What Is a Dental Emergency?
Many people don’t know what a dental emergency is. After all, there are numerous situations that can cause oral discomfort. The trick is to consider whether or not the situation has a time limit, or needs to be remedied as soon as possible, so it doesn’t cause a more serious problem. Some of the most common dental emergencies include the following situations:
- When a permanent tooth is knocked out
- When you crack or break a tooth
- When your lacerate your gums, tongue, or other soft tissue and cannot stop the bleeding
- Intense pain in any part of the mouth
- When you injure or break your jaw
- When you have an infection that needs treatment
These situations often cannot wait for an appointment and instead need hasty care to help you get back on the path to oral wellness.
How to Prepare
If you are seeking emergency treatment, there are a couple of things you can do to be better prepared for the appointment. Although it is difficult, try not to panic. If you have had a tooth knocked out, try to find it and bring it with you. Avoid removing any tissue that is still attached, because there is a chance our dentist will be able to restore it to its rightful position.
When possible, try to bring someone with you. Some forms of treatment could require anesthetic, and it is necessary to have someone who can escort you home.
