There are a number of situations where damage can be caused to your teeth where treatment is needed right away. If you forget to wear your mouth guard during a game of sport and your front tooth is knocked out then you are going to need emergency dental treatment as soon as possible. If your crown dislodges, you lose a filling or a part of your tooth breaks, the quicker you get these problems attended to the better.
Types of Dental Emergencies
Chipped and Cracked tooth: Cracked or chipped teeth should be seen to as soon as possible so that it can be repaired before it gets worse. This is a very common dental emergency and can be due to everyday wear and tear of teeth or from an injury.
Unexplained Toothaches: Toothaches can be incredibly painful and can occur out of nowhere. If you become extremely sensitive to cold and especially hot or it is keeping you up at night it can be a sign that treatment is needed and an appointment should be made as soon as possible. Pain relief medication can reduce the pain but will not make the problem go away completely. There is always an underlying reason for a toothache and the longer you leave it the worse it will get.
Loose or fallen out Crowns: There’s nothing worse than having your dental crown fall out or become loose. Crowns do not fall out easily. The reasons can be due to damage occurring underneath the crown so seeing a dentist is vital in having the crown re-cemented in or going through options for replacement.
What to do When Your Tooth that has been Knocked Out
If a tooth has been completely knocked, it can be put straight back into the socket. If it is not possible at the time, keep it moist in milk or your own saliva and see your dentist immediately.
