What is a Dental Emergency
You may wonder if your issue constitutes as a dental emergency. Common dental emergencies include:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Teeth that get knocked out
- Losing a filling
- A dislodged dental crown
- An abscessed tooth
Even though you may feel these issues are minor, it’s important to be seen by a dentist as soon as possible. If these items are left untreated, it can lead to serious complications that affect more than just your teeth or mouth.
Don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions relating to something you think may be a dental emergency. Our staff is happy to help guide you and schedule a time to get treated.
What to do with a broken tooth
If you have a cracked or broken tooth, or a large piece of the tooth is missing, first call our office to schedule an appointment. Then try to handle the affected area and tooth fragment as little as possible. The more you jostle the tooth, the more chances that you may swallow a fragment of the tooth.
If the tooth is fully unattached, rinse it off to get rid of any visible dirt. Then keep it in a container of milk or your own saliva until your appointment with the dentist. To keep your tooth socket from bleeding, apply a cold, wet compress to the area.
If one of these dental problems arises, don’t hesitate to contact our Cary dental office with any questions. We are happy to fit you in with an appointment to see one of our qualified and caring Cary dentists!
