Below you will find a list of frequently asked questions about emergency dental care:

What should you do in case of a dental emergency?

In the event of an emergency, immediately call the Deu Dental Care and schedule an appointment. Describe your emergency in detail so you can get instant advice before your scheduled appointment.

How can you cure a toothache?

Immediately contact a dentist in case you are suffering from a toothache. Take some recommended painkillers like Paracetamol or Ibuprofen. You should make sure that you read the label first and avoid going over the maximum dose.

In cases of swelling, what should you do?

Usually, a swelling occurs because of an infection. There might be a slight infection in your teeth or gum tissue, or there might even be large amount of abscess that has to be drained. An infected swelling would usually feel quite tender and warm to the touch. You have to call immediately so you could be accurately diagnosed. After checking your teeth thoroughly, an appropriate treatment would be prescribed, as well as antibiotics.

What should you do in case your crown falls off?

You have to keep your crown secure so you can have it re-cemented as soon as you can to prevent further damage. Sometimes, a root canal treatment is recommended. Call Deu Dental Care immediately in case this happens.

What should you do in case you have a broken denture?

Usually, a broken denture is relatively easy to repair. But never attempt to repair it on your own since this could result to further damage. Immediately schedule an appointment for repair.

What are dental injuries?

Dental injuries include teeth that may be forced out of its position (extruded), broken (fractured) or knocked out. Injuries to the mouth are generally painful and have to be immediately treated by a dentist.

Knocked Out Teeth

Once a tooth has been knocked out, you should recover it and remove any dirt or debris by washing it. You should not handle the root so you could protect the fibers in the root surface. But you can try to put the clean tooth back in its socket since it is possible to re-implant the tooth within 30 minutes of injury. Or you could alternatively store the tooth inside a glass of cold milk. Immediately schedule an appointment by calling the dental emergency hotline.

Extruding Teeth

If the tooth is pushed inward or outward and is out of place, you should apply a light finger pressure to reposition it to its normal alignment. Do not force it into its socket. Use a moist tissue or gauze to hold the tooth in its place. Immediately see a dentist.

Fractured Teeth

The treatment of a fractured tooth depends on the degree of its injury. But whatever the degree of damage might be, you should see a dentist to get the appropriate treatment. Do not panic because it is easy to restore a fractured tooth. But if it feels painful, try to avoid biting in that area or eating hot or cold foods for the mean time.

Minor Fracture

For a minor fracture, a dentist can smooth it out and minimize the injury or do a composite restoration to it. Take extra care of your tooth for several days after treatment.

Moderate Fracture

You may have a moderate fracture if there is damage to your enamel, dentin or pulp. A permanent crown may be used if there is no permanent damage to the pulp. But if there were damage to it, then you would need further treatment.

Severe Fracture

Usually, a severe fracture would mean that the tooth is traumatized and there is little chance of recovery. Dental injuries include puncture wounds, tears and lacerations to the tongue, cheek or lips. In the event of an injury, have the wound cleaned, sutured and repaired. If there is bleeding due to a tongue laceration, then try to pull the tongue forward and use gauze to put some pressure on it.

A dental abscess can cause pain, swelling and redness of the gums, bad breath, draining pus, and a temperature. If you have a bad toothache and/or are experiencing any of the above symptoms, call and visit your Deu Dental Clinic immediately. A dental abscess results from an infection either within the tooth itself, and immediately adjacent to the tooth/teeth in the gum tissue and/or supporting bone. If not treated, more serious problems can result, such as a cellulitis. This will cause massive swelling to that area of your face and can be life-threatening. The treatment may include root canal therapy and/or gum surgery to resolve the infections. Antibiotics will be prescribed, and possibly pain medication if the pain is severe. A dental abscess can result in tooth loss if not treated immediately!

The first thing your dentist will do is to examine your mouth and take the appropriate X-rays, so that they can determine which tooth or teeth are involved. There are also other tests that can be performed, such as percussion, heat and cold tests, and electrical stimulation tests to see if the tooth is dead. Your bite will also be checked to make sure that the pain is not caused by your tooth/teeth touching prematurely or at a wrong angle to each other. The dental abscess may be too far progressed to save the tooth, in which case the tooth/teeth will require removal. If an infection is present, your dentist may prescribe antibiotics to clear up the infection before the tooth is removed. If this is not done, the infection may spread through the blood system. In addition, your dentist will place an ice-pack on your face and have you rinse with warm-salt-water (e.g., one teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of warm water). There are things that you can do to prevent a dental abscess, which include brushing and flossing your teeth, and avoided sugary snacks between meals. Visit Deu Dental Clinic regularly to prevent getting a dental abscess.
