Treatment Options for Common Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can never be planned for and may cause severe pain, and discomfort, and, at times, lead to permanent damage. Having knowledge of common dental emergency treatment options and when to access them is crucial. Clients at College Hill Dental Group can benefit from the following tips on how to handle common dental emergencies.

Treatment Options for Common Dental Emergencies

Toothache

Toothache can cause excruciating pain, and the first step should be to rinse the mouth with warm water. If food or an object is stuck, use dental floss to remove it gently. Depending on the extent of the pain, over-the-counter painkillers can be used to alleviate the pain. However, at College Hill Dental Group, our Dental experts can provide a lasting solution by diagnosing and treating the underlying cause of the toothache.

Chipped or Broken Tooth

In case of a chipped or broken tooth, save the broken tooth pieces, rinse with warm water, and book an appointment at College Hill Dental Group immediately. Our dental experts can assess the extent of the damage and provide treatment options such as the use of dental veneers, bonding, or crowns to restore the tooth.

Loss of Tooth

In case a tooth is knocked out, handle it with care, holding it by the crown, rinse gently with warm water, and try to replace it into the socket without forcing it. Keep the tooth in milk or a saline solution while making your way to College Hill Dental Group. A knocked-out tooth requires emergency dental attention and, if treated within the hour, has a higher chance of being saved.

Broken Jaw

A broken jaw is a severe dental emergency requiring immediate attention. In case of injury, apply cold pressure and make your way to an emergency room or contact 911. At College Hill Dental Group, our experts can assess the severity of the breakage and recommend treatment options such as immobilization to reduce pain and aid healing.

Other Emergencies

Any other dental problems require immediate dental attention, such as bleeding, swelling, or bitten tongue or lip.
