Like all other emergencies and accidents, dental emergencies are equally unpredictable and inevitable. You can never know when a dental emergency can hit you or any of your family members. However, any dental emergency (from a simple toothache to injured gums or teeth) can lead to severe complications in future and hence, must not be ignored. If you ignore a dental emergency, then you are increasing your risk of potentially permanent damage along with the need for more extensive and expensive treatment in the future. Thus, when faced with a dental emergency, you must seek medical attention from a professional.

When are emergency dental services needed?
Emergency dental services might be needed for several oral problems. Here is a list of some of those problems and what to do when such a problem arises.
Toothaches – If you are experiencing a severe toothache, you must rinse your mouth with warm water and floss immediately to eliminate any food particles between your teeth. If you are experiencing swelling as well, apply a cold compress from the outside. Never take any medication without professional supervision. Contact us as soon as possible.
Teeth that have been broken or chipped – The first thing you must do is save any piece of the tooth that you can see. Then, rinse your mouth with warm water. In case of bleeding, apply gauze to the area until it stops. You may also apply a cold compress to any swollen area from outside. Call us right away.
A tooth that has been knocked out – Retrieve the tooth and hold it by the crown part. Rinse your mouth with warm water. If you can, try placing the tooth back in its position but do not force it. If it’s not possible, then place your tooth in a container of milk or water with a pinch of table salt and see us within an hour of the incident.
Other incidents – Other cases which require emergency dental services are partially dislodged tooth, objects stuck in between teeth, lost a dental filling or dental crown, broken or damaged braces, loose brackets, abscess, broken jaw, and bitten tongue or lip.
