Has your tooth been knocked out? If you can get to a dentist within an hour, there is a good chance the tooth can be saved. Follow these steps and visit your dentist as soon as possible:
Not all cracked and chipped teeth are considered dental emergencies. But, if you are in a great deal of discomfort or pain (or the nerve or pulp of the tooth is exposed), you should treat it as an emergency and visit your dentist right away. If the tooth has chipped off, keep the piece of tooth in either a glass of milk or a spit-wetted paper towel until you can reach a dentist’s office.
Call your dentist if you are not sure whether your chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth constitutes a dental emergency. Your dentist will advise you on the best way to proceed. Compromised teeth can often be treated with a dental crown, implant, veneer, or root canal therapy.
If you have been treated for dental trauma, the dentist will provide you with aftercare instructions specific to your condition. Therefore, the care recommendations provided by your dentist may differ from these general care tips. After being treated for a dental injury, it is generally advised that you:
Oral abscess is a condition in which there is pus released in the mouth. It generally occurs after tooth extraction surgery. The main reason for this to happen is that there is a certain bacterial infection. This can cause tremendous pain in the infected region. If it is caused due to a bacteria belonging to the Streptococcus genus, it will also have ill effects on the heart. If an individual suspect’s pus in their mouth after the surgery, they must instantly rush to the nearest dental emergency facility.
No. Bleeding after the surgery for a few minutes is normal, If the bleeding continues after 8 hours without clot formation, it is not at all normal. If this situation occurs, one must consult the dentist as fast as possible.
If a tooth of a person is knocked out, the tooth must be held by the crown and not by the roots. Clean it gently and try to put it back in the socket by positioning it correctly, but gently and not by forcing it. Visit an endodontist or dentist. These actions must be taken within 30 minutes of the injury only.
The tooth abscess is caused due to bacterial infection. It has many ill effects on health including reduced movement of the jaw, tremendous pain, and, in some cases, can also cause chronic coronary heart disease.
In the case of tooth abscess, the risk is not at all recommended to be taken. Visit a dentist as soon as possible if the tooth abscess is suspected.
