Emergency Dentist Heathwood
A dental emergency is any situation that poses an immediate threat to the health of your teeth and supporting tissues. Dental emergencies are often the result of impact to the mouth, but also can be caused by infection. To ensure the best possible outcome, a dental emergency should be evaluated by a professional as soon as possible. Common dental emergencies include cracked or chipped teeth, avulsed (knocked out) teeth, and objects caught between teeth. In the event of a dental emergency, it is important to remain calm and contact your dentist or local hospital immediately.
If you are not able to see a dentist right away, there are some steps you can take to minimise damage and pain. For instance, if you have an avulsed (knocked out) tooth, try to find the tooth and hold it by the crown (the white part). If it is dirty, gently rinse it with water but do not scrub it.
