Leander Dentist Dental EmergenciesExpect the unexpected, especially when it comes to a dental emergency. Dental issues are hard to detect, until it’s too late. It’s important to know what a dental emergency is and what to do when it happens.
 

Common Dental Emergencies

 
Dental trauma is the number one cause of a dental emergency, but tooth decay can weaken or infect a tooth.
  • Toothache – whether it is mild, moderate or severe, you need to see a dentist when you experience persistent toothache. A toothache can be a sign of a cavity or infected tooth.
  • Chipped/broken tooth – save the piece of tooth and rinse it, as well as gently rinsing the broken or chipped tooth. Use warm water to rinse tooth because it may be sensitive to cold water.
  • Abscessed tooth – this is a result of tooth decay or dental trauma. Once the tooth’s pulp is damaged and infected, you may notice tender, swelled gums and a toothache. To save the natural tooth, schedule an emergency root canal.
  • Knocked out tooth – this is a dental emergency that is time sensitive. When your tooth gets knocked out, rinse the tooth off and place it in a glass of water, milk or saliva. In Leander, dentists, Drs. Loftus and Anderson, need to see a knocked out tooth as soon as possible. With quick action and care, a tooth can be saved.
 
When you have a dental emergency, the most important thing you should do is to contact your Leander dentists, Drs. Loftus and Anderson. It’s important to seek a professional’s care; otherwise, you can be at risk for tooth loss and cause damage to the gum tissue and surrounding teeth. Do you have a dental emergency or another dental concern? Contact your dentist in Leander.
