Dental Emergency First Aid
If you or a loved one has suffered a dental emergency, it is important to remain calm and assess the situation. If serious facial trauma has occurred, such as a broken jaw or profuse bleeding, please visit the emergency room at your local hospital. Once the situation has stabilized, please contact a Burlington emergency dentist right away for assistance.
Swelling in the jaw area
If you notice pain or swelling in the jaw area of your face that ahs appeared without direct trauma it is most likely begin caused by an infection. Your teeth or gums can become infected, sometimes creating an abscess that requires draining or antibiotics. If the affected area is swollen and warm to the touch, we recommend getting in touch with your emergency dentist immediately for an accurate diagnosis.
Lost, Broken, Chipped or Cracked Crown, Veneer, Implant or Bridge
If a dental repair has broken or fallen out, it is important to keep the implant so that it can be repaired and reattached with dental cement to avoid further damage. There are temporary solutions available if an immediate repair is not possible. Please phone your emergency dentist for more information and immediate assistance.
A broken denture is a common occurrence and can often qualify as a dental emergency. It is important not to attempt a repair yourself as this could result in additional damage. Please schedule an appointment for immediate assistance.
Knocked Out Tooth or other Dental Injuries
In case of a knocked out tooth, it is important to find the tooth if possible. Rinse the tooth off to remove any dirt or debris, being careful not to touch or handle the tooth root. IT is possible to re-implant a knocked-out tooth if done so within 30 minutes of the time of injury. In this case, gently place the knocked out tooth back into the open socket and visit your emergency dentist immediately. Alternatively, place the tooth into a glass of cold milk and immediately visit your emergency dentist.
Other dental injuries such as chipped or broken teeth will require repair from a professional emergency dentist. Attempt to locate the missing portion of the tooth and visit your Burlington emergency dentist as soon as possible. Over the counter pain medication may be taken to help with discomfort. Ensure to follow the consumption directions on the package for dosing guidelines.
If a tooth has become fractured, it is important to visit your emergency dentist as soon as possible. There are varying degrees of tooth fractures and most can be repaired by a professional dentist. Composite restorations or permanent crowns are the most common repair techniques. If your tooth is severely fractured, there may be little hope of saving the tooth, in which case a dental implant will be recommended. Over the counter pain medication may be taken to help with discomfort. Ensure to follow the consumption directions on the package for dosing guidelines.
If you’ve suffered a puncture wound, laceration or tear in your oral region, it is recommended to visit the emergency room of your local hospital. First aid treatment consists of stopping the bleeding by applying pressure with a gauze pad and taking over the counter pain medication for discomfort. Ensure to follow the consumption directions on the package for dosing guidelines.
Dental emergencies can vary greatly in severity and treatment options, meaning it is important to seek the advice of a professional emergency dentist to ensure a correct diagnosis and rapid treatment of your condition.
