When to Seek Professional Help for Dental Injuries

dca-blog_235-dental-emergencies

Ignoring dental pain or injury is a costly mistake. A dental emergency requires prompt professional evaluation and treatment to save your teeth and protect your general health. Knocked-out teeth, lost fillings, damaged crowns, and tooth fractures can all lead to more expensive repairs when neglected. Soft tissue damage can set the stage for infection, and oral infections can spread to other parts of your body such as your jaw, neck, and head. In rare cases, they could even be life threatening. If you have an accidental injury to your teeth or gums, emergency dental treatment is always the wisest choice.

Dental Emergency Treatment Options


Dentists today have a variety of ways to deal with emergency dental situations. Modern dentistry offers advances in pain management and new ways to restore damaged or missing teeth. Durable, natural-looking synthetic materials can be used for fillings and restorations. In an emergency situation, a dental professional can quickly assess the seriousness of your injury and determine what your options are. Pain you are suffering can usually be relieved within just a few minutes.

When to Seek Help
Prompt treatment in a dental emergency saves teeth. If you’re not sure whether or not a problem is truly urgent, play it safe and seek help. Your dentist will tell you that if there is pain involved, it is an emergency; pain often indicates involvement of the inner structures or nerves of your teeth. Even injuries that seem minor can cause serious damage, but timely treatment can prevent it from getting worse. If you experience pain after an injury, or there is visible damage to your tooth, call your family dentist, or go to an emergency dental clinic as soon as possible.
