What Is

Emergency Dentistry

In most dental emergencies, pain is the issue rather than a serious threat to your health. You still need to call your dentist immediately – emergency dentistry is essential to avoid the risk of permanent damage. Emergency dentists like Calton Hill Dental provide temporary relief in urgent cases of acute pain, infection, and oral injury. This generally involves:
  • Prescribing antibiotics and painkillers.
  • Initial dressing for a damaged tooth.
  • Tooth extraction.
  • Referral to a specialist healthcare service.
Whatever your dental emergency might be, you’ll almost certainly need a follow-up appointment.

Emergency Procedure

Here are ways recommended by emergency dentists to make typical dental crises less of an ordeal.

  • Sudden toothache. To relieve toothache, you need to control swelling. Take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory painkiller like ibuprofen or aspirin. Rinse your mouth with warm water and hold an icepack to your face.
  • Knocked-out tooth. Keep the tooth, handling it by the crown. Your dentist may be able to reinsert it, so put the tooth in a cup of water with a pinch of salt. Or place the tooth back in its socket yourself if you can do so without forcing it.
  • Facial swelling. Severe facial swelling indicates a serious infection of a tooth, gums or bone. This can spread to other areas. Avoid lying down, and keep your body hydrated to lessen the risk of further complications.
  • Tongue Injury. When injured, your tongue can swell and become painful. It may also bleed profusely. To minimize bleeding, pack gauze onto the area and put pressure on it.

 

How To Help Yourself

If you find yourself with a dental crisis, panic can make things worse. Keeping as calm as you can and taking some simple measures can help ease the stress ahead of your emergency dental visit.

If you’ve suffered a head or neck injury as well as dental trauma, you should see your general physician or visit the emergency room first.
