Sometimes despite every precaution taken, accidents happen. For such cases as these, we provide emergency dentistry services. Some of the most common emergency dental occurrences are chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and dislodged teeth.
What to Do First
There are some things you can do immediately after an injury that could help minimize the pain. For example, with a cracked tooth, rinsing your mouth with warm water can be helpful in reducing pain, and a cold compress on the face near the location of the injury can help reduce swelling.
For severe toothaches, rinsing your mouth with warm water might help, and sometimes flossing can remove particles caught between teeth that can cause pain.
If these home remedies do not help, then come in to see us as soon as possible, and we will see what can be done to help your emergency situation.
Why Emergency Dentistry?
Just like any other medical profession, dentists are the experts in their field. That being the case, if you are ever in a hospital emergency room with a dental emergency, chances are you will be referred to a dentist. A dental professional can immediately diagnose your condition.
