What is deemed a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is usually a condition that is causing a person pain and discomfort. It can be distressing, there may be a loss of tooth function or it may get worse if it is left untreated. However, there are many different types of emergency dental care, such as broken braces, broken or chipped teeth, lost fillings, wisdom teeth pain, toothache or a sports injury.
Tooth knocked out completely?
If your tooth has been knocked out completely then it is really important that you see a dentist as soon as possible and ideally within an hour of it happening. This is where emergency dentists can be essential. One of the most important things is to keep the tooth moist. You can either keep it in your cheek or if possible place it back in the socket itself temporarily. If this is not an option, a good solution is to keep it in some milk or even contact lens solution.
In many cases, the tooth can be replanted and splinted in place but this success is dependent on the tooth being kept moist, undamaged and being seen by a dentist ASAP. You may at a later stage require root canal treatment and regular monitoring of the tooth will be required.
Your tooth doesn’t have to be knocked out for it to be an emergency.
