What to Do Should an Oral Emergency Arise?

Posted on 9/7/2020 by Candice
What to Do Should an Oral Emergency Arise?There are a number of reasons that a person might need to get in touch with one of our dentists or other oral professionals suddenly and without warning. In the case of such an emergency, the things that you do can make quite a bit of difference in how bad the problem becomes, as well as the long-term effects or results that it has. If you find yourself in one of these situations, the very first thing that you need to do is get in contact with us. Our knowledgeable staff can instruct you as to what you need to do specifically for your particular issue. But to give you a general idea of what constitutes one of these oral emergencies, as well as what type of actions you may have to take in regard to them, here is a little bit more information:

Dental Trauma and Response

Things such as a tooth that has been knocked out or loosened, cracked or fractured, shifted or jammed down into the gum, as well as any cuts or tears to the gums themselves are all good examples of occurrences which would qualify as an emergency. In any of these cases, again, the first thing you need to do is contact one of our staff members immediately following the incident. They will be able to guide you as to what you need to be doing before coming in, such as rinsing your mouth, handling or packing the lost tooth, as well as how to address lacerated or damaged gums.

So, if you are facing one of these or any other type of dental emergency, there is absolutely no time to waste getting in contact with us. In fact, you need to call our clinic before doing any of the tasks mentioned in the above section as they are only general suggestions and your individual case may require special instruction.
