There are many events where you may suffer from a dental emergency and require immediate dental care. It is firstly advised not to panic and get in touch with us in all these cases. You can contact us over a call or visit our clinic directly. After examining your condition, we will provide you with a suitable treatment.
What are the Common Dental Emergencies?
Events like chipped, broken, and knocked-out teeth are dental emergencies that are required to be treated immediately. When you suffer from any such conditions, act immediately. Try to find your missing teeth fragment and rinse away visible debris. Do not scrub it clean. Store your teeth in a cup of milk and visit our clinic as soon as possible.
We will check the type of cracks you may be suffering from, and after considering everything, we will decide on an appropriate treatment option. Some of the different types of cracks affecting your teeth are crazes, oblique supragingival cracks, oblique subgingival cracks, vertical furcation cracks, oblique root cracks, and vertical apical root cracks. In most cases, we restore your crack with a crown or filling. However, if it is severe, we may have to extract the tooth.
Abscessed teeth are a condition where you develop blisters along your gums near your teeth. It is a dental emergency, because if not addressed at the right time, it may lead to swelling, bleeding in the gums, and a lot of pain. Abscessed teeth are also an indication that your teeth have decayed and may need a root canal. To address the situation immediately, take an anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen. Visit our clinic at the earliest. We will examine your mouth, check your abscessed teeth, and prepare you for a root canal.
If you have dental crowns and they have fallen out by any chance, try to locate them and then store them in a zip-top bag. It is strictly advised not to use glue to fix your crown yourself. You can use clove oil to relieve pain.
Visit our dental clinic immediately. After checking your teeth, we will determine whether to use the same crown to restore your teeth or prepare another one. If we choose the latter, we will start by creating impressions of your teeth to make permanent crowns. Meanwhile, we will use temporary crowns to restore your teeth.
