Everyone knows that accidents happen. However, getting proper care in emergency situations can be a challenge. At Comprehensive Family Dentistry in Feasterville-Trevose, Pennsylvania, V.H. Mandalia, DDS, and Neil Mandalia, DMD, offer emergency dental services to make sure your urgent needs are addressed promptly. If you have a dental emergency, call right away.
An emergency dentist addresses issues that require immediate dental attention. In most cases, getting immediate treatment for a dental injury can make all the difference in saving or losing a tooth.
The team at Comprehensive Family Dentistry understands that accidents can happen at any time. That’s why the practice offers after-hours appointments for oral injuries.
It’s essential that you distinguish a dental emergency from an injury that can wait a day for treatment. You should consider calling Comprehensive Family Dentistry immediately if you experience any of the following:
Your adult teeth shouldn’t move at all. If you notice that a tooth is unstable, it might be a sign of decay or infection, or it might be due to acute trauma.
Knocked-out teeth are one of the most common types of dental emergencies. If your tooth is knocked out, you may also have nerve and tissue damage. Don’t wait to address this. Contact Comprehensive Family Dentistry immediately.
If a tooth has chipped, fractured, or cracked, you need to seek treatment right away. And in general, the more intense the pain is, the faster you need medical attention.
Tissue injuries can come about as a result of lacerations, tears in your lip, puncture wounds, and more. You’ll know you’re suffering from a tissue injury if you find it difficult to open and close your mouth.
If one of your teeth gets knocked out, pick it up by the crown. If it’s dirty, wash it gently with water. Then, if possible, try to put your tooth back in its socket. Hold it in place with your hand or by biting gently. If you can’t put it back in your socket, place your tooth in your mouth next to your cheek or in a cup of milk. Also, make sure to call Comprehensive Family Dentistry immediately.
If you have a dental emergency, call Comprehensive Family Dentistry right away.
