What Is a Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency is a problem related to your mouth, teeth, jaws, or gums that requires immediate assistance. In these cases, the sooner we can get you into our office, the better.
Examples of dental emergencies include:
- Extreme tooth pain
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Broken Jaw
- Dislodged tooth
All of the above examples are a reason to call Wackford Dental right away. Furthermore, any jaw pain, aches, or severe soreness, can be a sign of tooth infection or an abscessed tooth. If you experience any of these symptoms, don’t hesitate to call 916-683-3841 — the sooner we can get you in, the sooner we can relieve your pain.
What Do I Do If My Tooth Falls Out?
If your tooth gets knocked out, there’s a chance we can save it if you get to our office in time.
In these cases, avoid handling the tooth as much as possible. If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket and biting on a wet washcloth or another soft, moist material.
If the tooth won’t remain in the socket, we recommend placing it in a clean container of milk or your saliva. Milk is a proven short-term preservative for knocked-out teeth because it contains proteins that maintain a consistent acid-to-alkaline ratio, antibacterial substances, and sugars to keep the cells growing.
If you’re experiencing any bleeding, apply a cold, damp compress to slow bleeding and reduce the pain.
