Dental Injury Caused By Impact To The Mouth: There are many kinds of dental problems that demand emergency treatment. The most obvious and urgent kind of dental emergencies are dental injuries that have been caused by an impact to the mouth such as: chipped teeth knocked out teeth, or loose teeth. These type of injuries should be treated right away, before the situation gets worse or becomes irreparable. Time is of the essence, because even half an hour can mean the difference between saving your tooth or having to get a replacement.

If your tooth is knocked out, make sure to do the following so it can be re-implanted:

  • Hold your tooth only by the crown (don’t touch the roots)
  • Lightly rinse your tooth (don’t brush or clean it)
  • Try to put your tooth back in its socket, but make sure to not swallow or lose it
  • If you can’t put the tooth back in the socket, place it in a small container filled with whole milk or saliva
  • Call an emergency dentist as soon as you can and get immediate treatment

The sooner you get emergency dental treatment, the higher your chances of saving your tooth. At Albany Dental Group, we know that emergencies don’t happen at anybody’s convenience – so our dental receptionist ready to assist you when you call us at our two convenient locations.

Toothache: When you’re suffering from toothache, all you want to know is how to stop it. Toothaches can be caused by a variety of reasons – a broken tooth, maybe a new cavity under an old filling, or damage from grinding or clenching. The severity of toothache can be in indicator of a serious problem, especially if you can’t even eat or drink without experiencing excruciating agony. If this is the case, it’s best to visit an emergency dentist right away so the problem doesn’t get worse.

Sore and swollen gums: This is usually an infection from plaque and gum disease, or a reaction to food getting stuck in between the teeth. This is why flossing is such an important part of daily dental care. You can try to gently floss the affected area and rinse with warm salt water to at least help the situation, but if the pain is constant and your gums bleed even at the slightest touch, you should see an emergency dentist right away.

Broken & cracked teeth: A broken or cracked tooth can occur as a result of the following: accidental falls, sports-related injuries, fighting, car accidents, cavities, or accidentally biting on hard food. You can help increase your chances or saving your teeth when you do the following:

  • Find and save all the pieces of the broken tooth
  • Rinse your mouth out with warm water
  • Decrease the swelling by keeping a cold icepack on your cheek or lips , where your tooth was broken
  • Take over the counter pain medication for temporary pain relief
  • Call an emergency dentist and schedule an appointment right away

Like all emergencies, a quick response is one of the most important things when it comes to saving your teeth. In a situation like this, make sure to not panic and follow the recommended precautions – then just give us a call and we’ll restore your teeth as quickly as possible.

Lost crown: If you lose your crown, simple things like eating toast may cause pain. While it’s not a life threatening situation, it can interfere with your daily eating and drinking, so it’s best to get emergency dental treatment right away. There’s no need to panic, and just make sure you remember to bring your crown with you when you come in for an emergency visit.
