Preventing A Dental Emergency
Although dental emergencies can happen to anyone, at any time; in some cases, dental emergencies are preventable. It is important to visit your dentist at least twice a year for preventive care exams. During a preventive care exam, your dentist can thoroughly examine your teeth, mouth, and gums for any signs of dysfunction.
If there is a structural issue with your teeth such as TMJ or another bite disorder, Dr. Pop can create a treatment plan that is right for you. When underlying dental problems go unaddressed, it may lead to worn teeth, cracked teeth, and eventually tooth loss. The main focus is to build a strong, stable smile to promote long-term oral health success.
If you play sports, remember to always wear your custom mouthguard. Mouthguards can protect your teeth from so many injuries to your teeth during contact sports.
Emergency Dentistry FAQs
What should I do if a tooth gets knocked out?
The first thing to do if one of your teeth fall out is to attempt to find the lost tooth. If it is dirty you can rinse it with milk and attempt to put it back into place. Call your dentist immediately and let them know of your situation.
The sooner you can get in to see your dentist, the better chance you have of preserving the tooth. We recommend that patients see their dentist within 30 minutes of their tooth being knocked out.
What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
If you have a dental emergency and are unable to reach your regular dentist for any reason, you will want to assess your options. If you cannot reach your regular dentist because you are out of town then you may want to attempt to get home sooner. Wait until you get home to have your issues addressed, or contact a different dentist and reach out to yours when you can get in touch with them.
What is categorized as a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is a broad term that can categorize many dental issues, most needing urgent medial attention. A dental emergency is any swelling, intense pain, or discomfort that the patient cannot fix by themselves. Some of the most common dental emergencies are toothaches, broken or chipped teeth, a knocked-out tooth, lost dental fillings or crowns, or any intense swelling of the gums and mouth.
