Answers About Dental Emergencies

Every dental emergency should be taken seriously. Ignoring or putting off a dental problem risks more serious consequences and can potentially require more extensive and costly treatment. Marietta emergency dentist, Kirk Kimmerling DDS advises regularly scheduled dental visits to help avoid dental emergencies.

Some of the more common dental emergencies are a result of toothaches, chipped or broken teeth, knocked-out or dislodged teeth, lost fillings, objects caught between teeth, swollen tissue, injuries, cavities and lost crowns or bridges. Each of these can become a serious situation, so never just ignore.

Many people will tell you toothaches can be excruciating, and something they never want to re-live. People that do not see a dentist, will schedule to alleviate the pain. The dentist may recommend a root canal or extraction as the only solution. Pro-active dental care can help avoid these situations.

Now let’s look at some situations.

If a tooth is chipped or broken, take any pieces to the dentist. Many times, it makes the repair a simpler and bet process. This too is a situation that is best to see the dentist as soon as possible.

Knock-out teeth should be rinsed with milk or warm water is not available. Do not scrub the tooth, as the tiny fibers are necessary for the tooth to reattach. If possible, place the tooth back in the socket in the proper position. If impossible, place the tooth in the cheek area until arriving at the emergency dentist. Never use the cheek on a child or unconscious person. In that case, place it in milk, or lightly salted warm water. It is now a race for time, as the sooner the tooth is replaced in the socket, the higher the chance the re-implantation will take. A partially dislodged tooth should be immediately put back in position if possible and a dentist seen immediately. A soft tissue injury to the gums, lips, cheeks or tongue may require stitches. A cold compress can help to control bleeding until professional help is available.

Objects caught between teeth can sometimes be dislodged by using dental floss. Otherwise a dentist is your next option. Lost dental fillings can only be replaced by the dentist, so a visit should be scheduled right away. Lost crowns can be temporarily cemented with toothpaste, Vaseline or denture adhesive from the local drug store if the tooth has become sensitive until a visit to the dentist can be scheduled. Be careful not to swallow the crown.

If you have swelling or an infection around the tooth or in the gums, a dentist here too needs to been seem immediately, because it could result in a more serious health condition or destroy surrounding tissue and teeth.

The best medicine is prevention. See your dentist on a regular basis.

Made me feel comfortable and at ease




I get really nervous at a Dentist office but Dr. McGrath really put me at ease and took the time to explain what he was doing and to make sure I was ok through the entire process. The interaction between him and his staff showed that they knew what they were doing and worked as a team for my benefit and well being. This temp crown feels better than the original tooth! Great experience!!!!
