Effective Handling of a Dental Emergency

Dental Emergencies

In addition to being extremely painful and inconvenient, an accidental injury to the teeth that is not properly treated by a dentist can lead to permanent tooth loss. For that reason, it is important for everyone to learn a few key tips about what to do in a dental emergency. By having the right information at hand, it is possible to secure the emergency dental care required and often preserve teeth that have sustained serious injury.

Remember that nearly every dentist in Mount Dora keeps time open during the day to treat dental emergency cases. If you suffer a dental injury, contact an emergency dentist and give a detailed explanation about what happened. An emergency dentist will likely offer an affordable payment plan, so don’t let a lack of dental insurance keep you from seeking the professional dental care you need.

A toothache should never be neglected, because it is a signal that something is wrong. If a toothache occurs, rinse your mouth with warm water and then gently floss to remove any food debris that could be causing the pain. Do not place aspirin or other pain relievers directly on the tooth or gums, as it may cause burning. Then, contact an affordable dentist in Mount Dora immediately.

If a permanent tooth has been knocked out, you will require immediate emergency dental care, but before you get to the dentist, hold the tooth by its crown and rinse off the root with water. Try to place the tooth back into its socket, but do not remove any attached tissue. If that does not work, submerge the tooth in a container of milk and immediately take it with you to an emergency dentist.

If you have a broken tooth, promptly rinse your mouth with warm water. You must see an emergency dentist as soon as possible, but in the interim, a cold compress can help to minimize any swelling.

If you bit your tongue or lip, gently clean the injured area and apply cold compresses to alleviate swelling. If you are unable to stop the bleeding, go to the closest hospital emergency room.

If any dental injury causes severe pain, or if you have an obviously cracked tooth or suspect that your jaw is broken, visit an emergency dentist right away.
