Common Dental Emergencies – Knowledge is Key

dca-blog_dental-emergencies-first-aid-kit

How you handle the first few minutes of a dental emergency can determine the fate of your tooth. The advice listed below can help you protect your oral and general health when emergencies strike. Getting emergency dental treatment as soon as possible is always important, especially if the incident involves head trauma or bleeding. If you don’t have access to an emergency dentist, visit your local emergency room department for help.

Knocked-Out Tooth

  • Attempt to replace the tooth in its socket.
  • If that’s not possible, place the tooth between your gums and cheek, or in milk.
  • Get emergency dental care immediately.

Cracked Tooth

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water immediately.
  • Use a cold compress to reduce and prevent swelling.
  • Visit your dentist in Ocala as soon as possible.

Lip or Tongue Bite

  • Clean the wound and the area around it with warm water.
  • Apply pressure to reduce bleeding.
  • Use a cold compress to reduce swelling.
  • For large bites or heavy bleeding, contact your dentist or go to an emergency room.

Toothache

  • Rinse with warm water.
  • Floss to remove foreign objects between teeth.
  • Do not chew aspirin or place it on your tooth.
  • Contact your dentist if pain persists.

Foreign Object Lodged Between Teeth

  • Attempt to remove the object with dental floss. Never use a sharp instrument.
  • If it impedes normal function, seek emergency dental treatment.

To avoid a dental emergency, never use your teeth to open or cut non-food objects, wear a mouth guard during sports activities, and refrain from chewing hard objects such as popcorn kernels, hard candies, and ice.
