Types of Dental Emergencies

You can face a dental emergency at any time. If you do, the first thing you have to do is relax and call your nearest dentist. Explain to your dentist in detail what happened and schedule an appointment. Or you can directly visit the dentist. Assess your situation, for example, your tooth is knocked out or is cracked. If it is knocked out, then you store it somewhere safe and bring it with you to the private dentist in Basingstoke.

Different types of dental emergencies are:

Toothache: If you are having pain in your teeth, then you should rinse your mouth with warm water. Moreover, you can also do a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling. You can also take painkillers like ibuprofen to eliminate pain. If this continues for more than two days, then you should not wait for a dental checkup.

Knocked-Out Tooth: If you met with an injury and your tooth is knocked out, then you should visit the dentist within 30 minutes. To stop the bleeding, you should press the gauge at the socket. Save the broken tooth with you and take it to the dentist along with you. In case of a cracked tooth, clean the area by rinsing with water. A cracked tooth can become a serious problem so don’t delay visiting a dentist.

Bleeding: If you are facing the problem of bleeding from your mouth, then it could be an acute problem. When you notice bleeding in your saliva, possibly it could be the advanced stage of gum infection. Moreover, if you are experiencing bleeding after any dental treatment, then go back to the dentist to inform. Furthermore, if you ever notice blood on your toothbrush then it can be a serious problem and requires immediate treatment.

Mouth Injury: If you have met with an injury to your jaw or your jawline is distorted, then you need immediate dental treatment.  Keep your face still until you get medical treatment. Moreover, if something is stuck between your teeth and is not coming out with floss then visit a dentist. Don’t use any sharp pointed objects like pins, as they can damage tooth surface or can cut tongue or lips.
