Dental emergencies could possibly be very serious in nature and require urgent dental attention. They should not be ignored under any circumstances. Ignoring the problem could lead to permanent damage that would make treatment more expensive and extensive.
Here are tips about what to do if faced with various dental problems.
In case of tooth decay, apply warm water to your mouth and employ dental floss to remove any food particles that may be lodged in your teeth. Never apply any pain killer as it could burn the gums. Try visiting the dentist immediately.
For a chipped or broken tooth, use warm water and apply gauze to the affected area in case there is some bleeding. Visit the dentist immediately.
For partially dislodge tooth, visit your dentist as soon as possible. In case there is excessive pain, try applying a cold compressor to the outside of the mouth near the affected are. You may take a pain reliever such as Advil until you see your dentist.
In case there are any objects that are caught between the teeth, use dental floss to remove the object. If that is not possible then visit your dentist. It is important not to use any sharp object such as a pin to remove the object.
For a lost crown, it is essential that you book an appointment with a dentist and take the crown with you. If you are unable to see the dentist immediately and you are feeling pain, then apply clove oil to the affected area with a cotton swab.
Abscess is a serious condition that can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated. It is an infection that affects the root of a tooth. If you ever witness a pimple like swelling on the gum, then see your dentist immediately. The condition is usually painful.
