Types of Dental Emergencies:
There many types of dental emergencies, and knowing what to do for each one is important to preserve your smile. While some dental emergencies may begin with minor discomfort and worsen over time, others occur quite suddenly.
Toothache - A mild toothache may not require immediate care but should be addressed at your earliest convenience to avoid complications. However, when tooth pain becomes unbearable, you should contact our office right away so our dentist can see you as quickly. In the meantime, to help relieve pain and inflammation, place a cold pack on the cheek and take ibuprofen.
Chips and Cracks - Slightly chipped or cracked teeth may not warrant immediate dental care, but there are situations where you should seek professional care without delay. If part of your tooth breaks off, pick up the pieces, rinse them under lukewarm water, and contact Brampton Family Dental. Also, make sure to rinse your mouth to wash away any debris or bacteria that could compromise the site and cause additional complications. Use a cold pack and over-the-counter pain medicated as recommended.
Dislodged Tooth – A tooth that is knocked out (avulsed) must be gently rinsed and placed back into the socket, if possible. Cleanse tooth with warm water but do not to touch the root as this may decrease chances of successful reimplantation. It is important to keep the knocked-out tooth from drying out, and if you cannot place it back in the space, put the tooth a glass of milk, or lightly salted water. Call the dentist immediately and arrange to be seen within the hour if possible – if not go to the nearest emergency room.
