EMERGENCY DENTIST OR HOSPITAL?

 



If you suddenly experience extreme pain in the teeth or gums without having been involved in a physical accident, then usually this necessitates a visit to an emergency dentist. Other emergencies can occur with your mouth too, and you should call us regarding such things as a dislodged or cracked tooth, a bitten lip or tongue, or if an object has got stuck between your teeth. If you have broken your jaw, or your gums, lips, or teeth are badly damaged and won’t stop bleeding, then you should visit the emergency department of your local hospital.  The Seminole Dental  in Texas City is conveniently located near MS Doss City Park and Seminole Hospital District is the  low cost dental office by me.

EMERGENCY DENTAL TIPS

After contacting us there are a few things you can do to lessen the pain temporarily and save your teeth. We’ve put together a few tips below which you can follow until you can get to see an emergency dentist.

• A severe toothache – Rinse out your mouth with warm water to clean it before taking a couple of over the counter painkillers such as Ibuprofen, Advil, or Nurofen. Wait for 4 hours before repeating the process. You can repeat the second step as many times as necessary before visiting our emergency dental clinic, but most times we should be able to fit you in quite quickly.

• Cracked teeth – Rinse your mouth out with warm water and then apply a cold compress on your face, next to the area that’s affected. Do not be tempted to mess around with the tooth or teeth, when applying the compress.

• Object stuck between teeth or in gums – Try and remove the object gently with your fingers or with a pair of tweezers. If this doesn’t work try gently flossing the area around the object to remove it. If successful, apply gentle pressure to the area for a few minutes using a clean gauze compress. Then make an appointment with our dentist in Sydney as soon as you can.

• Knocked out tooth – Try carefully placing the tooth back into its socket but don’t force it. Alternatively, place it in a small container of milk or keep it warm and moist by placing it in between your cheek and teeth before coming to see us. Avoid touching the root and don’t touch the socket with your tongue.

• Bleeding from gums, lips, or mouth – slowly rinse with warm water to clean the area and then hold a cold compress to the area to reduce the bleeding.
