Tooth problems can occur any time of the day or the night, and toothaches can be extremely intense. The sort of pain is typically not something that you may be able to bear even for a few hours. It is not a good idea to wait for it to resolve on its own. If you’re suffering from any sort of tooth or gum problems that you need help with immediately, an emergency dentist is someone who can help you.
What are some emergency dental requirements?
There are a few problems that can occur which would warrant a visit to the emergency dentist. Any of the below problems could constitute a dental emergency.
Toothache: A toothache could be caused because of decay or infection of the nerve, wisdom tooth growing out, or gum infection. You may have to undergo root canal treatment or remove the tooth. Even if you feel that the pain is bearable, it is better to consult with your emergency dentist in order to prevent the condition from worsening.
If your teeth get damaged because of some kind of trauma, you will need to get it checked immediately. You may be able to save the tooth even if it is knocked out, but only if you can get to the emergency dental clinic on time. Even if you have to visit the dentist late night or during public holidays, our emergency dentists will always be available to help you.
If you have a tooth filling that has dislodged, or a fractured tooth because you bit down on something hard, you will feel excruciating pain. This constitutes a dental emergency which will need to be attended to as soon as possible.
What is the information you need to provide the emergency dentist?
In order to get the best treatment for your condition, you must necessarily disclose your complete medical history. The information that you need to provide the emergency dentist will include the following:
- What is the nature of the pain? Is it constant and unrelenting, or does it come and go?
- Where exactly do you feel the pain?
- How long have you been suffering from pain?
- What worsens the pain?
- How long does the pain last every time?
Should you be seeing the emergency dentist if you’re pregnant?
There is absolutely no reason why you should visit the emergency dentist if you are pregnant. We do not take any x-rays at all during the first trimester. It is safe for both the mother and the baby to take diagnostic x-rays after this time. If you’re pregnant, the dentist will prescribe only medications that are perfectly safe for your unborn child. If you have a dental problem, you must visit the dentist as soon as possible because it can be risky to leave it untreated especially when you’re pregnant.
Is it safe to visit the emergency dentist if you are breastfeeding?
The emergency dentist will ensure that all medication prescribed are completely safe for your newborn child. So there is absolutely no reason why you should visit the dentist when you are breastfeeding.
What should you do in a dental emergency?
First of all, remain calm. You may be in agonizing pain, but make sure that you or someone else gets in touch with the dentist’s office as soon as possible. If you are unable to speak, you can ask someone to relay the message to the dentist so he or she will be able to give the appropriate instructions on what to do till you get to the clinic. Try and get to the clinic as soon as possible.
What are some tips to deal with dental pain while you get to the clinic?
If you have a toothache, apply cold compress over the area. You may use a toothbrush or dental floss to dislodge any food particles that may be stuck between the teeth. Rinse your mouth with warm water, and take over the counter pain relief medication.
If your tooth got knocked out, gently pick it up by the crown without touching the root. Gently rinse off any dirt using running water, and do not attempt to remove any tissues that may be still attached to the tooth. Place it back into the socket and apply firm pressure to hold it in place. You will need to reinsert the tooth within about an hour after the accident. If the truth cannot be put back in place, put it in a glass of milk and take it to the dentist immediately.
Is it expensive to call out an emergency dentist after hours?
The after hours call out surcharge is $175. Therefore, your total cost is the normal treatment fee + $175. The fee is not cheap however it is fair as the dentist and nurse need to travel to the clinic at odd hours just to see you.
