When is Urgent Dental Care Called For?
Typical Circumstances Indicating Seeing a Dental Professional on an Emergency Basis
What constitutes a dental emergency? How bad should mouth pain or tooth pain be before it’s something that should be looked at? When might a circumstance arise in which I should call Arlington Advanced for emergency dental services?
As adults we might ask ourselves questions like that. As parents, sometimes we might find ourselves asking, “She’s complaining a lot about her teeth and mouth hurting. Should we race her over to the emergency room now, or should we wait until the dental office opens?”
Sometimes – in the case of a broken jaw – the emergency requires medical treatment in an ER setting. Sometimes it’s not really an emergency at all, but instead the residual pain of a procedure such as root canal therapy or gum scaling.
But sometimes a dental emergency requires immediate attention and treatment from your Arlington VA emergency dentist. Here are a few:
Knocked Out Tooth
If you or your child were to lose a tooth due to an impact injury, it’s not the worst situation ever but it does necessitate urgent dental care as soon as possible.
If possible, preserve what got knocked out. Then call Arlington Advanced to see our emergency dentist, Dr. Hossein Ahmadian, D.D.S. He’ll treat the site of the knocked-out tooth, reduce swelling and lower the pain. Then he’ll perform the dental work necessary to prevent permanent damage by re-installing the tooth or fashioning a customized bridge.
A chipped tooth can be saved if it can be put back together again. The key is to preserve the pieces of tooth in a glass of warm milk. (Never wash or dry tooth pieces, as that can make it more difficult for the emergency dentist to piece the tooth back together.)
Rinse your mouth, apply gauze until bleeding stops, and call our office for emergency dentistry services as soon as possible.
A severe toothache keeping you or your child up all night is a stressful ordeal. If it forces a series of all-nighters, or is accompanied by facial swelling or excessive bleeding, contact Dr. Ahmadian and Arlington Advanced Dental.
If you need to await the next day’s office hours and want to perform your own at-home treatment to alleviate the pain in the meantime, try this:
Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it thoroughly. Gently dislodge any food debris using dental floss. Reduce swelling by applying an ice pack or cold compress outside the mouth where the pain is most intense.
Not only is a lost filling painful, it’s also a situation requiring immediate attention because the innards of the tooth are exposed, leaving your tooth susceptible to bacterial infection and further tooth decay.
If a tooth filling has been dislodged, purchase from your local pharmacy some temporary dental wax or cement and apply it to cover up the hole. Alternatively, use sugarless gum as a replacement – but never use gum with sugar as that’d cause more pain while adding to the damage.
Don’t let a dental emergency morph into even worse dental problems. Avoid aggravating the damage; book an appointment with Arlington Advanced as soon as you can.
