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.
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.
