In the following article, we’ll discuss some examples of emergencies that may have you wondering whether or not you need to make an emergency trip to the dentist.
Examples of Emergencies
If you’re experiencing severe and ongoing pain, extensive tissue bleeding or you need to save a tooth, these are all considered dental emergencies and should be looked at swiftly.
- Knocked out tooth – If you have a tooth that has been accidentally knocked out, the best course of action is to first, attempt to place the tooth back in its socket and bite down. In the case that this doesn’t work, place the tooth in a small container of milk and call your dentist immediately.
- Loose tooth – If you have a tooth that has come out of place or is loose, schedule an appointment with your dentist for the next possible time. Attempt to align the tooth back in place.
- Chipped, cracked or fractured teeth – Chipped teeth must be fixed as soon as possible to prevent anymore chipping.
