Dental Emergencies 101
We’ve treated a lot of dental emergencies. But, sometimes patients think what could fall under the dental-emergency category sometimes doesn’t. It’s possible for a regular toothache not to be a dental emergency and instead should be looked at for possible cavities. Severe toothaches, on the other hand, need prompt service. How do you know if you’re dealing with a dental emergency?
Below are the most common dental emergencies:
Tooth or teeth that have been knocked out
Missing crown, filling or other type of dental restoration device
We’d love to treat everyone who has minor toothaches, and we can. But, it’s important to know the distinction between what is and isn’t a dental emergency. With children, dental emergencies can be traumatic experiences for them. It’s easy to see why children are more susceptible to dental emergencies – they’re a lot more adventurous. We’ve seen many cases of children falling on the ground or slipping that results in their teeth being affected. Knowing there’s a dental office that can provide them with the best treatment should help keep you reassured in our expertise. You want to keep your family healthy and happy, and we’re committed to keeping their oral health in tip-top shape.
You can yourself prepare better by keeping items in a first-aid kit like a small container with accompanying lid, handkerchief, gauze, and a list of contacts and their phone numbers. Staying prepared is the first step in dealing with a dental emergency.
