Types of dental emergencies
Dental emergencies can take various forms, each requiring immediate attention to address pain, prevent complications, and restore oral health. Here are different types of dental emergencies:
Intense, persistent tooth pain often indicates an infection or dental abscess that requires immediate treatment.
If a tooth is knocked out or broken, swift action can increase the chances of saving it. Rinse the tooth gently, place it back into the socket if possible, or keep it moist in milk and see a dentist immediately.
Accidents or trauma can cause cuts, tears, or injuries to the lips, tongue, or gums. Immediate dental attention is needed to address bleeding and ensure proper healing.
A lost filling or crown can expose sensitive parts of the tooth, causing pain and potential damage. Prompt replacement or repair is necessary to prevent further complications.
An abscess is a painful infection around the root of a tooth or in the gums. It can lead to severe pain and swelling and should be treated urgently to prevent spreading.
Broken or damaged dentures can hinder eating and speaking. Quick repair or replacement ensures continued functionality.
- Broken braces, wires, or orthodontic appliances can cause irritation or injury to the mouth. Orthodontic care is needed to address these issues promptly.
