Common Dental Emergencies
The most common dental emergencies tend to be damage to the tooth or jaw. There is a host of reasons for how this can occur. Dental caries, a bacteria affecting the teeth, can result in cavities, abscesses, infections, or cellulitis. Treating these quickly will reduce pain and save you from potentially severe consequences. Other common dental emergencies are broken, loose, or separated teeth. While it is possible to treat these injuries, you must see a dentist immediately so that the damage doesn’t worsen or become permanent. In the case of a tooth that has been separated, or knocked out, placing it back in the socket if possible, or if not a glass of milk, can help save the tooth for reimplantation. Another cause to see a dentist promptly is if there is damage to existing orthodontics. Such as braces wires breaking or becoming loose. Address this quickly to avoid any cuts to the mouth or gums, and to make sure the treatment continues.
If you must wait to visit a dentist, salt water rinses may help keep an infection from spreading. While anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen, and topical applications of numbing agents may help reduce pain. These are only temporary measures and do not reduce the need to see a dentist immediately. Delaying a dental visit when there is severe pain, infection, or other concerns can result in serious damage to your health. Infections of the tooth or gums, when left untreated, can result in systemic illness that can affect your organs, including your heart. There are cases of heart damage resulting in open-heart surgery as the result of delaying dental treatment.
