Dental Pain or Trauma? We Can Help!

Any trauma to the mouth that may cause bleeding and lacerations to the gums, and dislodge or fracture teeth, may require immediate medical attention. The many causes of dental emergencies include a sporting injury, accident, biting on hard food or packaging and simple falls. Your teeth may be broken, cracked, knocked out, loosened, or you might just have a bad toothache.

Below are some tips you can follow in the event of a dental emergency.

Knocked-out tooth. Handle the tooth as little as you can. Place it back in the socket if possible but do not swallow. If you can’t place it in the socket, you can put it in a container of your saliva or milk until you can see a dentist.

Bleeding. If you’ve lost or damaged a tooth, lip or your tongue and there is blood, you can apply a cold, wet compress to the site.

Cracked tooth. Rinse your mouth out with warm water, then apply a cold compress to your face to combat swelling.

Toothache. Rinse the area with warm water and gently floss any food particles caught between teeth.

The Causes of Tooth Pain

Though you may ignore it as harmless, discomfort from a tooth can indicate a severe problem. For example, an infection or abscess may be present. If not treated, it can spread to other parts of your mouth and result in tooth loss. You should see a dentist immediately if you experience tooth pain.
