WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IN A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
We understand that there may be times when you need to see a local emergency dentist as soon as possible. This could be due to debilitating toothache, an infection, fractured or knocked out teeth, even lost fillings. All may require immediate dental attention in these circumstances.
A lot of dental practices offer same-day, next-day, or out-of-hours emergency dental appointments, so hopefully you should be able to see someone quite quickly. Get in touch with your local dentist to find out more.
WHAT IS A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
It is important to know whether or not something is a dental emergency. It will help you decide what you need to do next. If you are experiencing pain or have knocked out a tooth, you should see your dentist as soon as possible.
If you are not too sure if your dental problem is an emergency, get in touch with your local dentist so they can advise you further.
Usually it is best to avoid Accident and Emergency departments unless in addition to your teeth and mouth, there are other medical issues. This is because doctors do not always have the necessary equipment to treat dental emergencies. However, if you have swelling that is increasing around your jawline or cheeks or uncontrolled bleeding in your mouth, these can endanger your life and even one of these symptoms needs to be treated at A&E urgently.
Other Dental Emergencies
Toothaches – If you are suffering from a severe toothache, try taking painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen and seek attention as soon as possible. Severe dental pain is frequently caused by an abscessed tooth and you may be prescribed antibiotics to treat the infection.
Lost Filling/Broken Tooth – A lost filling or a broken tooth can often leave very sharp edges and can cause cuts on your tongue and cheeks if not treated. If you are not experiencing any pain, a trick to help is to use something like plasticine or bluetac to smooth over the sharp edge until you can visit your local dentist. If you are experiencing pain, contact your local dentist immediately.
Soft Tissue Injuries – This typically includes lacerations and punctures to the tongue, cheeks, or lips. Clean the wound as soon as possible, then visit your local dentist or emergency department. If bleeding continues, place pressure on the wound using sterile gauze.
The best person to evaluate your emergency situation and provide advice will be your dentist. Your dentist will arrange for you to receive the best possible treatment and make sure you are taken care of.
