Emergency Dentistry Service

Before searching for an emergency Dentist, It is important to know that what kind of injuries really required an emergency dental care, so you can make sure that your family's teeth are taken care of while avoiding any unnecessary trips to the emergency room. Accidents can happen at all times, it depends that when it is happening, whether in the day or at night. Some of the oral injuries may need immediate treatment, while others can wait until your dentist's normal business hours.

Some common types of mouth injuries include cracked, broken, or knocked out teeth, which can be a result of biting on a piece of food that is too hard, a sports-related injury, a fall towards the mouth, or any other type of accident. Depending on the severity of the injury and where the tooth is located, it is possible that a chipped tooth or minor fracture can wait for the normal dental clinic’s hours.

However, if the crack is severe, there is a large piece of the tooth missing, or the tooth has a damaged nerve or is knocked out completely, if there are problems like this, immediately you should seek for a medical attention.

While you are waiting, if the tooth is knocked out, try to handle it as far as possible. See if you can put the tooth back in the socket, biting down on moistened gauze or a wet tea bag can help, that would be great. It can fix up your teeth again. Make sure that you are very careful that not to swallow your tooth.If you are not able to keep your tooth to stay in the socket for the journey to the dentist or emergency room, rinse it off to get rid of any visible dirt and keep your tooth in a cup or a container of milk or your saliva until a professional can see you. You can apply a cold, wet compress to help in stopping the bleeding coming from the tooth socket.

Sometimes the problem won't be as clear-cut as a knocked out or broken tooth; you may find yourself in a severe tooth pain, from an abscessed tooth, for example. If you think you need emergency dental care, call your dentist's office first. The clinic may be able to get you in for an appointment quickly, as dentists often leave slots in their schedules open for such kind of emergency cases.

Even if you know that the clinic is closed, still go ahead and call. Some emergency number or instructions would be present over there on the answering machine. If none of these options work, go to the nearest emergency room. The staff there can help you in determining whether the injury can wait for your dentist or not and can possibly provide you with some pain medication to help alleviate symptoms in the meantime.
