How to Deal with Dental Emergencies

Do you know what a Dental emergency is and would you know what to do in an emergency? Serious dental injuries and infections can happen at any time and to anyone.  To avoid suffering serious pain or have ongoing complications, emergencies require immediate attention. Whether you’ve knocked a tooth loose or you’re suffering from an infection that’s causing a lot of pain, there are certain steps you should take to ensure the situation is dealt with properly. If you’ve lost a tooth or suffered an injury to your mouth, jaw or lips, the first thing to do is stay calm and contact an emergency dentist as soon as you can. If the emergency occurs during normal business hours, visiting your own regular dentist is recommended. However, if the emergency happens after hours or on a weekend, you may have to find an emergency dentist in your local area. If one can’t be found and the problem is serious, you can visit the emergency department of your local hospital for urgent treatment. In addition to contacting your local emergency dentist, there are certain things you can do that will make a big difference to your overall outcome and ensure a speedy recovery.
