What to do during dental emergency:
Want to know how you can take care of your dental emergencies in a calm and effective manner? Dental emergencies can occur to anyone and at any time. Thus, when such emergency occurs, see a walk in dentist near you as soon as possible to get the necessary treatment and get rid of the discomfort. Dental trauma can be reduced by taking proper action before it is too late. Learn more about handling your common dental emergencies.
Toothache: Floss the teeth carefully and then rinse your mouth with lukewarm water to remove the suspended debris. A cold compress to the cheek can resolve the swelling. You should avoid applying painkiller gels to the problem area as those may burn the gum tissues while causing additional discomfort. Don’t use painkiller gels near the sore tooth as the medication can burn the gums and cause further pain. You need to see a dentist as soon as possible.
Chipped / Broken Teeth: It is important to collect the broken pieces of the tooth and book an appointment with a dentist on emergency basis. Meanwhile, it is also important to control the bleeding. You can rinse the mouth well with lukewarm water and then place gauze at the site of injury. If there’s swelling and pain in the cheek, apply a cold compress.
Knocked-out teeth: Modern dentistry allows full restoration of a knocked out tooth or teeth, provided the treatment starts within an hour and a half after the incident. Collect the knocked out tooth and while doing so, make sure to handle it just by the crown or the top part. Do not scrub it, nor try to wash away the dirt by yourself. Just drop it in a cup of cold milk or water (again make sure the liquid is neither lukewarm nor hot) and rush to the nearest emergency dentist with it.
Partially dislodged (extruded) tooth: A cold compress is effective to minimise the pain. Common painkillers that are available over the counter at the chemist shops prove helpful to keep away the pain. Visit your dentist as soon as you can.
Lost filling: As a stopgap solution, get some dental temporary filling material from the neighbourhood chemist. Even sugar-free chewing gums can be used to fill up the cavity for the time being. Your dentist will replace the lost filling on emergency basis.
Lost crown: You need an emergency dental visit to resolve this issue. Don’t forget to carry the crown with you. If it’s possible, apply a little dental cement, denture adhesive or toothpaste to the inner surface of the crown and try to wear it back on the teeth again.
Trapped objects between teeth: Try removing the objects with a dental floss. If your attempt doesn’t succeed, contact your dentist right away.
Broken braces or wires: Rinse the mouth thoroughly with salt water to ease the pain. Try pushing the wire back into its place with a soft eraser, but don’t push too hard. Visit your dentist if the wire is broken or refuses to get back in its place.
Loose brackets and bands: Loose braces can be set temporarily using orthodontic wax before your dentist fixes them. It is normal for a band to come loose; preserve the band and show it to your dentist to get it fixed.
Abscesses: Abscesses are nasty infections that develop at the tooth root. Potentially, the problem can lead to tooth loss. Visit your dentist right away if there’s any visible or painful swelling in the mouth. Meanwhile, you can rinse the mouth with lukewarm salt water to minimise the pain and the pus formation.
Soft tissue injuries: Injuries to the soft tissues in the mouth bleed very easily. These injuries require immediate clinical intervention. As first-aid treatment, salt water rinsing helps in minimising the pain, while applying gauze or cold compress to the affected site helps control the bleeding.
