Knocked-Out Tooth in El Paso
Dental emergencies don’t happen often, but when they do reaction time is a critical factor in treatment. For instance, if a tooth has been knocked out, you need to get to the dentist within 30 minutes to try to save the tooth. Try to place the tooth back in the socket if not broken, and gently bite down so that it does not fall out. If this is not possible or if the tooth is broken, put the tooth in a glass of milk and bring it into our dentist. We will do our best to save the tooth.
Is it a Dental Emergency?
It’s important to understand the difference between a normal dental issue that can wait till the morning, and a full-blown dental emergency that may even be life-threatening. You can ask yourself these questions to determine whether you have a dental emergency.
- Do you severe pain, swelling, or bleeding?
- Have you lost a tooth?
- Do you have loose teeth?
A dental emergency occurs when a tooth has suffered severe trauma or decay. Severe swelling from an abscess or bleeding also constitutes a dental emergency. An adult should never have loose teeth.
There are many different reasons you may be having a dental emergency. Common dental emergencies include:
- Permanent tooth knocked out
- Broken, loose or cracked tooth/teeth
- Severe tooth decay or toothache
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Broken jaw
- Object caught between teeth
