Many scenarios can result in an urgent dental problem, not just a tooth that gets knocked out or a broken jaw. It could be the toothache that wakes you up in the middle of the night, the crunchy snack that chips a tooth or the chewy one that dislodges a filling.
Common dental emergencies include:
- Broken or cracked tooth.
- Broken jaw.
- Tooth that has been knocked out.
- Dislodged filling.
- Object caught between teeth.
- Severe toothache.
These issues can cause difficulty with eating, drinking, sleeping – even breathing. Intense pain could be caused by any number of problems with your teeth, tongue, gums or jaw.
Many people don’t know what to do when faced with a dental emergency.
- Is it necessary to go to the hospital?
- Should you place a hot cloth or a cold cloth on the jaw?
- Is it a good idea to take painkillers?
- Should you save a lost tooth and bring it in, and if so how best to store it?
