If you have a toothache or chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or an injury, it can be a traumatic experience. It’s very important that you see a dentist immediately, even if the tooth is just slightly chipped. And if you have knocked out a tooth or several teeth, the sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better because there is a chance that the teeth could be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.
It’s very important that you keep the knocked out tooth clean and avoid handling the root. In some cases you may be able to put the tooth back into the socket by biting down on a clean paper towel for around 15-20 minutes.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Loose or lost fillings can expose the sensitive inner layers of the tooth, leading to discomfort and increased risk of decay. Emergency dental care may involve replacing the filling to restore the tooth’s structure and function. The dentist will clean and prepare the affected area before placing a new filling to protect the tooth from further damage.
Dental Abscess: A dental abscess is a pocket of pus that forms due to a bacterial infection. Emergency dental care for an abscess may involve drainage of the abscess, prescription antibiotics to control infection, and treatment of any underlying dental issues contributing to the abscess. Pain relief techniques may also be provided to alleviate discomfort.
