The most common dental emergency that our patients come across are:
Traumatic Dental Injuries
If you get your permanent tooth knocked-out or chipped, your dentist can still save it. Pick the tooth up without touching its root, gently clean it off with water, and put it back in its socket. Hold it gently in place and rush to the dental office immediately. If you are too afraid to place it back, then put it in a container of milk and go to your dentist.
Tooth Ache or Pain
Unbearable persisting tooth pain always signals that you need a quick visit to the dental office. The most common cause of tooth pain is untreated tooth decay, for which the infection later spreads through other parts of the tooth and also the gum tissue. Sometimes, the dentist might suggest undergoing a root canal treatment, which can relieve the pain by removing the infection caused deep inside the tooth. But in other cases, the option left could be extraction. Other times, the pain might be because of a loose filling or sensitive tooth.
You might require emergency treatment if you have injuries and infections in the soft tissues of your mouth. Sometimes due to injury caused while being involved in active sports, falls, or accidental bites can damage the tissues of the gums, tongue, or cheek lining. A periodontal (gum) abscess might also require immediate dental care.
