Common Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies are diverse -- from a knocked-out tooth during a game of basketball, or a cracked tooth after biting into a candy apple -- but they all require immediate attention. The team at Twelve Bridges Dental is happy to treat dental emergencies, including:
• Damaged dental work
• Cracked tooth
• Cut to your gum tissue
• Knocked-out tooth
• Objects stuck between your teeth
If you experience a dental emergency, call our Roseville emergency dentist’s office, where we will work with you to ensure you are seen and treated as quickly as possible. If needed, our dentists offer oral conscious sedation to help you relax during a procedure to correct the injured area.
What Do I Do To Protect a Knocked-Out Tooth?
Knocked-out teeth are an unfortunate, yet common emergency. How you react in the time it takes to get to our office can make the difference in saving a tooth so it can be re-implanted. Remember that a tooth is living tissue and requires a special pH balance to survive. When you lose a tooth, the best place for it is your mouth where the pH is properly balanced – if you can, place the tooth back in its original location until you can get to our dental office. If you are unable to do so, place it in a cup of milk or water with a pinch of salt. Do not clean the tooth or handle it excessively – pick it up only by the crown and try not to handle the roots.
If you experience other dental emergencies, such as a severe toothache or chipped tooth, applying a cold compress can help to minimize swelling and pain until you reach the Twelve Bridges Dental office.
