Emergencies are an inevitable part of life and being prepared can make all the difference in the outcome of an emergency. Dental emergencies are no different than medical emergencies. Understanding what needs to be done in the event of an emergency dental situation can ensure that the victim retains the health of their teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues of the mouth. Regardless if you are faced with addressing a knocked-out tooth, broken dental work, or a tongue laceration, these emergency dental tips can help you achieve the best outcome in a bad situation.
When to See a Dentist
In a dental emergency, even if you have no insurance, it is important to see a dentist in Dalton as soon as possible. Many dentists leave openings in their schedules to accommodate dental emergencies. Time is of the essence in some cases—getting to the dentist can minimize or prevent any potential damage.
Tooth Out of Position
Emergency dental cases include injury to the mouth, such as tears, puncture wounds, or lacerations to the lips, cheek, and tongue. These injuries may need to be immediately addressed by the hospital emergency room and then followed up with treatment by your dentist. Wounds of the mouth should be rinsed immediately with warm water and a soft cloth or gauze should be used to stop any bleeding. If there is swelling, but no bleeding, use a cold compress to reduce swelling. Seek emergency dental attention immediately.
