  • What is a dental emergency?

    A dental emergency is any situation involving severe pain, injury, or infection in the mouth that requires immediate attention. Common dental emergencies include severe toothache, knocked-out or broken teeth, abscesses, infections causing swelling or fever, and injuries to the gums or soft tissues of the mouth. Prompt treatment is essential to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and protect your overall oral health.

  • What’s the best way to handle a dental emergency?

    The best way to handle a dental emergency is to stay calm and contact your emergency dentist immediately. If a tooth is knocked out, try to gently place it back in the socket without touching the root, or keep it in a container of milk or saliva until you can see the dentist. For a broken tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. In case of severe toothache, rinse with warm water and use over-the-counter pain relief if needed. For soft tissue injuries, rinse your mouth with salt water and apply gentle pressure to stop any bleeding. Seeking prompt, professional care is crucial to address the issue and prevent further complications.

  • What should I do if I have a knocked out tooth?

    If you have a knocked-out tooth, act quickly and follow these steps:

    1. Handle the Tooth Carefully: Pick up the tooth by the crown (the top part) and avoid touching the root to prevent damage.
    2. Rinse the Tooth: If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse it with milk or saline solution, but do not scrub or use soap.
    3. Reinsert the Tooth if Possible: Try to place the tooth back into its socket, ensuring it’s facing the right way. Hold it in place with gentle pressure or by biting down on a clean cloth or gauze.
    4. Keep the Tooth Moist: If reinsertion is not possible, keep the tooth moist by placing it in a container of milk, saliva, or a tooth-preservation solution.
    5. Seek Immediate Dental Care: Contact your emergency dentist immediately, as prompt treatment within 30 minutes increases the chances of saving the tooth.

    Acting quickly and seeking professional help is crucial for the best outcome.
