WHAT IS A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
It may seem like the question has an obvious answer, but determining the severity of a dental emergency can be tricky for non-professionals. Generally, most dental emergencies involve extreme tooth pain, bleeding from the gums, or a tooth falling out or breaking.
A toothache doesn’t always mean that there’s a problem with your dental health, but when they last for longer than a few days or don’t respond to pain relievers, there could be a more serious underlying cause. Bleeding gums or knocked-out teeth should be examined by a dental professional as soon as possible. Adults don’t lose teeth naturally, and bleeding from the mouth is a potential symptom of several oral infections.
As long as you collect the tooth, or pieces of your tooth and keep them in a glass of milk or Hank’s Balanced Salt Solution, the dentist will likely be able to save the tooth at your appointment. If you are able to clean the tooth and put it back in the socket, it is even more likely to survive when you visit the dentist immediately after it comes out from trauma.
It is important to note that a tooth lost to periodontal disease, also known as “gum disease”, cannot be saved by placing it back in the socket. This only applies to teeth knocked out from an accident or trauma.
