What is a dental emergency?
Dr Harmanpreet Kaur, the Board-certified dentist of Plainfield, NJ explains that if you are not sure whether or not you are having a true dental emergency, answer the following questions:
- Is there bleeding in the mouth?
- Are you troubled with severe pain in the mouth?
- Is your broken tooth causing pain?
- Do you have any loose teeth?
- Have you suffered physical trauma to the face or the mouth?
- Is there a sudden swelling in the face or the mouth?
- Do you have any bulges, swelling, or knots on your gums?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be having a dental emergency and should call Dr Harmanpreet Kaur immediately.
Fixing a chipped tooth, re-cementing a crown that is not causing pain, or composite fillings used to repair a tooth are not dental emergencies. Typically, such problems can be dealt with during your dentist’s regular office hours.
How To Handle A Dental Emergency?
When you face a situation that you think is a dental emergency, it is necessary to stay calm. Fear and anxiety invoke more panic which does not help you to remain clear-headed. It is absolutely necessary to have a clear head when handling these situations. The first step that you must follow under any circumstances is calling the dentist and describing exactly what has happened and what you are feeling.
This will help the dentist to guide you through your dilemma for the time being or until you reach the clinic. Dr Harmanpreet Kaur believes that this step is very crucial as the clinic can be prepared for the incoming situation without wasting precious time.
