Dental emergency Prevention
It is a known fact that accidents can happen even to the most careful ones. But the possibility of having a dental emergency may be minimized and prevented by following these steps provided by Emergency Dentist Perth:
- Dental history should be fully explored during dental check-ups. This will enable you and your dentist to know your dental profile and address damage early on to prevent dental emergencies.
- Regular dental visits and teeth cleaning allow your dentist to monitor your oral health.
- Regularly (and correctly!) brush and floss your teeth.
- When engaging in physical activities such as contact sports, wear a fitted mouth guard to protect your teeth from trauma or pressure.
What to do during a Dental emergency
Trauma or extreme force makes your tooth to be knocked partially or completely. It is important not to touch the root of the tooth as much as possible. Whether your tooth has been completely or partially knocked out, try to place it back into the socket, but don’t force it if it won’t. If it is completely removed, place the tooth in a clean container with milk and contact Emergency Dentist Perth ASAP. The sooner your tooth gets re-positioned, the higher the chances of reviving the tooth from getting knocked out.
Fractured or Chipped Tooth
A broken tooth may be less of an emergency than having your tooth knocked out, but it may sometimes need urgent care as well. When you cracked your tooth, you may apply cold compress on your face to reduce the swelling. Avoid consuming cold or hot drinks and sticky food to avoid further damage to the tooth. If you have saved the chipped parts of your tooth, bring it to your dental appointment at Emergency Dentist Perth as the dentist may still use it in reconstructing your tooth.
Bitten Tongue or Lip
Lost Filling or Crown
When you lose a dental crown, apply clove oil on the tooth with a cotton bud or swab. This can help in relieving the pain. If you still have the crown and you have dental cement at home, you can coat the inside of the crown with that or petroleum jelly or denture glue/paste to secure it in place temporarily while waiting for your dental emergency schedule.
For lost dental filling, you can put a sugar-free gum on the hole, or dental cement to seal the tooth surface. This may temporarily protect your damaged tooth until you are able to see your dentist at Emergency Dentist Perth.
