Dealing with Dental Emergencies: What You Need to Know

Dental emergencies can strike at any moment, often without warning. A dental emergency can come in many forms: it may be a sudden, unbearable toothache that awakens you in the middle of the night, a sports injury that knocks a tooth loose, or an unexpected oral infection that causes significant pain and swelling. Quick action can mean the difference between saving or losing a tooth, and it can prevent further complications. With emergency dental services, you can address these critical situations promptly.

Types of Dental Emergencies

Emergency dental situations require swift intervention. Here are some conditions that our TWC Dental emergency team is ready to handle:

Severe Toothaches

A severe toothache can be the body's alarm for urgent dental issues ranging from deep decay, cracked teeth, gum disease, or an abscess. It's not just the discomfort – a toothache can be a harbinger of a potentially serious underlying condition that requires immediate attention. Emergency dental care aims to relieve your pain and investigate the cause to provide a lasting solution.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If a tooth has been knocked out, acting quickly is crucial. Preserving the tooth by keeping it moist – in milk or saliva – can increase the chances of successful reattachment. Our clinic is equipped to handle such emergencies, and the faster you access emergency dental care, the higher the likelihood we can save your tooth.

Cracked or Broken Teeth

Whether it's a minor chip or a significant fracture, a cracked or broken tooth can lead to more than just aesthetic issues – it can cause pain, infection, and even impact the alignment of your teeth. Emergency dentists will evaluate the damage and implement the necessary treatments to maintain your oral health and prevent future complications.

Dental Abscesses

A dental abscess, typically resulting from a bacterial infection, can manifest as a painful, pus-filled swelling. This condition can lead to serious oral and general health problems if not treated promptly. Emergency services include draining the abscess, treating the infection, and ensuring that the infection is completely resolved to prevent recurrence.

Lost Fillings or Crowns

Fillings and crowns are used to restore teeth after decay; when they fall out, your tooth is at risk for further decay or damage, and the exposed tooth may be sensitive to pressure, air, or temperature. Emergency repairs or replacements can protect the integrity of your tooth and restore function and comfort quickly.

Uncontrollable Bleeding

Severe Gum Infections

Gum infections are not just discomforting, they can be the culprits behind tooth loss and can have implications for your overall health. Symptoms may include red, swollen, or bleeding gums, and in severe cases, can lead to the formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums, loosening of teeth, or even bone loss. Emergency care targets gum infection symptoms and their underlying causes using treatments like deep cleaning, antibiotics, or surgery when needed.

015 braces

Broken Braces or Wires

Orthodontic emergencies, while often not life-threatening, require prompt attention to prevent setbacks in treatment progress. Broken braces or wires can inflict injury to your mouth’s soft tissues and can potentially delay the orthodontic process. Emergency dental services include on-the-spot fixes for broken brackets or wires to ensure your comfort and treatment continuity.

First Steps When You Have a Dental Emergency

In the event of a dental emergency, your initial actions can play a pivotal role in the outcome. Here are some steps you can take if you face such a scenario:

Understanding the situation

It’s essential to quickly evaluate the situation for severity. Is there uncontrollable bleeding? Intense pain? A tooth that’s been dislodged? These are clear signals that you need immediate dental care. Understanding what constitutes a dental emergency and knowing the first steps to take can be vital in managing the situation.

Immediate actions at home

  • For severe tooth pain: Apply a cold compress to the affected area to reduce swelling and take over-the-counter pain medication to manage discomfort. Avoid placing paracetamol directly on the gums or tooth, as this can cause tissue damage. Also, steer clear of extremely hot or cold foods and beverages which can worsen the pain.
  • For a knocked-out tooth: Time is crucial. Pick up the tooth by the crown (the part that’s visible in the mouth normally) and rinse it if it’s dirty, but don’t scrub. Attempt to reinsert it in the socket if possible; if not, keep the tooth moist by placing it in milk or in your mouth next to your cheek. This will help preserve the tooth for potential reattachment. Apply gauze or a moist tea bag to manage any bleeding.
  • For lost fillings or crowns: Protect the exposed tooth as a temporary measure. Dental cement, available at most pharmacies, can be used to cover the area. If that’s not on hand, sugar-free gum or even a dab of toothpaste can work as a temporary barrier. Avoid chewing on the affected side and foods or drinks that could trigger pain or sensitivity.

Taking these steps can provide some relief and stabilisation until you can get professional care. Remember, these are temporary solutions – contacting your dentist immediately for an emergency appointment is imperative.
