Dental Emergencies Are Potentially Life Threatening

Dental emergencies can be painful and distressing, and it’s essential to know how to recognize and handle them promptly. Here are some common dental emergencies:

Persistent, severe toothaches may be caused by various issues, such as tooth decay, gum infections, or cracked teeth. Over-the-counter pain relief can help temporarily, but it’s crucial to see a dentist to address the underlying problem.

This can result from accidents or biting on hard objects. Save any broken tooth fragments and rinse your mouth with warm water. Contact a dentist as soon as possible for repair or replacement.

If a tooth is completely knocked out, handle it by the crown (top part), not the root. Rinse it gently if dirty, and try to reinsert it into the socket. If that’s not possible, store it in milk or a tooth preservation product and see a dentist immediately. Time is critical in this situation.

If a tooth is partially dislodged, try to reposition it by gently biting down on a clean cloth or gauze. This can help reduce discomfort. Seek immediate dental care.

A lost filling or crown can expose sensitive tooth structures. Over-the-counter dental cement or temporary filling material can be used as a short-term solution. Visit your dentist to replace the filling or crown.

An abscess is a painful, swollen pocket of pus usually caused by a bacterial infection. It can develop on the gums or at the root of a tooth. It’s important to seek dental care promptly, as abscesses can lead to serious health complications.

If your gums bleed while brushing or flossing, it might be a sign of gum disease. It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene and see a dentist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Trauma to the jaw or severe jaw pain might indicate a fracture or other issues. You should seek immediate medical attention in such cases.

If something gets stuck between your teeth and you can’t remove it with floss or a soft brush, avoid using sharp objects. Visit your dentist to have it safely removed.

Braces or other orthodontic appliances may cause discomfort or issues. Broken wires, brackets, or displaced appliances should be addressed by your orthodontist.

What to do when a tooth is knocked out:
  • Attempt to find the tooth
  • Immediately call us for an emergency appointment
  • Gently rinse, but do not scrub the tooth to remove dirt or debris
  • Place the clean tooth in your mouth between the cheek and gum
  • Do not attempt to replace the tooth into the socket. This could cause further damage
  • Get to a dentist as soon as possible. If it is within a half hour of the injury, it may be possible to re-implant the tooth
  • If it is not possible to store the tooth in the mouth of the injured person (e.g., a young child,) wrap the tooth in a clean cloth or gauze and immerse in milk

So Much Love from All Over Georgia
I absolutely loved my experience with Dr.Patel and her staff! My wisdom tooth extraction was so quick! I was surprised at how fast she was able to get the tooth out! They let me listen to music during the procedure and the tooth was out within a song and a half! Very pleased and so happy to have found this dentist!
