Emergency Dentist Q & A
What is an emergency dentist?
Emergency dentists treat mouth and dental injuries that need immediate attention. Examples of dental emergencies include situations where you might lose a tooth for good after it’s been broken or knocked out. If you visit Dr. I Dental PC within a half an hour of your mouth or tooth injury, you stand a much better chance of being able to save your tooth.
When is it time to call an emergency dentist?
You should seek emergency dental care whenever you’re concerned about a particularly urgent condition or a severe mouth injury. Some examples of when you should seek emergency care include:
- Severe pain in your tooth or mouth
- Bleeding from your tongue, gums, or cheeks
- Knocked-out teeth
- A loose permanent tooth
- A broken tooth
- A badly cracked tooth
- A tear or cut on your lips
- Trauma to your mouth or face
- Swelling in your mouth, gums, or tongue
If you’ve suffered from any of these incidents or from a different dental emergency, call the offices of Dr. I Dental PC. They’ll be able to tell you whether you need emergency care and how to handle your emergency until you see Dr. Ilyayev.
What do I do if my tooth gets knocked out?
If you’ve knocked out your tooth, you have a dental emergency. There’s a good chance that you’ll lose your tooth for good if you don’t take proper action, so get yourself to the Dr. I Dental PC offices as soon as you can.
While you’re waiting for Dr. Ilyayev to see you, or while you’re on your way to the office, there are a few things that you should do to increase the chances of being able to save your tooth. Rinse your mouth and the tooth with warm water. When you rinse the tooth, hold it by the top part (the crown) and be careful not to touch the roots.
If you can, try to reinsert the tooth into your empty socket. Again, be careful not to touch the tooth’s roots when you’re doing this. If you manage to get the tooth into the socket, gently bite down and keep the tooth in place while you wait to see Dr. Ilyayev.
If you can’t get your tooth back into the empty socket, hold it in your mouth next to your cheek or keep it in a glass of milk. The moisture will help prevent the roots from drying out.
If you’re dealing with a dental emergency, schedule an appointment immediately with Dr. I Dental PC. You can call the office or book your visit online.
