What Are The Most Common Dental Emergencies?
There are a number of different kinds of dental emergencies. Cracked, broken, loose, or knocked-out teeth caused by impact injuries during contact sports, car accidents, or a bad fall are considered emergencies.
Other common dental emergencies are caused by the failure of an older piece of dental work. If your dental crown gets pulled out while you’re eating or if your filling is becoming loose, these situations are also considered a dental emergency.
Infected teeth or severe toothaches are also reasons to come in for an emergency appointment. In general, a dental emergency is any dental issue causing you pain and discomfort that you can’t treat on your own.
When Should I Get Emergency Dental Treatment?
In general, it’s best to get treatment within 12 hours of the onset of symptoms. However, for a knocked-out tooth, it is best to see a dentist within an hour in order to save the tooth.
As a rule, as soon as you recover from your injury or notice your dental emergency, you should contact Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care for an emergency appointment.
What Can I Do While I Wait for My Appointment?
After you’ve scheduled your appointment, you can do a few things to make yourself more comfortable while you wait.
If your mouth is bleeding, you should use sterile gauze or cotton swabs/balls to absorb the blood. Your mouth may bleed quite profusely, but this should stop if you apply pressure with the cotton for about 15-30 minutes. If it does not stop after an hour, consider visiting urgent care or the emergency room.
To treat swelling, ice packs can be applied to the exterior of the mouth, and some pain relief can be provided by over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Note that aspirin should not be used when treating an oral injury since it is a blood thinner and can prevent proper clotting.
