FAQ'S

Frequently Asked Questions

Contrary to popular belief, dental emergencies can be just as serious as medical situations that require prompt attention. If individuals feel dental pain, it is recommended that they seek urgent care rather than wait for the discomfort to subside. Believe it or not, if oral disorders are ignored, they can have profound effects that affect one’s general health.

The following are the consequences of ignoring emergency dental care:

  • Pain and discomfort
  • Nerve damage to the teeth
  • Bacterial infection
  • Permanent tooth damage

Dental pain is frustrating and can ruin an otherwise beautiful day. The excruciating tooth pain and swelling make it challenging to eat, drink, or speak and might keep you awake all night.

Listed below are some of the essential tips to consider for managing dental pain:

  • Maintain an elevated position for your head.
  • Apply a cold compress to the area of pain.
  • Make sure your head is higher when sleeping.
  • Brush your teeth with gentle strokes.
  • Refrain from smoking.
  • It is also best to prevent popcorn or food that requires more force when chewing
  • Take over-the-counter pain relievers while you .schedule an appointment.

If your discomfort persists or worsens, seek immediate dental care. Your dentist will diagnose the problem and provide the appropriate treatment.

When you have a broken tooth, you may or may not experience discomfort. However, the sharp fracture line on the tooth may wound or cut your tongue or cheek. If the break in the tooth is close to the nerve, you may experience a variety of sensations, ranging from minor sensitivity to cold and hot to excruciating toothaches. 

Biting down may cause you to feel more pain since it increases pressure on the teeth. It is critical to obtain dental treatment as soon as possible to avoid further nerve injury. If the break is minor and treated promptly, there may be little to no nerve injury. Unfortunately, more significant breaks may necessitate root canal treatment or extractions.

Avulsed teeth require quick treatment to attempt the reimplantation of the tooth and prevent further loss. Consult your dentist following the dental procedure for additional avulsed tooth treatment as soon as possible. Contact your dentist to determine how to obtain emergency treatment. You should treat the avulsed tooth immediately upon arrival at the scene of the accident.

You can do so by following these steps:

  1. Pick up your tooth by the crown (white chewing surface). Don’t touch the root (the part that usually holds your tooth to the bone below your gum line).
  2. Rinse your teeth gently with saline water or milk to eliminate any remaining debris. Avoid scrubbing or drying the teeth.
  3. Gently place your tooth back into the socket, root first if you can by holding your tooth by the crown and without touching the root. If not, place the avulsed tooth in a container filled with milk.
  4. Bite down on a clean cloth, gauze, or handkerchief to secure your teeth.
  5. Contact a dentist as quickly as possible as the tooth must be reimplanted within 30 minutes of avulsion for it to have a good prognosis.

Restorative dentistry should be used to reconnect permanent teeth that have been knocked out. Reimplanting baby teeth is not recommended, as it may result in injury to developing permanent teeth. In either situation, seek dental care immediately as fast as possible. If you cannot reinsert the tooth into the socket, keep it moist until you can visit a dentist. If possible, avoid exposing your teeth to plain water as has the potential to cause damage to the root surface cells.

You can store your teeth as follows:

  • A glass of milk.
  • A salty water solution designed expressly to preserve the avulsed teeth is frequently seen in first aid kits for children.
  • Your cheek, which is moistened by saliva.
  • In saline solution.

In some cases, the area around the tooth hurts, but not always. If it does, the pain is usually severe and persistent, mainly when you apply pressure on your tooth. Furthermore, it may extend to your jaw or other areas of your face on the affected side.

You might also notice:

  • Swelling
  • Gum redness
  • Bad taste
  • Fever
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Trouble breathing or swallowing
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Puffy gums
  • A foul odour when you chew with that tooth

Occasionally, an abscess will manifest as a pimple-like bump on your gums. If you press on it and pus begins to leak out, you almost certainly have an abscessed tooth. 

Seek medical attention immediately if you have facial swelling, a fever, or difficulty breathing or swallowing. The illness may have spread to other areas of your body.

If your crown was not appropriately placed or the cement has deteriorated, there is little you can do. However, you can still be vigilant in caring for your crown to minimize the likelihood of it coming loose.

The following are a few actions to take to avoid losing your dental filling or crown:

  • Prevent chewing ice.
  • Avoid eating very sticky or chewy foods.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day.
  • Floss regularly.

With an interdental brush (a larger brush that fits in between teeth like floss), remove any plaque from the area where your gum meets the tooth and crown with an interdental brush.

If you grind your teeth while sleeping, your dentist may also prescribe wearing a mouthguard to protect your crown and adjacent teeth.
