Prompt Care for Urgent Dental Needs
Dental emergencies can occur suddenly and unexpectedly, causing severe pain, trauma, or other urgent dental issues. At Tajmeel Clinic, we recognize the importance of immediate care when it comes to dental emergencies. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing prompt and effective treatment to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and restore your oral health.
Common Dental Emergencies
- Toothache: Persistent or severe toothache can be a sign of underlying dental issues, such as an infection or tooth decay.
- Knocked-Out Tooth: If a tooth gets completely knocked out, it is crucial to seek immediate dental attention. Quick action may increase the chances of successful re-implantation.
- Cracked or Fractured Tooth: A cracked or fractured tooth can cause pain, sensitivity, and leave the inner layers vulnerable to infection. Treatment is necessary to prevent further damage.
- Lost or Damaged Dental Restoration: If a dental crown, filling, or bridge becomes loose, damaged, or dislodged, it can cause discomfort and compromise the function of your teeth.
- Severe Gum or Soft Tissue Injury: Trauma to the gums or soft tissues in the mouth, such as cuts, lacerations, or puncture wounds, require immediate attention to prevent infection and promote healing.
- Abscess or Infection: An abscessed tooth or oral infection can cause severe pain, swelling, and general illness. Timely treatment is essential to prevent the spread of infection.
Steps to Take During a Dental Emergency
- Stay Calm: It’s important to remain calm and collected during a dental emergency. This will help you make clear decisions and seek appropriate care promptly.
- Contact Our Dental Practice: Call our Clinic Helpline 800825 immediately to explain the situation and schedule an emergency appointment. Our dedicated team will guide you on what to do next.
- Manage Pain and Discomfort: In the meantime, you can use a cold compress on the affected area to reduce swelling and take over-the-counter pain relievers as directed.
- Preserve a Knocked-Out Tooth: If a tooth is completely knocked out, handle it by the crown (top part) and gently rinse it with milk or saliva. Do not scrub or remove any attached tissues. If possible, try to reinsert the tooth back into its socket while seeking immediate dental care.
- Protect Damaged Teeth: For cracked or fractured teeth, rinse your mouth with warm water and cover the tooth with dental wax or sugarless gum to protect it until you receive professional treatment.
