7 Preparedness Tips for Dental Emergencies

Dental Emergencies

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends being prepared for dental emergencies to safeguard your teeth, gums, and mouth, no matter what life brings your way. A dental emergency, much like a traditional emergency, should not be ignored. If you experience an accident or injury that causes trauma to your teeth, gums, or mouth, contact an emergency dentist in Roswell immediately. In many cases, with the right course of action, you can save your tooth or prevent significant damage. Even if the pain becomes manageable or subsides, contact your dentist for help. Many dentists build time in their schedules to treat dental emergencies.

Use these seven tips to be prepared for any dental emergency:

  1. React fast, but carefully. If a tooth gets knocked out, find it and hold it by the crown only. Rinse the tooth with warm water, but do not scrub or remove any remaining tissue on the tooth. Place the tooth in a cup of milk or warm water with a dab of salt. Try to put the tooth back in the socket and hold it in place. If you can get to your dentist within an hour, the tooth may be able to be saved.
  2. For a broken tooth, gather any pieces of the tooth you can find. Then rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.  Visit a dentist in Roswell immediately.
  3. If a tooth or pieces of a tooth get dislodged or lost, gather the missing pieces before heading to an emergency dentist or hospital emergency room. In certain cases, your dentist may be able to restore the tooth.
  4. Broken wires from braces can irritate and cause damage to the surrounding tissue. Cover sharp ends of the broken wire with orthodontic wax or gauze. If a wire gets stuck in your tongue, gum, or cheek, get immediate treatment from your dentist—do not try to remove it yourself.
  5. If you have toothache pain, rinse your mouth with warm water and use dental floss to gently remove anything that may be trapped between your teeth that could be causing the pain. Do not apply aspirin to the tooth or gums. Contact your dentist in Roswell as soon as possible and describe your discomfort.
  6. A badly bitten tongue or lip should be treated by applying pressure with gauze or a cloth to stop bleeding and using a cold compress to reduce swelling. If there’s heavy bleeding, visit the emergency room right away.
  7. Broken or fractured jaws should be addressed immediately with a visit to the dentist’s office or hospital emergency room. Apply a cold compress en route to reduce swelling.

If you have a dental emergency, don’t skip going to the dentist, even when you think you can’t afford it.  You can find an affordable dentist in Roswell who will treat your dental emergency and provide a payment plan that will meet your financial needs. Failing to get emergency treatment can result in even more costly dental care in the future.
