Tips for Managing Dental Emergencies

The following are some common dental emergencies and steps you can take to prevent further damage or injury until your dentist appointment with Dr. Zenaidy Castro

Any dental emergency like an injury to the teeth or gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored.Ignoring a dental problem can increase the risk of permanent damage as well as the need for more extensive and expensive treatment later on.
Being prepared for a Dental Emergency is no accident. It takes a little time and thought, but by knowing what to do before an accident happens, you may someday save a tooth - yours or someone else's.

Dental Emergency #1: What To Do If You Have a Toothache

A severe toothache can signal nerve damage or an infection. It is important that you keep the area free of bacteria and debris.Rinse the mouth out with warm water to clean it out.
Gently use dental floss or an interdental cleaner to ensure that there is no food or other debris caught between the teeth.
Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue.
If the pain persists, call us for an emergency dentist Melbourne appointment at 9629-7664.

Dental Emergency #2: What To Do If You Have A Broken Tooth,Chipped or Cracked Tooth

Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area around the broken tooth.
Use cold compresses on the area to keep any swelling down.
The treatment necessary to repair a chipped or cracked tooth depends. Dr. Castro, an emergency dentist Melbourne, will need to see and evaluate the injury to determine the treatment that is necessary.

Dental Emergency #3: What To Do If Objects Get Caught Between Your Teeth

Try to gently remove the object with dental floss; avoid cutting the gums.
Never use a sharp instrument to remove any object that is stuck between your teeth.
If you cant dislodge the object using dental floss, contact us for an emergency dentist Melbourne appointment at 9629-7664

Dental Emergency #4: Lost Filling

A lost filling is a serious issue because the exposed area is vulnerable to the accumulation of food and bacteria, which could lead to the sensitive pulp of the tooth becoming infected. Until you schedule an emergency dentist Melbourne appointment, you can replace the filling with sugarless gum.

Dental Emergency #5: Abscess on the Tooth

Abscesses are infections that occur around the root of a tooth or in the space between the teeth and gums. Abscesses are a serious condition that can damage tissue and surrounding teeth, with the infection possibly spreading to other parts of the body if left untreated.
If you have a severe throbbing pain and the tooth feels as though it is raised out of the socket and is loose, try using a mouthwash consisting of a teaspoonful of salt in a glass of warm water. Hold each mouthful for about one minute and repeat the procedure 3 times daily. Never put heat on the outside of the face. See your dentist ASAP.

Dental Emergency #6: Knocked out tooth


Retrieve the tooth, hold it by the crown (the part that is usually exposed in the mouth), and rinse off the tooth root with water if it's dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, try to put the tooth back in place. Make sure it's facing the right way. Never force it into the socket. If it's not possible to reinsert the tooth in the socket, put the tooth in a small container of milk (or cup of water that contains a pinch of table salt, if milk is not available) or a product containing cell growth medium, such as Save-a-Tooth. In all cases, see your dentist as quickly as possible. Knocked out teeth with the highest chances of being saved are those seen by the dentist and returned to their socket within 1 hour of being knocked out.
Go immediately to your dentist within 30 minutes is possible. Don't forget to bring the tooth.

Dental Emergency #7: Bitten Tongue or Lip

Apply direct pressure to the bleeding area with a clean cloth. If swelling is present, apply cold compress. If bleeding does not stop, go to a hospital emergency room.

Dental Emergency #8: Problems with Braces and Retainers

If a wire is causing irritation, cover the end with a small cotton ball, beeswax or piece of gauze, until you can get to the dentist. If a wire gets stuck in the cheek, tongue or gum tissue, do not attempt to remove it. Go to your dentist immediately. If an appliance becomes loose or if it breaks off, take the appliance and the piece and go to dentist.

Dental Emergency #9: Lost Crown

If the crown falls off, make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible and bring the crown with you. If you can't get to the dentist right away and the tooth is causing pain, use a cotton swab to apply a little clove oil to the sensitive area (clove oil can be purchased at your local drug store or in the spice aisle of your grocery store). If possible, slip the crown back over the tooth. Before doing so, coat the inner surface with an over-the-counter dental cement, toothpaste, or denture adhesive, to help hold the crown in place. Do not use super glue!

Dental Emergency #10: Soft-tissue injuries

Injuries to the soft tissues, which include the tongue, cheeks, gums, and lips, can result in bleeding. To control the bleeding, here's what to do:

Rinse your mouth with a mild salt-water solution.
Use a moistened piece of gauze or tea bag to apply pressure to the bleeding site. Hold in place for 15 to 20 minutes.
To both control bleeding and relieve pain, hold a cold compress to the outside of the mouth or cheek in the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes.
If the bleeding doesn't stop, see your dentist right away or go to a hospital emergency room. Continue to apply pressure on the bleeding site with the gauze until you can be seen and treated.
