No matter how much prepared you are, accidents happen. Dental emergencies are no exception. A dental emergency is sudden and unexpected. Some emergencies are relatively obvious in their urgency, like an infection, tooth decay, trauma, toothache, knocked out tooth, or facial swelling and so on.
Here are a few common reasons to utilize emergency dental care:
Forcibly Removed Tooth
Whether it was knocked out, pulled out or any other force exerted that resulted in the teeth coming out, it definitely requires immediate dental care. If you keep practicing good aftercare and visit the dentist, the tooth can actually be reinserted. This includes cleaning the tooth properly.
Tooth That Is Out of Aligned
If something happens and your tooth gets out of alignment, you will have to visit an emergency dental care office as soon as possible. Meanwhile, you can just try to put the tooth back to its original position. Make sure not to force it back or use too much pressure.
If one of your teeth becomes chipped, it constitutes a dental emergency. If it does not hurt, you don’t need to see an emergency dentist. If your tooth is cracked or fractured or you experience intense pain, you will need an emergency dental care. Some fractures are so severe that the tooth is unable to be saved and need to be pulled and replaced.
