Common Signs of a Dental Emergency
As much as we try to take good care of our teeth, dental emergencies can happen at any time. Knowing how to identify a dental emergency allows you to promptly seek the appropriate treatment and prevent the issue from progressing further. Here are some of the most common signs of a dental emergency, and what steps you should take to get the necessary care.
Toothache and Severe Tooth Pain
Severe toothache is commonly attributed to decay, a fractured tooth, gum infection, an abscessed tooth, or a damaged filling. The appropriate treatment will be determined based on the underlying cause, which is typically determined through an examination and/or an x-ray. Treatments can range from extraction if the tooth can’t be saved, to fixing a damaged filling.
If you’re experiencing severe or constant pain, seek immediate treatment with our emergency dental clinic in Winnipeg.
Chipped or Cracked Tooth
If you have a broken, cracked, or chipped tooth, seeking emergency dental care is crucial to prevent further damage. The severity of the condition will determine the necessary treatment; if the damage is minor, a tooth filling may be sufficient. However, if the damage is more extensive, a dental cap or crown, veneer, or root canal may be required to treat this emergency.
Loosened or Knocked-Out Tooth
If you have a knocked out tooth, see a dentist as soon as possible. Try to place the tooth back in its socket, otherwise keep it securely in a cup of milk. If you wash the tooth, be careful as you could accidentally remove tissues attached to the root.
Knocked out teeth have the best chance of being saved if put back in their socket and treated by a dentist within an hour, so don’t hesitate to get treatment from our emergency clinic now.
Soft tissue injury (mouth/gums)
Injury to the soft tissue of the mouth may include cuts, wounds, or lacerations to the lips, tongue, and cheek. The emergency dentist will thoroughly examine the damage to ensure your bones and teeth are unharmed. Smaller surface wounds will heal on their own with proper attention, however larger injuries may require stitches.
Our emergency dentist in Winnipeg can evaluate your soft tissue injury and prepare a treatment plan for a full recovery. Don’t hesitate to contact our clinic today!
