Here are some suggestions you should keep in mind during a dental emergency.
A dental abscess
A dental abscess can cause unbearable pain. It can also be accompanied by swelling or fever and not treating it can become a serious problem for oral and general health. For this reason, you should contact your emergency dentist as soon as possible. Meanwhile, it can help you soothe the pain by rinsing your mouth with water and salt.
If you have broken a tooth, be sure to keep the pieces that have jumped. The dentist may be able to reposition them in place. Try not to touch or take the tooth by the root part, pass it some water without scrubbing and keep it in a glass of milk until you get to the dentist.
If you can get to the dentist in less than an hour, the options to save the tooth are much greater, so you should hurry to contact a dentist who can take care of you.
The dental pain can be caused by various causes. Among others, can cause caries, an injury, an ulcer or sinus problems. Many problems related to dental pain should be treated quickly to avoid permanent damage. Rinse your mouth with water and floss to remove any food particles that may be causing further irritation. The most important thing is that you call the dentist quickly.
When you suffer a lesion in the gum, lip, cheeks or tongue that causes bleeding, hold a cold cloth in the area for about ten minutes. If you cannot stop the bleeding, you may need to go to the nearest hospital emergency. Once you have been treated, you should ask for an appointment with your dentist to observe the situation and verify that recovery is on track. It will also ensure that other areas of the mouth have not been affected.
Problems related to orthodontics
When you wear braces, there is a chance that one of them will break or take off. This can cause an injury to your soft tissues and even damage your teeth. Use orthodontic wax to prevent appliances and braces from affecting any tissue. Ask for an appointment with the orthodontist to correct the damage suffered by the braces and in case you suffer an injury, go as soon as possible to the dental clinic.
Remember that oral health also affects general health. Treat these dental emergencies with the importance they deserve and if you have any questions or concerns, contact any of our dental clinics to solve it.
