Immediate action is necessary otherwise the problem could worsen. Reacting to the issue quickly gives you the best chance of keeping your mouth healthy and your teeth intact. Even waiting just an hour or a few minutes longer can mean the difference between losing or saving a tooth.
Injuries that seem small and superficial can still affect the living tissues inside the teeth, which may cause more dental problems in the near future. This is true even if you are not experiencing much pain now, so do not wait any longer to seek proper attention for mouth injuries or other dental issues.
A slight nuisance or small issue can sometimes be caused by a larger and more serious dental problem. This is why these signs should never be taken lightly and also why potential issues need to be addressed as soon as possible for immediate treatment.
How to Properly Handle Dental Emergencies
It is important to come to an emergency dentist in Perth as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more you put your health in danger. Additionally, even if you do not feel pain initially, what starts out as a seemingly small issue can become extremely painful quickly. Here are some useful tips if you find yourself in this situation:
Broken or Chipped Tooth: If you find any pieces or fragments, be sure to save them. Additionally, if bleeding is present, then apply gauze to the area to minimise or stop the flow of blood. Do not try to eat anything as this can lead to further chipping or breaking of the tooth.
Lost Filling or Crown: This can be a very serious and painful problem, so call a dental office immediately. Do not throw away the filling or the crown. Saving them can allow the dentist to put it back in. Even if the dentist has to make you a new filling or crown, having the broken one can help the dentist understand why it failed in the first place.
Injuries to the Soft Tissue: If your gums, cheeks, tongue or lips become injured, you need to control any bleeding by applying a wet gauze to the area. Apply pressure with the gauze for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse your mouth out with a mixture of warm water and a small amount of salt. This will help healing, pain relief, and minimise the risk of infection.
Toothaches: These are probably the most common reason why people see dentists, but they still need to be treated seriously. Rinsing the mouth with warm water can help, as can applying a cold compress to any swollen areas. If you see food lodged in your teeth, be sure to gently remove it with dental floss.
If you are experiencing any dental emergencies, please contact Aurora Smiles Dental Care immediately so that we can address the issue in an efficient manner. Our experienced emergency dentists in Perth will always assess your situation and discuss the best treatment options that are available to you.
