Learn what to Do in Case of Dental Emergencies
Dr. Derhami and his staff have many years of experience in dental emergency treatments. We have outlined below some common dental emergencies and how to handle them.
The first step is to call Evident Care Dental to schedule an appointment. Let us know your symptoms and we will get you in as quickly as possible. You can ease the pain with an over-the-counter medicine that works for you. Using an ice pack may also help. Please avoid putting any source of heat on your jaw as that can make the pain worse.
Chipped or Broken Teeth
Please don’t panic as chipped or broken teeth can almost always be saved. Call Evident Care Dental in Maple Ridge and we will see you immediately. There are many solutions depending on the severity of your situation, including white fillings, root canals and crowns.
Tooth has been Knocked Out
By acting quickly, you may be able to save your tooth. If the tooth can be put back in quickly (preferably within 10 minutes), there is a fair chance of it taking root again. After 2 hours, your chances are poor. Rinse the tooth (do not scrub) and put it back in the opening. If this isn’t possible, put it in a container of cold milk. Use tissue or gauze on the opening and bite down to try and stop the bleeding. Come to Evident Care Dental or the nearest dentist, right away.
Badly Bitten Lip or Tongue
Use a clean cloth to apply pressure to the part of your mouth that is bleeding. An ice pack can be used to keep the swelling down. If the bleeding does not stop, please seek emergency help.
Object Stuck between Teeth
The first step is to use dental floss. Carefully and gently try and remove the object. We advise you to never poke between your teeth with a pin or similar sharp, pointy device as it can damage your gums or tooth surface. Give Evident Care Dental a call if you can’t get the object out.
You can put a piece of softened sugarless chewing gum in the opening where the filling was lost. This will temporarily protect the area until you can see us at Evident Care Dental.
At Evident, we believe in informing and educating our patients about oral health. We invite you to learn about some of the more important aspects of dental care.
