What Is a Dental Emergency?

While brushing, flossing, and eating healthy are ways to help protect your teeth, sometimes dental emergencies are unavoidable. A dental emergency can be caused by many things including:

  • Accidents
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection

You’ll want to visit an emergency dentist if you have any of the following:

  • Traumatic injury to your mouth, jaw, or teeth
  • Severe pain 
  • Uncontrolled bleeding in your mouth
  • Severe swelling in your mouth, face, or neck

Dealing with Dental Emergencies

When you experience a dental emergency, your first step should be to call your dentist. At that time you can explain your symptoms, and our general dentists will work you into our schedule as early as possible. After your call, you’ll want to find ways to ease your pain and save any teeth that have been knocked out. The following are steps you can follow:

  • If you are in pain, you can take an over-the-counter pain medicine that works for you.
  • If there is swelling, you can put a cold compress against your face at the spot of the swollen area. 
  • If there is excess bleeding, you’ll want to apply gauze to try to slow the bleeding until you are able to visit your emergency dentist is Sidney.
  • If a tooth has fallen out, there is a chance it will take root again. Try to put it back into its socket, or store it in your cheek. If the socket is too swollen or you fear you’ll swallow your tooth, protect it in a container of cold milk. 
  • If something is stuck between your teeth, try using dental floss very gently to remove the object. Never use a sharp object to poke between your teeth.
  • If a filling has fallen out, put a piece of softened sugarless gum into the spot it fell from. This will protect the area for a short time and help reduce chances of pain.
