EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE
What is a Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency can be any number of instances that require the patient to call or go into the dentist office immediately. A true dental emergency pain can be caused by a tooth, the jaw, surrounding gums or cheeks. Examples of dental emergencies include a missing, broken or lost tooth. When faced with a dental emergency please ensure to give all the details of the situation as some dental emergencies may be life threatening. In the case that you are experiencing swelling, difficulty breathing, or you feel your life is danger, please visit the closest emergency medical facilities immediately.
Some common dental emergencies are:
- A knocked-out tooth
- Broken or cracked tooth
- Bleeding that will not stop
- Abscessed Tooth
In each case it is best that you contact your dentist (or REVO Dental ) if in Westlands. You will get an appointment immediately and Dr. Otieno will diagnose and treat the dental emergency appropriately.
Some FYI’s in the case of emergency:
For a knocked-out tooth, rinse the tooth completely and try to set the tooth back into place. If the tooth will not set, try biting gently on a wet paper towel or tea bag. If the tooth still will not set keep it wet by placing it underneath your tongue or in a container of milk.
If you have cracked or broken tooth, rinse the tooth with warm water and apply an ice pack to the area to reduce swelling. If a tooth was cracked or broken and is cutting the tongue or inner cheek, rinse the cut area with warm water then place a damp paper towel or gauze over the tooth to prevent any further cutting.
Some examples of other common dental emergencies are fillings and crowns that dislodge and fall out of place. If your fillings and crowns have fallen out of place or become dislodged, call your dentist right away to get the filling or crown replaced. While you’re waiting for the replacement refrain from chewing or placing any sugars/food over the area.
