Dental Emergency Cases Are As Follows:
If you have experience facial trauma that results in a chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth, this may or may not be a dental emergency. If the damage tooth does not cause pain or have any sharp edges, chances are you can wait until your dentist opens in the morning. If you are experiencing severe pain or the tooth has sharp edges that are causing trauma to your mouth, this requires emergency dentistry intervention.
Experiencing facial trauma that knocks out an adult tooth is a dental emergency and requires immediate attention, both on your part and the need for emergency dentistry in Calgary. Several steps must be taken with the tooth to improve the chances of it being able to be implanted and saved. Pick up the tooth, using care not to touch the root. Rinse the tooth gently in cool water to remove any dirt or debris. If possible, gently place the tooth back into the socket. If this is not possible, keep the tooth in a small container with milk and seek immediate dental care. The longer you wait for treatment, the less chance you have of saving the tooth.
Severe tooth pain accompanied with an abscess can be a life-threatening condition and you must seek immediate care with emergency dentistry. An abscess can present as a lump on your gums or swelling in your face. In addition to pain, you may experience a foul-smell and a high fever. If you have had a toothache for some time and all of the sudden the pain stops or you lose sensation in the area, this could mean that you have an abscess close to a nerve. If you cannot access an emergency dentist, head to the hospital emergency room.
What Is Not An Emergency?
While problematic, the loss of a filling or crown is not an emergency unless you are experiencing pain. A crown can be temporarily put back in place with the use of over-the-counter dental or denture adhesive until you can make an appointment with your regular dentist during normal business hours.
