Steps to Follow when a Dental Emergency Occurs

Dental emergencies can be a major concern and can occur in the most unexpected times. They can be difficult to manage and result in tooth loss, enamel damage, trauma, gum damage, or severe pain. You will need a West Hollywood emergency dentist to provide prompt care to resolve these conditions.

During an emergency, you must stay calm and focus on stopping any bleeding or additional injury. Aspirin or ibuprofen is not recommended for a dental emergency because they can cause excessive bleeding. Pain can be alleviated with acetaminophen.

If the cause of the emergency was a knocked out tooth, you must be very careful not to disturb any tissue attached to the tooth. Rinse your mouth gently and try re-inserting it into the socket. If you cannot do it, do not force the issue and place the tooth in a clean container and see the dentist right away.

If there is any swelling, apply an ice pack to alleviate it and ease pain. For bleeding, use a sterile gauze and apply it gently, with small pressure to control the bleeding.

The best action to take during any kind of dental emergency is to call your dentist and schedule an immediate visit.
