TRAUMATIC DENTAL INJURIES
A lost permanent tooth requires immediate action. To further reduce the damage and increase the probability of saving the tooth, pick it up without touching the root, gently clean it off with water, and put it back in its socket facing the correct way.
Acute or persistent tooth pain requires an urgent visit to the dental office. The most common cause of dental pain is tooth decay, a bacterial infection that can spread through many parts of the tooth, and even into the gum tissue.
Injuries and infections involving the soft tissues of the mouth may also require emergency treatment. The tissues of the gums, tongue, or cheek lining can be damaged by accidental bites, falls, sports injuries, and scalding liquids.
Trauma or injury to the face, mouth or teeth is an orthodontic emergency that requires immediate treatment. Infection or swelling of the face, mouth or gums or severe discomfort also requires immediate attention.
