Accidents, tooth damage, and dental injuries can occur at night or day, requiring immediate medical attention. Having an emergency dentist to visit under such circumstances helps you save your teeth.
Dr. Christopher L. Louie, DDS, and Dr. Victoria Louie, at Louie Family Dentistry in Fremont, California, are well aware of these scenarios and hence offer Emergency Dentistry for their patients.
When Is Emergency Dentistry Necessary?
Emergency dentistry is essential when you have suffered dental trauma. Our dental treatments ensure your teeth are taken care of while they make every effort to offer you pain relief and repair your tooth.
Here are a few instances when emergency dental care is required:
- Chipped, Broken, or Fractured Teeth
- Abscessed Teeth
- Knocked-Out Teeth
- Lost Crown or Filling
- Severe Tooth Damage
- Loose braces
What Should You Do When You Have a Dental Emergency?
In the aftermath of a dental emergency, the immediate steps you take are vital to losing or saving a tooth. Here are a few dental emergency scenarios and the appropriate to-dos.
- If your tooth is knocked out permanently, see if you can put it back in the socket without interfering with the exposed tooth root. If that isn’t possible, put it in a bottle of milk or place it between the gums and teeth and rush to your dentist.
- If you have a toothache caused by food debris, rinse your mouth with water or floss to dislodge them.
- If you have a tongue or soft tissue bleed after a fall, gently clean the area with water, apply gauze, and put pressure to stem the bleeding. Use a cold compress to prevent swelling and rush to our dental office.
- If you have suffered a cracked tooth, gently rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to prevent pain and discomfort, and head to our office in Fremont.
- If you have objects stuck in your mouth, gently attempt to floss them out. Please refrain from using sharp objects to remove them.
