Following are some emergency conditions which require treatment
There may be several causes for a toothache. One of the most common causes for a toothache is tooth decay. It is important for patients to maintain good oral hygiene to stay away from dental problems caused by bacteria. A toothache can be an indicator of tooth decay, infected gums or even abscessed tooth. Whatever may be the cause for a toothache the condition requires the immediate attention of an emergency dentist. Before visiting our practice patients can rinse the mouth with warm water. A cold compress can make the patient feel better if there is any swelling.
Broken or Chipped Tooth:
We often meet patients who come to us with the broken or chipped tooth. The pain and bleeding caused by such accidents can make a person nervous. It is important for patients to note that one of the first steps in handling a dental emergency is to stay calm and not panic. Patients can rinse the mouth with warm water and use gauze if there is bleeding.
Knocked Out Tooth:
A knocked out tooth can be saved if it is put back in place within one hour. Patients should firstly wash the tooth without disturbing the root and try to place it back in the socket. If patients are unable to place it back in position, they can carefully preserve it in a container of milk and meet our emergency dentist at the earliest.
In case if you have any dental condition that is bothering you so much and is preventing you from doing your normal day to day functions, then in such situations one should seek immediate care at the earliest. If you have a severe swelling or bleeding in the gums then act immediately. One should visit an emergency dentist to bring down the pain. Our dental practice in Victoria, BC has emergency dentists to attend you during times of dental emergencies.
If one cannot keep an appointment with regular dentists during normal working hours once should approach an emergency dentist during times of severe dental distress. An emergency dentist not only will help in reducing the pain but also give timely treatments.
