What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is an unforeseen event or injury that threatens your oral health. Whether you know the cause of your emergency or are just in a lot of pain, the team at All Bright Dental can evaluate the extent of your injury and find the best possible solution quickly.
Getting to the dentist as soon as possible after a dental emergency occurs improves your chances of keeping all of your natural teeth and reducing your pain.
Even if all of the repairs for your tooth can’t take place right away, the team can find a fast solution to hold you over until you can undergo the necessary treatment.
What are some common dental emergencies?
Some of the most common causes of dental emergencies are acute injuries that happen suddenly. Impact sports and car accidents are two of the top causes of injuries that require emergency dental care.
However, injuries aren’t the only types of dental emergencies. You should call the 24-hour emergency line at All Bright Dental for any of these complications:
- Broken teeth
- Knocked-out teeth
- Loose adult teeth
- Lost fillings
- Lost crowns
- Excessive mouth bleeding
- Intense or persistent temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain or stiffness
- Intense unexplained toothache
- Broken braces
- Tooth abscess (pus pocket)
It’s always a good idea to call for emergency care if you are in a lot of pain and can’t find relief at home.
How can I reduce my dental pain while waiting for emergency dental care?
Even if there isn’t much time to wait between the onset of your dental emergency and your visit to All Bright Dental, finding relief for your pain is probably your number one priority.
To keep you comfortable until you can make it to the office, the team at All Bright Dental recommends using a cold compress or ice pack near the injury to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Once you make it to the office, your dentist may prescribe you medications to help manage the pain throughout your treatment.
If your injury results in a knocked-out tooth, you should rinse the tooth and hold it in its socket until you can get to All Bright Dental for repairs. You may be able to keep your original tooth in some cases.
