Understanding Dental Emergencies
What is COnsidered A Dental Emergency?
There are many different kinds of dental emergencies. The most obvious emergencies involve impact injuries and direct dental trauma. However, a serious toothache is also considered a dental emergency. Other emergencies include:
- Loose teeth
- Knocked-out (avulsed) teeth
- Oral trauma and soft tissue damage to the cheeks, gums and lip
- Excessive bleeding
- Loss of dental work (fillings, crowns, or dental bridges)
Precautions to Protect Your Teeth
What Should I Do in a Dental Emergency?
First, contact the team at Wisconsin Dental Wellness and let us know you’re coming in for an emergency visit. If you can recover your tooth or dental work, gently rinse it off with warm water and replace it in the socket. If this isn’t possible, put it in a small container of milk. If you’re bleeding, use gauze or cotton balls to absorb the blood until you can come in. Pain can be treated with NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Don’t use aspirin, since this can interfere with blood clotting. You can also mitigate pain by applying an ice pack externally.
