What is a Dental Emergency?
As a rule, we consider a dental emergency to be any condition that is causing you oral pain that you cannot treat on your own. If your condition meets these two criteria, contact Yunbelievable Smiles for an emergency appointment to get the treatment you need. Toothaches, bleeding, infections, loose dental work, and knocked-out teeth are all considered dental emergencies, so don’t wait in pain!
Treating Oral Pain
Toothaches can indicate a deep cavity or an infected tooth, and may also happen after an oral injury damages one of your teeth. Even if your tooth looks fine, a toothache that won’t go away after a day or two could indicate a serious problem, so it’s important to come see Dr. Yun right away.
Lacerations to the Gums, Lips, or Cheeks
Oral bleeding is common after an oral injury. However, if it does not stop after a few hours, you may have lacerations that require stitches. If your mouth is bleeding for no apparent reason, this is also a serious cause for concern. If your gums are bleeding, this can indicate a serious case of gum disease (periodontitis). Call to schedule a same-day appointment and get the treatment you need to stop excessive bleeding.
Treating Deep Decay
Root Canal Therapy
An infected tooth will cause serious pain and eventually fall out of your mouth if it is left untreated. Infections can be caused by a damaged tooth or extensive decay that reaches the “pulp” inside your tooth. If you notice issues like a prolonged toothache, discoloration around your tooth, and pain or sensitivity to heat, cold and pressure, these are all signs of infection. Come in for an emergency appointment to get out of pain and back to smiling.
What to Do with Knocked-Out Teeth
- If your tooth is knocked out, it’s important to get it replaced within 1 or 2 hours at most.
- Grab it by the crown, not the root. Rinse it gently with warm water and put it back in the socket, or in a container of cold milk if this isn’t possible.
- Come see Dr. Yun as soon as possible. The sooner you come in, the more likely it is that we will be able to splint and save your tooth.
The Importance of
Immediate Emergency Dental Care
Getting help for a dental emergency right away is important because it prevents further complications. Emergency care ensures the best possible outcome for a damaged tooth, which is always better than extracting it and replacing it with a partial denture, dental bridge or dental implant. In addition, you’ll get relief from the pain and discomfort of your dental emergency, so you can get back to your day-to-day life quickly.
