios are dental emergencies that require prompt treatment:
- A knocked-out tooth – if you have lost a tooth in an accident or injury, it’s essential to visit as soon as you can. This increases the chance of us saving your tooth. If you cannot visit immediately, you can store your tooth in milk to help prolong it.
- Bleeding gums – if you notice you have consistently bleeding gums, it can indicate gum disease.
- A broken dental crown or filling – if you have a broken dental restoration, it increases the risk of bacteria accumulating in your mouth and causing an oral infection.
- Soft tissue injuries – if you have injured your tongue, lip, or cheek, our dentist can examine you and provide treatment.
- Chipped or cracked teeth – the longer you leave a damaged tooth, the more likely bacteria can accumulate inside your tooth and cause an infection.
- Trapped objects – if you have a foreign object stuck in your mouth, please visit us as soon as possible so our dentist can safely remove it.
What Are the Treatments Available for Dental Emergencies?
The treatment can vary depending on how severe your emergency is and what caused it. The following are common treatments that can be performed:
- A filling
- A root canal
- Porcelain veneers
- A dental crown
- Extractions in very severe cases
