What Situations Are Dental Emergencies
As a rule of thumb, if it looks or feels like it cannot wait, then it might very well be a dental emergency. Immediate help is available here at OC Laser Dental Center. We are ready to get you into our offices for those occasions where time is of the absolute essence. Below we've included a couple of more common dental emergencies that we can provide same-day appointments and treatment for.
It happens more often than you might think. All it takes is a rogue elbow, a single moment of zoning out, and your tooth is gone. Your tooth might be out, but there is a chance to save it and reinsert it. A same-day appointment is a must in such cases. If this happens to you, there are a few steps to take to help increase the odds of saving your tooth if it is still intact.
- Don't pick it up by the roots. Only touch the crown, which is the part you usually see.
- Do not scrub it, but instead rinse it with warm water.
- If the tooth cannot gently be put back in, store it in a clean cup of water or wrapped in a cloth.
- Call OC Laser Dental!
Sudden Loose Tooth
If you notice that a tooth is suddenly loose, an emergency dentist visit is a must. Better to take care of it right away than to risk losing the tooth. Try to press the tooth back into place gently. If there is any resistance, do NOT force it. Contact your dentist immediately, and we will take care of it for you.
Sports and daily like alike are filled with chances to chip or crack a tooth. In some minor cases, this might not require an emergency visit, but you should call anyway to check. Better safe than sorry.
Leaving a cracked or fractured tooth untreated can put you at risk for future problems such as infections and inflammation. Better to address it right away, avoiding future complications.
