Tips for Common Mouth Injury Emergencies

No matter how prepared you are, sometimes dental emergencies can strike at any given moment. Until you can find a local dentist, here are some steps you can take during specific types of dental emergencies.

  • Toothaches

When you've gone through the discomfort of a toothache, the last thing you want is to experience it again. The good news, many toothaches are preventable by taking care of your teeth and gums, practicing good oral hygiene, and keeping up with your regular dental check-ups.

After suffering the pain and burden of a toothache, you are more inclined to make sure you never have to experience such discomfort again. Fortunately, toothaches are essentially preventable by simply maintaining a good oral hygiene and regularly keeping up with routine dental check-ups.

  • Chipped or Broken Teeth

If you have a broken or chipped tooth, this emergency requires immediate attention from our dentists. Our staff will do our best to relieve pain from the chipped or broken tooth, and in some situations, we can replace dislodged teeth.

  • Knocked-Out Tooth

If you have a knocked-out tooth, immediately hold the tooth by its crown and rinse it off completely with water. Then, if possible, insert the tooth back into its socket, or keep it in between your gums and your cheek. You must see a dentist within an hour of the accident occurring your best chance of salvaging your tooth.

Dental Treatments for Mouth Injuries

The instant you experience a dental emergency, it is best to call our staff as soon as possible. We urge you to consult with our office the moment you start to experience a dental emergency or have critically wounded your tooth or teeth. An important note to keep in mind is at times, no sensation of pain won't always equate to you experiencing no problems

Common sought-after procedures by our patients requiring urgent care include, but are most certainly not restricted to:

  • Replacement of damaged, loosened, or misplaced fillings or crowns

  • Filling and crown placements over natural teeth to alleviate toothaches resulting from severe decay or fragmentation

  • Repairment of damaged or broken dental restorations

  • Removal of a tooth’s infected root and surrounding tissues

  • Extraction of a tooth with irreversible damage that is beyond standard restoration

  • Replacement of a dislodged tooth (under rare but certainly possible instances)

Avoiding Mouth Injuries

Unfortunately, certain oral emergencies are inevitable and can happen at any given moment. Nonetheless, there are precautions you can try out to help prevent dental injuries, such as:

  • Wearing a mouthguard during heavy physical activity or contact sports. Custom-made mouthguards fabricated precisely for your mouth and bite are also available to order.

  • Refraining from opening food packets or plastic packages with your teeth.

  • Straying away from chewing excessively on hard items, for example ice, nutshells, and pen caps.
