Emergency Dentistry for Fast Relief from Dental Problems
Injuries to teeth are avoidable. Nonetheless, at any moment, you might experience a sharp toothache or an impact to the mouth may loosen or crack a tooth. Dentists always reserve a part of their busy schedule to emergency dentistry to provide fast relief from a toothache or promptly restore a tooth loosened by a blow to the mouth.
Different options for emergency dentistry
Toothache is a symptom of an underlying dental disorder. Alleviating toothache speedily is the most common challenge of emergency dentistry. Pain relief medications and some home remedies can numb toothache for a few hours. However, your dentist is the best person for diagnosing and treating dental problems that trigger toothache.
Periodontal gum problems
Swollen and bleeding gums are common symptoms of periodontal gum diseases. Accumulation of bacteria in the space between the root and the gum tissue causes inflammation and pain of the gum. Poor oral hygiene is widely responsible for gum problems. Gum inflammation also occurs when food debris are trapped between teeth. All types of gum problems need emergency intervention.
Repairing a broken tooth is an important area of emergency dentistry. When you break a tooth, first try to save and preserve all the broken parts of the tooth. Usually, dentists try to repair the broken tooth by cementing the broken parts. In other cases, root canal treatment is recommended for restoring the tooth and covering the exposed nerve.
In most cases, dentists rely on x-ray images for detecting a fracture in a tooth. Rarely, a dentist can save the entire cracked tooth. Your dentist may restore the cracked tooth with crown. In case of severe fractures, the severely damaged portions of the tooth are removed and the remaining portion of the tooth is preserved through endodontic treatment. In addition to repairing the cracked tooth, your dentist may advise you how to prevent cracked teeth in the future.
Knocked out tooth
Re-implanting a knocked out tooth is an important discipline in emergency dentistry. Before you visit a dentist with the knocked out tooth, lightly rinse the tooth, preserve it in saliva or whole milk in a clean container, and immediately rush to a dentist for emergency re-implantation.
Although dental emergencies can make a person jittery, it is necessary to remain calm during such events. Contact your dentist as early as possible. To minimize dental emergencies in the future take common sense precautions to prevent injuries and oral problems.
