Stonecott Hill Dentist explains Dental Emergencies

You can never knom when a Dental Emergency may strick, it could happen at anytime, anywhere, explains a dentist in Stonecott Hill. We are not talking about the dog eating your dentures. We are talking about serious emergencies that in certain cases could be life threatening. So what could these emergencies be, and how are they best dealt with? Firstly toothache, It’s a problem that comes from nowhere and usually without warning. It can be caused by a number of things, but should be delt with by your dentist. But they might not be around in the middle of the night, so it’s down to selfhelp. Flossing, and rinsing with warm, salty water is the first line of defence followed by painkillers. If the toothache is left and not addressed as soon as possible, the toothache could turn into an abscess. These are very serious. If not dealt with, they can be life threatening and can infect the whole body if allowed to develop. If you can’t get a dentist, get to a hospital, if only foryour peace of mind. Now tooth damage. Whether you’ve chipped tooth or you’ve knocked a tooth out, the same rules apply. The tooth or chips should be saved if possible until you can get to a dentist for analysis. The mouth should be rinsed and a swab used to stop cold air invading the wound. Painkillers can help. Finally, a more common emergency is the loss of a crown or a filling. In the case of a crown, the exposure of the tooth to the air can cause intense pain. This can be treated with clove oil and the crown can be slipped back on using a tempory cement from the chemist or sugar free gum as in the case of a filling. Whatever the case, any emergency should not be underestimated. A dentist should always be sought immediately.
