What are the common dental medical emergencies?
Broken or chipped tooth
From time to time we find ourselves involved in incidents and accidents that leave us with broken or chipped teeth. In this case, you should contact a dental professional as soon as possible. A dental crown procedure is a relatively simple and effective fix to repair broken or chipped teeth.
A toothache may actually be caused by a deeper underlying issue such as a cavity or gum disease. For this reason it’s important to seek proper diagnosis from a dental professional as soon as possible.
Knocked out or lost tooth
Completely knocked out or lost your tooth? You need to move. Acting quickly can mean the difference between saving or losing your natural tooth for good.
Initially, you should hold the tooth by the crown and not the root, and after gently washing with water or milk try to place the tooth back into the socket. If this is not possible, you should place the tooth into a container of milk while you race to the dentist or medical professional.
To Note: Any dental procedure carries risks which also may depend on your general health. This will be discussed with you prior to any dental intervention.
Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner such as your dentist or your doctor.
