What Are The Most Common Dental Emergencies?

The most common dental emergencies are related to oral trauma. A slip and fall, car accident, or a hard hit in a contact sport can cause damage to your teeth and gums. The most common trauma-related dental emergencies include knocked-out (avulsed), loose, cracked, or chipped teeth. Oral trauma may also cause lacerations and cuts to the tongue, gums, cheeks, and lips. If these cuts are deep and bleeding excessively, they may need to be stitched by a dentist. 

Damage to dental work is another common dental emergency. This includes a loose or missing crown or filling. When dental work is pulled-out, it’s important to have it replaced immediately  because your exposed enamel may be weak and vulnerable to damage and decay.

Persistent toothaches are also considered a dental emergency, and can often indicate an infected tooth. If your toothache is severe and lasts for more than a day or two, come in for an emergency appointment. If your oral issue is causing you serious pain, discomfort or bleeding and you do not think that you can treat it on your own, you’re having an emergency. Contact us for an appointment right away.

What Should I Do If I Have A Loose Crown Or Filling?

If your crown or filling is still attached to the tooth, avoid moving it with your tongue, chewing on that side of your mouth, and any other actions that may loosen it further. If your filling or crown comes out completely, recover it and put it in a plastic baggie, and bring it in with you when you see Dr. Barker. Repairing or replacing your damaged dental work as soon as possible will help you avoid other issues. Give us a call at (919) 589-5001 to let us know that you’re coming in for an emergency appointment.
