Common Emergency Dentistry Situations – Tips and Advise
It is important to know about the most common emergency dentistry situations and what can immediately done, before going to have the dental emergency checked by our dentists. The first-aid steps that will be done can spell the difference between a saved tooth with a serious problem averted, or a complicated dental problem.
Here are some of the most common emergency dentistry situations, and some tips on what can be done as first-aid measures:
What is a Toothache?
“Toothache” usually refers to pain around the teeth or jaws primarily as a result of a dental condition. In most instances, toothaches are caused by tooth problems, such as a dental cavity, a cracked tooth, an exposed tooth root, or gum disease. However, disorders of the jaw joint (temporo-mandibular joint) can also cause pain that is referred to as “toothache.” The severity of a toothache can range from chronic and mild to sharp and excruciating. The pain may be aggravated by chewing or by cold or heat. A thorough oral examination, which includes dental X-rays, can help determine whether the toothache is coming from a tooth or jaw problem and the cause.
Common dental causes of toothaches include dental cavities, dental abscess, gum disease, irritation of the tooth root, cracked tooth syndrome, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, impaction, and eruption.
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth can be the result of the following: accidental falls, biting hard on very chewy/hard food, vehicular accidents, slipping or falling down accidentally, physical fights, and direct trauma to the head/face area due to sports.
Any tooth that is lost whether a milk tooth or permanent should be dealt with in the soonest possible time.
Time plays a crucial role when it comes to knocked out teeth, so it is important to get the patient (and the tooth that has been knocked out) to a dentist as soon as possible. This is because the tooth may still have a chance to be reinserted, if not a lot of time has passed since the tooth has been knocked out of the socket.
If possible, look for the tooth that has been knocked out, and keep it clean; it is also advisable to avoid touching the tooth on the root part. Make sure that the tooth is clean, and if possible – insert it again into the tooth socket on the way to a dentist. If inserting the tooth back into the socket is not possible, put the tooth instead in a receptacle with milk – and bring it (and of course, the patient) immediately to the dentist.
Lost Dental Filling
Lost dental filling can lead to a very uncomfortable experience. Bring the patient to a dentist as soon as possible, so the dental filling can be replaced.
Lost Dental Crown – What should you do in case your crown falls off?
You have to keep your crown secure so you can have it re-cemented as soon as you can to prevent further damage. Sometimes, a root canal treatment is recommended.
Injury to Soft Mouth Tissues (Gums)
The soft tissues include those found on the lips, gums, tongue, the inside of cheeks; the soft tissues in these areas are prone to bleeding when injured, or when exposed to blunt trauma. Rinsing the mouth or gargling with salt-water solution can alleviate the discomfort; the affected area can also be applied with pressure, using sterilized gauze pads. If the bleeding does not stop after a few minutes of applying pressure, it is best to bring the patient to see a dentist immediately.
