What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies can present in a number of ways. If you experience any of the following, it’s important to seek immediate attention from your dentist at iSmile.
Severe Toothache: Persistent and severe tooth pain may signal an underlying issue that requires urgent attention.
Trauma or Injury: Accidents or injuries resulting in chipped, cracked, or knocked-out teeth demand immediate care.
Swelling or Abscess: Swelling around the gums, face, or jaw, particularly with pus or drainage, may indicate an infection requiring prompt treatment.
Lost Dental Restorations: If a crown, filling, or other dental restoration becomes dislodged, it’s considered a dental emergency.
What to Do in a Dental Emergency?
Reach Out to iSmile Dental: At iSmile, we offer an emergency line for situations that might arise during our off hours. Be sure to call our emergency dental line promptly when a dental emergency occurs. Our team will provide guidance and schedule your emergency appointment, as soon as possible. If you are unable to reach us, and it is severe, you may want to visit the emergency room.
Manage Pain: Over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses can offer temporary relief. Avoid placing aspirin directly on the affected area, as this may cause the issue to worsen.
Retrieve Lost Teeth or Restorations: If a tooth is knocked out, gently rinse it with water and try to reposition it in the socket. For lost dental restorations, store them in a secure container.
Avoid DIY Solutions: While awaiting your emergency appointment, refrain from attempting DIY fixes that could exacerbate the situation. Avoid using sharp objects or substances that may harm the teeth or gums.
