Ways to Tell When a Dental Problem Requires an Emergency Dentist

If you suffer a dental injury, does it need emergency treatment or can you wait to see your dentist? Use this helpful guide to know the treatment you need.

When You’ve Lost a Filling or Crown

If this happens to you, it’s probably a sign that your tooth is badly decayed. When a filling or crown comes off, the tooth becomes very sensitive. If not repaired quickly, this can lead to further damage, so you should immediately get to an emergency dentist.

You’ve Cracked or Fractured Your Tooth

No matter how well you take care of your teeth, this damage can easily happen from grinding, biting, or an accident. Since the problem can only worsen and harm the root of the tooth, you’ll want to find emergency dental services Blue Bell to avoid further damage. To minimize pain and swelling while you find an emergency dentist Blue Bell, follow these simple tips:

  1. Rinse your mouth and the shard of the tooth with warm water.
  2. Apply a cold compress on your cheek to soothe and reduce any swelling.
  3. Get to the emergency dentist as quickly as possible.

If You’ve Knocked out Your Tooth

When this occurs, there’s damage to your tooth’s supporting tissues and nerves. But if you rush to seek emergency dental services Blue Bell, you may be able to reduce any dental damage and have the tooth reattached. Follow these smart steps:

  1. Call an emergency dentist Blue Bell
  2. Try to find the tooth and gently rinse it under warm water.
  3. Do not touch the tooth’s root.
  4. Keep the tooth moist by placing it back in its socket or keeping it in a cup of milk.
  5. Take the tooth to the emergency dentist Blue Bell quickly.
