What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency can happen for several reasons. Playing sports, physical activity, and accidents can all be the cause of trauma to the mouth and jaw. Dental emergencies can also occur as the result of a building issue, like gum disease or tooth decay. If you experience any of the following, call our office to set up an emergency appointment:
- Excessive bleeding in your mouth
- Severe tooth or gum pain
- Partially or fully dislodged teeth
- Soft tissue injury or laceration
What to Do in the Case of A Dental Emergency?
If you suffer an injury to the mouth, teeth, or jaw, and there is bleeding, apply careful pressure to stop the bleeding. Clean any wounds in the mouth with warm water. If a tooth has been dislodged, store it in the mouth if possible, otherwise keep it in a clean container, submerged in saliva or milk to maintain moisture. Call our offices as soon as it is safe to do so to set up an emergency appointment. Our dental team can give you further advice from there.
