What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency?
In general, any dental problem that requires immediate treatment, such as toothache, gum swelling, cracked or knocked out tooth is considered to be a dental emergency. All dental emergencies should be treated as soon as possible, to prevent you from further damage to your teeth or surrounding tissues, discomfort or worsening of the pain. Our emergency dentist at Schellenberg Dental will thoroughly asses the area of concern and provide you with treatment options that will see you leave our office pain and worry-free.
Can a Knocked-Out Tooth Be Put Back In?
It might surprise you to know that you can indeed have a knocked-out tooth put back in; however, the success rate depends highly on the response time. Often, a permanent tooth will reimplant itself if it is put back in within minutes of being knocked out. If your tooth gets knocked out, pick it up by the crown, rinse underwater (do not touch or remove any remaining tissues on the root) and place it back in the socket while gently biting back. If you are not successful, place the tooth in a small container to protect the root from any damage. Seek immediate dental attention following the accident.
